In line with previous reports, the research firm expects the iPhone 15 Pro Max to feature a Telephoto lens with periscope functionality, allowing for 10x optical zoom or higher, compared to the current 3x limitation. The Pro models should have an upgraded Main lens with an “8P” design, which would be one extra optical element for better camera performance.

TrendForce says iPhone 15 models will remain equipped with a Qualcomm modem for 5G because Apple is not yet satisfied with the mmWave performance of its in-house modem. The research firm believes Apple will introduce its own 5G modem in 2024.

Apple will likely announce the iPhone 15 lineup in September 2023.

iPhone 15 Pro Predicted to Feature Increased 8GB of RAM, USB-C Port, and More

iPhone 14 series was unveiled during the company’s ‘Far Out’ event in September but rumours of next year’s iPhone models, speculated to be the iPhone 15 series, have already started surfacing online. A reputed market analyst has now suggested that the high-end models in Apple’s 2023 iPhone family will debut with solid-state buttons instead of physical volume and power buttons, similar to the home buttons on iPhone 7, iPhone 8 and iPhone SE units. Kuo forecasts that iPhone 15 smartphones would come equipped with three Taptic Engine vibration motors to simulate the feeling of a click. The analyst states that a button-less design and support for USB type-C charging would be the major highlights of the iPhone 15 range.

iPhone 15: what we know so far

On Friday, TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo tweeted that physical volume and power buttons on next year’s two high-end iPhone 15 models will be replaced with solid-state buttons. The volume and power buttons of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max could adopt a solid-state button design similar to the home button design of the iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone SE 2 and iPhone SE 3. He also indicates that the launch of iPhone 15 lineup will take place in the second half of next year, which aligns with Apple’s usual release window for new iPhone models.

Kuo says Apple will equip the next-generation iPhone models with Taptic Engines on the internal left and right sides to provide haptic feedback similar to the physical clicking of buttons. Upcoming iPhone 15 models are expected to come equipped with three Taptic engines in lieu of one vibration motor on the iPhone 14. Kuo notes that the move could benefit Apple’s existing Taptic Engine suppliers – Luxshare ICT and AAC Technologies and the shipments of Taptic Engine would grow by 80 percent to 100 percent YoY in 2023.

Time stops for no one, and so we’re already looking towards the iPhone 15, despite the fact that the iPhone 14 has only just been unveiled.

iPhone 15 release date

We haven’t heard any iPhone 15 release date or launch date rumors yet, but that’s to be expected – they rarely occur more than a month before the launch event itself.

For the iPhone 14, that event fell on September 7, with three of the four phones going on sale over a week later, on September 16 (and the iPhone 14 Plus on October 7). Apple generally picks the first or second week of September for its launches, and usually opts for a Tuesday, though occasionally goes for a Wednesday event.

iPhone 15 release date 2023? Know more!

In 2023, that means September the 5 or 12 are quite likely (both are Tuesdays), though the 6 and 13 are possibilities too.

The iPhone 15 will likely be along in late 2023, unless Apple pulls a wildcard by using the ’14S’ name or something similar. That seems unlikely though, as we’ve already been hearing leaks and rumors using the iPhone 15 name.

Yes, that’s right – pre-release information about the upcoming iPhone is already out there, this far in advance. That’s not a total surprise, as Apple leaks sometimes take place years in advance of the product launch.

According to Kuo, Buttonless design and USB Type-C port would be the two major updates for iPhone 15.

iPhone 15 news, rumors and leaks

We’ve heard quite a few iPhone 15 rumors, though these have come out across a very broad span of time, so it’s not quite clear which are still accurate and which are old news.

Some of these seem obvious – one report says that Apple is working on the 3nm A17 Bionic chip for the iPhone 15. Given that the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max use the A16 Bionic, and that 17 is one higher than 16, we could have guessed this anyway.

However, the iPhone 14 used the older A15 Bionic chip, also seen in the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, and another report suggests that this new trend – of the non-Pro phones using the older chipsets – may well continue. That’s a claim we’ve heard multiple times.

Sticking with chipsets, it seems likely that Qualcomm will be supplying the 5G modem again. The Snapdragon X70 looks certain to get picked, offering improved performance from the Snapdragon X65 in the iPhone 14. 

Cut to the chase

  • What is it? Apple’s 2023 generation of smartphones
  • When is it out? Likely September 2023
  • How much will it cost? Possible price increase over iPhone 14
