The website 9to5Mac has published new renders of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, showing what these smartphones will look like.
The photos, according to the source, are based on CAD renderings that smartphone accessory manufacturers are currently working with. The website also refers to a "reliable source", but does not provide more specific information about it.
So what do we see in the pictures?
Instead of the expected one solid state touch side button for adjusting the volume, the phone has the usual separate volume buttons. The device will not receive the solid state touch side button due to manufacturing difficulties.
It's possible that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will also get a third button that will replace the volume switch button to activate silent mode. The new button is rumored to be multi-functional, similar to the Action button on the Apple Watch Ultra. Moreover, it will appear only in Pro models, and in iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus there will be only a standard Mute switch.
In another render, it can be noticed that the camera area of the iPhone 15 Pro Max has a slightly larger protrusion, which is probably due to the presence of the periscope module. The usual iPhone 15 Pro will not have such a module, and therefore the camera protrusion will be slightly smaller.
Judging by the photos, the iPhone 15 Pro will get a very thin screen frame, a maximum rounded side frame and a USB-C port.
