Today, on September 12, 2023, the tech world holds its collective breath as Apple prepares to unveil its newest flagship, the iPhone 15, at the ‘Wonderlust’ event. With rumors and leaks flooding the internet over the past few months, we have collated a treasure trove of information on what to expect. Here’s the lowdown on the iPhone 15 series.
iPhone 15 Design and Display:
Dynamic Island: The days of the notch are numbered. The iPhone 15 series is set to introduce the ‘Dynamic Island’ to all its models. This innovative design, which made its debut on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, essentially replaces the notch with a small centered cut-out for the front camera and Face ID sensors. Leaked images by Ice Universe showcase identical Dynamic Island placements across all iPhone 15 models. This design allows for enhanced screen real estate and adaptable app interfaces.
Screen Size: The screen sizes are expected to remain consistent with previous models, with the iPhone 15 boasting a 5.4-inch display, the Plus and Pro at 6.1 inches, and the Pro Max at 6.7 inches.
Titanium Frames: Stepping up the luxury quotient, the Pro models will flaunt a titanium chassis, a material known for its superior strength and scratch resistance, albeit at a steeper price. The standard models will continue to employ aluminum.
iPhone 15 Camera Capabilities:
Periscope Lens: The iPhone 15 Pro Max is rumored to bring a game-changer – a periscope lens offering up to 10x optical zoom. This innovative lens design, seen in some Android counterparts, uses internal reflection to achieve greater focal lengths without bulking up the phone.
Lens Specifications: While the Pro Max gets the periscope lens, other models will house a standard telephoto lens offering up to 3x optical zoom. All models are poised to feature a wide-angle lens, an ultra-wide-angle lens, and sensor-shift stabilization, previously exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Cinematic Mode: Videography gets a boost with the Cinematic Mode, allowing users to capture shallow depth-of-field videos, with the freedom to alter focus post-recording. This mode also supports Dolby Vision HDR, ensuring vibrant, high-contrast videos.
Other Noteworthy Features:
U2 Chip: A successor to the U1 chip, the U2 is expected to enhance ultra-wideband (UWB) connectivity and precise location tracking, potentially revolutionizing peer-to-peer connectivity and item tracking.
Satellite Communication: A feature that could redefine communication, allowing users to connect even in the most remote regions devoid of cellular network coverage. However, its availability might be subject to regional regulations and satellite access.

Apple’s ‘Wonderlust’ event is scheduled for 10:30 PM IST (10 AM PDT). If you’re keen on getting your hands on the latest iPhone, mark September 17 for pre-orders and September 24 for the shipping commencement.
