It’s now official. Apple has sent out invites for a September 12 event at the Steve Jobs’ Theater in Cupertino. Where Apple is going to be announcing the iPhone 15 series, alongside the Apple Watch Series 9, and potentially a couple of other smaller upgrades.
As usual, the event will start at 10AM PT from Apple Park. And the invite is a bit interesting. Showing off the rumored colors for the iPhone 15 Pro models. And it’s using the tagline of “wonderlust”. So read into that what you will.
What to expect from the iPhone 15 series
While we have a whole “what to expect” article that you can read here, about this Apple Event. Let’s go over the main event. That’s the iPhone 15 series.
We’ve actually been seeing leaks for the iPhone 15 for over a year already. Which shouldn’t be a huge surprise, as Apple has been working on this phone for a couple of years already – that’s not exclusive to Apple either. But we’ve seen a lot of rumors come out, and some get shot down. However, the biggest changes we’re expecting to see is, the new mute button. As well as the extremely thin bezels, also on the Pro models. And the Pro Max or Ultra, is set to get a new Periscope lens, allowing for potentially 5x telephoto zoom.
For the non-Pro iPhones, we’re expecting to see a few upgrades, but not nearly as many. It’ll get updated to the A16 Bionic chip, which was in the iPhone 14 Pro last year. It’s also set to get the Dynamic Island, and a number of new colors. It looks like Apple might be going for a bit more of a pastel look this year, for the regular iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus.
Of course, these things could change and we could even see bigger upgrades for the iPhone 15 by the time the event comes around on September 12. This happened with WWDC earlier this year, where we expected iOS 17 to be a small upgrade, and it actually turned out to be a bit larger than that.
