iPhone 15

Apple typically announces its new iPhones in September, with most launching on a Tuesday. Taking all that into account, Tuesday 5 September or Tuesday 12 September 2023 is our educated guess for an iPhone 15 launch date.

Among the changes rumored for the iPhone 15 is the introduction of a USB-C port, which will enable faster wired data transfer between iOS and mac/PC devices. In addition, a new titanium model is also reportedly in the works.

September 2023

The iPhone 15 launch date is expected to be September 2023, which is the same time that Apple typically announces its new flagship devices. While it’s hard to make a clear-cut prediction about Apple’s launch calendar, the company often sticks to the same pattern and hasn’t changed its usual launch dates in recent years.

This year, it looks like the company will introduce a new line of smartphones called “iPhone 14.” The new phones should feature some new features as well as design improvements. The most notable changes will be in the display technology and cameras, which were both upgraded with the release of the iPhone 14.

According to rumors, the iPhone 14 Pro models will get a new camera system that includes a dual rear camera as well as a telephoto lens. This new telephoto lens will be able to offer 3X optical zoom, which is a major improvement over the existing telephoto lens found on the standard iPhone models.

There’s also a rumor that the upcoming phone will be the first to include a new periscope lens, which offers a long-range telephoto lens that can reach up to 5X optical zoom. This is likely to be a special feature for the iPhone 15 Pro Max and not available on the standard models, as it would require more space on the device.

One other rumor about the upcoming phone suggests that it could use haptic, solid-state buttons instead of physical ones. This would allow the buttons to be pressed with a tap, and they would also change how cases work with the device.

In addition to this, the upcoming iPhone 15 is also expected to use a new processor, which is rumored to be the first built on TSMC’s new 3nm process. This is expected to come in the form of the A17 Bionic.

The A17 Bionic is a high-performance chip that’s aimed at the top of Apple’s smartphone lineup. It should be able to handle more than enough power for the next generation of iPhones and is likely to include more RAM than previous generations.

6.1-inch and 6.7-inch models

Apple usually unveils new iPhones around the first or second week of September, though it’s sometimes a bit later. The company’s most recent launch was September 7, 2022, for the iPhone 14, with three of the four phones going on sale a week later, on September 16 and October 7.

One major change that will be coming to the iPhone 15 is the replacement of the Lightning port for a USB-C port. The EU has mandated that all electronic devices be compatible with USB-C, and Apple has opted to comply by replacing the Lightning port in the iPhone with a new USB-C port for charging and data transfer.

Another important upgrade is the inclusion of a periscope lens, which is a high-resolution camera for taking wide-angle shots. These lenses have been used on the Apple Watch and iPad Air, and should also be available on the new iPhone 15.

While the base models of the iPhone 15 will continue with an aluminum chassis, the Pro versions could be made out of titanium, similar to what’s used in the Apple Watch Ultra. Titanium is more durable than stainless steel, and has excellent scratch resistance.

In addition to the periscope lens, Apple is expected to add a new feature called Dynamic Island to all of its next-generation iPhones. This feature enables the iPhone 15 to morph the screen into a pill-and-hole cutout, allowing for an expanded display area and removing the need for a notch.

It’s also likely that the iPhone 15 Pro will adopt a new 3-nanometer chip, which means it should have better performance than the A16 chips in the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus. This chip should be able to run new features like the Dynamic Island pill-and-hole cutout and Always On Display.

There’s also a chance the iPhone 15 Pro will feature an improved camera, which might make it the best-performing iPhone ever. The new camera sensor is said to be a stacked design, resulting in faster shutter speeds and less distortion than the 12-megapixel sensors in the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus.

A new Ultra model

Last year, Apple set off a tectonic shift in its iPhone world with the introduction of the ‘iPhone 14 Plus’. The larger device – which also saw the company’s first use of a curved display and solid-state volume power buttons – showed that the tech giant wasn’t afraid to change product names to keep its line-up clearer and easier to understand.

Now, we’re beginning to see that same approach take place again. According to a new report, we may finally be getting a new ‘Ultra’ model – which would sit above the iPhone 15 Pro, and which would see some major improvements.

This model is rumored to feature a 3nm A17 Bionic chip, which should make it significantly faster than the current A16 chips in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models. It should also be more efficient, so that it can use less power, which is especially useful if you’re looking for a battery that can last for a long time without charging.

It’s also rumored that the phone will have a periscope zoom lens, which should make it more capable when it comes to taking better photos. This lens will be able to offer 6x or 10x optical zoom, and likely 30x or 50x digital zoom too.

The iPhone 15 Ultra will also have a bigger screen than the regular iPhone 15, and it will probably have a more powerful battery. It’s also rumored to feature slimmer bezels than the iPhone 14, and this could help users get more content on their screens while still maintaining an acceptable form factor.

We’re also hearing that the phone will be clad in titanium, which will be much lighter and stronger than stainless steel. This will make the phone slightly more expensive, but if it’s worth it for the extra performance and features, it’s certainly a worthwhile investment.

Another major improvement will be the camera system, which is rumored to have a ‘dynamic island’ feature that will be able to adapt to different situations. This should be a significant improvement over the iPhone 13 Pro, and will mean that users have more opportunities to capture images and videos that are more realistic than ever before.

A new name

The rumor mill is always busy, with new information coming out of supply chain sources and industry analysts. We don’t have much to go on when it comes to speculating about Apple’s next-generation iPhone, but we do have some recent leaks that give us a good idea of what the iPhone 15 will look like and feature.

In November, Twitter leaker ShrimpApplePro shared a rumor about the iPhone 15 design, which suggests that it’ll get some serious rounded edges. The phone’s border could be curved to achieve a more rounded look similar to the Apple Watch Ultra, with titanium construction also a possibility as it’s lighter and has better scratch resistance than stainless steel.

This isn’t the only change spotted in this latest rumor, either: The new phone could also have an under-screen sensor. This feature is currently reserved for the iPhone 14 Pro lineup, but it could be added to the new iPhone 15, according to MacRumors’ report.

Another feature could come in the form of a new 5G modem, which would be designed in-house by Apple and manufactured by Qualcomm. But reports from Ming-Chi Kuo and Jeff Pu suggest that it might not be available in time for the iPhone 15 launch date, with the 5G modem expected to only debut in 2023.

The iPhone 15 will likely also see some changes in the cameras, with a new periscope lens system being spotted on CAD designs and reported by respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. This technology allows cameras to increase the distance between the camera’s lens and sensor, which will increase zoom capabilities.

It’s not clear how this will be used in the new iPhone, but it could be a major upgrade to the iPhone’s current telephoto lens.

Several of the biggest phones in the world, including Samsung’s Galaxy S lineup and Huawei’s P20 series, have used periscope lenses to improve their zoom capabilities, and it seems like this could be an option for the iPhone 15.

Other features spotted in these rumors include USB-C support on all models, which means charging will be easier than ever before. Additionally, the new iPhone will be able to support faster data transfer speeds via a USB-C port.
