iPhone 15 release date rumors – huge design change ‘leaked’ online

As sure as night follows day, Apple will release another iPhone.

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro are now behind us, which means we’re looking to the iPhone 15.

What is the iPhone 15?

Apple launched four new iPhones in September 2022, so we won’t see a new model anytime soon.

But it is almost certain that Apple will unveil the iPhone 15 in 2023.

We could see a brand new design, camera improvements, faster processing and more.

The quality of iPhone 15 leaks won’t be particularly good until a few months before launch.

So until then, you’ll just have to write a wish list of new features you’d like to see – and maybe send it to Apple headquarters.

iPhone 15 release date predictions – when is it out?

Predicting iPhone 15 features at this point is difficult, but guessing the release date is much easier.

Apple tends to stick to the same rough release schedule every year.

The big launch event always takes place in September and usually falls at the start of the month – on a Tuesday or Wednesday, usually.

For 2023, the most likely iPhone 15 reveal dates would be either Tuesday, September 12 or Wednesday, September 13.

Wednesday might seem more likely, if only to allow some respite between the launch of the iPhone and 9/11, an important day to commemorate the World Trade Center tragedy of 9/11.

Then we would likely see iPhone 15 pre-orders go live on Friday, September 15.

This would likely be followed by the rollout of the next iOS software update (iOS 17?) on Monday, September 18.

Then, we’d suspect iPhone 15 reviews would drop on Wednesday, September 20.

And finally, the iPhone 15 release date would likely fall on Friday, September 22.

Of course, Apple could shift this whole process a week earlier (as it did for the 2022 release), but the approximate format will almost certainly remain the same.

Unfortunately, it’s impossible to say what Apple’s exact iPhone 15 plans are.

We won’t know until much closer to the date, and the full truth won’t be revealed until the keynote at the Apple event itself.

Until then, take all rumors, leaks, and predictions with a pinch of salt.

iPhone 15 news and features

Some of the iPhone 15 features are pretty easy to guess.

They will almost certainly all support 5G internet, like all new models since the iPhone 12.

And we’ll likely see a new (and faster) A17 chip – although that may be limited to Pro models only.

Apple will also introduce a new core software update, likely called iOS 17.

An early tip from @LeaksApplePro on Twitter suggests we could see the Pro Max model swapped out for an Ultra.

And that would also mean it has a few extra features, aside from just having a bigger screen.

A separate prediction from industry consultant Ross Young complaints that we will see Dynamic Island available on all new iPhone 15 models.

It’s the interactive little cutout for Face ID and the selfie camera that replaces the old notch.

Currently, it’s only available on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, but not the classic iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus.

Other likely improvements include a better camera and potentially more default storage (possibly starting at 256GB).
