The internet is humming with information about the new iPhone 15 series as we anticipate another year. In September, Apple often unveils a new iPhone, and the same is anticipated for this year as well. Even though the iPhone 15 release date is still almost nine months away, there have already been numerous leaks and rumours about the next lineup. According to the most recent rumours, the iPhone 15 will feature a USB-C port, an entirely new design, and a number of other intriguing features. If you want to upgrade to an iPhone 15 this year, we've gathered the most recent speculations about its features, variations, design, and anticipated pricing. So let's get started straight now without wasting any time!
Introducing the iPhone 15 Series: What We Know So Far (2023)
Apple has officially announced that it would eventually integrate a USB-C charging connector in iPhones, therefore 2023 is expected to be a significant year for iPhones. See what other significant changes the iPhone series will undergo in 2023.
iPhone 15: Variants
Mark Gurman of Bloomberg and well-known Apple experts Ming-Chi Kuo have both verified that Apple won't really change the number of iPhones in its forthcoming lineup. The business will continue to release four distinct iPhone models in 2023, each with a different screen size, just like it did in 2018.
However, Gurman made a suggestion in his newsletter Power On that Apple might change the top-tier iPhone 15's from Pro Max to Ultra in accordance with the most recent naming scheme for the Apple Watch series. The popularity of the Apple Watch Ultra can be credited with this change. If that's the case, the following iPhone models might launch this year:
- iPhone 15 (6.1-inch display)
- iPhone 15 Plus (6.7-inch display)
- iPhone 15 Pro (6.1-inch display)
- iPhone 15 Ultra (6.7-inch display)

Launch Date for iPhone 15 Series
It is hardly surprising that Apple releases new iPhones in a pattern. The 'fall event' when Apple announced the new iPhones is typically set for September; the only exception is the iPhone 12 series, which will ship in October owing to the pandemic. The iPhone 15 will probably go on sale in the second week of September 2023 if history is any guide. The release date hasn't yet been leaked, but we'll update this story if we find out anything.
IPhone 15 Design Updates
Island Dynamic on All iPhones
If you were hoping for the iPhone 14 series to feature a major redesign, you're going to be disappointed because Apple is probably going to stick with the same form factor and design. One significant change that might occur this year is the expansion of the new Dynamic Island, which takes the form of a pill, to all iPhone 15 models. this year, all four iPhone models will support Dynamic Island, Apple's innovative take on the iPhone notch.
It is almost certain that TouchID won't be coming back to iPhones any time soon, and it will be a while before Apple adds a fingerprint sensor to iPhones once more.
There are currently no reports suggesting that Apple may upgrade the non-Pro iPhone models to 120Hz displays, thus it would be a significant letdown if the basic iPhone 15 models continued to have 60Hz displays. The least Apple can do is increase the refresh rate of the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus to 90Hz, while Android competitors are making displays with a 120Hz refresh rate a standard, even on phones priced as little as $250. However, in the end, our fantasies won't seem to come true.
a titanium frame
A titanium frame for Pro models is another anticipated design upgrade for the iPhone 15 series. The iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max (or iPhone 15 Ultra) models' stainless steel frames will be replaced by titanium ones, according to tech analysts Jeff Pu and Ming-Chi Kuo. This will assist the business in lightening the weight of its expensive iPhone models.
iPhone without buttons?
There are rumours that the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max will incorporate solid state power and volume buttons, similar to the iPhone 8's home button, as Apple works to increase the gap between the normal and Pro iPhone models. Two more Taptic engines will reportedly be added by Apple to accommodate the haptic input from these solid state buttons.
For those who are speculating, why may Apple wish to replace the mechanical buttons with haptic ones? Because there would be fewer mechanical components with solid state buttons, overall durability would increase. The iPhone 15 Pro versions will feature better dust and water resistance.
Edges with Curves are Back!
With the launching of the iPhone 12 series back in 2020, Apple introduced flatter corners, and the design has mostly remained the same with the iPhone 14 series from the previous year. However, a report from November of last year claimed that the iPhone 15 series would bring back rounded corners. And most lately, there has been even more publicity on the Apple iPhone 15's curved edges.
According to a tweet from ShrimpApplePro, Apple may release an iPhone 15 series with rounded edges comparable to the iPhone 5c. They did, however, advise the anticipators to proceed with "caution" on the design rumour. However, the leaker now provided an update, noting that the new iPhone series would feature a novel design with curved edges rather than flat ones
USB Type-C Charging Port
The USB-C port, rather than its exclusive lightning charging port, is one of the required changes Apple must make to the iPhone 15 this year. Although there won't be a significant cosmetic change, this will be one of the iPhones' standout features this year.
Apple has formally announced that it will add USB-C support to iPhones, but it did not specify when this transition will take place. The iPhone 15 series, however, is widely anticipated to be the first iPhone models to feature a USB-C connection. However, rumours have noted that in addition to the new iPhones, Apple will also release new USB-C accessories, such as USB-C Airpods.

Apple iPhone 15: Price (Expected)
The price of the iPhone 15 series is now the most fascinating aspect! Apple is anticipated to raise the costs of the iPhone 15 Pro models in order to provide a clear separation between the vanilla and Pro lineups, according to leaker LeaksApplePro (via HowToiSolve and a recent Weibo post).
With the launch of the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro series last year, Apple maintained the same pricing across the board. However, due to the poor demand for the iPhone 15 Plus and the current state of the world economy, Apple may decide to increase the price of the 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max (or Ultra). This suggests that the price difference between the regular and Pro variants could reach $300.
The estimated cost of the Apple iPhone 15 in India is 77,900 ($969). The rumoured release date for the Apple iPhone 15 is March 15, 2023. There will be several colour options for the mobile.
The price range for the iPhone 15 series when it is released in the USA is as follows:
- iPhone 15 – $799
- iPhone 15 Plus – $899
- iPhone 15 Pro – $1,099
- iPhone 15 Ultra – $1,199
