iPhone 15: everything we know about Apple's new flagship and its "stuffing" before the presentation

The iPhone 15 will be officially unveiled at the Wonderlust presentation on September 12

On Tuesday, September 12, Apple will hold a traditional fall presentation, which is called Wonderlust (from English - Thirst for a miracle). On it for the first time officially show the new flagship iPhone 15, will tell about the "stuffing" of the new smartphone, and probably present something else interesting.

OBOZREVATEL collected the main and most reliable rumors, telling what will be the new iPhone, what will be the colors of the iPhone 15, as well as what will be inside.

Apple iPhone 15 design

The main and even historic difference: the transition from Lightning to USB-C. The transition is voluntary and compulsory, as it's a reaction to European Union rules that require all phones sold after December 28, 2024, to be equipped with a USB-C charging port.

Obviously, since the iPhone 15 is scheduled to be sold next year and in 2025, it doesn't make sense to release it now with native Lightning. Especially since iPads, MacBooks, and third-party accessories for Apple are also moving to USB-C.

New iPhone USB-C port

As for the port itself, there is some disturbing news. It is reported that possibly the ports will be different, depending on the smartphone model. Thus, the "cheaper" iPhone 15 will have a port supporting USB 2.0, which is the same speed as Lightning. At the same time, iPhone 15 Pro models will have a faster USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt. Nothing personal, just business....

Also, if leaks on the web are to be believed, the camera modules in the iPhone 15 Pro could become even larger than those in the iPhone 14 Pro. There's speculation that the lenses themselves will also change months down the line. But it's unlikely that anyone will notice the difference.

Sources also claim that Dynamic Island - an interactive notch replacement - will now be available in all new iPhone models, not just the Pro and Max versions as it was with the iPhone 14.

iPhone 15 Pro

Another possible update is the buttons. It is reported that the side physical keys in the iPhone 15 will be replaced by tactile touch sensors. Similar in its time was the "tactile" button "Home" in the iPhone SE. It is not very clear how it will work with cases... At the same time, on the renders that have hit the network there are buttons, but they almost do not protrude beyond the frames.

By the way, regarding the side frames. As expected, right angles will be a thing of the past. But not quite. Reportedly, the front side of the frame will still have a right angle, while the back side will get a more rounded shape. Probably to make the phone more comfortable to hold in your hands.

The body will supposedly be made of titanium.

As for the display, it may get brighter. Rumor has it that Apple will improve the brightness to 2,500 nits, up from 2,000 nits in the 14 Pro.

And of course, what's a new iPhone without new colors. The iPhone 15 will probably come in green and red, and not for sure, but probably in pink (hello, Barbie!). There is also the possibility that for the first time in 10 years you won't get an iPhone in gold color. In general, the most commonly talked about probability is these colors:

  • Pink/Rose Gold/Rumored Gold;
  • Green;
  • Blue;
  • Yellow;
  • Orange (unlikely, but there are rumors);
  • Black/Midnight/Dark/Basalt.

Apple iPhone 15 Camera

As mentioned above, the modules may become larger, and the lenses themselves will change their location (relative to each other), but will still be located in the upper left corner.

It is expected that the most expensive iPhone 15 will have more than one front selfie camera. Why the second and what is its peculiarity - is still unclear. Perhaps it will be a camera with a wide-angle lens or a better zoom, or a camera with a shallower depth of field for portrait photos with blurred backgrounds.

Camera of the new iPhone 15

There is a possibility that the iPhone 15 camera will have a 48-megapixel main sensor. Previously, it was only available to iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max owners. The regular iPhone 14 had a 12-megapixel main sensor.

There are also rumors that the iPhone 15 camera will use a new CMOS image sensor from Sony. It will be able to capture more light and reduce the likelihood of over- or underexposed images, such as when the subject is backlit.

The size of the iPhone 15

The iPhone 15 lineup is expected to look like this:

  • iPhone 15 (6.1 inches)
  • iPhone 15 Plus (6.7 inches)
  • iPhone 15 Pro (6.1 inches)
  • iPhone 15 Pro Max (6.7 inches)

iPhone 15: thickness: 7.8 mm; length: 147.6 mm; width: 71.6 mm; weight: 171 g.

iPhone 15 Pro: thickness: 8.25 mm; length: 146.6 mm; width: 70.6 mm; weight: 188 g.

iPhone 15 Pro Max: thickness: 8.25mm; length: 159.9mm; width: 76.7mm; weight: 221g.

iPhone 15 specs

According to rumors, the new A17 Bionic chip will only get the more expensive versions of iPhone 15 (probably Pro and Pro Max). Regular iPhone 15 will get the A16 Bionic chip - similar to the one used in the iPhone 14 Pro.

RAM may also be shared. "Cheap" versions will get 6GB of RAM, while the Pro will get 8GB of RAM. More RAM will help the iPhone 15 Pro handle large ProRAW photos and ProRES video files better and faster.

There is also a possibility that to justify the high price, the new iPhone 15 Pro will have more memory. The base model will have 256GB, while 512GB, 1TB and even 2TB models will also be available.

iPhone 15: price and release date

And to the "better" news. If rumors are to be believed, all iPhone models will become more expensive in 2023 due to increased production costs. The iPhone 15 will become more expensive by 12%, and the 15 Pro version will become 20% more expensive at once. This will be the first increase for the US since 2017. Global iPhone prices are rising and without Apple's "permission".

Analysts believe that the iPhone 15 Pro could cost from $1,099 compared to the iPhone 14 Pro's starting price of $999. In that case, the iPhone 15 Pro Max could cost from $1,199.

iPhone 15 2023 price

As for the release date, it is impossible to accurately name it. As a rule, new models go on sale a week after the presentation. According to rumors, this year we will have to wait a little longer. The tentative start of sales is scheduled for September 22 in the United States.

Earlier OBOZREVATEL also told about what expected new products Apple is unlikely to show on September 12.
