The upcoming iPhones could resemble the 11 models with rounder sides.

If a current rumour is true, all iPhones will receive a new design this year; among other things, there will be no more sharp edges. Even bigger changes will be reserved for the Pro models.

It feels like Apple has just unveiled the iPhone 14 series, but the company will introduce the new models in about eight months. This means that the functions and design of the devices have already been determined, or possible options are now being weighed, and decisions are being made. Accordingly, the leaks are increasing, and by spring, most of the secrets about the upcoming iPhones could already be revealed, just like last year. According to the latest rumour, Apple will make smartphones a round thing again.

According to the rather accurate leaker ShrimpApplePro, all new models should have rounded edges and corners. The displays are still supposed to remain flat, but the cover glass is supposed to be curved on the sides to allow a smooth transition to the frame. The effect looks similar to the Apple Watch, according to the leaker. Unlike the standard devices, the Pro variants are also said to have a narrower bezel around the displays.

Pro models without physical buttons
If Ming-Chi Kuo is correct, the Pro models will feature even bigger design changes. The most successful Apple analyst recently renewed his prediction from last November, according to which the Pros will no longer have physical buttons. Still, the volume and power button functions will be controlled via touch surfaces.

Users should still have the feeling of pressing real buttons, though. Therefore, according to Kuo, the devices will have vibration motors (Taptic Engines) on the left and right side of the inside of the frame, which works similarly to the Touch ID of iPhone 7 and 8 as well as the two latest SE devices.

It is all but certain that the iPhone 15 series will not have Lightning connectors but USB-C jacks. Kuo expects differences between the Pros and Normals with this change as well. He assumes that the standard devices will remain at USB 2.0 speeds. That means the data rate will not increase with the new input but will remain at 480 megabits per second (Mbps). On the other hand, the analyst expects at least USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3.0 speed for the pros, i.e. 20 or 30 gigabits per second (Gbit/s).

A camera with a periscope telephoto lens, which is supposed to be exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro Max, is also a hot topic. A prism or mirror deflects the light beam at a 90-degree angle, so the lens does not have to protrude far from the smartphone’s back for multiple optical magnifications. In addition to Kuo, South Korean website The Elec and GF Securities analyst Jeff Pu recently reported this, according to MacRumors.
