Apple iPhone 15 | This Could Be The Appearance Of The iPhone 15

It will say goodbye to the Lightning port and bet on a more curved shape

The first leaks from the iPhone 15 production line seem to corroborate suspicions that the proprietary Lightning port is about to disappear. Instead, and partly thanks to pressure from the European Union, Apple will use a USB-C connection in the new phones.

It is not the only change that the iPhone 15 will bring, although it is the most significant. Apple has used this port since 2012, when it decided to retire the 30-pin connector on the iPhone 5 and replace it with a more versatile, reversible connector with greater charging capacity. The connection is not only present in the brand's phones. iPads and various accessories like AirPods and Mac peripherals use it, too.

His death, however, was more than announced. New European Union legislation requires all small electronic devices to now be charged using a USB-C connection. The imposed deadlines theoretically allow Apple to keep Lightning for another year, but the company has already begun the transition on other product lines, such as the iPad, and there is little point in prolonging the inevitable.

The move to the new port does not mean a big change in the design of the connection (Lightning and USB-C have similar dimensions) but Apple will take advantage of the iPhone 15 to renew the appearance of the phone.

According to information that the specialized publication 9to5Mac has had access to, the phone will have rounded edges instead of flat ones, as it has had in recent generations.

The new iPhones will also have thinner borders on the screen, although the size of the so-called "dynamic island" (the area of ​​​​the screen that is left black for the front camera) will remain.

A detail that also draws attention is that the camera module is somewhat thicker, which suggests that Apple could use a larger and resolution sensor this year.

The information is drawn from CAD models already in place by some case and accessory manufacturers, which tend to be fairly accurate at this point in the development cycle. For the iPhone to be ready in stores in the fall, factories in China have to already be working on final candidates.

As in previous years, Apple is expected to announce the new iPhone models in September. In recent years it has released four iPhone models, two basic models with different screen sizes and two Pro models with advanced features. Some analysts suggest that the company could be considering launching a fifth model, iPhone Ultra, with unique features and a higher price, although it is not clear if it will hit the market this year or next.
