The iPhone 15 should launch later today, as the new phones take center stage at Apple’s September product event. While Apple hasn’t confirmed what’s on the agenda for this product launch, it’s a pretty safe bet that new iPhones will make an appearance.
With the latest iPhones just hours away from their launch, it’s no surprise that we’ve heard just about every iPhone 15 rumor imaginable — including last-minute leaks that have filled in the last remaining gaps about what to expect.
Our iPhone 15 vs. iPhone 15 Pro vs. iPhone 15 Plus comparison goes into greater detail about the different models, and if you’re specifically interested in the iPhone 15 Pro, check out our iPhone 15 vs. iPhone 15 Pro face-off to see how the Pro models might stand out. But below you’ll find a rundown of iPhone 15 specs, summarizing what we’ve heard about each of the four models set to debut in September.
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are expected to cost the same as their predecessors. That means a starting price of $799 for the iPhone 15 while the iPhone 15 Plus will cost $899. Those base models should come with 128GB of storage.
It’s widely expected a price hike will be unavoidable for the iPhone 15 Pro models, with estimates ranging between $100 and $200. A last-minute price rumor suggests the iPhone 15 Pro will cost the same as the iPhone Pro with a starting price of $999. The iPhone 15 Pro Max, on the other hand, is expected to go up by $100 to $1,199.
If you’re looking for a silver lining, it’s also expected that Apple will offer more storage in the base models of the Pro phones, with either model offering 256GB at their starting prices. Then again, contrasting rumors claim the iPhone 15 Pro models will still start with 128GB of storage.
Expect a couple of changes to happen across the board for the iPhone 15. After using straight-edged frames for the last few years, Apple is turning back to curved edges for the sides of the iPhone 15 models while the displays themselves will remain flat and not curved.
In a more significant change, each of the four new models is likely to sport a USB-C port, replacing the Lightning connectivity that Apple’s used for years with its mobile devices. That has potential implications for charging speed, as we’ll discuss below in the battery section.
The changes won’t stop there with the iPhone 15 Pro design. A popular rumor has Apple turning to titanium for the Pro model frames instead of stainless steel. The new material figures to be lighter and more durable than before, with the iPhone 15 Pro models shedding more than half an ounce off the weight of their predecessors.
