CALIFORNIA: Highly-anticipated launch of Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro Max could face a delay of about a month compared to other iPhone 15 models, according to a recent report.
According to 9to5Mac reports, Apple intended to release the iPhone 15 lineup in about three weeks, potentially around September 12 as previously speculated, with the shipments starting about ten days after.
However, the timeline applied to the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, and iPhone 15 Pro editions, while the Pro Max version might have experienced a shipping delay of three to four weeks.

Meanwhile, sources indicated that the delay stemmed from Sony, a camera parts supplier for Apple, facing challenges in delivering the image sensor required for the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s camera. Consequently, only the iPhone 15 Pro Max could have featured the anticipated periscope-based telephoto camera, setting it apart from the iPhone 15 Pro.
The situation aligned with Apple’s past practices. For instance, the iPhone 12 Pro Max boasted a more advanced camera compared to its smaller counterpart. In contrast, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max were quite similar, differing primarily in size and battery capacity.
Furthermore, Apple has a history of staggered model releases. In the previous year, the iPhone 14 Plus became available later than the standard iPhone 14.
Nonetheless, rumours of possible delays for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 models have occurred before as well. In July, a Bank of America analyst forecasted a potential few weeks’ delay in the iPhone 15’s launch, though the specific model was not mentioned in the note.
