The launch of the iPhone 15 series is expected to take place in the third week of September, according to recent reports. While Apple has not yet officially confirmed the exact date or event, Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman suggests that the new iPhone models will be announced a day earlier than previously speculated.
Initially, Apple’s annual iPhone launch event was rumored to happen on September 13, but Gurman’s tweet hints that it might take place on Tuesday, September 12. He believes that “signs are increasingly pointing to September 12.” Pre-orders for the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max are expected to begin on September 22.
Gurman also suggests that Apple’s event will follow a hybrid format with recorded video, similar to last year’s iPhone 14 launch. The iPhone 14 series was unveiled during Apple’s ‘Far Out’ event on September 7, with pre-orders starting on September 9.
It’s important to note that Apple has not officially confirmed the iPhone 15 series, so the reported details should be taken with caution. However, if the rumors are true, the iPhone 15 models are expected to come with several upgrades compared to the iPhone 14 series. One significant change could be the inclusion of a USB Type-C port, which is currently lacking in the iPhone 14 models. Additionally, all the iPhone 15 models, including the regular and Pro variants, may feature the Dynamic Island feature that is currently exclusive to the Pro models.
Furthermore, it is speculated that the iPhone 15 Pro models will be powered by the Apple A17 Bionic SoC, while the regular iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Plus might be equipped with the A16 Bionic chip. The Pro models are rumored to have 6GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of storage in the base model, with the option to go up to 2TB in the top-end variant. The iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to offer a periscope telephoto lens for enhanced zoom capabilities.
It should be noted that after the launch of the iPhone 15, the iPhone 14 will get significantly cheaper. The iPhone 14 currently starts at a price of Rs 79,900, which is likely to drop to Rs 69,900 after the price cut next month.
