The upcoming iPhone 15 surprises users with a vibrant range of colors and enhanced features.
In a recent leak endorsed by renowned Apple insider ShrimpApplePro, it has revealed that the highly anticipated iPhone 15 will offer users a fresh palette of colors. According to information shared on Chinese social media site Weibo, Apple’s latest flagship device will introduce three new colors: green, light yellow, and pink, alongside the existing Midnight, Starlight, and Product (RED) options.
The introduction of multiple new colors for the iPhone 15 is a departure from Apple’s usual practice of releasing one or two new colors each year. Notably, this change comes as a surprise, especially since a market report earlier this year indicated that blue and purple were the most favored color choices among iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus buyers.
Among the new colors, pink stands out as it has a highly requested option by customers for several years. Reports in March initially leaked rumors of a bubblegum pink finish, although the same report also suggested the arrival of a brighter blue variant. Apple has recently shown its commitment to meeting customer demands by launching a 15-inch MacBook Air, further bolstering the possibility of a pink iPhone 15.
While opinions on color choices are subjective, these revelations raise questions about the decision to discontinue popular colors like blue, purple, and the deeper yellow shades in the iPhone 15 lineup.
In addition to the color options, speculation surrounds the pricing of the iPhone 15 range. Leaks have suggested that prices for the Pro models may see an increase of up to $200, potentially influenced by the incorporation of a new titanium chassis. However, concrete details regarding pricing are still uncertain.
Amidst the color and pricing discussions, certain core upgrades for the iPhone 15 series have widely anticipated. The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max models expected to feature next-generation 3nm A17 chipsets, slimmer bezels, upgraded UWB (Ultra-Wideband) technology, and a solid-state Action button, replacing the traditional mute switch. The standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models are likely to adopt the design aesthetics of the iPhone 14 Pro and utilize the A16 chip. Moreover, all iPhone 15 models are expected to transition from Lightning to USB-C connectivity.
Additional sources have indicated a high likelihood of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus being available in pink, described as “bright and eye-catching.” However, there has been no mention of the previously rumored bright blue variant, which aligns with Apple’s unlikely adoption of brighter iterations of existing colors in the same release cycle. The hero color for the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max remains uncertain, with conflicting reports suggesting both a dark red and deep blue finish.
