Recent leaks have exposed Apple’s new iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro designs, but now precise dimensions have leaked for the iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 15 Pro Max, and there’s a shock in store. A good one.
It comes from the dimensions of the iPhone 15 Pro Max. Leaked by reliable industry insider Ice Universe, they are 159.86 × 76.73 × 8.25 mm. When including the camera bump, the total thickness is 11.84 mm. These numbers sound very similar to the iPhone 14 Pro Max (160.7 x 77.6 x 7.85 mm/12.03 mm, with camera bump), but look more closely, and there’s one key difference.
Every iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max rumor to date has claimed: “the iPhone 15 Pro’s camera bump is MASSIVE.” But Ice Universe’s dimensions actually show that the camera hump will be smaller than last year. In isolation, the iPhone 14 Pro Max camera hump is 4.18 mm, while Ice Universe’s figures reveal it is 3.59 mm on the iPhone 15 Pro Max, a 15% reduction.
Interestingly, the iPhone 15 Pro Max camera hump is almost exactly the same size as the iPhone 13 Pro Max (3.6 mm). Fans had already complained that the iPhone 14 Pro Max camera hump was too big, so seeing it shrink by 15% rather than grow by around 20% (as previously rumored) adds up to a big difference.
Separately, 9to5Mac has also leaked precise dimensions for the iPhone 15 Plus, but there are no surprises here. The new phone allegedly measures 160.87 x 77.76 x 7.81 mm compared to its predecessor’s 160.84 x 78.07 x 7.79 mm. While the iPhone 15 Plus will be slightly taller, narrower and thicker, I doubt the differences will be noticeable in hand.
The good news for standard iPhone 15 buyers is that the new models will feature the modern pill-shaped cut-out, Dynamic Island, and slimmer bezels. The leaker’s latest information is unlikely to go down well with iPhone buyers on a budget. MacRumors states that documents he obtained “confirm” that Apple’s new 3nm A17 chipset will be exclusive to iPhone 15 Pro models, as will a redesigned chassis with solid state power and volume buttons. Even the phones’ connectivity will be different, with Wi-Fi 6E reserved for the Pros — something previous leaks had not distinguished.
