Midway through February, and it appears that the first speculative renderings of the upcoming phone are already available
In order for accessory manufacturers in Asia to have their products ready when the new iPhone becomes official, Apple sends these CAD files to them in advance of the launches of new products. The CAD files on which these renders are based in this instance (pun intended – read on) are allegedly original to a Chinese case manufacturer, who obtained them first.
You can see that the USB-C port is finally coming to iPhones this year, as has been widely rumored. Then there is the new design, which appears to curve the glass into the frame and gives the frame a slight curvature. If this works out, holding the phone will be much simpler.
The back’s camera bump appears to be thicker than the one on the iPhone 14 Pro, which could indicate that there will be more advancements made in this area, possibly with larger sensors. Inside the camera island, the positioning of the three cameras and the LiDAR scanner is the same as it was the previous year.
According to previous rumors, the volume buttons might no longer be physical buttons and instead be capacitive ones. Additionally, the mute switch underwent a redesign, becoming more compact and rounded.
Its screen size and resolution are anticipated to be comparable to, if not identical to, those of its predecessor, but the panel will have thinner bezels, resulting in a slightly smaller overall size for the new device. Like the one in the iPhone 14 Pro, Dynamic Island is still present. Remember that these renderings might not depict “all aspects of Apple’s final design,” as stated by their source.
