Here are all the expected iPhone 15 design changes visualized

This September, we expect Apple to announce its latest set of four flagship phones, the iPhone 15 series. Of course, thanks to all kinds of leaks and rumors, we tend to learn a lot about highly anticipated phones like the iPhone 15 even sooner. that they go out, but their appearance usually attracts more attention than anything else.

In this regard, we want to share with you our interpretations of the design of the iPhone 15 through renderings based on all the information that the rumor has spread so far. Don’t forget that these are conceptual images only, and like the leaks they’re inspired by, they can’t serve as an actual representation of what the iPhone 15 models would actually look like once they’re released.

Thinner frames

Phone manufacturers have all chased the idea of ‚Äč‚Äčmaximizing the screen real estate of their phones by minimizing the thickness of all four bezels. Well, one of the biggest changes we expect to see on the iPhone 15 series, especially the Pro models, are slimmer bezels.

Now, none of the new iPhone models are said to feature a larger display than their predecessors, but the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max are said to have bezels as thin as 1.5mm. This would make Apple’s latest premium flagships as the two thinnest-bezeled phones ever.

The regular iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus may also have thinner bezels (although not as thin on the Pro models), but the chance of this design change with these two models is much less.

Rounded edges and new frames

There are those who love the super curved pebble-like look of the iPhone 11 and those who prefer the super sharp edges that started with the iPhone 12 until now. Well, Apple is rumored to be attempting to combine the best of both worlds with the iPhone 15 series.

More to the point, the side bezel would be more curved towards the back instead of being flat, while still keeping the sharp edge where the screen is. Another way to look at it is like the letter “J”, with the top being the display and the bottom being the back panel.

Presumably, this would be an effort to make the iPhone 15 series (all four models) easier to hold for extended periods of time (like when you’re in a TikTok infinite scroll loop) while still keeping the rectangular look quite modern.

Additionally, some leaks indicate that Apple has updated the frames for all iPhone 15 models, providing titanium ones for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, and stainless steel ones for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus.

Everyone gets a dynamic island

Dynamic Island was a major selling point for the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max last year, but this year there’s a good chance it won’t be exclusive to them. Yes, that means the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus should both have Dynamic Island and all the software quirks and features that come with it.
In essence, this means that we will finally see the death of the iconic notch that first appeared with the iPhone X in 2017.

Mark the day, iPhones have USB-C

Yep, it doesn’t matter why we’re finally getting an iPhone with USB-C, the fact is there’s a good chance the iPhone 15 series will be the first to mark the occasion. Now, this isn’t a visual change that would be too noticeable at first, but closer inspection by the keen eye of an enthusiast should be enough to reveal it.

For Pro models, the move to USB-C could also mean faster charging and transfer speeds. However, this update is said to be ruled out for the regular iPhone 15 and 15 Plus models, where the USB-C port would probably only contribute to a slightly different look.

Bye Mute Switch, hello Action Button

Adding to the handy design changes that only the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max could get is the new action button that is said to function similarly to the one on the Apple Watch Ultra. This new button would act as a replacement for the Mute switch we know and love on Apple’s iPhones.

As you might suspect, that means no more satisfying clicks as you slide the switch up and down, and no more red lines when you’ve muted your phone. In return, however, you get the ability to configure this new action button to do something completely different, allowing for more ways to customize how you use your iPhone than ever before.

The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, on the other hand, should keep the Mute switch for now.

Also, as a side note, while our renders show the iPhone 15 with the volume up and volume down keys combined into one, just like on some Android phones, there’s a chance that might not be the case. Some of the latest rumors suggest that Apple will stick to two separate volume buttons instead.

Larger camera bump on iPhone 15 Pro Max

Leaks say that this year we will finally see Apple add a periscope telephoto lens to its largest and most expensive model, the iPhone 15 Pro Max. At first you might think this means that there will now be four cameras on the back of the phone, but the leaks so far show us that the new periscope telephoto camera will simply replace the previous generation’s 3X zoom camera.

That means two things design-wise: a larger camera bump and a rectangular shape within the telephoto lens, rather than a circular one.

New colors

Colors are probably the easiest way to make a phone look new and fresh, yet strangely effective at the same time. We already have an article dedicated to iPhone 15 colors that you can check out for all the shades we talk about, but here’s the gist.
