iPhone 15 leaks have already spoiled most of Apple’s in-house secrets and techniques, and now we now have our greatest look but on the telephones’ largest design modifications.
MacRumors has attained dummy fashions of all the vary — iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Professional and iPhone 15 Professional Max — and whereas the positioning doesn’t reveal its supply, I can affirm it’s to be trusted. So what are the massive takeaways?
Essentially the most impactful is among the more durable ones to identify: USB-C. The brand new port is well mistaken for Lightning, which it replaces, however the giveaway is it’s notably wider, and the dummy fashions present USB-C is coming to all 4 iPhone 15 fashions. iPhone 15 Professional fashions are anticipated to have sooner (presumably locked down) knowledge speeds, which can get the corporate in hassle with the EU.
Much less more likely to cut up opinion is the brand new Motion button. According to leaks, the dummy fashions present it is just coming to iPhone 15 Professional fashions. It will likely be a solid-state, programmable button that replaces the bodily mute swap. Primarily based on early CAD leaks, Apple initially needed to switch the quantity buttons with a solid-state rocker as properly, however a number of sources said this was delayed, and the dummies present common quantity buttons on all 4 iPhone 15 fashions.
Apparently, the dummies present the iPhone 15 Professional Max digicam hump to be of comparable depth to the iPhone 15 Professional and the iPhone 14 Professional Max. Apple’s new flagship iPhone will get an unique periscope lens able to as much as 6x optical zoom, and a few feared this is able to add appreciable bulk to the cellphone. However periscope lenses are usually located sideways inside a smartphone, and the dummies strongly counsel that is the route Apple determined to take.
Final, the dummies showcase the softer edges of the iPhone 15 vary. iPhones have switched between mushy curves and arduous edges a number of occasions through the years, however iPhone 15 fashions seem to have discovered a midway choice with the clear traces of the sides intact, however the corners curved barely to make the telephones extra comfy to carry.
So what don’t we all know? Properly, the dummies can’t inform us something in regards to the internals of the iPhone 15 vary (the brand new A17 chip is anticipated to be Professional-only), their shows (the Dynamic Island is tipped to return to all fashions) or their supplies, with titanium rumored for Professional fashions.
Costs additionally stay a thriller, however with Apple broadly anticipated to extend costs for Professional fashions worldwide, not all remaining particulars are more likely to be excellent news.
