iPhone 15 Colors: What to Know

Update: Apple has unveiled its new iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models, available in a range of new iPhone 15 colors and iPhone 15 Pro colors. Shipping begins September 22.

Apple will unveil its new iPhone 15 lineup in a range of new colors during its "Wonderlust" event, set to be held on Tuesday, September 12 at 10.00 a.m. Pacific Time. 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.

iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus

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. This is based on leaked pictures that suggest Apple may also color-match the charging cable that comes in the box with each device.

Previously, all ‌iPhone‌ models have come with a white Lightning cable featuring a white rubber jacket, regardless of the color of the device itself. However, this year all iPhone 15 models are switching to the USB-C port standard, and Apple may choose to include color-matched cables with each device, perhaps to celebrate the transition.

Leaked pictures of the cables would suggest Apple will offer the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus in black, white, yellow, blue, and orange/coral pink. A question mark currently remains over the orange/coral color, however. 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.

iPhone 15 Mock Green Feature
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.

All that being said, a day after Apple announced its September 12 event, analyst Ming-Chi Ku claimed the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models will be available in black, yellow, blue, pink, and green. Based on these reports, we could therefore see Apple offer any of the following:

  • Midnight/Black
  • Starlight/White
  • Yellow
  • Blue
  • Orange/Pink
  • Green

While a red color is absent in the rumored lineup, it is possible that Apple will refresh the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus with a PRODUCT(RED) model in the spring of 2024, as it did in spring 2017 and spring 2018. In March 2023, Apple also introduced a new Yellow color option for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, so we could again see another new color for the iPhone 15 equivalent models early next year.

iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max

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.

iPhone 15 Pro Colors Mock Feature
Instead of Deep Purple, Apple is expected to unveil a new 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.

Back in early July, we revealed Apple was testing four different color options for the ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌. To summarize, they are:

  • Blue
  • Space Black / Space Gray
  • Titanium Gray
  • Silver

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. With the removal of the gold color option, we can expect a switch to more gray tones for the ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌. Apple is expected to replace gold with a color option known internally as "Titanium Gray." Titanium Gray, as the name implies, is a color option similar to the color of natural titanium - darker than Silver, but lighter than the Space Black option.

iPhone 15 Series Announcement Date

Apple will unveil its new iPhone 15 lineup at an event held on Tuesday, September 12.

I do wish the pro phones came in funkier colors - in addition to the serious colors for serious professionals, of course.

I’d be all over an iPhone Pro in the kind of purple the iPhone 12 was available in, or the green of the iPhone 11.
