The iPhone 15 Pro’s rumored latest design is one I can’t wait for

Apple moved to a throwback design with flat edges for the iPhone 12 lineup, and that trend continues up to now with the iPhone 14 series. All models of the iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and iPhone 14 have had the identical flat edges covering the phones. But when a latest rumor is to be believed, things could change with the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max.

In response to a leaker who goes by ShrimpApplePro, the iPhone 15 Pro lineup could have thinner bezels and curved edges. Each the design features could mix to offer the phones an “Apple Watch-like look.” And you already know what? I’m all for it.

I prefer it curvy, Apple

Apple moved to flat edges with the iPhone 12, which was a breath of fresh air after having curved edges on the iPhones for years. It was beautiful to take a look at, but I never liked it. The flat edges look great, but they’re also not particularly comfortable to carry.

And this problem becomes exacerbated when you go together with Pro Max variants of the iPhone, as the sides start digging into your pinky finger. I’m a dedicated Pro Max iPhone user as a result of my battery anxiety, however it comes at a price. I hold my phone in a way that my pinky finger rests at the underside of the device, and the underside edge hurts my finger if I’m using the phone for long durations at a stretch. And that has been the case with just about all recent flagship smartphones, because of Apple paving the best way in 2020.

Well I actually have the result for the display design of the iPhone 15 series.
– all iPhone 15 series may have the identical display sizes as iPhone 14 series
– pro 15 may have thinner bezels with curve edges, display remains to be flat tho, only the bezels is curve

Unfortunately, what Apple does, the smartphone industry follows. It happened with the notch, and it continued with the flat-edge design. Consequently, almost every smartphone launched in 2022 was a nightmare to make use of, personally speaking.

That’s why I’m glad about even the slightest possibility of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, aka iPhone 15 Ultra, having curved edges. It also signifies that Android smartphone corporations will likely follow suit and end flat-edge phone endeavors. I hope we get to see more curvy smartphones in 2024.

iPhone 15 Pro goes back to 2014 for ‘innovation’ purposes

In 2014, Apple shifted to curved edges on the iPhone 6 from the iPhone 5s’ boxy design. On the time, the flat edges weren’t a usability issue since the phones were small, and our holding habits were different. Nevertheless it’s 2023, and if the most recent rumor is to be believed, Apple is largely going back to 2014.

Samsung also introduced its Galaxy Note Edge, which had a “waterfall” style display on the fitting edge, in 2014. It was followed by the Galaxy S6 Edge with curved edges on each side – something that has been appreciated by the Asian market. As per ShrimpApplePro, Apple will introduce curved edges with thinner bezels, but it’s going to still have a flat display. That’s excellent news for some, but is kind of a disappointment for me as someone who actually likes curved displays.

In a way, going back to the old “curvy” design can be a case of Apple admitting that it made a improper selection going with the flat edges. And folks have been vocal about it on social media, saying the flat edges don’t make big devices good for usability when put next to phones with curved edges.

Curved edges also makes it easier to achieve the top-left corner of the device with one hand (in case you are a right-hander) and vice versa. And considering that iOS still has some apps with design elements at that a part of the screen, it’s a welcome design change — even when it means dialing back time nine years.

One in all many changes for the iPhone 15

In 2023, the lineup-starter iPhone 15 will probably be the star of the show. It is alleged to borrow the Dynamic Island from the iPhone 14 Pro series, which can reduce the gap between the fundamental and Pro models. But there isn’t a word if the 120Hz refresh rate will trickle right down to the iPhone 15. If it doesn’t, the Dynamic Island implementation will probably be interesting to see, because it won’t be as smooth as on the iPhone 14 Pro series.

The iPhone 15 series is touted to have the identical display size because the iPhone 14 lineup. It should also feature curved edges. It looks just like the primary differentiating factor between the vanilla models and the Pro iPhones will probably be the cameras, especially until the under-display Face ID shows up on iPhone 16 Pro series.

Mix all of that goodness with a cushty, more practical design, and we’re potentially a killer yr for the iPhone. It’s still too early to get too hopeful, but things do seem like they’re heading in the fitting direction.
