At a Glance: The 2023 iPhone 15 models are expected to feature USB-C instead of Lightning, faster modem chips, upgraded camera technology, and more

The 2023 iPhone 15

Apple in September 2022 released the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models, but we’ve been hearing rumors about the iPhone 15 since well before the latest iPhones became available for purchase. Now that launch is approaching, rumors are picking up and we know a good deal about what to expect this year.

Apple is planning to release a total of four iPhone 15 models in the same sizes as the iPhone 14 models, including two 6.1-inch iPhones and two 6.7-inch iPhones. One of the 6.1-inch iPhones will be the standard iPhone 15, while one of the 6.7-inch models will be an iPhone 15 “Plus.” The other 6.1 and 6.7-inch iPhones will be higher-end and more expensive “Pro” models, and they could be even pricier this year. As with the iPhone 14/14 Pro lineup, the best features will be reserved for the iPhone 15 Pro models to make the extra cost worth it.

Rumors so far suggest we can expect a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port on all of the iPhone 15 models, and the Dynamic Island is going to be available for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus in addition to the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max. That means Apple will be doing away with the notch that it has used since the iPhone X for the flagship iPhone lineup for a sleeker, less intrusive design.

Apple plans to use Qualcomm modem chips for the new devices as its modem chips that are in development aren’t quite ready, We are expecting new UWB chips for integration with the Vision Pro headset. The standard iPhone 15 models will get an upgrade to the A16 chip that was in the iPhone 14 Pro models, while the iPhone 15 Pro models will use faster and more efficient 3-nanometer A17 chips. Pro models are also expected to see an upgrade to titanium frames, slimmer bezels, and some minor design changes with more curved device edges, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max is also expected to get periscope lens technology for enhanced zoom capabilities.

Pricing on the iPhone 15 models is expected to remain the same, with the standard entry-level 6.1-inch device starting at 65,884.34 and the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus starting at 74,192.22


The iPhone 15 Models are expected to be similar to the iPhone 14 models, but the pill-and-hole cutout will expand to the entire lineup. That means all iPhone 15 models will have no notch, instead adopting the Dynamic Island introduced in the iPhone 14 Pro models.

For the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, design differences will include the USB-C port instead of a Lightning port and the transition from the notch to the Dynamic Island. We got our first look at the USB-C port in a leaked image said to be of an iPhone 15 Pro.

Along with the Dynamic Island, all iPhone 15 models could be equipped with a more power-efficient OLED Display Driver Chip that’s manufactured on a 28nm process, allowing for reduced power consumption that could ultimately lead to improved battery life across the board. The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro Dynamic Island is expected to feature an updated design with an integrated proximity sensor. but this change will not result in notable changes to the look or functionality of the Dynamic Island. It will change component costs and could be a move that Apple is making to lower device costs somewhat.

Color Options

The iPhone 15 models could be available in dark pink and light blue color options. Apple often offers the standard iPhone models in a range of bright colors, and this year is no exception.

The bright pink and blue shades are likely to be available alongside the standard black, white, and PRODUCT(RED) color options that have been made available in prior years.

According to leaker Unknownz21, Apple has used several different colors for iPhone 15 prototypes. Colors that Apple considered include pink (or a rose gold/blush gold shade), green, blue, yellow, orange, and black.

iPhone 15 Pro Exclusive Design

While all iPhone 15 models are going to adopt the USB-C port, there are some design changes that are exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max.

Rumors suggest the iPhone 15 Pro models will feature thinner, more curved bezels than the iPhone 14 Pro models, which can be seen in renders of the device created based on circulating details. These deeper curves will be limited to the iPhone 15 Pro models, and the iPhone 15 models will continue to look like the iPhone 14 models with flatter edges, an aluminum frame, and a glass front and back. We are not expecting the same slimmer bezels for the standard iPhone 15 models.

Case Fit

A set of 3D printed iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models offers some insight into how prior generation iPhone 14 will fit and it appears that older cases will not be able to be used with the new iPhones.

Small changes in the dimensions of the iPhone 15 lineup will prevent the cases from fitting for the most part, though the iPhone 15 Plus is able to fit inside an iPhone 14 Plus. The larger rear camera housing of the Pro models prevents iPhone 14 Pro cases from working properly, as does the more curved design and changes to the buttons.

Major updates include the transition to USB-C and the addition of the Dynamic Island instead of the notch that’s on the iPhone 14. Other design changes like a deeper curve at the edges and a titanium frame will be limited to iPhone 15 Pro models. Leaked renders have, however, suggested that there could be a very slight change to the display size.

Renders of the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus suggest that it will feature some minor design updates compared to the iPhone 14 Plus, including the Dynamic Island and slight tweaks to the size and thickness of the device.

It will feature a Dynamic Island instead of a notch, along with a USB-C port. The camera bump is expected to be thicker, and it could feature slightly rounded edges with a more curved design that allows for a smoother transition from front to back.

