iPhone 15 Pro: A closer look at the new design, features, and upgrades

The anticipation for the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro is growing, with leaks and rumors providing a glimpse into what we can expect from Apple’s latest flagship device. 9to5Mac recently shared exclusive details on the design, and further information has been gathered from MFi accessory makers and other sources, providing a more comprehensive look at the device.

Exciting new upgrades coming to this year’s iPhone 15 Pro

One of the most significant changes to the iPhone 15 Pro is an all-new titanium casing with a rounder-edged design. This update should make the device more comfortable to hold, addressing a common complaint among iPhone users regarding the current model’s sharp edges.

The camera system is also set to receive a significant upgrade, with the camera bump thicker, and the lenses protruding more than double that of the iPhone 14 Pro. Rumors suggest that the iPhone 15 Pro will feature an all-new sensor technology that captures more light and reduces overexposure or underexposure in certain settings. Interestingly, the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s CAD files show a smaller camera protrusion, which could be due to the periscope camera rumored to come exclusively in the larger Pro Max model.

Another significant change is the introduction of USB-C to all iPhone 15 models. The leaked imagery of a prototype device suggests the USB-C port has a unique metal surround with a ribbed texture. The fastest charging will be limited to USB-C cables certified by Apple, as is typical for the brand.

Haptic volume and mute buttons will replace traditional buttons and the mute switch. The solid-state haptic buttons will emulate a button press, with two new haptic engines dedicated explicitly to this function. According to the latest information, the mute switch will also receive the haptic treatment and function as a push button, although it remains unclear how this new input will work in the software.

The bezels will be smaller, with the iPhone 15 Pro’s bezels measuring a mere 1.55mm. The front and back glass will feature a subtle curvature of the edges, transitioning seamlessly into the titanium frame of the device. Additionally, the iPhone 15 Pro will come in an all-new deep red color, replacing Deep Purple.

Finally, the dimensions of the iPhone 15 Pro will be slightly smaller than the iPhone 14 Pro due to the smaller bezels and the same overall screen size. The phone will measure 70.46mm by 146.47mm with a thickness of 8.24mm, while the iPhone 14 Pro is slightly larger at 71.45mm by 147.46mm with a thickness of 7.84mm.

Overall, the iPhone 15 Pro is set to be a significant upgrade for Apple’s flagship device. With an all-new titanium frame, USB-C, camera upgrades, and haptic buttons, it’s sure to be a popular choice among iPhone users. While nothing is confirmed until Apple unveils the device, these leaks provide an accurate look at what we can expect later this year.
