REVEALED: All the rumored iPhone 15 changes and new features – from an entirely new charging port, a ‘smash-proof’ case and two new colors

  • Apple is set to unveil its new iPhone 15 sometime in September 
  • Rumors suggest it will be more expensive than previous smartphones 
  • READ MORE:  Apple could design the iPhone 15 to be shatterproof

Apple is still months away from launching its new smartphone, but rumors flooding the web could reveal the latest features of the iPhone 15 ahead of the event.

A game-changing titanium alloy frame, a larger batter and a USB-C charging port are just some of the many predictions made by tech experts.

Along with added features, Apple is also suggested to unleash new colors into the mix –  including some of the previous fan favorites.

The Cupertino-based company has not announced when it will release the new iPhone 15 family, but the event is typically held in September. 

Tech experts claim iOS users will have the options of a baby blue, mint green, pink and crimson shade when the smartphone launches in a few months

Apple never shares details of its upcoming iPhone before the official unveiling, but tech experts and patents usually give away what to expect.

The most expensive iPhone Pro models yet 

However, not all tips are exciting –  the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will be more expensive than previous Pro models.

Apple analyst Jeff Pu revealed in May that a price increase is on the horizon due to the Pro models featuring titanium frames and an A17 Bionic chip.

Pu did not reveal exact price-tags, it is worth noting that last year’s iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max started at £1,099/$999 and £1,199/$1,099, respectively.

Pu’s predictions – which were allegedly detailed in a document seen by – corroborate an unverified by a user called ‘Technology window’.

The Weibo post said: ‘Apple will increase the price of this year’s iPhone 15 Pro series, further widening the gap with the iPhone 15 Plus.’ 

The iPhone 15 will be available in new colors 

The crimson shade is believed to be lighter than the deep purple launched with the iPhone 14 but is still ‘very deep.’

The rumors and mock-ups were shared by 9to5Mac, which reports on Apple updates and discovered rumors of the new colors in a recent post on Weibo.

The crimson shade is believed to be lighter than the deep purple launched with the iPhone 14 but is still ‘very deep.’

And light green was released with the iPhone 13 lineup, but the upcoming shade could be darker – closer to a mint color.

The pink shade is a deeper pink described as ‘telemagent,’ and the light blue is ‘picton blue.’

However, the ‘exclusive’ dark red color will only be available for the iPhone 15 Pro and mint green for the flagship and iPhone 15 Plus smartphones. 

According to 9to5Mac’s source, the information on the color options is ‘still early’ and ‘could change’ closer to the fall, so the colors shared could be off.

And Apple tests multiple colors of new iPhone models before they are released. 

A shatterproof design, USB-C charging port and solid-state volume button

While titanium rivals steel in strength, it can be up to 45 percent lighter – potentially making the Pro model far easier to carry with a similar resilience. Pictured: A rumored dummy iPhone 15 Pro model that was allegedly leaked in April

The increased price could be due to the new titanium design, which can handle higher temperatures better than steel and offers similar protection against water damage.

Titanium can handle higher temperatures better than steel too, while also offering a similar level of protection against water damage.

Footage of a iPhone 15 Pro ‘dummy’ was leaked in April and surfaced on the Chinese version of TikTok.

A titanium-based frame was also shown on this prototype, alongside a new solid-state volume button replacing the mute switch.

If proven true, this would be the first time Apple has changed the button since the iPhone’s launch in 2007, likely allowing users to toggle with its sensitivity.

The dummy also included a USB-C charging port in place of the usual Lightning port.

This alteration follows previous talk from Apple’s executive Greg Joswiak who said that the tech giant was ‘having to comply’ with new USB laws passed by the EU.

A new video claims to show a dummy unit of iPhone 15 Ultra – the most expensive of the upcoming iPhone 15 range that is expected to be released this September. 

With that in mind, it’s already publicly known that the company is replacing its own Lightning charging technology – discernible by its eight pins – with USB-C in EU countries.

He previously said: ‘Obviously, we’ll have to comply; we have no choice, just as we do around the world to comply to local laws.

‘But we think the approach would have been better environmentally and better for our customers to not have a government be that prescriptive.’

The iPhone 15 will have a larger battery

An alleged Foxconn worker, the company that manufactures a bulk of Apple’s iPhones, told ItHome today that the iPhone 15 family is set to have larger batteries.

The iPhone 15 will feature an 18 percent larger battery, iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 15 Pro a 14 percent larger battery, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max a 12 percent larger battery. 

This means the iPhone 15 could have a 3877mAh capacity, iPhone 15 Plus 4912mAh, iPhone 15 Pro 3650mAh and iPhone 15 Pro Max could have 4852mAh.

The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are believed to feature the the A16 Bionic processor, while the Pro and Max will have the new A17 Bionic chip Apple announced in June.
