Leak: Apple Might Hold Its Unveiling Event on 12th September

The excitement for Apple’s upcoming event has been building for several months, and it is coming sooner than expected. The Apple event will reveal many new devices to users, including the much-anticipated iPhone 15. The iPhone 15 has generated a greater buzz than its predecessors due to the numerous updates it will receive, such as the Type-C port.

A recent rumour on Twitter (Now X) claims that Apple’s event will take place on September 12, 2023. Majin Bu, who has previously provided us with insider leaks for the upcoming 4k supported Type-C cable, claims that Apple will hold the event on September 12th. However, the user stated that his source has chosen to remain anonymous for obvious reasons.

The rumour has considerable credibility because all Apple events (with the exception of the iPhone 12) have occurred in the second week of September. The trend for the event date has always been the same, however, there is currently no anticipation as to when Apple will formally announce the event date.

iPhone 15’s Expected Features

The introduction of the Dynamic Island and a 48-megapixel main camera on the iPhone 14 Pro models made a few waves last year, but that was about it in terms of game-changing upgrades.

With the release of the iPhone 15, which is rumoured to arrive in four different models, Apple will officially make the switch to USB-C as its smartphone charging standard, a decision that was likely influenced by legislative efforts to mandate the standard in European markets. Although the rumoured price range may come as a bit of a sticker shock, this is an iPhone series to watch with significant curiosity.

According to Bloomberg’s chief tech journalist Mark Gurman, who has accurately reported on Apple’s product plans for more than a decade, the iPhone 15 lineup will contain four models this year: the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Analysts agree that the removal of Apple’s Lightning port and adoption of a USB-C charging standard will be a game-changer for all four models, though the biggest changes will likely be held for the iPhone 15 Pro series.

Expected Pricing

Of course, we have no idea how much the iPhone 15 will cost just yet, but we could speculate based on rumours and the iPhone 14’s initial retail price:

128GB: $799 / £849 / AU$1,339
256GB: $899 / £959 / AU$1,579
512GB: $1,099 / £1,179 / AU$1,899

At first, we thought the iPhone 15 would have a starting price of $799 (or equivalent in other currencies), like the iPhone 14. Recent speculation, however, suggests that Apple’s increased production costs will cause the iPhone 15’s price to be higher than that of the iPhone 14’s.

If confirmed, this would be the first series-wide price hike for an iPhone in the United States since 2017. Even as recently as the iPhone 14 series was released last year, prices increased in international regions.

Apple may decide to follow the lead of rivals like Samsung and Oppo and remove the 128GB storage option from the iPhone 15 this year. However, we anticipate that this choice will be made for the company’s upcoming Pro models only.
