In Douyin, the Chinese version of TikTok, a claimed prototype of the next iPhone 15 Pro has been revealed.
Most recent rumor is consistent with a number of leaks that we have seen over the last several days. Yet this fake device provides us with a more complete view of the design, since the other leaks were design images.
In contrast to past rumors, the mockup of the iPhone 15 Pro has a single volume rocker button rather than two separate keys for up and down. Apple is expected to switch out the physical buttons for solid-state ones that recreate movement with haptic feedback.
Also, the bottom connector of the phone looks to be broader than the Lightning port, reveals that the phone will come with a USB-C port, and the mute switch is expected to be replaced by a customisable action button.
Generally, the iPhone 15 Pro matches the iPhone 14 Pro very well, with a few minor differences. Other speculated modifications, such as a bigger camera bump with more projecting lenses, are not immediately seen in the video.
The edges of the phone are also rumored to be somewhat curved. For customers who now complain that the edges are too sharp, this ought to make it more comfortable to grip.
Dummy models are frequently produced for case manufacturers, which may account for the fact that this iPhone 15 Pro replica is deficient in details. For instance, the titanium frame and the reportedly smaller bezels are not revealed.
Together with the other versions, the iPhone 15 Pro will probably be unveiled in September. The rumoured A17 Bionic processor, which will be built on the new 3nm technology, will most likely power the more expensive versions. A periscope camera could also be available on the Ultra, the device that will replace the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
