2/5 The iPhone 14 Pro already has an amazing camera. It can take pictures that look like they were snapped by a professional photographer or from a DSLR. So, what could Apple do to make the iPhone 15 camera even better? Well, here's what the rumours are saying.

3/5 Big Camera Changes for iPhone 15: With the last iPhone, the iPhone 14, Apple did not change the camera too much from the iPhone 13. But now, one of the most exciting whispers comes from industry analyst Jeff Pu (via MacRumors), who says that the regular iPhone 15 is going to have a much better camera. Instead of a 12-megapixel camera, it might have a 48-megapixel camera. This means your photos could look much clearer, especially when you zoom in. (Apple)

4/5 New Image Sensors: Also, the new iPhone 15 might have a fancy sensor that can capture more light. Why is that important? Well, when a camera can catch more light, it can take better pictures. It's cool that Apple is putting this new technology in the regular iPhone 15, not just the fancier Pro models. (Apple)

Excitement is building as new details about the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro have emerged just weeks before Apple's September 12 iPhone launch event. Let's dive into what's buzzing about the iPhone 15 Pro's design and features.

The iPhone 15 Pro is expected to get a makeover with a tougher yet lighter grade 5 titanium build, replacing the stainless steel used in the iPhone 14 Pro. However, this upgrade might come at a price, with speculations suggesting that the 'Pro' models could be up to $200 pricier than the current flagship phones.

iPhone 15 Pro Leaked Images

Now, leaked images of the iPhone 15 Pro are circulating online, offering a glimpse of the significant changes coming to these high-end devices. These alleged images, shared by the renowned leaker Ice Universe on Twitter, claim to be the genuine iPhone 15 Pro. But here's the catch: it's not confirmed if these pictures depict the real deal or just a dummy unit created for case manufacturers.

Design Details Revealed

The images give us a peek at the front, bottom, and side of the iPhone 15 Pro, revealing some key details. The back camera layout appears quite similar to the current models, with the LiDAR scanner and flash in familiar positions. Although the camera plateau seems roughly the same size as the iPhone 14 Pro, the angle makes it challenging to analyze fully.

Switching to USB-C

In another twist, the iPhone 15 Pro is rumored to replace the Lightning port with a USB-C port. The images show the port placed between the speaker and microphone grills, each with varying numbers of holes. This shift to USB-C is expected to apply to the entire iPhone 15 lineup, opening up new possibilities for accessory makers.

Notably, the leaked images also reveal an 'Action Button' above the Volume buttons, taking the place of the Mute Switch. This button is said to house numerous shortcuts, enhancing user convenience. Additionally, the Volume buttons appear separate, dispelling earlier rumors of a single elongated button. The iPhone 15 Pro's side also seems slightly thicker than its predecessors.

Remember, these leaked images are not confirmed as authentic, so it's wise to approach this news with caution. Apple is all set to unveil the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models in the upcoming week, promising a host of changes and new features. Coupled with the anticipated iOS 17, the iPhone 15 Pro models might just mark Apple's most significant upgrade yet. Stay tuned for the official announcement.
