New unconventional rumors on Twitter suggest that Apple may be considering a little but significant design change for the next iPhone 15 series.
According to well-known leaker ShrimpApplePro (@VNchocoTaco), the iPhone 15 might adopt a side frame that is curved toward the back rather than being flat like in the iPhone 12/iPhone 13/iPhone 14 generations.

This might match the iPhone 15 series with Apple’s most recent design innovations. Similar design cues have been used on the most recent MacBook Pro, including a side frame with a straight angle on one side and a minor bend on the other, like a “J.”
Is this really a new design or a recycle?
It’s interesting to note that the flat display and curved rear of the “plastic” iPhone 5c from almost ten years ago have comparable designs. Could this scenario reemerge, but with an even higher cost?
Remember that Apple frequently reverses its design choices, regardless of how well-liked they were initially. Apple has a long history of curved frame designs, which began with the iPhone 6 and culminated with the iPhone 11.
Despite the fact that the most recent iPhone design, with its industrial edges, appears to be beloved by all, this design is nothing new for Apple. The iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s, however, share a lot of the same adored design DNA that can be seen in Apple’s most recent iPhones.
Prior to then, Apple had experimented with industrial chamfered edges.
What if Apple combines flat and curved design
Combining the flat current super-premium appearance with the objectively superior ergonomics of a design with a slightly curved back combine the best of both worlds.Additionally, speculations say that Apple may opt to use titanium rather than stainless steel for the iPhone 15.
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus may adopt stainless steel frames, leveling-up from the aluminum iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, but only the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra may potentially adopt a titanium frame due to titanium’s super-premium status.
Given how invested Cupertino appears to be in MagSafe and the fact that MagSafe wouldn’t function properly with anything other than glass, we don’t anticipate Apple to hesitate to use glass backs on its upcoming iPhone models.
What else to expect on the next iPhone 15 series launch
As of now, we can anticipate the release of the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and an iPhone 15 Ultra in September 2023. All four of the future models are anticipated to feature the Dynamic Island punch-hole cutout, and it’s been said that ProMotion will be available on each model.
The most exciting new gadgets to anticipate are undoubtedly the iPhone 15 Ultra and iPhone 15 Pro, and according Apple speculations, both may replace the hardware volume and power buttons with capacitive ones, much like the iPhone 7 did when it replaced the hardware home button with a static one.
Presumably, all upcoming iPhone models will have USB Type-C connections at the bottom rather than Lightning ones.
