The latest iPhone 15 Pro renders are in and this time they showcase a curvier approach for the future Apple flagship. The device is expected to debut with the iPhone 15 Pro Max (or Ultra) in the fall, probably in September. We have CAD-based renders, sourced by the guys of 9to5mac.
Usually CAD files of this sort are sent by Apple to accessory makers in Asia ahead of new product launches. These CAD files come from a Chinese case maker, apparently. What we see here is a curvier iPhone compared to the previous few blocky models. The curve manifests in the sides of the screen, but also the fame. The USB-C port is also here, finally, after some pressure from the European Union.
The new design with curves is supposed to make the phone easier to hold and wield. The camera bump has grown once again, even compared to the one on the iPhone 14 Pro, which may mean we’re in for a periscope camera, or simply just some improvements. Bigger sensors are likely. The arrangement of the 3 cameras and LiDAR scanner are similar to what we had last year.
Volume buttons aren’t physical anymore, apparently, but rather capacitive ones. The mute button also gets a redesign, being smaller and more rounded. The screen size and resolution are similar to the 14 Pro, but the panel has slimmer bezels, so overall the device will have a smaller footprint. The Dynamic Island stays unchanged. So, what do you make of this design?
