Given we are just a month out from the launch of iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max, many leaks are due to pour in. Though they aren’t always worth watching, a pretty intriguing one just found its way onto Twitter. A leak of the schematics shows the exact specifications of the next phone, complete with measurements.
With the suggestion of a new charging port, a slightly different mute button, and a thicker frame, the iPhone 15 Pro is shaping up to be an interesting addition to the Apple lineup.
Apple are making incremental changes
Taking to Twitter, Apple revealer and analyst Majin Bu shared a single image of potential iPhone 15 schematics: and it looks like there are some big changes. Of course, until the iPhone 15 Pro is actually released, we won’t know if these schematics are accurate — although Majin Bu has a solid track record, and these images seem to represent changes we’re already expecting, so there’s a good chance that this is close to what we’re going to get in a few weeks.
In the schematic, the specific sizes of many areas of the iPhone 15 are revealed.. Though it seems to be a very similar design to the iPhone 14 Pro, we notice a few key differences like the inclusion of the potential action button, replacing the mute button. You can spot this on the left hand side just above the volume buttons.
At the bottom, there is a slot — and it is not immediately obvious whether this is USB-C or Lightning. Given that Apple seems to be shifting all its devices to the reversible standard, it’s likely that this image represents the former, especially given the number of rumors that seem to point in a USB-C-shaped direction. It still has the camera lens layout of last year, as well as the dynamic island. The camera is 38 by 37.5, being a little wider and less tall than last year’s.
The depth of the phone is 8.24 mm – a little bigger than the 7.85mm of last year. Generally speaking, it’s a very similar phone to last year with minor changes – making it a little bigger in the hand but mostly unnoticeable. As well as this, the sides seem to be smoother, making it easier to fit into your pocket. This corroborates previous reports.
These schematics show where the future of the iPhone lies. With rounder edges, a change action button, and a slightly bigger size, we can expect a phone that is bigger and better but also easier to slip into your pocket or your hands. This bigger size is accompanied by a smoother feel, with slimmer bezels and less angular sides.
