I distinctly remember two thoughts coming to my mind when I first saw Apple unveil the iPhone 14 Pro. What will they do next??” The 14 Pro seems to be the longest model Apple has committed to its design style. The camera layout has remained the same for his three years. The flat-edge design and lack of a home button have been around since 2017, and it’s been a full decade since iPhones introduced Lightning ports. If ever there was a time to do a major redesign…it was it. And I’m not talking about throwing a notch for the island.
Concept designer Antonio De Rosa pulls together all the rumors available on interwebz (along with some creative tweaks of his own) to reveal perhaps the most radical iPhone change in the last five years. Did. The iPhone 15 Pro Max maintains flat edges (it looks more rounded than before), but there are big changes in almost every other area. This incredibly attractive concept features a larger dynamic island on the front, rocker-style volume buttons that slide independently to mute the phone, a Thunderbolt 4 port at the base (instead of a lightning bolt), It has a completely unrecognizable back. Camera layout + branding. For those who can’t get enough of this brilliance, he even has an M1 chip under the hood, making this the first time an iPhone has his M-series chip from Apple.

The first thing you’ll notice on the iPhone 15 Pro Max is the sound of a camera bump with two large cameras instead of three smaller ones. The main reason is that one of these cameras comes with a variable aperture, while the other incorporates a rumored periscope lens. The rectangular camera bump also includes a better flash called the Pro Flash Duo and a dedicated depth mic that can spotlight specific zones and accurately record the audio of what’s in the camera’s frame. increase.
The entire back of the new iPhone 15 Pro Max is also decidedly different. So the 15 Pro does away with the centered Apple logo and uses the word “iPhone” instead. However, the Apple logo is placed in the lower right corner, which almost mimics Trump in its design while creating a sort of balance look.
The biggest change to the iPhone 15 Pro Max is its new camera system. The 14 Pro didn’t do much other than introduce an action mode with a larger sensor and stabilized video, but the 15 Pro returns to the drawing board with a completely redesigned layout. It looks like something out of the Android universe (OnePlus and Vivo have distinct flavors here). The 15 Pro features a large camera with variable aperture and a camera with a periscope lens underneath. A variable aperture camera is a fascinating one. It was only recently attempted by Samsung and was quickly discontinued. But if anyone can pull it off, it’s probably Apple. The variable aperture works like an eye, allowing the camera to capture more light information in low-light settings and produce more natural bokeh, and close in bright settings for an incredibly deep depth of field. You can get a sharp image. The periscope lens just below it handles telephoto and uses unique lens settings to mimic a much longer lens for better optical zoom.
Perhaps the most anticipated change for the iPhone 15 Pro is the elimination of the Lightning port. Thanks to EU legislation, the iPhone 15 Pro is expected to come with USB-C instead, but the company will likely outdo itself by going straight to Thunderbolt 4. Given that we hope to move to portless iPhones in the near future, the smartphone will continue to retain MagSafe and wireless charging.
This concept also brings the M1 chip to the iPhone. This seems like a distant reality, but it’s still a fun feature to imagine. However, it does share some features with its predecessor, such as Dynamic Island (now bigger and better), improved SOS functionality, Always-On display, and SIM-free builds.
Apple plans to unveil the iPhone 15 series as early as September 2023, but it’s unclear how supply chain shortages will affect the company’s ability to deliver its next best iPhone on time. Apple is also rumored to unveil his VR/AR wearable towards the end of the year!
