It’s been a few months since Apple debuted the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro series but rumors and leaks about the next-generation iPhone 15 lineup have already begun to circulate online.
According to the most recent reports, the future Apple iPhone 15 series will include a new design language, which many customers have been anticipating because the business hasn’t updated the look of the phone in quite some time.
According to the source, the Apple iPhone 15 range will be modified to have a rounder body rather than the flat appearance it presently has. It is unknown exactly how the design will look, although it is speculated that the device would feature a rounded back rather than a square back.
A render of the phone reveals a flat screen and flat edge on the front, while the phone’s edges are rounded on the rear, making it easier and more comfortable to grasp. However, these are simply concept renders and do not represent the final product. It’s also worth noting that this isn’t the first time Apple has utilized a rounded shape for iPhone models, since the company employed a similar design for the iPhone 5C. If you can remember, Apple recently changed the design of its laptops to have a flat, sharp-edged top and round edges on the bottom. With the iPhone 15, the computer industry is now adopting this strategy.
According to reports, the upcoming iPhone models will have a titanium body to make the handsets lighter. However, we expect to see the shift mainly in the Pro variants of smartphones, with the basic models continuing to use aluminum.
Aside from design and material modifications for the iPhone 15 series, a few more changes are predicted for the incoming lineup. The phones will be powered by a new processor made using a 3nm technology, and they will sport a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port.
If Apple wants to continue selling mobile phones in Europe, it must switch to USB Type-C. Apple is currently under regulatory pressure in countries and regions like Europe and India, thus the company may transition to USB-C ports. However, for Europe, it will only support the iPhone 16 before switching. Apple, on the other hand, does not appear to be waiting for the iPhone 16. The USB Type-C port will most likely be introduced for the first time on an iPhone with the iPhone 15 series.
According to Nikkei, Apple will use Sony’s most recent “state-of-the-art” camera sensor for the next iPhone 15 series smartphones. When compared to ordinary sensors, it will quadruple the saturation signal in each pixel. This allows the sensor to capture more light, reducing underexposure and overexposure for improved performance.
Sony is believed to be adopting semiconductor architecture that separates photodiodes and transistors, allowing for more photodiodes. Given that Apple has been attempting to differentiate between non-Pro and Pro variants of the phones, it is unclear whether the additional camera sensors will be limited to the iPhone 15 Pro models or extend to the full lineup.
If rumors and leaks are to be true, the new Apple iPhone 15 series will be a significant upgrade over current-generation models.
The phones will also be powered by an improved Apple A17 Bionic chipset, which may be made using a 3nm technology. They may also include improved zoom technology, as Apple is said to be working on a periscope telephoto lens to boost optical zoom capabilities, perhaps allowing for 10x optical zoom on the future iPhones.
According to rumors, Apple will replace physical buttons with a Taptic Engine that simulates volume and power buttons. However, according to the story, this capability will only be available in Pro models. According to MacRumors, the iPhone 15 Pro, expected to be released in September next year, will lack physical volume and power buttons.
