The iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max will be the main protagonists of the great launch event that Apple will be held at the end of this year. One more year, those of Cupertino will renew their most successful product, and for some time now we have been able to collect enough information related to its features, specifications and prices.
The leaks have not given us a break for months, and now that the date of presentation of the iPhone 15 is coming, we can already get a more or less clear idea of what to expect in the next fundamental from Apple
iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro, when will they be presented?
After WWDC, the presentation event for the new iPhone is one of the most important events celebrated by Apple throughout the year, if not the most. Over the last few years, we have seen how the company has maintained a more or less regular frequency when it comes to holding its launch events, choosing the first weeks of September to carry out his fundamental.
Barring some kind of last minute delay, chances are that The iPhone 15 will also be presented in the first weeks of Septembermost likely the day 5 or day 12 of the month, since the company usually makes its presentations coincide with the first or second Tuesday of September.
Once they are presented, the new iPhone can be purchased only a few weeks later in all markets of the world.
Leaked prices: how much will the iPhone 15 cost?
If we take into account the latest rumors about the iPhone 15, it is most likely that in September we will witness the arrival of the most expensive iPhone ever.
Of course, the iPhone 15 Pro Max would be the most expensive model of the four terminals that are expected to be presented (iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max). Rumors, yes, do not indicate how much will the increase be.
Features of the iPhone 15
Through the leaks that have come to light over the weeks, we can get a general idea of the features that the iPhone 15 will carry. From layout and screen sizeeven the processor, the news of its cameras or the size of its batteries.
New colors and “action” button
By this time of the year it has become clear that the iPhone 15 will not introduce major changes to its design compared to previous models. The company will maintain a continuity philosophy, although it will carry out some modifications that will have some importance.
Thanks to information shared by the portal 9to5macIt has been known that this new version will include new building materialsat least on the “Pro” series models.
This year, Apple would have decided leave stainless steel behind to jump to titaniuma lighter material but as resistant to scratches and blows as the one currently used.
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus would not have the same material, but they will share with the “Pro” models a change that will take place in their construction, and that consists of a slightly rounded metal bezel at the ends of the device.
Another difference will be found in the buttons. Although it had been rumored that the physical volume buttons would disappear from the iPhone 15 to give way to pressure-sensitive haptic buttons, everything seems to indicate that, finally, Apple would have decided to discard this change.
What is not ruled out is that the already mythical “silence” switch that has been present on one of the sides of the device since the first iPhone, now become a simple button. Some dare to suggest that this button will be customizablein a similar way to action button of the Apple Watch Ultra.
The renders based on official design schematics have also revealed that the edges that will surround the screen of the iPhone 15 Pro will be narrower than those of the previous generation, going on to measure only 1.55 millimeters wide. Likewise, the brand would have decided recover the curves both on the screen and on the rear panel, although these will be very subtle.
And what about the colors? We already know that the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max will retain the typical space grey, white and gold, and in addition it will be necessary to add a new dark red tone.
For their part, the iPhone 15 colors they would be star white, midnight, light yellow, mint green, pink and red. In addition, as a novelty, Apple would have decided to use a new matte glass finish on the back of these two devices.
Recently, we were also able to meet details about screens of the devices. Although there will be hardly any major changes in terms of size, technology and features, it is known that all iPhone 15 models will use the new M12 materials OLED technology, more efficient and of higher quality than the previous generation. This is the same type of panel that Samsung uses in its Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5.
Otherwise, OLED LTPO and ProMotion technology they will continue to be exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Larger cameras and telephoto with periscope lens
All the renders of the iPhone 15 Pro that we have been able to see to date make one thing clear: Apple will make major improvements to the camera again of your new flagship device.
The changes are appreciable by the camera module sizenoticeably thicker than that of the iPhone 14 Pro. Interestingly, the iPhone 15 Pro would have a thicker camera than the iPhone 15 Pro Maxand everything seems to indicate that it is due to the inclusion of a periscope lens that will accompany the telephoto lens of the larger model.
These types of lenses allow reduce the size of the camera modulesince they use a prism that reflects light towards the internal lenses, located at 90 degrees with respect to the camera sensor, saving space and improving device capabilities as far as zoom is concerned. In that sense, the iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to be able to offer 6 to 8x optical zoom.
But not only the iPhone 15 Pro will arrive with improvements in this regard. The latest rumors suggest that the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will debut a new 48-megapixel main camera similar to what we saw on the iPhone 14 Pro last year.
USB-C arrives and the batteries grow
The wait has been longer than we expected, but finally, the USB C port is coming to the iPhone. Apple has been forced to comply with the regulations imposed by the European Union, and will leave the Lightning connector behind once and for all to make way for USB C.
This, in turn, will open the door to faster and more efficient charging systemsalthough the company would continue to limit the use of third-party chargers and cables, since it will restrict those that do not have the MFi certification or Made for iPhone.
But that will not be the only novelty. Everything seems to indicate that Apple is going to increase the capacity of batteries of the four models, with increases of up to 18%. If the rumors are true, these would be the increases compared to the previous generation:
- iPhone 15: 3877 mAh (18% increase)
- iphone 15 plus: 4912 mAh (13.6% increase)
- iPhone 15 Pro: 3650 mAh (14.1% increase)
- iPhone 15 Pro Max: 4852 mAh (10.9% increase)
Of course, Apple will retain MagSafe technologyand it seems that this year it will be improved thanks to the support for the Qi2 wireless charging standard.
Other details that are known about its technical sheet are the use of a new Apple A17 Bionic processor manufactured in 3 nanometer process, iOS 17 as operating system, new Ultra Wide Band chip compatible with Apple Vision Pro and more. As the weeks go by, we will get to know more details about the iPhone 15.
