As with all previous iPhone launches, the iPhone 15 series will be launched in September 2023. According to reports, Apple will launch four different iPhone models this year. Among the two affordable variants, the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus are expected to be the two most affordable, and the 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max are expected to be the two most expensive.

In spite of reports about the iPhone 15 Pro series featuring design changes, leaked CAD renders indicate that not much will change from the current iPhone 14 series. A new report from 9to5Mac citing 3D artist Ian Zelbo has revealed the designs of the vanilla iPhone 15 variant along with the recently leaked CAD renders. Here are the iPhone 15 CAD images, specifications, and other details we know so far.

iPhone 15 Series Renders:

Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 will be the cheapest of the new iPhones coming in September. New CAD images of the upcoming 2023 iPhone have leaked online. According to 9to5Mac, the biggest change on the upcoming iPhone is the bottom panel. Instead of Apple’s proprietary Lightning Port, Apple will now use a USB Type-C port. Despite EU law mandating standard USB Type-C ports for phones and many other electronic items, Apple confirmed that it will comply. It has been reported that Apple will not allow all USB Type-C cables to work with the iPhone, but just those that are MFI-certified.

Similarly to the previous iPhone 15 Pro renders, the camera bump on the back is expected to be thicker. Apple might introduce the 15 Pro with larger camera sensors even though the device is likely to have a 48MP triple-camera setup. Additionally, there is a LiDAR sensor and an LED flash.

Unlike the vanilla variant, the volume rockers on the 15 Pro seem to be capacitive instead of mechanical. The upcoming iPhone Pro models may no longer have buttons, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. According to the new CAD images, the iPhone 15 will also feature Dynamic Island, which was introduced last year with the iPhone 14 Pro. Apparently, the Dynamic Island on the front will feature the same 48MP camera as last year.
