That’s not to say the previous leak was wrong, but according to LeaksApplePro – a leaker with a respectable track record – speaking with Forbes (opens in a new tab)The move to curved edges is being “thought out” but has yet to be decided.
Forbes notes that the design of a new iPhone is usually finalized by now, so this uncertainty is odd, but could be due to current uncertainty in Apple’s supply chain, which This can make design changes harder than usual.
In other words, curved edges could be a change that Apple wants, but it could be a complicated one. However, there seems to be at least a good chance this change will happen.
LeaksApplePro also had some comments on the recent claim that some or all of the iPhone 15 series models will be coated with titanium.
They make it clear that it will only be titanium-based sides – which is largely expected anyway, as wireless charging won’t work through the metal back. Indeed, the back will obviously remain glass.
Of course, we’ll still disregard all of this with a pinch of salt as the iPhone 15 series probably won’t land until September.
Analysis: credible claims, but don’t believe every model gets titanium
The leaks above sound believable to us, but in the case of titanium it is probably only the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra that we thought would get it, because it’s a much more expensive material than our aluminum iPhone 14″ or stainless steel of iPhone 14 Pro.
At least one source has specifically said that only flagship models will have titanium anyway, but other sources are less specific, so it needs to be clear on that.
As for the curved edges, the consensus so far seems to be that every iPhone 15 model will have them — if so, and that’s believable.
Apple could refresh the design a bit, especially on the base models, there aren’t any real changes this year, and unlike changes in materials, this probably won’t drive up the price. to be done, it only helps that upcoming handsets stand out more among the best phone.
