  • Foxconn has reportedly begun trial production for the iPhone 15, ahead of its expected mass production later this year.
  • The production process for the iPhone 15 will be different this year, as it will take place in both China and India.
  • Leaks suggest that prices for the iPhone 15 will increase, with the iPhone 15 Pro series expected to have a wider price gap compared to the iPhone 15 Plus.
  • The iPhone 15 lineup is expected to feature four models similar to the iPhone 14 series, with higher-end models having features such as a titanium frame, solid-state haptic volume buttons, and a USB-C port with faster transfer speeds.



Foxconn has received instructions to start new machine trial production for the iPhone 15 and begin new product introduction (NPI) for the device, according to MacRumors. This process is taking place before the iPhone 15 is expected to enter mass production later this year and is meant to introduce the device's specific design and production needs to Foxconn. This year's process for mass production of the upcoming iPhone 15 will differ from previous years due to production taking place in both China and India.

Recent leaks suggest that iPhone 15 prices will increase, with a mysterious source on Weibo adding credibility to these reports. According to the source, "Apple will increase the price of this year's iPhone 15 Pro series, further widening the gap with the iPhone 15 Plus." These price hikes come as a surprise, as earlier leaks had indicated a decrease in prices. The credibility of the leaks are strengthened by the fact that Forbes sources have seemingly ‘verified’ the identity of the leaker, making it likely that the information should be taken seriously. The iPhone 15 lineup is expected to feature four models matching the sizes of this year's iPhone 14 series, including the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Ultra. Rumors suggest that the higher-end iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra will feature a titanium frame, solid-state haptic volume buttons, and USB-C with faster transfer speeds. The standard models are expected to gain Dynamic Island, a USB-C port with Lightning transfer speeds, and possibly a 48MP camera.
