More details have emerged about what we can expect from the iPhone 15, due out later this year: two Pro models have thinner bezels, and all four phones feature curved edges for an Apple Watch-like aesthetic.
This is from the experienced Apple Twitter Shrimp Apple Pro (opens in a new tab) (pass mike rumors (opens in a new tab)), who said the four phones will have the same display size as last year. What’s more, Dynamic Island will also be applied to all models.
The tipster stresses that the screen will remain flat – only the bezels will curve into the rest of the phone’s casing. However, the design of the selfie camera unit will apparently not change much.
Well, I have the display design results for the iPhone 15 series. – All the iPhone 15 series will have the same display size as the iPhone 14 series – The pro 15 will have thinner bezels and curved edges, the display will still be flat, only the bezels will be curvedJanuary 21, 2023
Looking at the iPhone 14, you can see that the bezels are already very thin, so it will be interesting to see how much they reduce when it comes to the two more expensive phones in the series.
We’d love to see those curved bezels, too. Apple may return to an overall more curved design like we saw with the iPhone 11. This isn’t the first time an iPhone screen has tapered around the edges.
Sources here call the most expensive model the “iPhone 15 Pro Max (aka Ultra),” acknowledging that we’re still not sure what Apple will call the phone: We’ve heard several iPhone 15 Ultra rumors in recent weeks.
Analysis: Is the most beautiful iPhone yet?
The leaker who provided this new information also said that the iPhone 15 Pro Max (or iPhone 15 Ultra) is apparently “very beautiful” – from the description we can see how these phones will have a lot of visual appeal.
Thanks to the thinner bezels on the Pro model, nearly all of the screen will be taken up by actual pixels. Coupled with the curved effect at the edges, our impression is that the iPhone 15 series is indeed very pleasing to the eye.
While these thinner bezels won’t be coming to the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, those phones will also have slightly curved edges, according to rumors. The angular look is out and the more rounded look is back.
Given the experience and expertise of Apple’s design team, we’re now very much looking forward to seeing what the iPhone 15 series has to offer in terms of how it actually looks — something we haven’t been able to say for a few years now.
