More details have emerged about what we can expect from the iPhone 15 coming later this year: thinner bezels on the two Pro models, and curved edges on all four phones, for an Apple Watch-like aesthetic.
This comes from an experienced Apple company shrimp (Opens in a new tab) (via MacRumors (Opens in a new tab)), who said the display sizes on all four phones will remain the same as they were last year. Moreover, Dynamic Island will be making its way to every model as well.
Hint assures that the screens will remain flat — only the edges that curve in the rest of the phone’s casing. However, there will apparently not be a major change in the design of the selfie camera phone module.
Well, I have a result for the iPhone 15 series screen design. – All iPhone 15 series will have the same display sizes as the iPhone 14 series – The Pro 15 will have thinner bezels with curved edges, the screen is still flat, but the edges are just a curveJanuary 21, 2023
Take a look at the iPhone 14 and you’ll see that the bezels are already impressively thin, so it’ll be interesting to see exactly how much they drop when it comes to the two more expensive phones in the range.
We’re also eager to see those curved edges, too. Apple will likely go back to a more curved design overall, something similar to what we saw with the iPhone 11. This wouldn’t be the first time the iPhone’s display has deviated from the edges.
The source here calls the most expensive model the “iPhone 15 Pro Max (aka Ultra),” admitting that we’re still not sure what Apple will call this phone: We’ve been hearing several iPhone 15 Ultra rumors in recent weeks.
Analysis: The prettiest iPhone yet?
The same leaker who provided this new info also says that the iPhone 15 Pro Max (or iPhone 15 Ultra) looks “very nice” — and from the description we can see how these phones will have a lot of visual appeal.
With the thinnest bezels on the Pro models, almost all of the screen will be occupied by actual pixels. Add in the curved effect right at the edges, and we get the impression that the iPhone 15 lineup might actually be very easy on the eyes.
While those thin bezels aren’t coming to the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, according to rumors, these phones will curve slightly at the edges. The angular look is out, and the more rounded look seems to be back in.
Given the experience and expertise of Apple’s design team, we’re now very much looking forward to seeing what the iPhone 15 series delivers in terms of what it looks like in real life — and it’s been a few years since we’ve been able to say that.
