September is nearly right here, and which means Apple’s iPhone 15 occasion is simply across the nook. The iPhone 15 rumor mill has been rising even stronger the previous few weeks as we get nearer to launch, and by this level, we already know a lot in regards to the still-unannounced telephones.
In the lead-up to a new iPhone, telephone case producers get some particulars, like product dimensions and different {hardware} adjustments. This is in order that they’ll manufacture these instances forward of time and get them prepared earlier than or proper at launch.
We not too long ago obtained our fingers on a slim, clear case from Totallee for the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro. It doesn’t reveal every thing in regards to the iPhone 15 Pro, but it surely does reveal a few sneaky issues in regards to the upcoming handset.
An Action button and USB-C? Maybe!

The greatest rumors for the iPhone 15 Pro are associated to changing the basic mute toggle with a new Action button, much like the one on the Apple Watch Ultra, in addition to changing Lightning with USB-C. Unfortunately, we will’t verify both of these two issues with the case pattern that we obtained from Totallee.
The slim, clear case from Totallee gives little or no perception into both of this stuff. On the left aspect, there is a cutout opening, which might work for both the normal mute toggle or an Action button. I hoped that the case would characteristic a button cowl there, as that will be extra apparent, however alas, the cutout works for both, so we will’t draw any conclusions from that alone.

The similar factor is true with the underside opening for the charging port. It maintains the capsule form like most different instances, so you’ll be able to’t particularly say that this is designed for a USB-C cable, as it’s similar to Lightning by way of form.
Having a clearer indication of USB-C can be nice, however assuming the iPhone 15 does have USB-C, it’s good to comprehend it received’t trigger a drastic shift within the design for the telephone.
Forget in regards to the haptic rumors

Another rumor that was circulating was that Apple could possibly be altering the 2 quantity buttons to a single unified rocker, probably utilizing haptic suggestions rather than precise buttons.
But studies appeared to point that Apple had encountered technical difficulties with this design, as it might require three haptic engines and was extra complicated to construct. Does our iPhone 15 Pro case provide any hints about what’s occurring right here?
The Totallee case has covers for 2 separate buttons, so it does appear to point Apple ditched the unified quantity rocker. We may see that in a future iPhone mannequin, however for now, it seems that there’ll nonetheless be two particular person buttons for quantity management.
Button positions have shifted

This is one thing that appears to occur yearly, and I’m satisfied it’s to make your current instances incompatible with the brand new fashions, regardless of wanting very related.
The cutout for the mute change/Action button on the left, in addition to the amount buttons, appear to have been shifted downward ever so barely, as does the aspect button on the correct.

I additionally seen the scale of the buttons on the case are smaller than what you’ve on the iPhone 14 Pro proper now, which might point out one other change.
It’s frequent for iPhone button placement to shift round like this with each new era, and whereas it’s not probably the most thrilling factor on the earth, it does give us a higher concept of what the iPhone 15 Pro will seem like when it’s lastly introduced.
Thinner bezels are all however confirmed

I attempted to place the Totallee iPhone 15 Pro case on my iPhone 14 Pro, and in fact, it received’t match. The case appears too small for the iPhone 14 Pro, which can point out that the bodily dimension of the gadget is going to be barely smaller, with thinner bezels to retain that very same 6.1-inch show dimension.
We’ve heard loads of rumors about thinner bezels for the iPhone 15 Pro, and this case appears to additional verify these studies.
No massive digicam adjustments

Finally, what in regards to the digicam? From studies and rumors, we should always proceed to count on a massive digicam bump. But the scale of the digicam module appears about the identical.
It’s a little laborious to find out if the digicam module will stay the identical dimension, at the very least with the common Pro mannequin. As I discussed already, the case appears smaller than present iPhone 14 Pro instances, so my iPhone 14 Pro doesn’t match nicely. But on the again, the digicam module appears to suit advantageous — it’s not obstructed by the case itself.
Changes within the digicam module could also be extra vital with the iPhone 15 Pro Max, as that mannequin is anticipated to get a new periscope-style telephoto digicam for higher zoom efficiency. But, at the very least for the common iPhone 15 Pro, it doesn’t seem an excessive amount of has modified right here, at the very least not bodily.
Different, however acquainted
We’re solely a few weeks away from Apple’s iPhone 15 occasion, so we’ll discover out what the iPhone 15 Pro will seem like quickly sufficient. And we should always get all of these particulars alongside a new Apple Watch Series 9, and possibly even an Apple Watch Ultra 2.
If we discovered something from this straightforward iPhone 15 Pro case, it’s that the iPhone 15 Pro can be completely different, however very acquainted on the similar time. That’s largely what the rumor mill has instructed over the past few months, and this case seems to verify that. But there are different adjustments that no case or accent can tease — such because the rumored titanium physique, new A17 chip, and new colours.
Apple is anticipated to announce the iPhone 15 sequence on September 12 or 13.
