Apple is expected to launch its new iPhones in October 2023. The company usually launches its new iPhones in September but a recent report suggests the delay of launch. The reason behind the date change could also be a limited supply of the iPhone 15 models when they debut later this year. Apple has faced previous delays with its new iPhones, making this situation not the first time.
iPhone 15 series launch delay
According to the latest information from a reliable source MacRumors, Wamsi Mohan, a global securities analyst at Bank of America said that the launch could be pushed to the fourth quarter. The prediction was made after conducting channel checks in Apple’s supply chain but there was no specific reason given behind the delay.
Apple may face an additional issue concerning the limited availability of iPhone models at their launch. The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are likely to have a restricted number of units initially. The reason behind this is due to the slimmer bezels that are planned for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
iPhone 15 Features and Specifications (Expected)
The upcoming iPhone 15 will flaunt a Dynamic Island-style display, which is currently available to the pro models only. Below you can check the key specifications the base model.
- 6.1-inch liquid retina display.
- A16 Bionic chipset.
- Dual rear camera system including a 48-megapixel image sensor.

Apple suppliers are reportedly using a new display manufacturing process to shrink the bezel size on the Pros. This process is causing problems with the displays made by LG Display. It’s a similar problem that Apple faced while increasing the display size of the Apple Watch Series 7, which led to a month’s delay.
