Apple Inc. recently announced its latest lineup of iPhones, generating excitement among tech enthusiasts eagerly awaiting the release.
Although the iPhone 15 series won't officially hit the market until Sept. 22, preorders for these highly anticipated devices open at 8 a.m. Eastern time on Friday, Sept. 15. With improved speed and camera enhancements, the new iPhones are poised to impress.
Enhanced Features Across Models
For those interested in the base-level iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models, a notable feature called Dynamic Island adds functionality to the "notch" area. While this feature was exclusive to Apple's premium iPhone models last year, it is now available in the base versions as well.
Owners of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will enjoy a lighter design thanks to a new titanium casing. In addition, the iPhone 15 Pro Max boasts enhanced telephoto technology, enabling zoom capabilities of up to five times—a notable improvement from the previous limit of three times.
All of the new iPhones will also feature USB-C charging.
Pricing and Storage Configurations
Apple has discontinued the 128GB storage option for the Pro Max lineup. As a result, the most affordable phone in this range, with 256GB of storage, will set you back $1,199. The other three models—the iPhone 15 Pro starting at $999, the iPhone 15 Plus starting at $899, and the iPhone 15 starting at $799—retain the same prices as the iPhone 14 line.
