What to expect from Apple’s presentation on September 12
If we are guided by rumors from experts, as well as Apple’s standard design of new products per year, on September 12 we will see smartphones from the iPhone 15 line: iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro Max. There is a possibility that the main novelties will be called iPhone 15 Ultra, but this is not yet certain. In addition, the main update of the Apple Watch line will not be shown, but rather new versions of the iOS operating systems.
iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus
There will be two basic iPhone 15s: standard and with a larger screen and battery. As expected, here we will see everything that in the iPhone 14 line only the Pro version got, namely:
the displays will receive an oval Dynamic Island cutout, like the 14 Pro, the main camera will receive a 48-megapixel sensor, the display bezels will become thinner, and the display of the basic version will be slightly larger than that of the iPhone 14, about 0.1 inch

What improvements have the models received?
The main innovation will be the long-awaited transition to the USB-C connector, as required by the European Union. Additionally, there will be support for more powerful adapters up to 35 W.

iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max
The main (and unpleasant) innovation in the iPhone 15 Pro line will be that it will be more expensive and is expected to cost around $100. This is because Apple is moving some of its production from China to India and Vietnam, which requires investment and logistical restructuring. Otherwise, the new items will inherit most of the main features of firmware number 14. But there will be changes.

What improvements have the models received?
According to experts, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will receive the following improvements.
updated design with rounded case edges; screen bezels will be reduced from 2.2 to 1.5 mm. Thanks to this, the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be more compact and the firmware screen will increase by 0.1 inches. Switching to silent mode will be a thing of the past, replaced by a customizable button. A periscopic zoom will appear with a five-fold zoom. This technology was actively used by other manufacturers, such as Huawei, 2-3 years ago, but Apple avoided it. True, this will affect only the iPhone 15 Pro Max, the compact firmware will not have enough space in the case, and the Lightning connector will also be replaced by USB-C with support for 35W charging and the USB 3.2 standard. This will allow data to be transferred over the wire at a higher speed, approximately five times faster.

iPhone 15 release date in Russia
The new smartphones will not be officially sold in Russia. But, as in 2022, new items will appear in major retail chains with a delay of several weeks. It makes no sense to wait for sales to start earlier than worldwide, as happened with Samsung smartphones. Apple does not allow this for suppliers.
The first devices will appear in Russia literally a day after the start of their sales in the world. But its price will be exorbitant. As the beginning of winter approaches, supplies will improve and prices will stabilize.
Prices of new iPhones in Russia and in the world.
iPhone prices are expected to remain at the same level as in previous years.
IN THE USA:
The Phone 15 starts at $800, the iPhone 15 Plus starts at $900, the iPhone 15 Pro is expected to start at $1,100, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max starts at $1,300.
In Russia, prices for the iPhone 15 Pro in the first weeks of sales will start at 150 thousand rubles. You can buy a regular iPhone 15 at a price of 105-110 thousand rubles for the basic model.
Is the iPhone 15 worth buying?
There is no need to talk about any radical update of the line. The base iPhone 15 will receive everything that the iPhone 14 Pro previously received. All the most delicious new features will be collected in the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro Max, primarily the significantly improved camera. If you have a smartphone that is more than 2 or 3 years old, then it makes sense to upgrade to the iPhone 15. If you bought an iPhone 14 a year ago, and even more so an iPhone 14 Pro, then it only makes sense to upgrade to the iPhone 15 Pro Max, and even then, if the battery has already begun to signal the end of its useful life. , or if you are a passionate photographer and need the ultimate camera.
