At its “Wonderlust” event yesterday, Apple announced the iPhone 15 series. While the company boasted about the new features and enhancements the lineup offers, it expectedly omitted to specify the amount of RAM that each of its handsets has. But we already know that this year’s Pro models feature more RAM than the devices from last year.

The internal RAM of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max is 8GB, which is 2GB higher than what the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max had. This data was located in the Xcode 15 Release Candidate files. The type of RAM utilised on the iPhone 15 series is not specified, though.

The 6GB of RAM in the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus is the same as that in the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus from the previous year.

Beginning on September 15 in the initial round of nations, preorders for all four iPhone 15 models will be accepted; sales will commence on September 22. For price information on the iPhone 15 lineup for key markets, go here, and for coverage of the event from yesterday, click here.

These are the new iPhones’ main technical specifications. Particularly noteworthy is the fact that the A16 Bionic from the 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max is used in the 15 and 15 Plus, while the A17 Pro chip is used in the Pro versions. This is the first Apple chip built utilising a 3nm process, which results in far better transistor density and superior power efficiency. Apple even claims it to be an industry first.

It is very important that all four versions now include USB-C ports for charging and data transfer instead of Lightning. (Apple touted this as a positive step, which it is in many respects, but the corporation was compelled to make the adjustment due to impending regulation.) Due to their compatibility with the USB 3 standard, Pro models will enable quicker data transfers.

iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max release dates and prices

iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max release dates and prices

Announced on: September 12

On September 15, preorders will be accepted.

Availability: September 22

At the “Wonderlust“event on September 12, the iPhone 15 Pro Max was unveiled. The gadget will be made available to the public on Friday, September 22. Pre-orders begin on September 15th, a Friday. 

This timeline is consistent with Apple’s custom of releasing its new iPhones at a hardware-focused keynote that typically occurs in early September each year, often on the second Tuesday of the month. The freshly revealed products then went on sale around ten days later, on a Friday, one of the most significant opening weekends for an Apple product.

The predicted iPhone price increase didn’t materialise; the iPhone 15 Pro Max has the same starting price of $1,199 for the base 256GB model that the iPhone 14 Pro Max had. Therefore, the entry-level 512GB model costs $1399, while the top-tier 1TB model costs $1599. The absence of the 128GB model, which was available for $1099 on the iPhone 14 Pro Max last year, is notable. 

It’s important to note that before the official debut of a new iPhone family, rumours of a price increase have always been circulating. However, Apple finally put an end to such rumours by announcing the same unchanging cost as the previous year. This has occurred in the past, and it will undoubtedly occur again in 2023.
