Even though Apple’s upcoming iPhone models won’t be released for several months, rumours are beginning to catch up. The iPhone 15 Pro models’ solid-state volume and power buttons and the usage of titanium (rather than stainless steel) for the frames were also hinted at in earlier leaks. A recent rumour suggests that there will be other modifications to the display’s appearance, including thinner bezels and curved edges that will be arranged similarly to the layout of the previous Apple Watch models.
Several tweets from tipper @AppleShrimpPro provide information on the future iPhone 15 series’ screens. According to the source, the displays on the Apple iPhone 15 Pro versions will have curved edges and considerably reduced bezels. The displays below them are believed to be flat, therefore the curved edges only apply to the cover glass. Like the Apple Watch Series 7 and Series 8 models, where the display glass seamlessly melds into the rounded side frame, it will likely have the appearance of a curved edge display (or case). Additionally, it is rumoured that the iPhone 15 models will have flat displays and curved edge glass.
Additionally, according to the tip, the new models will have displays that are identical to those of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro versions that are already on the market. Additionally, it is anticipated that the basic iPhone 15 models will include Dynamic Island cuts, which had only been available on the ‘Pro’ models introduced last year. The Ceramic Shield treatment is available for all models, just like it was for the previous models. According to the source, Dynamic Island won’t receive any upgrades with the iPhone 15 models.
According to a recent rumour, Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro models are expected to receive the most updates this year. The upcoming iPhone 15 Pro models will have a new frame and solid-state buttons (with two additional Taptic Engines), according to TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s previous explanation in a note. However, he recently emphasised this point and provided additional details, stating that the components come from Cirrus Logic. He added that Apple might include the new solid-state buttons on other “high-end” models if users accept them. Similar to how Apple has been able to do with its trackpad on newer MacBook Air models, the additional Taptic motors are believed to imitate the impression of pressing down a button without really moving the button.
Apple is rumoured to increase the price of its iPhone 15 Pro models in 2024 in addition to all the anticipated enhancements. A recent report claims that the entry-level iPhone 15 Pro model starts at more than $1,000. The rationale, according to the source, is to widen the difference between the ordinary models and the Pro versions because the latter are anticipated to get more “Pro”-grade features, such as Dynamic Island and better resolution cameras, than the former. According to tradition, Apple will reportedly unveil its new iPhone lineup in September of this year.
