We shouldn’t have to wait much longer to wait for the iPhone 15 Pro announcement at Apple’s “Wonderlust” event on September 12th, and there could be plenty of upgrades in store. Rumor has it that the iPhone 15 Pro will be the biggest leap forward since the iPhone X thanks to plenty of new changes, from a new titanium frame with thinner bezels to the cutting-edge A17 Bionic chip and motion button.
Now a Presentation of the new iPhone 15 Pro Popular leaker Apple Intro brings us the latest peak of what to expect from Apple’s next-generation high-end smartphone. “This year will be the biggest for iPhone in some time,” they wrote.

Besides the display, here’s a list of seven of the biggest rumored design changes coming to the iPhone 15 Pro. The list reflects rumors that have been circulating for a while, but seeing all that is on display in a rendered version of the final product is interesting in itself. Especially amid all the hype leading up to Apple’s big event.
Read on for the seven biggest leaked iPhone 15 Pro features so far.
New titanium body
Let’s start with the form factor itself. The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max (or Ultra as Apple calls it) tend to ditch stainless steel in favor of titanium for the surrounding frame.
Being a stronger and lighter material than aluminum and steel, this switch should make holding iPhone 15 Pro easier without sacrificing structural integrity. This means that your phone will be better equipped to withstand bumps and drops with greater ease.
Previous iPhone 15 Pro models showed ridiculously thin bezels for Apple’s next-generation smartphone. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman revealed in August that the phone’s borders will be reduced to just 1.5mm, a figure this latest leak reflects.
Apparently, we have Apple’s introduction of LIPO — Low Pressure Overmolding — into their production process to thank for this latest step forward. Apple did this previously with the Apple Watch 7, making a huge difference in the amount that can be displayed on the screen.
Bigger camera lenses
Although the iPhone 15 Pro is not expected to receive the new rumored periscope zoom lens on the iPhone 15 Pro Max with 6x zoom, its camera suite is still seeing an overhaul.
Apple Intro said the iPhone 15 Pro could get larger camera lenses, though they hedged not to confirm that yet. In May, another leaker claimed that the iPhone 15 Pro series will get a new camera arrangement that adjusts the positions of the ultra-wide and telephoto lenses. This move appears to have been made to accommodate the new periscope zoom, though it will likely be exclusive to the Pro Max.
More curved design
As we’ve seen in previous renders, the iPhone 15 Pro is expected to feature slightly curved edges, Apple Intro said. This curved frame can make the phone more comfortable to hold, removing the hard edges we saw on the iPhone 14 series to create a design somewhere between it and older, rounder iPhones like the iPhone 11.
Say goodbye to the mute switch and hello to the action button. Rumor has it that the iPhone 15 Pro is swapping the switch for a flexible, programmable solid-state action button. With it, you’ll still be able to turn your phone’s ringtone on and off, just as you would with the mute switch. But you’ll also be able to program the button to perform a host of other useful functions, like enabling Do Not Disturb or Low Power Mode, and more.
With this change, the iPhone 15 Pro models could mark the end of an era for iPhones. The mute switch has been on every iPhone since Apple first released the original in 2007. But while the physical switch has its benefits, Apple and other smartphone manufacturers have been steadily stripping their contemporaries of their cellphone designs for years. . Who knows, soon the mute switch could take the path of the 30-pin headphone and charger jacks.
One of the biggest changes coming to the iPhone 15 series is USB-C charging. Apple has confirmed its plans to ditch its Lightning port for a more universal charging standard in line with the European Union’s recent mandate that all phones, tablets, and cameras must use a USB-C port for charging by 2024. It could also be heading towards the iPhone 15 Pro.
New color options
Apple Intro confirmed a previous rumor that the iPhone 15 Pro will come in two new color options, blue and space gray. The latter color, dubbed Titanium Gray, is an especially appropriate color since Apple is adding titanium side rails to the Pro iPhones this year.
according to 9to5Mac Report Last week, this gray option was set to replace the gold option we’ve seen on all iPhone Pro devices since the line’s introduction. The outlet said Space Black and Silver will still be around.
