In September, the iPhone 15 Pro is expected to launch alongside the Pro Max and two other models. The first speculative renders of the upcoming phone appear already in mid-February. It’s CAD-based, so it’s rough around the edges, but it’s better than nothing.

To ensure their products are ready when the new iPhone becomes official, Apple sends these CAD files to accessory makers in Asia ahead of time. According to a Chinese case maker, the CAD files used to generate these renders were obtained first by them (pun intended).

iPhones will finally get USB-C ports this year, as has been rumored for a long time. The new design has a curvier frame, as well as glass that curves into the frame. It should make holding the phone much easier if this works out.

It’s likely that we’ll be in for further improvements in this space, including possibly bigger sensors since the camera bump on the back is thicker than that on the iPhone 14 Pro. Last year, the three cameras and the LiDAR scanner remain in the same position.

As rumored before, the volume buttons may not be actual buttons anymore, but capacitive ones. Also, the mute switch has been redesigned, becoming smaller and rounder. Despite its larger screen size and higher resolution, the iPhone 15 Pro is expected to be marginally smaller than its predecessor because of thinner bezels. There is still a Dynamic Island, and it looks the same as the one on the iPhone 14 Pro.

According to their source, these renders may not depict “all aspects of Apple’s final design”.
