Not long ago, we heard about some exciting design changes that might be coming in iPhone 15 Line, chief among those being curved edgesHowever, it now appears that this change is far from set in stone.
That’s not to say the previous leak was false, but according to LeaksApplePro — a leaker with a respectable track record — he spoke to Forbes (Opens in a new tab)However, the move to curved edges is under “strong consideration” but has yet to be decided upon.
Forbes notes that new iPhone design is usually out by now, so this uncertainty is odd, but it could be due to the current uncertainty within Apple’s supply chain, which could make changing the design more difficult than usual.
In other words, the curved edges could be a change that Apple wants, but it can be deceiving. However, there seems to be at least a good chance that this change will happen.
LeaksApplePro also had some comments on the recent claim that some or all iPhone 15 series models will be coated with titanium.
They made it clear that only the sides use titanium — which was pretty much expected anyway, since wireless charging wouldn’t work through a metal back. In fact, the back of the glass will apparently remain.
Of course, we’re still taking all of this with a pinch of salt since the iPhone 15 line probably won’t land until September.
The Analysis: Claims believable, but don’t count on every model getting titanium
All of the above leaks seem believable to us, but in the case of Titanium it is likely that only the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra Which we think you will, as it is a much more expensive material than aluminum iPhone 14 or stainless steel iPhone 14 Pro.
At least one source specifically said that only higher-end models would get titanium anyway, but other sources were less specific, so it’s worth clarifying.
As for the curved sides, the consensus so far seems to be that every iPhone 15 model will have them — if any, that’s pretty reliable.
Apple could do with updating the design a bit, especially on the base models, which haven’t seen any real changes this year, and unlike the change in materials, this probably won’t increase the cost, it’ll just help the upcoming phones stand out more among the crowd. The best phones.