No Touch ID

Though there have been ongoing rumors suggesting Apple has considered bringing Touch ID back to its flagship iPhones using an under-display solution, the iPhone 15 models are not expected to include Touch ID and will continue to use Face ID.Apple is working on an under-display Face ID feature but it won’t be ready until at least 2025. Instead, in 2023, the iPhone 15 will continue to use the Dynamic Island, which Apple is expected to expand to all models instead of just the Pro models.


Apple is swapping the Lightning port on the iPhone 15 devices for a USB-C port, which will allow it to comply with new regulations implemented in Europe. These regulations require Apple to produce iPhones with USB-C ports in Europe, so Apple either needs to make a worldwide design swap or develop special iPhones for sale in Europe.

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

Charging Speeds

At least some of the iPhone 15 models could support charging speeds up to 35W,  which would allow for quicker charging with an appropriate power adapter. It is not clear if this is a feature that will be available for all of the iPhone 15 models or just the iPhone 15 Pro models.

USB-C Limitations

iPhone 15 models will only officially support USB-C accessories certified by the Apple Made for iPhone (MFi) program. Apple supplier Foxconn is allegedly producing accessories like Ear Pods and cables with USB-C connectors that are MFi certified.

Color-Matched USB-C Cables

The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus may ship with a color-matched braided USB-C to USB-C cable rather than a plain white cable. Apple currently sells the iPhone with a white USB-C to Lightning cable, but it has used braided color cables for devices like the iMac. Rumors suggest that each cable would be available in a color that would match the shade of the iPhone 15 model.

Camera Updates

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will adopt a 48-megapixel camera, a technology Apple introduced in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

A new stacked sensor design will allow the lens to capture more light for an improvement in low-light camera performance and also upcoming standard iPhone 15 models will use the 48-megapixel lens.

A second rumor says the iPhone 15 will include a glass plastic hybrid lens with an f/1.7 aperture. The lens will reportedly feature a single glass element and six plastic elements, and while the f/1.7 aperture would be an improvement over the f/1.79 aperture used in the iPhone 14 Pro models, it would be a slight downgrade compared to the f/1.5 aperture featured in the iPhone 14 Plus, but an increase in megapixels if the 48-megapixel camera rumor is correct.

Apple is expected to adopt Sony’s latest “state-of-the-art image sensors for some of the iPhone 15 models. Compared to standard sensors, Sony’s image sensor doubles the saturation signal in each pixel, allowing it to capture more light to cut down on underexposure and overexposure. The sensor will allow for improvements in portraits and other images even when strong backlighting is an issue.

Periscope Lens Technology for iPhone 15 Pro Max

You’ve probably heard rumors about Apple’s plan to adopt a periscope zoom lens for the iPhone 15, but it will be limited to the larger size iPhone 15 Pro Max.

The iPhone 15 Pro will get a standard zoom lens, and the iPhone 15 models will be limited to the Wide and Ultra Wide lenses. Periscope lens technology offers optical zoom capabilities that exceed those possible with a standard telephoto lens, allowing for 5x or even 10x optical zoom. With a periscope lens, the iPhone’s zoom capabilities would be significantly enhanced as the current Pro models are limited to 3x zoom.

With a periscope lens, light is reflected by an angled mirror toward the image sensor in the camera. The directional shift allows for a “folded” telephoto lens system for improved optical zoom capabilities without the blurriness that comes with digital zoom.

iPhone 15 processor and specs

When it comes to processors, we expect the regular iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models to run on the Apple A16 Bionic chip, the same as in the 14 Pro series, while the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will get the next generation Apple A17 Bionic processor, built on brand new and far more efficient 3nm technology.

This would mean that the Pro and Pro Max models will be much faster. The new A17 chip is rumored to come with a six-core CPU (same as previously), but it is also expected to have a six-core GPU, an upgrade compared to the five-core one in the A16 chip. 

SIM Card Tray

Apple with the launch of the iPhone 14 models removed the SIM card tray in devices sold in the United States. With the launch of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models, the SIM tray could be removed in additional countries.


The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are expected to feature 6GB RAM, which is the same amount of RAM that is in the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus.

Release Date

The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro are expected to be unveiled at a September event, which is expected to be held on Tuesday, September 12. With that timing, pre-orders would take place on Friday, September 15, with a launch to follow on Friday, September 22.


As the curtain rises on the tech world’s grand stage, the iPhone 15 takes its place as the star of the show. With a symphony of rumors and leaks, the anticipation has reached a crescendo, promising a device that could redefine the very essence of a smartphone.

From the echoes of the past in its design to the futuristic A14X chip that lies at its heart, the iPhone 15 tantalizes us with glimpses of what’s to come. The ProMotion XE display, the potential blend of Touch ID and Face ID, and the whispered promises of improved 5G capabilities all weave a narrative of innovation and evolution.

In the ever-evolving landscape of technology, the iPhone 15 emerges as a beacon of anticipation. With tantalizing rumors about its design, performance, camera, and software, Apple enthusiasts eagerly await its 2023 unveiling. While the rumors spark excitement, the true magic will be revealed on launch day. Stay tuned for the latest updates on this transformative device.
