iPhone 15 to launch on September 12
Apple has confirmed its ‘Wonderlust’ event on September 12, during which it will unveil its latest iPhone and Apple Watch models. The event is set to commence at 10:30 PM IST. While there will be an in-person event with select media in attendance, Apple will also live-stream the event on YouTube and various other platforms.
iPhone 15 rumors: Models and colors
In 2022, Apple bid farewell to the iPhone Mini model, introducing the iPhone 14 Plus as its replacement. This streamlined the choice, offering consumers a 6.1- or 6.7-inch screen, whether opting for a Pro or non-Pro variant. As we approach the upcoming release, the return of the iPhone 15 mini appears unlikely.
Instead, it’s probable that we’ll witness the launch of four models: the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. In a surprising twist, rumors have resurfaced about Apple potentially renaming the iPhone 15 Pro Max to the iPhone 15 Ultra. This change would align with Apple’s recent naming conventions, such as the Apple Watch Ultra and Apple M2 Ultra chipset, better representing the specifications disparity between the iPhone 15 Pro and the Pro Max/Ultra, as we’ll delve into further below.
iPhone 15 Design Insights:
While the iPhone 11 Pro Max was the last to feature a curved-edge display, leaks suggest that the iPhone 15 could reintroduce a curved design, albeit with a flat display. Dummy units of likely iPhone 15 models reveal rounded edges matching current iPhones.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman indicates that all iPhone 15 models will incorporate the Dynamic Island, potentially spurring app developers to create features that adapt to the evolving camera cutout/display.
Notably, the iPhone 15’s camera bump may sport a new design, with the iPhone 15 Pro showcasing a significant lens size increase. On the contrary, the iPhone 15 Pro Max may feature a more modest lens increase, potentially indicating the presence of a new periscope zoom lens.
iPhone 15 Pro Rumors: Titanium Frame, Dust, and Colors
Speculations indicate that the dust within the disintegrating Apple logo may originate from the titanium frame of the upcoming Pro models. Furthermore, the titanium frame will make the iPhone 15 Pro series stand out. These models are expected to introduce new color options, such as silver, black, and blue.
