iPhone 15 release date prediction: when does the iPhone 15 release?

As said earlier, Apple has a strict release window for iPhones and follows it meticulously every year without fail. The iPhone 14 series was launched around the second week of September.

Apple usually picks a Tuesday or Wednesday to announce the new iPhone. After that, iPhone 15 will typically be available to pre order that same Friday, then hit the stores the following Friday.

This being the case, our money is on the iPhone 15 release date window being between the 15th – 29th of September, 2023. That being said, it’s possible the release could run on into October.

iPhone 15 specifications & iPhone 15 Plus specifications (predicted) 

According to Apple’s new iPhone lineup, there is a standard iPhone line and a Pro line. The Pro version consists of two devices, iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max, while the standard version also consists of two: the base model iPhone and the iPhone Plus. The iPhone Plus model is the new addition. Apple will likely follow the same lineup for the iPhone 15.

There’s no concrete information on the iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Plus yet, but well known Apple commentators and leakers like Ming-Chi Kuo, ShrimpApplePro, and Mark Gurman have suggested the following:

  • Display: 6.1-inch for iPhone 15 and 6.7-inch for the iPhone 15 Plus. This year, Apple could make Dynamic Island available to the standard models. So, iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus could get a pill and a hole instead of a notch.  
  • Processor: The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus could sport the A16 Bionic Chip, currently used by the iPhone 14 Pro series devices. Apple will introduce the A17 chip, but it could be exclusive to the pro devices. 
  • RAM: Last year, the standard iPhone 14 models got a memory boost of 6GB. The iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will likely have the same. 
  • Port: The iPhone 15 and 15 Plus could sport a USB-C port. 
  • Camera: The iPhone 15 is rumored to get an 8P camera. One new element will be added to the lens material, reducing the image distortion.
