iPhone 15 Pro comes in blue and gray color options instead of gold and purple: report

Color options for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max have surfaced online ahead of their launch next month. These handsets are said to be lighter as they use a new material for the body and feature some notable hardware improvements compared to their predecessors. This year, both Pro models could come with Apple’s rumored 3nm A17 Bionic chip with improved performance and battery efficiency, while the top-of-the-line iPhone 15 Pro Max could feature a new periscope camera with better optical zoom.

According to a 9to5Mac report, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will not be available in Gold and Deep Purple color options. While the purple colorway was only introduced with the iPhone 14 Pro line last year, the Cupertino-based company has been introducing its Pro models in gold for the past five years. Though those color options have been discontinued, according to the report, they will be replaced with Dark Blue and Titan Gray color options in addition to the existing Space Black and Silver colorways.

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman previously claimed that Apple plans to phase out the use of stainless steel for the iPhone 15 Pro models in favor of a new titanium body. This is intended to make the upcoming phones more durable while reducing the overall weight. According to Gurman, Apple could unveil the iPhone 15 series at an event on September 12.

Meanwhile, the report claims that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will come in black, blue, green, pink, and yellow color options. The company is expected to equip all iPhone 15 models with a USB Type-C connector instead of the proprietary Lightning connector. All four models are said to feature the Dynamic Island introduced on last year’s Pro models.

With the addition of the USB Type-C port, the iPhone 15 series smartphones are expected to finally support faster data transfer speeds – if reports that they will support Thunderbolt/USB 4 connectivity are true, the handsets might offer transmission speeds of up to 40 Gbit/s. In addition, the handsets should support wired charging with up to 35 W via the modern USB port.
