Apple is expected to announce its upcoming iPhone 15 lineup in September 2023. However, this year’s Apple flagship models got leaked quite earlier before the launch. A few days before, the CAD renders of the entire series were revealed. Even the rumors have also revealed the new highlights of the whole series.
This morning, the live image of the entire iPhone 15 series’ glass panels got revealed by a Weibo blogger (@Tech Meow). In the photo, the first glass panel is of the standard iPhone 15; the second is of the Pro model, and the last belongs to the iPhone 15 Pro Max (the high-end version of the entire series).
As said by the blogger, the width of the latter two borders is further narrowed to 1.5mm (previously reported by Ice Universe), and all four sides are equal in width.
In addition, the blogger also mentioned that the standard models (including the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus) would still be limited to a 60Hz refresh rate display and lack the AOD (Always-On Display) feature.
However, the glass panel image has revealed that Apple is also going with Dynamic Island display on its standard models this year. Previously, it was also reported that Apple might stick to the Apple A16 Bionic chipset on its standard models while the Pro models would feature the Apple A17 chipset.
Rumors also suggested that this year, Apple’s Pro models would feature a titanium alloy frame for the first time instead of stainless steel (used in iPhone 12 Pro and onward Pro models). Moreover, the physical buttons (volume and lock buttons) will be replaced by virtual buttons supporting Haptic Touch, just like the 3D Home Button (in iPhone 7 and later Touch ID-supported iPhone models).
The new Apple iPhone 15 series is expected to be released in September this year.
