The iPhone 15 launch occasion is lower than two weeks away, however we already know nearly the whole lot there may be to learn about Apple’s new telephones. Current leaks have even spoiled the purported iPhone 15 retail packaging and wallpapers. Individually, the iPhone 15, Plus, Professional, and Professional Max colours leaked, matching earlier rumors.

The iPhone 15 colours leaked way back, however what these leaks didn’t say was simply how ugly the iPhone 15 colour palette is that this 12 months. We needed to look ahead to pictures of purported iPhone 15 dummy models to comprehend how dangerous these colour choices look. There’s at all times an opportunity the leaks are improper, and the colours look higher in actual life, however we’re not impressed if these are ultimate.

Regardless of the case, I’m proof against the iPhone 15’s colour choices, and it’s not as a result of there’s solely a really small probability I’ll improve from the iPhone 14 Professional this 12 months.

I mentioned this a number of occasions previously, but when colour is the primary precedence on your subsequent smartphone buy, you could be doing it improper. I additionally understand that I’m in all probability within the minority after I say the colour of my iPhone doesn’t matter.

Positive, I purchased a pink iPhone 6s again within the day as a result of I liked the look. And I received a purple iPhone 14 Professional final 12 months as a result of that was the best-looking colour for me. So sure, I do worth the looks of the iPhone. However solely up to a degree.

Whereas I preordered the iPhone 14 Professional as quickly because it was obtainable, I used to be near canceling it on launch day. There was no indication from the retailer that I’d obtain mine that Friday. Anticipating the supply of my purple iPhone to be delayed, I used to be able to cancel my order, stroll right into a retailer, and get no matter colour that they had, so long as it was a Professional mannequin with sufficient storage.

I’d have finished the identical with any earlier iPhone, together with the pink iPhone 6s.

The purpose I’m attempting to make is that, on the finish of the day, iPhone colour means little or no to me. So, whereas I don’t like Apple’s muted iPhone 15 and 15 Professional colour selections, as revealed within the photos above, I’m already proof against them. I don’t have a desire, and I’d get no matter iPhone mannequin is in inventory on the value level and storage tier I would like.

Thoughts you, I’m not even bringing carriers into the combination as a result of I get my telephones contract-free or unlocked. However that will even be a extra necessary issue than colour, assuming I’d get a fantastic trade-in deal from a cellular operator.

I point out carriers as they’re a part of the one state of affairs that leads to me upgrading to an iPhone 15 Professional this 12 months. If a service will get me that trade-in, I’ll get no matter iPhone 15 Professional mannequin they’ve in inventory on the time of the deal. If something, the duller colour palette would make my selection less complicated. There wouldn’t be an oz of remorse for not getting the colour I wished. That’s how easy it’s.

I don’t spend a lot time admiring the colour of my iPhone, particularly since, more often than not, I alter the iPhone’s look both with a case or a pores and skin. The identical applies to Android cellphone colours. Sure, they could be thrilling, however that’s a short-lived feeling.

Additionally, I don’t care about my Apple merchandise matching colours both. As a result of I pay related consideration to the colour choices of the Mac and Apple Watch. And I don’t care about iPad colours, both.

That’s to not say Apple couldn’t have finished a greater job with the iPhone 15 colour palette. I perceive the criticism from iPhone customers who care greater than me in regards to the colours.

Nonetheless, the iPhone 15 collection brings a lot greater upgrades than the colour choices. I’ve gone by all the nice upgrades coming to the iPhone collection earlier than:

The iPhone 15 design tweaks, the USB-C port, the digicam upgrades, and the efficiency are all price getting enthusiastic about, it doesn’t matter what the paint on the glass and steel seems to be like.
