As September approaches, all eyes are focused on the upcoming iPhone 15 series. According to a recent report, the iPhone 15 launch may take place on September 13th. According to speculation, the iPhone 15 series will be available on September 22nd.
In the latest edition of Bloomberg’s Power On newsletter, Mark Gurman discusses Apple’s upcoming iPhones. According to him, the iPhone 15 sale will begin around September 22nd, a week after the launch event which is expected to take place on September 12th or 13th. The dates may not be the final ones, given Gurman’s accuracy regarding Apple updates and iPhone launches occurring in September.
It has been reported that Apple may face supply shortages for its new iPhone lineup. There is even speculation that the release date may be moved to October. As a result, Apple may only have a limited number of iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max units available in September, even if the launch goes according to plan.
As reported in Apple’s Q2 earnings report (April-June), iPhone sales are also not at their best. There was a decrease in revenue from $83 billion last year to $81.8 billion for the company’s fourth quarter. With over one billion subscriptions, Apple’s services hit an all-time revenue record. Apple mentioned that it saw good iPhone sales in emerging markets such as India, but global sales for last year’s lineup decreased by two percent.
The iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max are expected to cost $100 more than the 14 Pro pair. Apple may not simply raise prices, however, as sources are reporting the Pro models will also get bigger storage capacities.
With the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, you can choose from 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB. According to Red Lotus Technology’s Weibo post, the 15 Pro is expected to start at 256GB and have a top storage tier of 2TB. According to Korean blogger yeux1122, the maximum storage has increased to 2TB, but the base storage has not.
Apple Stores currently sell the 128GB iPhone 14 Pro for $1,000, while the 256GB is $1,100. According to the rumors above, a 256GB 15 Pro will cost the same as a 256GB 14 Pro. You don’t have to spend over $1,000 on a new Pro, which is a good thing unless you had hoped to save money.
