So what does iPhone 15 have to offer? 

No one can wait till September to know what the big reveal is. Is it going to be called ‘iPhone’? Or something like iPhone Ultra?

Will the upcoming iPhone 15 feature a USB-C port? Are price increases on the horizon for Apple’s iPhones in 2023? 

We all have to wait until fall to know the answers. Meanwhile, here is some interesting information gathered from reports and expert speculations. Sit tight and read on! 

Leaks & Rumors Doing Rounds: What We Know So Far 

Numerous leaks and rumors have emerged, shedding light on the potential specs and features of the iPhone 15. You should take these leaks with a grain of salt. But they provide an exciting glimpse into what Apple might have in store for its loyal customers.

Upgrades in Specs and Features 

According to tweets by renowned supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is planning significant hardware upgrades for its future iPhones. It aims to improve compatibility with its Vision Pro headset, priced at $3,499. In a series of tweets, Kuo mentioned that Apple is taking an “aggressive” approach toward these upgrades.

The iPhone 15 will likely feature a significant improvement in its rear camera setup. The iPhone 14 offered a dual-sensor camera with a 12MP main sensor. The iPhone 15 is rumored to inherit the impressive 48MP main sensor found in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max—all the more reason to try the new iPhone 15. 

The latest version offers a substantial improvement in camera power compared to its predecessor. The camera enhancements on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are expected to be even greater. Features such as periscope cameras, larger sensors, and a potential telephoto camera with a variable zoom lens are in the works. On the front camera side, the iPhone 15 is likely to retain the 12MP selfie camera found in the iPhone 14.

iPhone 15 Design

Rumors have been circulating regarding the Lightning charging port for years. In 2023, there is a strong possibility that the iPhone 15 will bid farewell to the Lightning Port. This will likely be replaced by the USB-C port. 

According to MacRumours, this could be a result of the European Union’s efforts to establish a standardized charging system. The EU has been advocating for a common charging standard. In 2022, it successfully passed legislation mandating that Apple equip its iPhones with USB-C ports by 2024 if it intends to sell them in the EU.

The big question remains whether Apple will transition all iPhone models to USB-C or only the ones sold within the EU. Apple has already made regional modifications to iPhone models, such as the iPhone 14. The US version features an electronic SIM, while other variants have a physical SIM slot. 

Rumors about the design of the iPhone 15 have piqued interest, compared to the base iPhone 14. One prominent rumor suggests that all four iPhone 15 models will feature slightly curved edges, reminiscent of the iPhone 11. The iPhone 14 has a straight-sided design like the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13. There are also rumors of a new camera bump for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus. It will also feature a textured matte glass rear panel similar to the iPhone 14 Pro. 

Price Speculation 

As for the price of the iPhone 15, we are yet to arrive at an official figure. However, we can make an informed estimate based on rumors and the launch prices of the iPhone 14. Initially, it seemed likely that the iPhone 15 would have a starting price of $799 / £849 / AU$1,339, matching the iPhone 14. But Techradar suggests that iPhone 15 will cost more due to higher production costs for Apple.

If these predictions hold, it would mark the first series-wide price increase for iPhones in the US since 2017. Some global markets experienced price increases with last year’s iPhone 14 lineup. Also, Apple might choose to eliminate the 128GB storage option. This aligns with other companies like Samsung and Oppo with their 2023 flagship models. So the starting price of the iPhone 15 could be at least $899 / £959 / AU$1,579 for the 256GB model.

Performance

When it comes to the core specs of the iPhone 15, there are some details that we can be certain about. The standard iPhone 15 will likely feature the A16 Bionic chip. The trend was set by the iPhone 14, which inherited the A15 Bionic from the iPhone 13 Pro. While the iPhone 14 already delivers impressive performance, the inclusion of the A16 Bionic in the iPhone 15 should make the device even snappier.

The A17 Bionic chip is expected to be exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. This means that the Pro models will likely offer even more power and performance. The iPhone 14 is fast enough for most users. It can meet the demands of activities such as streaming, swiping, snapping, and gaming with ease.

In terms of chipsets, likely, Qualcomm will once again supply the 5G modem for the iPhone 15. We might see Snapdragon X70 replacing the Snapdragon X65 found in the iPhone 14. This will improve the performance in terms of 5G connectivity.

Regarding other specs, there are predictions that the Pro models of the iPhone 15 will feature 8GB of RAM. This would be an upgrade compared to previous models. There might also be a distinction between the Pro and non-Pro models in terms of Wi-Fi support. The Pro models may offer Wi-Fi 6E.

Security & Privacy

Apple has always prioritized security and privacy, and the iPhone 15 is likely to continue this trend. Speculations suggest that the next-generation iPhone may introduce enhanced security features. We also expect features such as improved facial recognition technology, biometric authentication methods, etc. Apple’s dedication to user privacy could result in improved data encryption and protection. This could strengthen the security of user information.

Tom’s Guide points out a chance that certain countries will have eSIM functionality. This means iPhones won’t need a physical SIM card. This could be good news for iPhone 15 buyers in countries like the UK, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Portugal. 

Although the application may differ by region, it’s an exciting development. Some design differences might be exclusive to the Pro models, but on the whole, there will be interesting changes. 

iPhone 15 Release Date Predictions 

As of now, there haven’t been any specific rumors about the release date of the iPhone 15. But don’t worry, that’s pretty normal. These rumors usually surface just about a month before the actual launch event. 

Looking at past patterns, Apple unveiled the iPhone 14 on September 7. Most models were available for sale starting September 16, with the iPhone 14 Plus hitting the market on October 7. 

Apple tends to choose the first or second week of September for their launches. Based on this, it is likely that Apple will launch the iPhone 15 on September 5 or 12. But we can’t rule out September 6 and 13 as options as well.
