- The design of the iPhone 15 Pro will have a titanium casing with rounded edges and a new deep red color.
- The iPhone 15 Pro camera will be one of the main improvements, with a significant increase in the size of the lenses and the possible addition of completely new sensor technology.
- The iPhone 15 Pro is expected to feature a USB-C port, which would allow for faster charging and greater compatibility with other devices.
Last month, 9to5Mac exclusively shared basic CAD images of the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro design. Since then, they’ve collected more exclusive details from MFi accessory makers, new detailed CADs obtained by 9to5Mac’s Max Weinbach, and other sources. All of this information has been corroborated by multiple sources, and is believed to be the best looking iPhone 15 Pro has yet.
Titanium case and bigger cameras
The biggest change to the iPhone 15 Pro is an all-new titanium case with rounded edges. The rounded edges should be a noticeable improvement in the hand, as many users have complained about the sharp edges of the current iPhone. In addition to the new titanium frame, Apple is once again increasing the size of the iPhone 15 Pro’s cameras. The camera bump is thicker, but the most noticeable change comes with the protruding lenses. CAD files show that the individual lens bump has more than doubled over the huge cameras on the iPhone 14 Pro.
All-new periscope camera and sensor technology
The iPhone 15 Pro Max has a smaller camera bump, which could be due to a periscope camera rumored to be arriving this year exclusively on the larger Pro Max model. This would mean that the iPhone 15 Pro will have a larger camera than the iPhone 15 Pro Max. Rumor has it that the iPhone 15 Pro will feature all-new sensor technology that will “capture more light and reduce overexposure or underexposure at certain settings.”
USB-C, haptic buttons and new colors
USB-C is rumored to be coming to all iPhone 15 models. The iPhone 15 Pro is also expected to feature solid-state haptic and mute buttons. The mute switch will also get the haptic treatment and will instead function as a push button. Also, the iPhone 15 Pro is expected to come in an all-new Deep Red color, which will replace Deep Purple.
Smaller bezels and smaller size
The iPhone 15 Pro will continue to reduce bezels this year, with the bezels measuring just 1.55mm. Additionally, both the front and back glass feature a subtle curvature of the edges, seamlessly transitioning into the device’s titanium frame. Due to the smaller bezels and the same overall screen size, the iPhone 15 Pro will be slightly smaller than the iPhone 14 Pro.
The iPhone 15 Pro is gearing up to be a significant upgrade, and with an all-new titanium frame, USB-C, and camera upgrades, it’s sure to be popular. It’s still early days and nothing is confirmed until Apple reveals the device on stage; however, this gives us an accurate view of what we can expect from Apple later this year.
New improvements and features
In addition to the design changes, the iPhone 15 Pro is expected to have significant new features and improvements. Rumors suggest that the device will feature brand new sensor technology that will improve image quality by “capturing more light and reducing overexposure or underexposure at certain settings.” It is also speculated that Apple will eventually introduce the USB-C port on all iPhone 15 models, featuring a ribbed textured single port design.
Goodbye buttons and mute switch
The iPhone 15 Pro will feature solid-state haptic and mute buttons. The buttons will be replaced by two new dedicated haptic motors that will mimic the feeling of pressing a button. Additionally, the mute switch will also get the haptic treatment, and instead of a switch, it will function as a push button. It remains to be seen how Apple will integrate this new feature into the software.
Due to reduced bezels and rounder edges, iPhone 15 Pro will be slightly smaller than its predecessor, iPhone 14 Pro. The size of the device will be 70.46mm x 146.47mm with a thickness of 8.24mm, while the iPhone 14 Pro is slightly larger at 71.45mm x 147.46mm and 7.84mm thick.
While all of this information is the result of rumors and leaks, the information is believed to be accurate and may give consumers an idea of what to expect from the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro. With a refreshed design and new features and enhancements, iPhone 15 Pro will be a significant upgrade. However, we will have to wait until Apple officially reveals the device on stage to confirm the details.
