What was the iPhone 15 release date?

Californian giant Apple officially announced the launch of the iPhone 15 at its famous annual Apple Keynote event on 12 September 2023. The iPhone 15 went on sale to the general public on the 22nd of September 2023, which was after a one-week pre-order period.

The great performance of the iPhone 15 is based on the power of the A16 Bionic chip developed by Apple itself. This chip not only ensures the smartphone's long battery life, but also the quality of calls (voice isolation), photos and graphics in video games.

As intuitive and fun to use as ever, the iOS17 interface offers new features to make your everyday life more extra than ordinary. For example, you can personalise the image that appears when you call your contacts, transcribe audio messages and create stickers. And you'll love the Dynamic Island which is now available to the base model of the 15 series (before it was only available to the iPhone 14 Pro series) - an information bubble that pops up on the screen so you never miss a thing you're doing.

Whether you're making FaceTime calls, downloading files or playing games in real time, the speed is there for the taking. Wi-Fi 6 gives you enhanced quality when you're streaming films or making internet calls.

Looking for someone near you but can't find them? Simply share your location using the 2ᵉ generation Ultra Wideband chip, which is 3 times more accurate.

What's more, the iPhone 15's USB-C connector is compatible with MacBooks and iPads. Another iPhone 15 superpower: it can charge your Apple Watch and AirPods.

Colours available

The iPhone 15 comes in 5 colours, 4 of which are rather soft:

  • Black

The iPhone 15 features a 75% recycled aluminium design with a Ceramic Shield front panel and a tinted glass back. In other words, it's incredibly shock-resistant, and particularly resistant to splashes, water and dust. You can dive to depths of up to 6 metres for up to 30 minutes to take beautiful underwater photos and videos.

Where can I buy the iPhone 15 cheaper?

As you can see, the price of a new iPhone 15 isn't for everyone. But we know how you can afford it without breaking the bank. To treat yourself and help the planet at the same time, don't hesitate to opt for a refurbished iPhone 15 sold on Back Market (you usually have to wait a few months before they appear on the platform). Our smartphones are refurbished by certified professionals who check them from every angle. You can be sure you're buying a smartphone in perfect working order and of very high quality.

And since Apple isn't known for coming up with a revolution every year (who could?), there's not much difference between an iPhone 15 and an iPhone 14. It's probably a good time to look at these older models (including the iPhone 13), which saw their prices drop after the iPhone 15 was announced.

For extra peace of mind, It's always good to know that all products on the Back Market platform come with a 12-month guarantee and a 30-day returns period.
