More details have emerged about what we can expect from the iPhone 15 coming later this year: slimmer 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 tipster ShrimpApplePro (opens in a new tab) (via MacRumors (opens in a new tab)), who says that the screen sizes on all four phones will remain the same as last year. In addition, Dynamic Island will also reach all models.
The tipster emphasizes that the displays will remain flat – only the bezels will curve into the rest of the phone’s case. However, apparently there won’t be much change to the design of the selfie camera phone unit.
Well, I have the result of the iPhone 15 series screen design. – all iPhone 15 series will have the same screen sizes as the iPhone 14 series – pro 15 will have thinner bezels with curved edges, although the screen remains being flat, only the bevels are curvedJanuary 21, 2023
The return of the curves
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’ll shrink when it comes to the two most expensive phones in the range. .
We’re also looking forward to seeing these curved bezels. It is possible that Apple will return to a more curved design in general, something like what we saw with the iPhone 11. It would not be the first time that an iPhone screen has narrowed at the edges.
The source here calls the more expensive model the “iPhone 15 Pro Max (aka Ultra)”, and acknowledges that we’re still not sure what Apple will call this phone – we’ve heard several iPhone 15 Ultra rumors in recent weeks.
Analysis: the most beautiful iPhone so far?
The same leaker who provided this new information also says that the iPhone 15 Pro Max (or iPhone 15 Ultra) is apparently “very beautiful”, and in the description we can see how these phones would have a lot of visual appeal.
With the thinner bezels on the Pro models, almost the entire screen will be taken up by actual pixels. Add in the curved effect right at the edges, and we have an impression that the iPhone 15 lineup could be very easy on the eyes.
While these slimmer bezels won’t make it to the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, rumor has it those phones will also curve slightly around the edges. The angular look is out, and it looks like the more rounded look is back.
Given the experience and insights of Apple’s design team, we’re now looking forward to seeing what the iPhone 15 series has to offer in terms of what it actually looks like, and it’s been a few years since we’ve been able to. say it.
