Update: The new iPhone 15 colors are important, but so is our iPhone 15 Pro Max review, which is now live, in case you’re wondering how Apple’s new iPhone performs.
The Apple iPhone 15 launch event took place on September 12, and along with a slew of announcements, Apple unveiled five iPhone 15 colors. There were several leaks that give us an indication of what iPhone colors could be announced, and thankfully we now know exactly what hues we’ll be able to get when the iPhone 15 release date of September 22 comes around.

As we’ve come to expect, Apple will offer five unique colors for its iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models this year, and four iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max colors.
iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus colors
Apple showed off five new iPhone 15 colors, including black, blue, green, yellow and pink. This largely lined up with previous leaks, which hinted we would see the majority of these colors announced. However, the new green color caught many off guard.
The most substantial evidence of what iPhone 15 colors we were expecting came after images of what were supposedly iPhone 15 color-matching charging cables leaked online. However, the actual iPhone 15 colors we’re getting are as follows:
Along with the green color, it’s nice to see Apple bring back its pink color. Apple last used the color on its iMac 24-inch model and 2018’s iPhone XR.
Apple may also add a new color later down the line. It released a yellow iPhone 14 in spring to help boost sales, so we expect a similar strategy this time around. It remains to be seen what color Apple will choose this time around, but the yellow iPhone was popular enough to warrant being a launch color this time around.
There’s a chance we may see a PRODUCT(RED) version of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, too, which could be the color Apple chooses to release in the spring of 2024.
iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max colors
If you’re waiting patiently for the iPhone 15 Pro max release date, you might be wondering what colors will be available. Apple tends to pick four, more muted color options for its high-end devices, with Deep Purple, Gold, Silver, and Space Black being last year’s colors of choice.
We now know that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will feature a titanium frame this time around as opposed to stainless steel, which has prompted Apple to experiment with new color combinations.
These are the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max colors announced today:
iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max owners may be disappointed to see there isn’t a Gold or Deep Purple color option in this year’s lineup. This is likely because these two colors will clash with the new titanium frame, with Dark Blue being the only real notable color choice for iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max users to choose from.
