The wait for Apple’s highly anticipated iPhone 15 Pro Max may be longer than expected as reports claim that the iPhone 15 Pro Max/Ultra will arrive 3-4 weeks later than the other models.
The Apple iPhone 15 series announcement was expected to take place on September 13, with pre-orders opening on September 15, and deliveries should commence seven days after that.

– Black / Midnight / Dark / Basalt
We should see at least some of these”
