We are safe to assume that the iPhone 15 The series will launch in September, and while we wait for these handsets to be official, we have high-quality renders of the Pro model from a reliable source.
This source is 9to5Mac (opens in a new tab)and the images that have been shared show the iPhone 15 Pro from all angles – including from below, so we can see the new USB-C port that all 2023 iPhones would have.
This is described as a “significant upgrade”, with the iPhone 15 Pro expected to be housed in a titanium case with a more rounded edge design than the iPhone 15 Pro. iPhone 14 Pro. The camera bump is also larger, with lenses protruding further.

Buttons and glasses
We also take a look at the new solid-state buttons for volume control, mute, and power. According previous rumorsthese will replace conventional mechanical buttons, providing haptic feedback in place of physical movement.
The glasses would also be smaller: 1.55 millimeters to be precise. The glass display will also be slightly curved around the edges, according to this leak, “transforming seamlessly into the titanium frame of the device” around the bezel.
As previously mentioned, 9to5Mac says there will be a new dark red color for the iPhone 15 Pro, so watch out for that. Finally, the dimensions of the phone are apparently slightly smaller than the 2022 model.
Analysis: an iPhone that looks great
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that, but based on these images, we’d say the iPhone 15 Pro is shaping up to be one of the best looking iPhones yet – and we’re guessing the other models in the range will be similar in their aesthetics.
We’ve always liked the more rounded look of past iPhones, rather than the straight, angular edges on the iPhone 14 and recent editions. We suspect this will also make smartphones feel better in the hand.
The switch to USB-C – under pressure from EU regulators – has long been the talk of the town and should make finding a charger easier. However, you could need Apple approved cable to make the most of the new port.
This new dark red color also looks great and will be a welcome alternative to the usual silver and gray choices. As we have seen with the yellow iPhone 14adding additional colors is an easy win for Apple, and we’d love to see even more of it down the line.
