New Delhi: Apple doesn't reveal its upcoming lineup of flagship smartphones months in advance like Google. But that doesn't mean we won't get to see what this year's iPhone lineup has in store for us.
The renders of the iPhone 15 have been leaked by the folks at 9to5Mac, which confirms two key design changes: a dynamic island will replace the wide notch and a Type-C port will replace the Lightning connector.
After releasing renders for the Pro version, 9to5Mac has now given us our first look at the non-Pro model of the iPhone 15. Based on the images the iPhone 15 will be given the same treatment as the Pro models in the series. This implies that the Type-C port and Dynamic Island will become standard across the board.

According to the CAD-based renders of the iPhone 15, the standard iPhone 15 will undergo some significant design changes. Dynamic Island is the first significant change.
Considered a Pro-only feature when it was first introduced on the iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max, it is now available on the base model as well. The gadget is rumored to have a 6.2-inch OLED screen.
The Type-C connector, which replaces the Lightning port on the bottom of the iPhone 15, is another difference between the iPhone 15 and the iPhone 14.
The regular model will also feature traditional volume and power buttons instead of the capacitive buttons rumored for the 15 Pro variations. It will still have a mute switch on the left side and dual cameras at the back positioned diagonally.
The renders shared by 9to5Mac were created by 3D artist Ian Zelbo using CAD data from Apple. The design of the iPhone 15 could change ahead of release, despite the fact that historically these renders have accurately represented the final product.
However, it is possible that OEMs make the Type-C port and pill-shaped cutout standard across the board for the entire lineup of iPhone 15 models.
The iPhone 15 will feel more luxurious thanks to Apple's decision to replace the notch with a dynamic island. The front camera and Face ID sensor will be hidden by the cut-out.
Additionally, businesses can use the Type-C port to comply with Europe's common charger policy. This port should support faster charging and data transfer speeds as compared to the Lightning port.
