As with previous years, abundant leaks regarding Apple's forthcoming iPhones have surfaced, affording us a comprehensive idea of what to anticipate from each fresh device, far in advance of their formal unveiling.

The present year is no different. Despite the official announcement of the iPhone 15 and its variants not expected until September, whispers and speculation about the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max (which may eventually be christened the iPhone 15 Ultra) have been rife.

Although we can't make any definitive claims about these devices at this point, we believe a significant portion of the speculations will hit the mark, especially considering the consistency among leak sources. As such, we've assembled a compilation of the probable specifications for each of the upcoming iPhones below.

Anticipated Specifications for iPhone 15

  • Screen: 6.1-inch OLED
  • Resolution: 1179 x 2556 pixels
  • Refresh rate: 60Hz
  • Chipset: A16 Bionic
  • Rear cameras: 48MP wide, 12MP ultra-wide
  • Front camera: 12MP
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 128GB, 256GB, 512GB
  • Battery: Estimated 3,279mAh

Based on the prevailing leaks, it's anticipated that the iPhone 15 will carry the same processor as the iPhone 14 Pro, specifically the A16 Bionic. While this isn't a fresh development, it does represent an improvement from the A15 Bionic chipset that powered the base model of the iPhone 14.

The iPhone 15 is predicted to pair the A16 Bionic with 6GB of RAM and offer storage options of 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB, mirroring the specs of the iPhone 14.

Similarly, no significant modifications are anticipated for the main screen specs. Rumors suggest a 6.1-inch OLED display with a resolution of approximately 1179 x 2556 and a 60Hz refresh rate. Notably, it's expected to feature a Dynamic Island instead of the classic notch.

Although there hasn't been much chatter regarding the battery, we anticipate it will be akin to the previous model, hovering around 3,279mAh. One significant departure, however, may be in the charging method: a transition to USB-C from Lightning, marking a substantial shift for Apple.

Enhancements to the camera system are also predicted. The main sensor may be upgraded to a 48MP module, borrowed from the iPhone 14 Pro, replacing the 12MP sensor found in its predecessor. It's likely to be complemented by a 12MP ultra-wide and a 12MP front-facing camera, similar to the previous generation.

Anticipated Specifications for iPhone 15 Plus

  • Screen: 6.7-inch OLED
  • Resolution: 1284 x 2778 pixels
  • Refresh rate: 60Hz
  • Chipset: A16 Bionic
  • Rear cameras: 48MP wide, 12MP ultra-wide
  • Front camera: 12MP
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 128GB, 256GB, 512GB
  • Battery: Estimated 4,323mAh

The iPhone 15 Plus is projected to continue the tradition of its forebears as a larger alternative to the standard iPhone 15. Consistent with the rumors surrounding the iPhone 15, it's expected that the primary upgrades to the iPhone 15 Plus will revolve around the camera system. This includes a shift to a 48MP primary sensor from a 12MP one. The new primary sensor will likely be accompanied by a 12MP ultra-wide and a 12MP front-facing camera, as was the case with the iPhone 14 Plus. In addition, there seems to be a continuation of the chipset – the A16 Bionic, which was also featured in the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.

Aside from these changes, the rumored specifications sound familiar to the current model. These include 6GB of RAM, storage options of 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB, a battery of approximately 4,323mAh, and a 6.7-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 60Hz and a resolution around 1284 x 2778.

Nonetheless, the iPhone 15 Plus is likely to sport a few notable alterations, namely a Dynamic Island in place of the traditional notch and a shift to a USB-C port from the customary Lightning port.

Anticipated Specifications for iPhone 15 Pro

  • Specification: Rumored Detail
  • Screen: 6.1-inch OLED
  • Pixel Count: 1179 x 2556
  • Refresh Rate: Adaptive 1-120Hz
  • Processor: A17 Bionic
  • Rear Cameras: 48MP wide, 12MP ultra-wide, 12MP telephoto with 3x optical zoom
  • Front Camera: 12MP
  • Memory: 8GB
  • Storage Options: 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB
  • Battery: Estimated 3,200mAh

The iPhone 15 Pro is touted to receive substantial upgrades, with the most significant being the introduction of a new A17 Bionic chipset. This chipset is reported to deliver a 20% boost in CPU performance compared to its predecessor. Moreover, there might be an increase in RAM, moving up to 8GB from the 6GB found in the iPhone 14 Pro.

While there isn't much buzz around the battery, we wouldn't be surprised if it remains close to the previous model's capacity of around 3,200mAh. However, the reportedly improved efficiency of the new chipset could potentially enhance battery life.

An anticipated change in charging approach, switching to a USB-C port from the Lightning port, is also being discussed. There are also rumors of Apple offering high 40Gbps data transfer speeds. Additionally, the iPhone 15 Pro may debut reverse wireless charging on an iPhone for the first time.

The storage capacity is expected to be consistent with the previous generation, starting at 128GB and extending up to 1TB. Similarly, the display could be a 6.1-inch OLED with a resolution of 1179 x 2556 and a variable refresh rate of 1-120Hz.

The camera system is anticipated to remain similar, likely incorporating a 48MP wide, 12MP ultra-wide, 12MP telephoto lens (with 3x optical zoom), and a 12MP front-facing camera. However, there is some speculation of a potential upgrade to the camera system due to reports suggesting the use of a new 'state-of-the-art' Sony sensor.

Anticipated Specifications for iPhone 15 Ultra

  • Screen: 6.7-inch OLED
  • Resolution: 1290 x 2796 pixels
  • Refresh rate: Adaptive 1-120Hz
  • Chipset: A17 Bionic
  • Rear cameras: 48MP wide, 12MP ultra-wide, 12MP telephoto with 6x variable zoom
  • Front camera: 12MP dual-lens
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 256GB, 512GB, 1TB
  • Battery: Estimated 4,323mAh or higher

The iPhone 15 Ultra, also potentially known as the iPhone 15 Pro Max, is anticipated to be the apex model in the iPhone 15 series, although its official name is yet to be confirmed.

In several respects, it is expected to mirror the iPhone 15 Pro, featuring the same powerful A17 Bionic chipset and 8GB of RAM - both representing improvements over the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Additionally, the model is projected to include a USB-C port with support for fast 40Gbps data transfers and possibly even reverse wireless charging.

However, the iPhone 15 Ultra is also anticipated to surpass the iPhone 15 Pro in several aspects. For instance, it might start with a storage capacity of 256GB, higher than the 128GB starting capacity of the iPhone 15 Pro.

The iPhone 15 Ultra's screen could be larger and boast a higher resolution (predicted to be 6.7 inches and 1290 x 2796) than the 15 Pro's. Furthermore, there are rumors of increased brightness, with leaks hinting at a potential brightness of 2,500 nits, up from the 2,000 nits in the iPhone 14 Pro Max. This would arguably make it the brightest phone display in the current market.

Like its predecessor, it's expected to have a variable refresh rate of 1-120Hz. However, the battery is likely to be larger, though the exact size has not yet been leaked. The iPhone 14 Pro Max, for reference, has a 4,323mAh battery.

There could also be camera enhancements, both in comparison to the Ultra's predecessor and the rest of the iPhone 15 series. Leaks suggest the Ultra could feature a periscope camera, offering likely around a 6x optical zoom as opposed to the 3x offered by the 14 Pro Max. It could even have a variable zoom lens, providing various optical zoom levels. Additionally, rumors point to the incorporation of a larger 48MP Sony sensor for the main camera and a dual-lens front-facing camera.
