There are some rumors that the iPhone 15 series will offer a more premium design. According to a report by 9to5Mac the backs may be curved and feature a titanium finish.
Dummy models also reportedly show a new action button, which will be solid-state and replace the physical mute switch. The volume buttons are likely to remain in their physical form.
Aside from an improved design, the iPhone 15 series is also expected to feature enhanced hardware and software security features. These include operating system enhancements, biometric authentication advancements and more rigorous app review processes. The Pro models are also expected to offer faster data transfer speeds via USB-C.
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple could upsell the larger 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Pro Max models with exclusive features that will differentiate them from the standard variants. One such rumor is that the Pro Max will have a periscoping variable zoom camera.
Aside from the new camera, a few notable rumors have emerged surrounding the iPhone 15’s design. CAD renders based on leaks suggest the device will adopt a Dynamic Island, smaller bezels and capacitive buttons, and a Lightning port that gets replaced with USB-C.
With Apple’s iPhone 15 range due to arrive this fall, rumors and leaks are already reaching a fever pitch. While we’ve heard a lot about USB-C and curvier edges, there’s one area where iPhone fans can expect something big: the cameras.
A number of reputable leakers have claimed that all iPhone 15 models will get Apple’s Dynamic Island. The interactive notch replacement is expected to enable apps to better adapt to the varying camera cutouts on Apple’s new phones.
The Pro Max model is also rumored to gain access to Sony’s state-of-the-art 48MP main camera sensor. This would allow for more light to be captured, which should give the iPhone 15 a much-needed boost in low-light performance.
Meanwhile, CAD files suggest that Apple will rearrange the formation of its rear triple-lens camera system. This is to make room for the periscope lens that’s rumored to arrive this year exclusively in the larger Pro Max model.

As you might have guessed, this allows the camera to take longer interval frames to capture better low-light shots. The iPhone 15’s Night mode also combines these shots into one single image that reduces motion to give your photos that stunning, silky sheen.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that all iPhone 15 models will feature a 48MP sensor – currently the preserve of the Pro range. That will make it easier for developers to adapt to the iPhone’s morphing camera cutout/display feature, Dynamic Island, though the iPhone 15 Pro Max could be able to offer exclusive features thanks to its rumored periscope zoom camera.
Another big change this year is the switch to USB-C on all models. This is likely to be a requirement of new European regulations on electronic waste, but it also gives Apple the chance to upgrade its iPhone’s design by offering a textured metal surround and a titanium frame. Several leaked dummy units show this, and MacRumors’ CAD-based images support it.
Apple’s Siri voice recognition system processes the user’s request, converts it into a data file and sends it to a server. Then it uses a variety of iphone 15 thuong flowcharts to respond with an appropriate response. It’s a pretty impressive piece of technology, but it does have its limitations. For example, it’s often unreliable in noisy environments and can be slow to launch an app. However, Siri is still useful for dictating notes and setting reminders, appointments, timers and alarms.
Respected display analyst Ross Young tipped Apple to add an always-on display with Dynamic Island to the iPhone 15 this year, but he’s not expecting a 120Hz or LTPO screen on standard models (via MacRumours). On the other hand, Ming-Chi Kuo believes that the Pro models will get a customizable “action button” like the one on the Apple Watch Ultra. This could replace the mute switch and be used for all sorts of things. We’ve seen CAD renders that show this button along with the new camera bump for the Pro and Max.
