The exclusive new iPhone 15 reveals a stunning design decision from Apple

11/26 update below. This post was originally published on November 24

The first iPhone 15 leaks are already promising a mix of Stupendous And the Controversial design changes. And the excitement is likely to ramp up even more now that a new exclusive has revealed yet another stunning design decision.

In a move that would see Apple step back in time, a new leak has come from an unidentified person shrimp It claims that “all edges will be rounded” on iPhone 15 models similar to the 2013 iPhone 5C.

The iPhone 5C was one of the most comfortable iPhones in the hand, but the design was not liked because the body was made of plastic. However, this mistake will not be repeated, as ShrimpApplePro stated that the body of the iPhone 15 models will be made of titanium.

This physical change has already leaked, but was considered exclusive to the new flagship model iPhone 15 Ultra due to cost. titanium price $35-50 per kgCompared to $1-1.50 per kilogram of stainless steel, that makes it about 30 times more expensive – though that can come down to just $3.50 for a 100-gram body, and even less when bought on a mass scale.

Titanium is just as strong as stainless stains 40% of its own weight and 3-4 times stronger for the same weight, making it a popular material for aircraft parts. Moreover, while the iPhone’s combination of ergonomics and extreme durability makes a lot of sense, it would also mark a surprising change of direction from Apple after years of making their iPhones heavier and angular.

Update 11/26: More iPhone 15 information has been leaked courtesy of one of Apple’s manufacturing partners (via Mac rumors). In a veiled letter to its shareholders, Apple supplier Cirrus Logic strongly hinted that Apple would remove physical buttons from next-generation iPhones.

In a letter to shareholders (PDF link), the company confirmed that it is working “with a strategic client [to] Bringing a new HPMS component to the market in smartphones next year. ”

HMPS includes the touch drivers provided by Cirrus Logic for the iPhone’s Taptic Engine. Cirrus Logic CEO John Forsyth added further clarification during the company’s earnings call this month (via Search for alpha), saying the component will hit the market in the “back half of next year.” The period during which, historically, Apple was the only major partner of Cirrus Logic to launch a new smartphone.

Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis and Tom O’Malley were more specific. The duo explained to investors that the new Cirrus Logic HPMS component is for the iPhone 15, and “the biggest change to next year’s new iPhone models is the removal of the buttons, which requires more [HPMS] Drivers for Touch Engine”.

This is a rumor I first grew up in October, with much of the bullshit being considered just bullshit. Not anymore.

So how excited are you? ShrimpApplePro notes that the info is “still very early, so take it for what it is” but the leaker’s sources are well respected after insiders revealed an iPhone 14 redesign without a notch. September 2021In the same month, Apple launched the iPhone 13.

For me, the doubt is less about whether Apple will make these changes and more about whether they will apply to the full range, or just the iPhone 15 Pro or Ultra. With Apple determined to increase differentiation between models, the thought of it reaching the full iPhone 15 range seems too good to be true.

He said that, with iPhone 14 / iPhone 14 Plus sales are disappointing And the High manufacturing costsMaybe, just maybe, Apple is willing to go with its iPhone 15 lineup. After all, it’s a year of big change for the iPhone. Whether Apple likes it or not.
