According to renders shared today by 9to5Mac, the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus could see some minor design updates compared to the iPhone 14 Plus. The images are said to be based on CAD drawings of the devices provided to Apple’s device manufacturing supply chain, and they follow leaks we’ve seen previously for both the standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro.

Like the iPhone 15, the iPhone 15 Plus will feature a dynamic island instead of a notch, with Apple bringing the “dynamic island” design to the entire iPhone lineup in 2023. It will also feature a USB-C connector instead of a Lightning connector, another change Apple is making on all “iPhone 15” devices.
The images reveal that the “iPhone 15” Plus will have slightly narrower bezels in addition to a “Dynamic Island” and there may be minor changes to the size and thickness of the device. 9to5Mac says the “iPhone 15” Plus CAD design features “slightly rounded edges” for a smoother transition from the front of the device to the back and a slightly thicker camera bump.

Apple’s “iPhone 15” Plus is expected to be identical in design and feature set to the “iPhone 15” and will still include a dual-lens camera with wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle lenses. The main difference between the “iPhone 15” and the “iPhone 15” Plus is likely to be the battery size, since the “iPhone 15” Plus is 6.7 inches and the “iPhone 15” is 6.1 inches.
Other “iPhone 15” and “iPhone 15” Plus rumors include the same A16 chip as in the iPhone 14 Pro models, a Qualcomm X70 modem, and blue and pink color options. For more on what’s expected for the “iPhone 15,” check out our dedicated round-up.
