iPhone 15 series: New leak reveals Type-C ports and Dynamic Island across all models as Apple's next-gen smartphones reportedly enter early production
While the rumor mill for the iPhone 15 series continues to spin slowly, well-known Apple source Mark Gurman has now revealed some tentative details of the next-gen iPhones—all of which are expected to debut later in the year, around September.
According to Gurman, Apple will equip all iPhone 15 models with the Dynamic Island feature it debuted on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max last year. This, of course, means that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will both ditch the age-old rectangular notch in favor of the new "Dynamic Island" cutout.
Supposedly, all iPhone 15 models will maintain the display sizes of their predecessors. The Pro models, though, are expected to switch to a titanium frame from the steel frame used on the iPhone 14 Pro duo. As widely reported in the past, Apple will also make the jump from physical volume buttons to haptic ones—at least on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Lastly, all iPhone 15 series models will come equipped with a Type-C port in place of Apple's Lightning port used on previous generations. This change will be, in part, due to EU legislature, and also unifies Apple's ecosystem with most other products already having made the switch.
That said, going by word straight out of China, the iPhone 15 series has now entered the initial stages of production. Reportedly, Foxconn has received instructions to push the next-gen phones into the "new machine trial production" stage, pending mass production in a few months.
