Rounded edges, titanium construction, Type-C port, and more

Apple iPhone 15 leaks are making the rounds just two months after the launch of the iPhone 14 series. Tipster ShrimpApplePro (who earlier speculated about the Dynamic Island on the iPhone 14 Pro) recently claimed that the iPhone 15 series will get a design overhaul, which has been long overdue since The current flat edge design has been going on since the iPhone 12 series. Along with the rounded edges, all iPhone 15 models are rumored to be getting a Dynamic Island display and more.

Here’s a quick rundown of the iPhone 15 series rumors that have surfaced online so far.

iPhone 15 may feature curved edges

It is said that the design of the iPhone 15 will include rounded edges on the rear glass panel instead of the flat design that we are used to seeing currently. Apple could be inspired by the iPhone 5C this time around. PhoneArena has provided a render (shown above) that depicts what the iPhone 15 could look like if it were round.

It’s as if Apple is going back to its roots for design inspiration for its upcoming iPhones. First, there was the iPhone 4 inspiration for the iPhone 12 and above range. Now, early rumors point to a possible iPhone 5C-like appearance for next year’s models.

Titanium construction

Rumors also suggest that the upcoming iPhone 15 (probably Pro models only) may come with a titanium body. This change should make the Pro models lighter compared to the stainless steel iPhones. This, along with the rounded edges, will make the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max easier to hold.

Dynamic Island was the biggest change to the iPhone 14 Pro. This is an interactive space on the screen that replaces the typical score. Dynamic Island automatically changes its look based on various notifications such as battery charge indicator, music, calls, and more. However, this feature was limited to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Now, recent reports have indicated that all iPhone 15 models will get Dynamic Island.

If true, this would be the biggest change for entry-level iPhones since there have been complaints from all angles that the design hasn’t changed much over the years.

The iPhone 15 series may finally adopt a USB Type-C port. Apple has faced legal battles in various parts of the world to remove the adapters from the box and offer the Lighting port instead of the more common USB-C port, forcing customers to purchase separate adapters for each electronic device. With many countries, including India, looking to adopt USB-C as the standard port for smartphones, Apple will have to switch to USB-C on future iPhones.
