People are waiting for the new iPhone 15, which will be revealed at an Apple event in September. Last year's iPhone 14 could have been more exciting, especially compared to the iPhone 14 Pro, which had some cool features like a better camera.
This year, there will be four different iPhone 15 models in two sizes, each with a regular version and a fancier "Pro" version. The Pro models are expected to have significant upgrades, but people are also curious about what the regular models will be like.
Let's see what we can learn about the iPhone 15 rumors!
What Is The Release Date For The Rumored iPhone 15?
Apple will likely reveal the new iPhone 15 in early September, possibly on Tuesday the 5th or 12th, and release it on either September 15th or 22nd. Historically, Apple released new iPhones in September and made them available for pre-order a few days before they hit the stores. For example, the iPhone 14 lineup was announced on September 6th, available for pre-order on September 9th, and went on sale on September 16th.
Based on this pattern, it's reasonable to expect the iPhone 15 launch date to be September 5th. Alternatively, Apple could announce the device on September 12th and release it on September 22nd. However, there is no reason to believe that Apple won't adhere to its usual September release schedule this year.
iPhone 15 Rumored Display & Sizes
According to analyst Ross Young, rumors suggest that the Dynamic Island feature will be available on all iPhone 15 models, not just the Pro version, as was the case with the iPhone 14. Leaked images suggest it's unclear if the base model iPhone 15 will have a 120Hz refresh rate or an Always-On Display, which may be exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro.
The iPhone 15 lineup will likely include a 6.1-inch iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 15 Pro Max. However, leaked Expected renders from February 2023 suggest that Apple might reduce the bezel on the iPhone 15 models, giving users more screen space.
Additionally, the OLED display could use a new display driver to make it more energy-efficient. Switching from the old 40nm process to an expected 28nm process could improve performance.
iPhone 15 Rumored Design
The iPhone 15's appearance is anticipated to resemble that of the iPhone 14, with a similar size and shape. This means we can expect the same bezels, squared edges, and rounded corners. The significant design change for the iPhone 15 is predicted to be the new Dynamic Island feature, which was introduced with the iPhone 14 Pro.
Despite previous rumors of Touch ID returning, Face ID is expected to be the only biometric authentication system offered for the iPhone 15. Additionally, a report suggests that Apple may replace physical buttons with Tapti Engines, similar to the iPhone SE Home Button, for both volume and power. However, this feature will likely be exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro. Finally, the proximity sensor may also be relocated into the Dynamic Island for the iPhone 15.
iPhone 15 Rumored Colors
We don't have much information about the colors of the iPhone 15, but we can make predictions based on previous models. If Apple follows its usual pattern, we can expect the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max to come in classic colors like black, gray, silver, and gold. They may also introduce one additional color, similar to the Sierra Blue for iPhone 13 Pro and Deep Purple for iPhone 14 Pro.
On the other hand, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus may come in more colorful options with vibrant shades, including a (Product) RED option that has been popular in previous models.
iPhone 15 Rumored Processor
If Apple does what it did with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro, we can expect the iPhone 15 to have the same A16 Bionic chip as the iPhone 14 Pro. But the iPhone 15 Pro will probably have a new A17 chip, which will make it different from the non-Pro models.
These A17 chips will use a new 3nm technology from TSMC, which should make them more efficient and generate less heat when we use them. The 3nm process means that the chips can work 15% faster while using the same amount of power or 30% less power while working at the same speed as 5nm chips.
People are also talking about the possibility of the iPhone 15 Pro having 8GB of RAM, which would be a significant improvement.
iPhone 15 Rumored Cameras
According to analyst Jeff Pu, the iPhone 15 Pro models could feature Apple's first periscope camera, allowing for up to 5x optical zoom. The technology could even allow for 10x zoom in the future. Companies like Samsung already use Periscope cameras to increase zoom capabilities without adding bulk to the phone.
In addition to the periscope camera, the iPhone 15 is expected to feature a new state-of-the-art sensor from Sony. This sensor will double the saturation signal in each pixel, capturing more light and improving portrait photos and headshots by reducing underexposure and overexposure in specific settings.
iPhone 15 Rumored Storage
Apple's storage plan for the upcoming iPhone 15 release is subject to multiple factors, including the fluctuating prices of components as the launch date approaches. The genuine inquiry is whether the base storage option will see any alterations. Changes are likely dependent on the storage requirements of any new data-intensive camera features that Apple may incorporate into the new models.
On the other hand, Apple may introduce a higher-end 2TB storage option.
iPhone 15 Rumored Price
We don't know how much the iPhone 15 will cost, but it will likely be similar to the prices of other expensive iPhones. The Pro models will probably cost around $1,000 to start, and the regular models will be about $800.
We might learn more about the price as we get closer to when it comes out. Things like how the economy is doing or how much things cost to make could affect the price. The price of the iPhone 14 didn't go up from the iPhone 13 in the United States, but in some other countries, it did because of how their money compares to the US dollar.
No credible rumors have suggested that the iPhone 15 will cost higher than previous iPhone models.
