Initially, there were rumors about the iPhone 15 Pro models having a unified volume button design, but it seems that Apple has changed its plans. The updated design was linked to solid-state button technology, which is no longer being used. As a result, the standard two-button design from the iPhone 14 Pro will be retained. Renders and leaks showing a single button are now outdated due to the design update.
The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max are rumored to have similar designs to the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, featuring 6.1 and 6.7-inch OLED displays with a Dynamic Island cutout for the camera and Face ID hardware. According to leaker Shrimp Apple Pro, the iPhone 15 Pro models might have slimmer bezels, measuring at 1.55mm, breaking the record for the thinnest bezels in a smartphone. This design is reminiscent of the Apple Watch Series 7 and Series 8. The standard iPhone 15 models, however, are not expected to have changes in bezel size.
The recent leaks regarding new iPhone colors adds further detail, explaining that the silver gray finish has a gray back panel and edge, which “is similar to silver.” In addition, the new black version is lighter than the Space Black finish on the iPhone 14 Pro, and the new dark blue hero color will be darker than Apple’s previous blue hues.
