iPhone 15 – now it changes

September is usually the time for new iPhone models.

We’re just a few weeks away from Apple’s big launch of the year, and the rumors are about to gather steam.

The name is said to be iPhone 15. As with last year, four new models will be released, the regular iPhone 15 and the larger iPhone 15 Max, as well as the two pro models iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.

The web is boiling

Rounded at the edges

Since the launch of the iPhone X in 2017, Apple has had a long-term goal of making the mobile phone frameless. With each new release since then, they’ve steadily peeled back more of the bezel around the screen.

And this year they are one step away from that goal, and according to knowledgeable journalist Mark Gorman i bloomberg This happens in two ways:

First, the so-called “bus pocket” (the black field at the top of the screen) on the standard iPhone 15 models will be replaced in favor of the new dynamic island, first introduced with the iPhone 14 Pro models.

Second, they will use a new screen technology on the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max that allows them to shrink the bezels around the screens even further (from 2.2 to 1.5 mm).

Speaking of framework, according to 9to5Mac The Pro models will also be equipped with a titanium frame instead of aluminum. This will reduce weight and make the surface shinier. The edges are also said to be more rounded at the edges than before.

Replaces the button

according to MacRumors It can be anything from launching shortcuts you’ve created, launching the camera, to turning on the flash or activating silent mode.

From Lightning to USB-C

With the iPhone 15, it looks like Apple will finally replace the Lightning port with a USB-C port. This corresponds to the new rules of the European Union. The interest is according American Macworld Charging is faster and data transfer speeds are faster between your iPhone and your computer.
