The launch of the iPhone 15 series may take place in the third week of September. An exact date or event has yet to be officially confirmed by Apple, but a new tweet from Mark Gurman suggests that this year’s iPhone models will go official a day earlier than previously reported. Apple’s annual iPhone event was earlier expected to take place on Wednesday, September 13. Preorders for the new iPhones are expected to include the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Starts September 22.
Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman tweet The iPhone 15 series launch will mostly take place on Tuesday, September 12. “The signs are increasingly pointing to September 12,” he said. Gurman previously claimed the event would take place on September 12 or September 13. The new iPhone 15 models are expected to go on sale a week later, on September 22.
Gurman further said that Apple’s event will use a hybrid format and record video, just like last year’s iPhone 14 event. The iPhone 14 series was launched on September 7 during Apple’s “Far Out” event. Pre-orders for last year’s iPhone models began on Sept. 9.
Apple has yet to officially confirm the iPhone 15 series. Therefore, it is safe to take the reported details with a grain of salt.
The iPhone 15 series is expected to feature several upgrades over last year’s iPhone 14 models. First, a USB Type-C port is expected to be included. The iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max can all be equipped with the Dynamic Island feature, which is currently exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro models.
Additionally, the iPhone 15 Pro models could run on the Apple A17 Bionic SoC, while the regular iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus could use the A16 Bionic chip. The iPhone 15 Pro models may only come with 6GB of LPDDR5 RAM. Their base model is said to come with 256GB of storage, while the high-end model offers up to 2TB of storage. The iPhone 15 Pro Max may feature a periscope telephoto lens for better zooming.
