The upcoming iPhone 15 tipped to have rounded back, titanium chassis
According to a tipster specializing in Apple-related leaks, Apple is planning a major design overhaul for its iPhone 15 series. The new chassis will reportedly be made of titanium, while the glass back panel will have rounded edges.
The front will likely remain flat, but will resemble the good old iPhone 5C. So a smoother transition between the phone’s side frame and the back glass is expected. A more comfortable grip is likely the goal, and the titanium construction is likely to reduce weight. The tipster says it’s too early to confirm the changes, and while there’s an internal debate at Apple, nothing is final.
Then again, this prediction isn’t too far-fetched, as Apple’s MacBook and Mac mini have similar looks, so the design language could trickle down to iPhones as well.
