Back in February, we first saw the CAD-based renders of the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro, revealing some key design changes. Now, a new CAD-based render by 9to5Mac slightly contradicts the previous one. The publisher claims this was obtained from a detailed set of CAD files from a very trusted source.
New CAD images reveal that iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will include the Action Button despite previous reports that Apple would bypass these solid-state buttons and Action Button on 2023’s Pro iPhones owing to technical concerns. In contrast to the unified volume rocker seen in some of the rumored renders, the final product will feature physical volume controls.
Earlier CADs and schematics showed camera bumps that were far larger than the one on the newest iPhone 14 Pro. Some of the individual protrusions were even larger than the total bump. Fortunately, the revised CADs showcase a more practical layout. The camera bump is noticeably bigger this year, but the outward extensions are no longer cartoonish.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max appears to have a somewhat larger camera bulge than the iPhone 15 Pro, lending validity to the persistent reports of a periscope zoom lens. It is not expected that this year’s smaller iPhone 15 Pro will get a periscope zoom lens.
The new CAD renders also show that the screen’s bezels are extremely thin, and USB-C is included, and the device’s overall frame is significantly more rounded than the current iPhone 14 series.
We should know more about the iPhone 15 Pro models in the coming months.
