Apple officially announced the new iPhone 15 lineup at its Wonderlust event, which will be available for pre-order on September 15 and will ship a week later on September 22. Like last year, there’s a basic iPhone 15, a larger iPhone 15 Plus, and a pair of Pro models known as the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. But while the long-awaited processor bump with a new A17 Pro Bionic chip is here for the 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max (the standard 15 and 15 Plus get last year’s A16 Bionic), what’s very different this time is the presence of a USB. C charging/data port and the inclusion of Dynamic Island in all new models.
While we have yet to see how all of these new iPhones play out in our upcoming reviews, early adopters will have the opportunity to pre-order starting September 15. If you’re excited enough about the changes Apple made this year to warrant a day one purchase, below is a breakdown of the various iPhone 15 models and links to Apple’s pricing and configuration details. We will update this post with more information once pre-orders officially begin and other retailers/operators have more information.
The standard iPhone 15 starts at $799 in a variety of colors with 128GB of storage, and its pricing/configuration page is currently live on Apple’s site (although you can’t place orders until September 15). Stepping up to 256GB of storage adds $100 to the cost, while opting for the maximum 512GB configuration will set you back $1,099. Whichever you choose, it will arrive on September 22.
For those who prefer their phone to be more like a surfboard when it comes to screen real estate, the iPhone 15 Plus starts at $899 with 128GB of storage and will be available for pre-order at Apple on the 15th. The Plus-size model already commands a $100 premium over the standard iPhone 15, and its 256GB and 512GB configurations cost $999 and $1,199 respectively. However, unlike last year, the iPhone 15 Plus arrives at the same time as its counterparts. (The 14 Plus was delayed a couple of weeks into 2022.)
The main flagship of the iPhone 15 line, the titanium iPhone 15 Pro, starts at $999 and comes in a variety of less vibrant colors, which you can pre-order from Apple September 15th. Despite being a “Pro” model, it only starts with 128GB of storage, but you can get a 256GB model for $1099, a 512GB model for $1299, or a 1TB load for $1499. That said , it has a number of new features, including USB-C, a lighter build, thinner bezels, an action button, and even some small updates like Wi-Fi 6E and a Thread radio.
For the iPhone with more, well, allThe iPhone 15 Pro Max will cost you $1,199 more directly from Apple when pre-orders begin on the 15th. The Pro Max still starts with 256GB of larger storage, but you can pay more when you buy one to get up to 1TB for $1,599. It’s a pretty high price to pay for a phone that doesn’t do anything extra fancy (like fold), but at least the new titanium construction means it’ll be a bit lighter than Apple’s previous gigantic boards.
