iPhone 15 could come with an iPhone 5C-like curved design

Decade-old iPhone 5C-like design, but more premium?

Highlights
  • A new tip from reliable leaker ShrimpApplePro on Twitter suggests that the next-gen iPhone could adopt a curved side frame back panel.
  • The iPhone 15 series’ back panel could have a similar design to the iPhone 5C.
  • Apple could use titanium instead of stainless steel for the body of the iPhone 15 lineup. 

It seems like only yesterday that Apple released the iPhone 14 series, and we have already learned a lot about the iPhone 15 lineup via leaks and rumours. The latest and rather wild one circulating on Twitter is that the Cupertino giant could tweak the iPhone 15 family’s design a bit. Reliable leaker ShrimpApplePro on Twitter suggests that the next-gen iPhone could adopt a curved side frame back panel instead of the flat one we have seen since the iPhone 12.

This should be a familiar concept to those following the Apple world for a while, as the MacBook Pro and old-gen iPhone came with a similar design language. For instance, the decade-old iPhone 5C came with a flat display and curved back. Apple will take a page out of its old playbook and likely make it more premium if this turns out accurate.

It won’t be the first time we will see Apple deciding to go back to an older design. The flat body style of the latest iPhone models resembles the iPhone 5/5S. And the curved frame design was universally loved starting with the iPhone 6 (most sold iPhone) and peaking with the iPhone 11.

The tipster also says that Apple might switch from stainless steel to titanium with the iPhone 15 series. We don’t expect the glass back is going anywhere since MagSafe won’t work with anything as well as it does with glass.

In theory, the super-premium titanium body on the upcoming iPhone should make them more durable than the stainless steel ones. After all, the most rugged Apple Watch Ultra has a titanium body. However, like always, you’d take this news with the traditional pinch of salt, as it’d be too hasty to take this too seriously.
