Apple will unveil its new iPhone 15 lineup in a range of new colors at a special event likely to be held on September 12. Here are all the colors we expect to see for the four models: iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
In the last few years, iPhone lineups have launched with just five color options, with a sixth following in the spring to boost sales midway through the device's product cycle.
Apple is expected to continue this trend for the 6.1-inch iPhone 15 and 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus. How do we know? Because leaked pictures suggest Apple will also color-match the charging cable that comes in the box with each device.
Leaked pictures of the cables therefore suggest Apple will offer the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus in the following colors (bear in mind that Apple may adopt different official names for them):
A question mark currently remains over the orange/coral color. The leaked orange cable shown above has appeared to look vaguely pink in earlier leaked photos, suggesting that it could be more of a coral shade. Apple offered 2018's iPhone XR in a Coral version, so it could well be bringing the color back for 2023.
More recently, we have heard rumors of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus possibly coming in a light green color, similar to the green finish available for the iPhone 12 and the discontinued iPhone 12 mini. However, sources remain unsure whether this could be introduced at launch, or as a mid-cycle option to freshen up the lineup, similar to when Apple introduced a Purple version of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini in April 2021.
Apple typically chooses four, cooler-toned colors for its iPhone Pro models. Last year, for example, Apple offered iPhone 14 Pro models in Deep Purple, Gold, Silver, and Space Black. This year, however, a design change is expected to switch things up a bit.
Apple's 6.1-inch iPhone 15 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Pro Max models are expected to feature a lighter titanium frame instead of a stainless steel frame for the first time, and to best show off material change, Apple is introducing a series of new colors.
Instead of Deep Purple, Apple is expected to unveil a new dark blue shade for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, which is not too far off from the blue of the iPhone 12 Pro, but with more gray for a deeper shade.
Meanwhile, rumors suggest that other colors will include a lighter silver-gray shade, a space black color, and a natural titanium color. Because of the switch from stainless steel to titanium, Apple is unlikely to offer a gold option this year, despite the color's popularity in some Asian markets. To summarize, the colorways are expected to be the following:
Apple is expected to unveil its new iPhone 15 lineup at an event held on Tuesday, September 12, although we are still awaiting official confirmation.
Based on previous years, Apple will likely reveal the date of the event in the form of media invitations sent out between Tuesday, August 29, and Tuesday, September 5.
