Apple announced that the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, Apple Watch Series 9, Apple Watch Ultra 2, Apple Watch SE and AirPods Pro have arrived in stores worldwide. The products were first announced a few weeks ago at an Apple event in September.
Now that the devices are in Apple’s physical stores, customers can try them on or buy them. If you need help choosing the right devices, Apple experts will be in store to help. Other services include trading in old devices, finding a carrier quote and activating devices.
Highlighting the new features of the iPhone models, Apple wrote:
“The iPhone 15 series features a new design with a durable, tinted glass back and a new contoured edge, and with an aerospace-grade titanium design that’s strong yet lightweight, iPhone 15 Pro delivers Apple’s lightest Pro models ever and opens up the following – Class performance and mobile gaming with A17 Pro.
The camera systems across the line take portrait photography to the next level with improvements in low-light performance, and a new 5x telephoto camera—available exclusively on iPhone 15 Pro Max—is great for close-ups, wildlife photos, and more. ‘
For anyone who has tested the iPhone Pro models, today it was reported that the titanium sometimes changes color but this can be fixed with a quick cleaning. If you think it might be too annoying for you, then choosing a different model might be a necessity.
The new iPhone 15 starts at $799 and then goes up in price based on how much storage you want. All other iPhone models will set you back even more.

In discussing the new watches, Apple said:
Apple Watch Series 9 is stronger than ever with the new S9 SiP, and together with the new Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Ultra 2 achieve a significant environmental milestone towards Apple 2030: Apple’s plan to be carbon neutral in all its businesses, manufacturing, supply chain and the life cycle of the product until 2030.
For the first time, customers can choose a carbon neutral option of any Apple Watch. All models feature a groundbreaking new double-tap gesture, and the Ultra 2 has the same battery life of 36 hours of regular use and 72 hours of low-power mode.’
The release of the new devices comes just days after Apple released iOS 17, watchOS 10 and iPadOS 17. Unless you’re desperate for an upgrade, it’s fine to keep your existing iPhone as they usually get about five years or more of software updates.
