We are only 12 days away from witnessing the launch of the iPhone 15, destined to take place on September 12th, 2023, from Apple Park in Cupertino, California. However, if you can’t keep your excitement together and want to know about the to-be-launched Apple products, then here’s a dose of what to expect.
Apple iPhone 15 Lineup
The iPhone 15 lineup will feature two entry-level models, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, along with two high-end models, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Like always, the entry-level models will inherit specs and features from their pricey siblings (last year launched pro models), such as the A16 chip, Dynamic Island interface, and a 48-megapixel rear camera.
The latest lineup of the iPhones is expected to feature USB-C charging support instead of lightning cable. However, as per the rumours, only pro models are expected to come with support for USB-C charging. Besides type-c support, the pro models are expected to feature an iOS 17 along with an action button (replacing a mute toggle), similar to the one on the Apple Watch Ultra.
The new iPhones are expected to come with new colour options and matching charging cables rather than a plain white cable. The cables are rumoured to have a bigger length and are also expected to be more durable than before. The iPhone 15 lineup will feature a 48MP primary camera, 12 MP selfie camera, and the pro models are expected to have an additional 12 MP camera with 3x optical zoom.
The forthcoming launch of the Apple Watch Series 9 is anticipated in the pipeline of expectations, characterised as an evolutionary advancement from its predecessor, the Series 8. The device will maintain a consistent resemblance to the Apple Watch Series 8 and is poised to concentrate its enhancements on the refinement of the cores. The new S9 chip will be based on the A15 Bionic chip and promises a marked elevation in both efficacy and efficiency, along with improved battery longevity. The company is also expected to launch a fresh pink variant for the forthcoming Apple Watch Series 9.
Apple Watch Ultra 2
Last year, Apple launched Watch Ultra at a price point of $800, and as per the trusted tipsters, the company is expected to launch the Apple Watch Ultra 2, an enhanced iteration of the Apple Watch Ultra. The Watch Ultra 2 is projected to incorporate the same advanced S9 processor upgrade scheduled for the Apple Watch Series 9, accompanied by novel innovations in 3D printed components. The second-generation Apple Watch Ultra raises the possibility of a weight reduction compared to its predecessor. The company might also introduce a fresh, darker colour option, potentially including a black titanium hue, expanding the spectrum of choices available to consumers.
Besides the above-mentioned products, Apple is expected to launch AirPods Pro with a USB-C case and new Apple Watch Bands. Multiple reports have indicated that Apple is shifting from its customary practice of introducing leather iPhone 15 cases, a tradition maintained since 2013 during the annual iPhone launches. Instead, they would present cases with a leather-like appearance that incorporate environmentally conscious materials, aligning with a more eco-friendly approach.
