After months of speculation, Apple has finally confirmed that the highly anticipated September Apple Event will take place on Thursday, September 9, 2023. During this event, Apple is expected to not only present some other technological highlights such as the WatchOS 10 , but also the long-awaited iPhone 15 series will reveal.

With so many rumors circulating about the new iPhones, it's understandable to wonder what exactly you can expect from these new devices. To provide further clarity, we've put together this page with a summary of the most reliable rumors, supplemented with insights from our team of product experts, who have been reviewing iPhones for many years.

Let's cover the basics. We're expecting a launch of four different models: the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and the iPhone 15 Ultra (which will reportedly replace the Pro Max model). Leading analyst Ross Young suggests that all four models will feature a Dynamic Island cutout, as reported by MacRumors . Furthermore, Apple's marketing boss, Greg Joswiak, has indicated that the next iPhone will make the switch from a Lightning to a USB-C connection, which would be in line with new EU regulations that come into effect from 2024.

The most important changes at a glance:

  • Two iPhone 15 models and two iPhone 15 Pro models.
  • The Pro Max is renamed Ultra.
  • Dynamic islands on all models.
  • Charging via USB-C instead of Lightning.
  • Big camera bump.
  • Predicted prices of €1019 / €1169 / €1329 / €1579.
  • Apple event: September 12, 2023

What date will the iPhone 15 be released?

Apple has not yet officially unveiled the iPhone 15 series. The only concrete detail we have so far is that a virtual event is planned for September 12th.

This announcement fits well with Apple's usual cycle for new iPhone launches, which historically takes place in September. Recently, however, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman indicated that "the evidence is growing" for September 12, though he emphasized that things could still change. He added that while it will be an in-person event, Tim Cook and company will not make the announcement live, but via a pre-recorded video, similar to the approach taken at the iPhone 14 launch last year. During the event, attendees will likely have the opportunity to experience the devices for themselves.

On Tuesday, September 12, 2023, Apple will unveil the iPhone 15 during the Wonderlust event. The official release date of the iPhone 15 usually follows a week later, on September 22, 2023 .

What will the iPhone 15 cost?

According to Bloomberg 's Mark Gurman, Apple may increase the price of the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max. But the question is of course how expensive all the models will be? Based on rumors and past prices, we have estimated the new iPhone prices:

  • iPhone 15: From €1019
  • iPhone 15 Plus: From €1169
  • iPhone 15 Pro: From €1329
  • iPhone 15 Pro Max / Ultra: From €1579

What will the iPhone 15 look like?

The iPhone 15 models are expected to be very similar in appearance to the iPhone 14 models. However, one notable change is that the pills and holes cut will be extended to the entire lineup. This means that all iPhone 15 models will not have a traditional notch, but will instead use the Dynamic Island design, which was first introduced in the iPhone 14 Pro models.

With few major design changes expected, Apple will reportedly offer four different models in the form of the iPhone 15 range. This includes the standard 6.1-inch iPhone 15, the 6.1-inch iPhone 15 Pro, the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus and the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Pro Max. It seems that the "pro" models will be distinguished by more advanced features and a higher price, while the regular iPhone 15 models are expected to be more affordable.

The design variations between the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus include switching from a Lightning port to a USB-C port and changing the notch to the Dynamic Island design. The move to a USB-C port is a new development for all iPhone models, while the Dynamic Island design was first introduced on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

In addition to the Dynamic Island design, some sources consider that all iPhone 15 models could be equipped with a more economical OLED display driver chip, produced with a 28 nm process. This can result in lower energy consumption, potentially leading to improved battery life for all models.

However, it appears that the standard iPhone 15 models will not have access to ProMotion technology or an always-on display, even with the switch to the Dynamic Island design. Apple seems to want to keep these functions for the Pro variants for the time being.

To colour

According to current rumors, the iPhone 15 models will be available in blue, a coral shade that is a cross between pink and orange, white, black and green/yellow. Blue and coral are the new colors for this year, while yellow/green, black and white return as standard colors in the range.

iPhone 15 USB-C

Apple is swapping the Lightning port on the iPhone 15 for a USB-C port, allowing it to comply with new regulations implemented in Europe. These regulations require Apple to produce iPhones with USB-C ports in Europe, so Apple must either switch the design globally or develop special iPhones for sale in Europe.

With this move, the Mac, iPhone and iPad will all charge via USB-C, allowing Apple customers to charge their devices with one charging standard.


With the end of this blog post in sight, we've gotten a glimpse of what the future holds for the highly anticipated iPhone 15. While Apple is still keeping the details under wraps and fans are eagerly waiting, the rumors and speculation continue to excite us.

From the expected release date to the design changes and feature updates, the iPhone 15 promises to be another high-profile chapter in the evolution of Apple's groundbreaking smartphones. We can't wait to see how these devices will differentiate themselves from their predecessors and how they will further improve our digital lives.

Stay tuned because as soon as Apple makes official announcements, we'll be here to bring you all the details. Until then, you can look forward to the next big chapter in the world of technology and innovation.
