The Apple iPhone 15 Pro is expected to launch in September alongside the Pro Max/Ultra and two other models. Therefore, we are still more than half a year away from the start – time for the next highly speculative renderings of the upcoming Apple flagship. They’re based on CAD drawings, so they still look pretty synthetic, but still better than nothing.
Apple sends CAD files like these to accessory manufacturers in Asia prior to the launch of new products. This means that the right accessories are already available for purchase when the new Apple smartphones come onto the market. In this case, the CAD files on which the renderings are based come from a Chinese case manufacturer that appears to have had very early access.
What quickly catches the eye is the new USB-C port that Apple has to install due to the new EU guidelines. Then there’s the new design, which makes the frame a bit more curved and also seems to curve the glass into the frame. Should the new look reach the final devices, the iPhone 15 Pro should be much better in the hand and easier to hold.
The camera module on the back seems to have gotten thicker compared to the iPhone 14 Pro. That could mean that the cameras will get the rumored major update with potentially larger sensors. The arrangement of the three cameras and the LiDAR scanner within the camera island remains unchanged compared to the previous year.
iPhone 15 Pro with capacitive buttons
The volume buttons may no longer be real buttons, but switch to capacitive buttons. The mute button also gets a redesign and is smaller and rounder than before. The display size and resolution of the Apple iPhone 15 Pro will probably not change. However, the panel gets thinner bezels, so that the new model is slightly smaller overall. The Dynamic Island is still there and looks the same as the ones in the iPhone 14 Pro.
The renders may not reflect “all aspects of Apple’s final design,” according to the source. No daring thesis for February.
