Rumor | iPhone 15, 15 Plus and 15 Pro show up to complete their set of dummy units
The iPhone 15 "Ultra", or, possibly, "15 Pro Max", has been involved in an alleged hands-on leak well in advance, albeit as a dummy unit thought to exist in order to guide case-makers in the run-up to its late-2023 launch.
Now, the rest of its 2023 family has allegedly joined it in the same form, as MacRumors' full "set of dummy models". Their line-up suggests that Apple will offer its flagship handset in a choice of 4 variants for yet another year.
Therefore, it seems the 14 Plus does indeed get a successor, which seems to share a new Action Button with the rest of its 15-series siblings. Its replica is the same size as that of its highest-end counterpart, and is yet again restricted to 2 rear cameras rather than 3.
The "15 Plus" is the only one to be represented in a dark finish as opposed to the pale silver of previous physical iPhone leaks. On that note, this one might hint at a change to frosted glass across the board, whereas that cosmetic feature has been exclusive to Pro models thus far.
Then again, MacRumors correspondent Dan Barbera does suggest that each variant may feel different in the hand, thanks to a new bevelled edge to their metallic frames. Hopefully, these subtle upgrades will be enough for consumers willing to shell out for these suspected first-gen USB type-C iPhones.
