Apple has announced plans to hold a special event dubbed ‘Wanderlust’ that will be held on the Tuesday of , September 12 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time as it launches the iPhone 15, the Apple Watch Series 9, the new version of the Apple Watch Ultra among other gadgets. Like last year, the event is set to take place at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California.
Some of the anticipated devices ahead of the launch include the iPhone 15 plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max that will see additional feature updates. A minor redesign is expected with slimmer bezels and slight changes to the curves of the corners, plus the iPhone 15 Pro models will have a titanium frame rather than a stainless steel frame.
There is a likelihood of Apple’s first 3-nanometer chip, the A17, included in the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max. Macrumors suggests an Action button instead of a mute switch. The Action button may be customizable, much like the Action button on the Apple Watch Ultra.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to gain a periscope zoom lens that will allow for 5x or 6x optical zoom, up from 3x. The size of the hardware required for the feature will limit it to the largest Pro Max device. In terms of display size, we are expecting the 6.1-inch iPhone 15, the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus, the 6.1-inch iPhone 15 Pro, and the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Pro Max. The models will feature the Dynamic Island, an updated 5G chip from Qualcomm, and most notably, a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port.
The iPhone 15 Pro may start at $1,099, while the iPhone 15 Pro Max could be priced roughly at $1,199. Pricing on the standard iPhone 15 models is not expected to change according to Macrumors.
