The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are not bad phones, but not very interesting phones either. With the same design, screens, processor, and dual 12MP camera system as the iPhone 13, there’s little reason to upgrade from last year’s model. And judging by the latest leaks, there will be more of them this year.
Apple hasn’t redesigned the iPhone since the iPhone 12 brought back flat edges, and the latest round of iPhone 15 rumors shows a phone that will continue that trend. Based on a couple of “exclusive” leaks (via Macrumors) and renders (via 9to5Mac), the iPhone 15 looks a lot like the iPhone 14 with the same shape and dual camera setup. The only visible changes are a slight curve to the edges, which should be a bit more comfortable to hold.
Curiously, 9to5Mac seems to think that the screen of the smaller iPhone 15 will increase to 6.2 inches, which will be the first new screen size since Apple introduced the 6.1-inch iPhone 11. This is the first time we’ve heard this rumor, and our own iPhone 9to5Mac The 15 Pro leak doesn’t indicate it will have a bigger screen. Both leaks show noticeably smaller bezels, which would allow Apple to increase screen size without increasing the size of the phone.
The latest leaks also confirm that Dynamic Island, an important iPhone 14 Pro feature that already inspires Android copycats, will make its way to the rest of the iPhone 15 lineup. And of course, the Lightning port has been replaced with a USB-C port.
But even if the screen is a little bigger, it looks like the Pro models will be buying, especially the iPhone 15 Ultra, which is rumored to have a lot of upgrades, including an A17 processor, a periscope zoom lens, a titanium body, and capacitive buttons.
