Whether or not you’re thinking of buying the iPhone 14 during the holiday season, iPhone 15 leaks and rumors won’t wait!
Some of the most exciting iPhone 15 series leaks we’ve received so far hints at a periscope zoom camera for at least one iPhone 15 model, a Dynamic Island for all four 2023 iPhones, (finally) a new 3nm chip for the Pro models, and, of course, the one who rules all the rumors. – USB-C charging port across the entire iPhone 15 lineup (with faster charging and data transfer speeds for premium models).
So, let’s see why the iPhone 15 might return to a circular design and why Apple’s 2023 flagship might finally switch from using aluminum and stainless steel to one made of… titanium!
iPhone 15 New circular design – Apple takes inspiration from the iPhone 5C, iPhone X or … Google Pixel?
Before I get into why the iPhone 15 is going to get more round and titanium, it only makes sense to have a look at what kind of round design Apple might be going for here! advice shrimp He says he’ll be watching for more information, but the exact coin he doesn’t know is that “iPhone 15 will feature a new bezel design — round on the back, not square.”
So, I just had to try to guess what Apple’s planned design might be
Another possibility is that Apple will go for something very different from what the company has done before and take some inspiration from Android! The phones I’m thinking of in particular are the original Pixel phones and Google’s Pixel 2.
In any case, the Pixel 2’s design or a more conservative design (but with a flat part of the frame) would actually allow Apple is keeping its “flat” bezels but also making the new iPhone 15 models more comfortable to hold, as the back of the bezel will be rounded (just as the leaks promise).
All the reasons why the iPhone 15 should go back to the circular design and titanium build – it was only a matter of time (and cycles)!
Now, I don’t want to be that guy, but I’ve been sitting on this iPhone redesign story for a few months now… Of course, now that the first leak is out about the iPhone 15 redesign, it’s a little easier to talk about with some additional perspective, so Let’s go ahead and do it! Really, it was always expected (at least for those who follow Apple) that the iPhone would eventually return to the circular design! The first reason is how Apple design cycles work, especially in the recent past…
- iPhone 6, iPhone 7, and iPhone 8 share a similar design
- The iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone 11 looked identical, too
- The iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and now the iPhone 14 look basically the same
So, looking beyond the iPhone 6S, which I intentionally left out, Tim Cook & Co has tended to use the same design for about three years, which makes rumors about a new titanium iPhone 15 with rounded edges all the more likely to pan out!
However, Cupertino upgrade cycles are one thing, but two more practical reasons to arrive at the iPhone 15 with a new look…
iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are too heavy and uncomfortable to use with one hand — it’s time for a change
For starters, if you haven’t noticed, modern iPhones are getting bigger and heavier! And do you know what doesn’t help phones that get bigger and heavier? Flat edges and stainless steel!
Although my industrial aesthetic iPhone 14 Pro and up The iPhone 13 mini helps them look badass Apple’s new iPhones are significantly less comfortable to hold and operate than the iPhone 6S and iPhone 8. I’m reminded of it every time I have to turn on the iPhone 8 to make sure it’s still working okay.
Speaking of weight, titanium is known to be much lighter than the stainless steel that Apple uses for the iPhone Pro, although it is heavier than the aluminum used in the vanilla iPhones. My hunch here is that thanks to that, the new titanium body will be reserved for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra models.
The iPhone 14’s iterative design doesn’t look as fresh as it did in 2020
To the last cause I think it’s time to change the design… my iPhone 14 Pro is starting to look tired next to some Android phone!
I couldn’t help but notice how uninspiring the triangular camera design and muted colors of the current iPhone 14 Pro look next to my own super bold look. Google Pixel 6 Pro (Sorta Sunny) or even other major Android apps like Oppo Find X5 Pro with its ceramic body and smooth back, or the leather version of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra, making it look like a proper Leica camera, it all goes hand in hand with the whole design cycle, but I’m already bored with the current iPhone aesthetic. It’s not just about the functional design aspect (weight and sharp edges), but the way iPhones look!
Apple will return to a rounded design for the iPhone – will Android copy like it did when the iPhone 12 went flat?
I’d like to close by reminding everyone how quickly Android phone makers (with very few exceptions) embraced the iPhone 12’s flat edge design when this first came out in 2020… Of course, it’s not surprising that this happened, but it certainly didn’t make me happy. .
I don’t care which company is copying what – as long as it’s for the best, it doesn’t matter! It’s just that a less ergonomic design wasn’t exactly something Android needed to take from the iPhone (especially among other cool hardware aspects like MagSafe and the wake-up slider). Although I’ve got a fashion statement.
Ironically, this is why I hope now samsung, xiaomi, Motorola, Oppo, Vivo, etc. are going to take another page from Apple’s book (of course, if that page was even written in the first place) and get back to making phones that are more comfortable!
If not, Android will be stuck with one of the worst iPhone themes (in my opinion).
