Tips that the iPhone 15 Pro models could use a titanium frame and sport more rounded edges, seem to have withered, with recent renders hinting at Apple continuing with the flat edges seen on the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Solid-state buttons, which were touted as a way to make the next-gen Pro iPhone more durable and use more advanced haptics, have now been shot down.
Solid-state buttons, which were touted as a way to make the next-gen Pro iPhone more durable and potentially use more advanced haptics, have now been shot down, with tipsters suggesting they’ll be a feature of the iPhone 16. Separately, I’m not convinced there’s much need for a rumored action button or it’s utility on a phone.
Murmurings of thinner display bezels for the iPhone 15 Pro models sound good, but are hardly the biggest upgrade. And the rumored A17 Bionic will likely deliver masses of smartphone performance. Yet the A15 Bionic in the iPhone 13 Pro doesn’t struggle with anything I throw at it, so a more powerful chip gets a big ‘meh’ from me.
USB-C connectivity looks like it’s coming for all iPhone 15 models. But I, and others at Tom’s Guide, feel this should have happened years ago, so it’s more a retrofit than an innovative addition.
