CAD renders of the iPhone 15 series show that the devices will sport a Dynamic Island and a USB-C port.
As reported by 9to5Mac, they have gotten their hands on CAD models of the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, and iPhone 15 Pro and put together renders of what the upcoming devices will look like.
The design and shape are similar to that of the iPhone 14 series, including the diagonally placed cameras and the flat design, but it looks like Apple will ditch the big notch in favor of the Dynamic Island.
As you might all be aware, Dynamic Island is that pill-shaped hole punch that houses the Face ID that debuted on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. It’s basically software rendering notifications and other indicators around the shape, making use of it instead of just ignoring it right there.
It has its pros and cons, but it is a defining feature that Apple will be pushing to upcoming iPhones.
Another feature that’s a long time coming to iPhones is the USB-C port, and it looks like Apple is finally bringing it to the next-gen iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro. As the European Union voted for the “common charging port” for a majority of devices in their region, they had little choice but to make that happen. And while it is a cause for celebration, Apple might limit the functionality of USB-C ports and charging cables via an IC chip, much like the lightning port.
However, we should take these CAD renders with a grain of salt as the designs are not final, meaning Apple could still change what the final product would look like.
