A new set of renders of the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro have surfaced on the internet, giving us a glimpse of what Apple’s next-generation flagship smartphone might look like. The renders, which were created by Ian Zelbo based on an early CAD model obtained by 9to5Mac, show a significant design overhaul for the iPhone 15 Pro, with several notable changes. One of them is the adoption of a USB-C port for charging and data transfer, replacing the Lightning port that has been used since the iPhone 5. This would make the iPhone 15 Pro compatible with a wider range of accessories and devices, as well as faster charging speeds.
Another change is the curvature of the edges of both the glass and metal frame of the iPhone 15 Pro. The renders depict a more rounded design for the phone, similar to what we have seen on some recent MacBooks and iPads. This could make the phone more ergonomic and less likely to register accidental touches on the screen. Speaking of which, the screen size and resolution are expected to remain unchanged from the iPhone 14 Pro, at 6.1 inches and 1170 x 2532 pixels respectively. However, thanks to thinner bezels around it, the overall dimensions of the phone could be slightly smaller.
The notch at the top of the screen also appears to be unchanged in size from its predecessor, housing Face ID sensors and a selfie camera. The rear camera module also looks similar to that of the iPhone 14 Pro, with three lenses arranged in a triangular pattern along with an LED flash and a LiDAR scanner. The camera specifications are not known yet, but we can expect some improvements in performance and features.
The iPhone 15 Pro is rumored to launch this fall alongside three other models: iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Max, and iPhone 15 mini. The renders are based on an early CAD model and may not reflect the final design or features of the phone. Do you think this design is better than previous iPhones?
