The next-gen iPhone will repotedly be loaded with some new technologies from the comany and we hope the rumors are true.
The fact that all the iPhone 5 series will potentially sport USB-C port and also have the Dynamic Island feature means that Apple i finally leaving its noch design behind and that will be the official death of the notch after so many years.
But even at that, there have been other rumors and suggestions by numerous people on the internet who think that Apple should do it their own ways.
One thing fr sure is the fact that the device will look quit identical t the current generation iPhone 14 series except for the inclusion f the dynamic island which is basically a pill-shaped camera cut-out at the center-top of the device’s screen.

Ther is even a rumor that Apple might be working on an iPhone Ulltra which would looklike the Apple Watch Ultra. However, nothing much has been said about such device lately so we’ll just keep that at bay.
Although it might be too early to talk about potential specifications and rumored features that will debut on the iPhone 15 series, we’ll till adamantly talk about it anyway so for the curious Apple fans let’s talk about the rumored specs, release date, and rumored pricing of th next-gen iPhone 15 series.
iPhone 15 Release date
The TL;DR of his section is September…hopefully everything go as plannned and there is no issue with supply and manufacturing.
I said that in particular because of the current state of production sufferening vaious supply issues, there could be a little delay in the release. Little because it shouldn’t be a delay that would take weeks, let alone months.
Take the current iPhone 14 tries as an example, the devie came a week earlier than anticipated so the same may or may not apply to the nextgen iPhone 15 series.
Even though there is no official date of the release, the month of the realse should be September. However, more information about this will be released in the near future and we’ll be able to get more understanding on when the devices will debut.
iPhone 15 likely cost
If you remember, this year, Apple dropped the tiny iPhone Mini for an iPhone Plus which s basically going on a different direction relative to the Mini, this also had some effect on the price of the device as well.
So one thing that we may see this year is a continuation in that regard. But the device ill most likely start with a base price tag of about US$699 while the high-end pro models will probably start at US$1,099.
Although that pricing isn’t going to be global because f we are to compare the sales o the iPhone acros the globe, different region had different pricing. For example, the iPhone 14 costs about US$75 more than the previous model while the prise stayed the same in the United States.
Another thing well likely see s a widened price gap between the base iPhone 15 model and the high-end Pro mdels that could potentially reach an excess of US$300 or more.
iPhone 15 Dynamic Island or Notch
As mentioned earlier, there are rumors that all the iPhone 15 series will have the same dynamic island design unlike the previous iPhone 14 series whereby only the “Pro” models had the dynamic island while the base models retained the iPhone 13’s small notch.
The positive reception of the dymaic island is probably why Apple will want to captilize on the design once and for all, and retain it across the iPhone 15 series.
Many popular tech insiders also have a similar sentiment.
5 Models or Three?
Apple swapped the iPhone 14 Mini for the iPhone 14 Plus because the Minni was reportedly making little sales. However, most of the people preferred the iPhone 14 Pros too because of the Dynamic Island hch was the device’s main selling point.
The result was another poor-performing iPhone 14 Plus in terms of sales. Although there isn’t any rumor that Apple could outright ditch the “Plus” just like it ditched the “Mini” this time around, which means that w can expect about four different iPhone 15 eries this year with each having their unique selling points.
So we can something like this: iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. And if an iPhone SE 4 arrives in the interim period, prior to the next flagship series’ arrival, that doesn’t count as a true ’15’ model anyway.
As mentioned eearilier, Aple is reportedly working on an iPhone Ultra which will be like the apex iPhone 15 series. But some suggested it could merely be a rebadge iPhone 15 Pro Max.
eSIM Across the Globe?
Sme leakers suggested that the iPhone 15 series will entirely eradicate the SIM card tray for good and revert completely to eSIM. But whether this will be implemented on their devices globally or it will just be in a select number off counties is yet to be verified.
I suggest this could very well be the case across the globe for the iPhone 15 series, as Apple announced at its Far Out event on 7 September that it’s already rolling out this model for the iPhone 14 series in the USA.
Even tough it may appear that Apple is the trendsetter in this regard, it’s just a matter of time before other OEMs adopt the technology and make eSIM their primary SIM card technology on their smartphones.
Not just Apple but even almost all smartphones for many years no never exceeded the 6.9-inch display mark. Huawei did i in 2018 with the Mate 20X but dropped back. The Galaxy S series from the S22 Ultra till date have retained the 6.8-inch dslay size similar to Apple retaining the 6.7-inch as its peak display size.
There is currently no evidence that the company will increase or decrease the screen sizes of its devices so the 6.1-inch and the 6.7-inch seems to be the new norm.
In terms of the technology in the display, the Pro models are still expected to lead the charge with Always-On Display and ProMotion, which isn’t expected on the base models.
Chipset and Storage
As expected,the devices will get the upgraded A17 Bionic chipset which rmord to already being developed with a 3nm fabrication process.
The iOS doesn’t require too much RAM like Adroid so 6GB f RAM as the standard will not be too much of an ask and the storage will likely range between 128GB and 1TB.
Apple finally upgraded its high-end iPhone 14 Pro’s primary cameras last year from 12MP to 48MP. The same sensor’s capacity may continue on the new iPhone 15 Pr models as well according to rummors.
However, the post-processing capacity and computational ability of the camera will certiny be tweaked to feature some improvements that will make it potentially better than the previous model.
We’ll also see things like improved portraits, lighting, high dynamic range, and low-light and night photography, among other improvements.
Th number of camera sensors doesn’t define the quality of the output. That is the fact. And Apple will definitely want to slowly continue with the refinements of its camera sensors and their output capacities rather than just switching the sensors to include bigger nubmbes every year like most Chinese smartphone makers.
