iphone 15 leather case


Following Apple's successful release of the iPhone 14 series in September, there has been a constant buzz of rumors surrounding the features and design of the upcoming iPhone 15 series. As per their usual schedule, Apple is expected to unveil the new handsets in September. Let's delve into what we might expect from the iPhone 15 models later this year:




Similar to the iPhone 14, Apple is likely to introduce four models for the iPhone 15 series: iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. An exciting possibility is the extension of the 'Dynamic Island' feature, first introduced in the iPhone 14 Pro models, to the entire iPhone 15 range. The iPhone 15 Pro models may sport thinner and more curved bezels, while the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus could adopt the flat edge design seen on the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus. Furthermore, it's anticipated that the iPhone 15 Pro models will feature a titanium body instead of stainless steel, offering enhanced durability.




Rumors suggest that the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus might incorporate the 48MP camera introduced in the iPhone 14 Pro models, resulting in improved image quality compared to the main cameras on the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus. An exciting addition to the iPhone 15 Pro Max is the possibility of a periscope zoom lens, enabling optical zoom capabilities of up to 5x or even 10x, a substantial improvement over the 3x zoom found in the iPhone 14 Pro models. There's also speculation that Apple will collaborate with Sony for the main camera, utilizing Sony's state-of-the-art sensor for brighter and more colorful photos with enhanced exposure controls.




An upgrade to Wi-Fi 6E is expected, offering increased bandwidth, faster connectivity speeds, and lower latency compared to Wi-Fi 6 in the iPhone 14 range. However, this upgrade may be limited to the iPhone 15 Pro models.




In compliance with new EU regulations, the iPhone 15 series will leave behind the lightning port and transition to USB-C charging.


No Touch ID


Despite previous rumors, Touch ID will not make a return in the iPhone 15 models, which will continue to use Face ID.


Action Button


The iPhone 15 Pro models are expected to replace the mute button with an action button, likely emulating the action button found on the Apple Watch Ultra. In contrast, the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus are likely to retain the traditional mute switch.


A-Series chip upgrades


The iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will likely feature the A16 chip from the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, offering improved processing performance compared to their iPhone 14 counterparts. Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 Pro models are expected to feature the A17 chip, produced with TSMC's 3-nanometer node, delivering a processing performance boost of around 10 to 15 percent and estimated 35 percent improvement in power efficiency, enhancing battery life.


Leather Cases for the iPhone 15


The Snakehive team is hard at work designing premium leather cases for the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max, ensuring you can add style and functionality to your new device from the moment you receive it.


iPhone Rumours beyond 2023


Looking ahead, there's a possibility that the iPhone 15 Plus model might be replaced with a new 'Ultra' model alongside the Pro Max for the 2024 iPhone. Additionally, there have been reports on the future of Face ID, with suggestions that under-display Face ID technology may debut in 2024 or 2025 iPhone models, though conflicting reports exist.
