iPhone 15 Release Date: Expectations
Although there many speculations going on regarding the release date, Apple has not hinted at any particular time for the release of the iPhone 15 series, which is why one can only do guesswork based on Apple’s past performance that gives hints of their future plans.
As can be observed in the aforementioned table, Apple has a specific month when it announces its new smartphones i.e. September, except for 2020, the year that was dominated by a global pandemic, while the announcement dates are not just random ones in September but have all come within the first two weeks of the month.
There is a noticeable pattern in the release dates as well as Apple ships its smartphones 10 days after announcing their release date, with some notable exceptions, although it has also been noticed that sometimes Apple staggers the launch of certain handsets like iPhone X in 2017 and iPhone XR in 2018.
Therefore given Apple’s pattern, it is highly possible, or probable, that the announcement regarding the iPhone 15 series might happen within the first two weeks of September 2023 from September 4 to September 14.
It must be noted that Apple mostly holds its product announcements on Tuesdays, whenever possible, while September 4 is Labor Day holiday in the United States, which rules out that particular day and may very well avoid September 5, which is a Tuesday that comes off a three-day weekend.
If Apple sticks to its old habit of shipping smartphones 10 days after the launch event, the release date for the iPhone 15 series should be set around September 22, 2023, although it also comes with certain caveats as predicting anything with complete confidence nine months in advance is foolish and immature.
Nine months is a long period where many things can change between now and then, which is why you should not take it for granted that the iPhone 15 series will definitely come out on the given date.
