After a long wait, we finally know what the new iPhone 15 Pro will look like. The media 9To5Mac has obtained exclusive renders, based on a CAD model owned by a case manufacturer and recreated by 3D artist Ian Zelbo. These images show the changes that have been talked about for months in the iPhone 15 Pro, which is scheduled for release later this year.
The CAD files on which these renders are based are delivered by Apple itself to the Asian factories so that they can manufacture the future casings that accompany them in time. The model in question comes from a factory located in China, which was also the first to receive it. These files must be very precise in terms of design, so that the accessories can be manufactured correctly.
What will the iPhone 15 Pro look like?
From what we see in the images, three of the rumored changes are confirmed: no lightning port, thinner bezels and a larger camera module (if possible). The abandonment of lightning in favor of USB-C is a big step for the Apple terminal, which would have been forced to comply with the new European legislation. However, the bitten apple company intends to limit the use of unofficial cables thanks to the inclusion of an authenticator chip.
The camera also stands out much more than in other years’ handsets, indicating that Apple may have made a big leap in terms of sensors and lenses. The camera layout has not changed and maintains the three lenses along with the LiDAR scanner. Given what we have seen, we are confident that we will see a great improvement in the photographic section.
Another major change is the curvature of the edges. While Samsung opts for a straighter design, Apple wants to return to curves. Now, the glass makes a more fluid transition to the frame and is reminiscent of the MacBook Pro design. This slight change could make the iPhone become much more comfortable to hold in the hand.
In addition, we also see that the bezels are much thinner, which at first glance gives it a more modern touch. What has not changed one iota have been the buttons, which were rumored to disappear to be replaced by haptic zones. Still, we must not forget that these are unofficial renders and may not end up reflecting the final product.
