At this time every year, rumors and leaks about the next generation of iPhone series come from all directions. However, in this information explosion era, it is usually difficult for everyone to pay close attention to every small leak about the new iPhone.

Considering this, we have compiled all the information related to the next generation of iPhone, including its name, design upgrades, performance, price, and release date. Some leaks may excite you, while others may disappoint you.

As usual, this year’s iPhone 15 series may also include four models – two regular models and two large-screen models. Among them, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro are expected to be equipped with a 6.1-inch OLED display, while the iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 15 Pro Max will have a larger 6.7-inch screen. Some leaked renderings suggest that the screen size of the first two iPhones may slightly increase to 6.2 inches.

In early 2023, Mark Gurman of Bloomberg predicted that the top-of-the-line iPhone 15 Pro Max might debut under the name iPhone 15 Ultra for the first time. But later he stepped back and said that besides the Pro Max version, Apple may release an even higher-end Ultra version in 2024 (not in 2023).

The appearance of the iPhone 15 series should be similar to the previous generation products. However, the standard version will abandon the previous notch screen and adopt the dynamic island design. The Pro series still supports ProMotion (120Hz refresh rate).

iPhone 15 Plus rendering

It is said that all Lightning ports of the iPhone 15 series will be changed to USB-C ports, but Apple may reserve faster data transfer speeds for the Pro models. And the difference may be significant, as the regular iPhone may be limited to the USB 2.0 standard, while the Pro version will adopt the USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3 standard.

In addition, the USB-C accessories supported by the iPhone 15 series are likely to be limited to those certified by Apple’s Made for iPhone (MFi) program. Uncertified third-party accessories may be restricted in functionality.

iPhone 15 series new color leak

As for colors, leaks suggest that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus may add deep pink and light blue. The iPhone 15 Pro may add deep red, and the Pro Max may add titanium gray. It is said that the Pro models will also have thinner bezels and titanium metal sides to differentiate from the regular models. The power and volume buttons on these two models may also be slightly lower.

The all-new iPhone 15 series may be equipped with new and improved cameras, allowing users to capture better images in both day and night.

Among them, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus may feature the 48-megapixel (f/1.78, 24mm) main camera of the iPhone 14 Pro series, while the ultra-wide-angle camera remains unchanged, with just some adjustments.

The iPhone 15 Pro is expected to be equipped with the familiar triple camera setup, including a 48-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 12-megapixel lens with up to 3x optical zoom.

However, the iPhone 15 Pro Max may come with a new periscope zoom lens, which can further magnify without losing clarity. Although the company has not confirmed this, Apple is expected to increase the zoom range to 5x. Popular Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo even believes that the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be equipped with a 6x periscope telephoto lens.

The CAD rendering of the iPhone 15 series shows that the new device has a thicker camera module, especially the Pro models, indicating the use of larger sensors. The front camera and Face ID sensors are expected to remain unchanged, at least for the iPhone 15 series. There have been reports that the iPhone 15 series will be equipped with under-display Face ID, but this is unlikely to happen in the next few years.

Last year, Apple upgraded the iPhone 14 Pro series with the latest A16 Bionic chip based on TSMC’s 4nm architecture. In comparison, the regular models are equipped with an enhanced version of the A15 Bionic chip. This strategy helps Apple achieve multiple purposes. First, it allows Apple to reduce the manufacturing cost of the regular iPhone models. Second, it establishes a clear distinction between the regular iPhone and the Pro iPhone. Apple has no sufficient reason not to follow this strategy this year.

iPhone 14 Pro series

The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are expected to run on the A16 Bionic chip with 6GB of RAM, albeit a faster LPDDR5. This is still a very powerful combination. The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max are expected to be equipped with the more powerful A17 Bionic chip based on TSMC’s 3nm manufacturing technology. TSMC predicts that the energy efficiency of the new processor will improve by 35%, which means longer battery life. It is speculated that all models of the iPhone 15 series will be equipped with larger batteries.

In addition, Apple may also increase the RAM of the Pro models to 8GB. The iPhone 15 series will also come pre-installed with iOS 17, featuring many new features.

Analyst Jeff Pu believes that the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max will be more expensive than the iPhone 14 Pro series.

For reference, Apple released the iPhone 14 Pro in 2022, with a starting price of $999 for the 128GB version (the domestic version sold for 7999 yuan). However, the starting price of the iPhone 15 Pro may be $1099, and the starting price of the iPhone 15 Pro Max may be $1199.

iPhone 14 Pro series pricing

The price increase may be due to high-end components such as new chips, periscope camera sensors, larger batteries, titanium chassis, etc. However, Apple has not yet confirmed any of these details.

Finally, let’s talk about the expected release date of the iPhone 15. In the past decade, Apple has always released new iPhone models in September, so there is no reason to believe that it will not release the iPhone 15 series at the same time this year. Therefore, the iPhone 15 series should also be released in early or mid-September this year.

Additionally, it may be a coincidence, but Apple has always launched new iPhone models on Tuesdays, including the iPhone X, iPhone 11, iPhone 12, and iPhone 13 series. After the official release of the iPhone 15 series, it should be available for sale in about ten days.
