As we approach the anticipated release of the iPhone 15 in September 2023, rumors and leaks about the latest batch of iPhones have begun circulating. We’ve put together everything you should expect from the new phone.

One of the biggest rumors surrounding the iPhone 15 is the possibility that Apple will finally embrace USB-C charging and say goodbye to the Lightning port. This change has been a long time coming, as many other smartphones have already made the switch to USB-C.

In addition to the switch to USB-C, it is also rumored that there will be a new model of the iPhone 15, dubbed the iPhone 15 Ultra, which could take the iPhone Pro series to the next level with a super durable titanium design.

Another rumor about the iPhone 15 is the possibility of a divide between the regular and Pro models, with only the iPhone 15 Pro series being equipped with a new periscope zoom lens. This would be a significant difference between the two models and could make the Pro series even more appealing to professional photographers and videographers.

In terms of price, it is possible that the iPhone 15 could see a price increase of $100 to $200 for the iPhone 15 Ultra model. This is based on leaks from industry insiders, but it is worth noting that these prices are not confirmed by Apple and should be taken with a grain of salt. On the other hand, there is also the possibility that Apple could lower the costs of the iPhone 15 in response to soft sales of the iPhone 14 Plus. This could be a way for Apple to make its lower-cost iPhones more attractive to value-conscious shoppers.

As far as the models themselves go, it is expected that the iPhone 15 will continue with the iPhone 14 Plus lineup of the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max, all with varying screen sizes. This follows the pattern of previous years, with the smaller iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus offering a more affordable option while the Pro models provide more advanced features for professionals.

Another rumor about the iPhone 15 is the possibility that it could be equipped with a 3-nanometer chipset, which would give the A17 Bionic silicon in the iPhone 15 Pro a significant advantage over other chipmakers. This advanced chipset could also potentially lead to a boost in battery life for the iPhone 15 Pro models.

In terms of design, there have been rumors that the iPhone 15 could have a more boxy design similar to the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5, as well as a notch-less display and an under-display fingerprint sensor. These design changes would be a departure from the more recent iPhone models and could be a way for Apple to differentiate the iPhone 15 from its predecessors.

The camera system on the iPhone 15 is also expected to receive an upgrade, with rumors of a quad-lens setup on the regular iPhone 15 and a penta-lens setup on the Pro models. This would be a significant improvement over the current camera systems on the iPhone 14 and could make the iPhone 15 even more appealing to photographers and videographers.

While nothing has been confirmed by Apple, these rumors give us an idea of what to expect from the highly anticipated smartphone release. It is worth noting that these rumors should be taken with a grain of salt, as Apple has not officially announced any of the features or changes for the iPhone 15.
