Apple has announced the official iPhone 15 release date 2023, which is the 12th of September. The event is called Wonderlust, and it’s a pre-recorded event just like the last several events from Apple.

The launch date of iPhone 15 will be announced at the Apple Event. Simply put, we will know when exactly the iPhone 15 will be released during the Apple Event, which will take place on the 12th.

So, how long until iPhone 15 release after the Apple Event?

Normally, pre-orders for the new iPhone start within a week after the Apple Event. That means, since the Event is on Sep 12, you should be able to pre-order the iPhone 15 models somewhere around Sep 18.

However, it takes a week or two more for the new models to start shipping to customers. So, you should be able to get your hands on the new iPhone 15 before the end of September if you preorder.

In short, the Apple iPhone 15 release date is as follows.

  • Apple Event: Sep 12 (officially announced by Apple)
  • Pre-orders open: Somewhere around Sep 18
  • iPhones start shipping: Before the end of Sep

That should clear up all your concerns about the release date iPhone 15. Some leaks also suggest that the shipping of the iPhone 15 Pro Max might be delayed, and customers won’t get the new iPhone until later in October. That’s pretty much all you need to know iPhone 15 Pro Max release date — and Apple iPhone 15 launch date in general.
