After months of rumours and speculation, Apple has finally announced its new iPhones for 2023 – namely the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, as well as the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max – and they’re now available to buy.
As with any new iPhone launch, the new colours we can expect are as anticipated as any new features, and now we have them confirmed – and even been hands on with them. We’ll be taking a look at the iPhone 15 Pro models here, but if it is the regular models you are interested, in then take a look at our separate feature on the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus colours.
If you cast your mind back to 2022, the iPhone 14 Pro models launched in Space Black, Deep Purple, Silver and Gold, but for 2023, Apple is taking a much more muted approach with the iPhone 15 Pro. Keep reading to find out your choices for this year.
What colours will the iPhone 15 Pro models come in?
Whether you pick the iPhone 15 Pro or the iPhone 15 Pro Max, you will be able to choose from the same colours. The iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max all move to a titanium frame, instead of stainless steel, and the colour names all give a nod to this change, with a choice of Black Titanium, White Titanium, Blue Titanium, and Natural Titanium finishes. We’ve got our hands on them for some first impressions.
We had expected the Black model of the iPhone 15 Pro to be called Space Black like the iPhone 14 Pro, so this more literal naming convention is quite a departure. However, there’s not a massive change in the look of it – with a deep, flat matte-black finish complete with shinier edges.
The blue colour is the boldest colour in the iPhone 15 Pro line-up, but it’s still quite reserved compared to something like last year’s Deep Purple – or the whole iPhone 15 range for that matter. It’s not dissimilar to the Midnight Blue from the MacBook range, but not quite as dark – retaining some of its deep blue colour in the light.
Silver is a colour that has long been a colour offered on iPhones, with that resulting in silver edges and a white complementing back panel. In the iPhone 15 Pro, White Titanium calls a spade a spade and says it how it is – a matte-white phone on the back with silvery edges.
If you were a gold fan, then Natural Titanium is your closest option in the iPhone 15 Pro – but be aware this is a much more muted take on the colour than you might be used to. There’s still a golden hue to it, but – as its name would suggest – this is more natural and earthy, verging on the side of sandy rather than a bright finish.
