Rumors and leaks have started ramping up regarding Apple’s next iPhone lineup. Just a while ago, a leak revealed us about the design of the upcoming iPhone 15 Plus through a fresh batch of CAD based renders. Now, we’ve a new formation about another iPhone 15 model.
Apple introduced the iPhone 14 Pro Max last September, and in the next few months, we could see the brand unveil the iPhone 15 Pro Max, which has appeared in leaked renders.
Today some rather rough-looking CAD renders of the iPhone 15 Pro Max leaked through a prolific leakster/tipster Ice Universe, who has proclaimed accurate information about Apple’s and other smartphone makers’ plans in the past.
iPhone 15 Pro Max with thinner camera bump and smaller footprint?
From the looks of things, the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be thicker than its predecessor regardless of having a slightly reduced height and width, but keep in mind that the design you see in these renders is about 70% finished.

According to Ice Universe’s dimensions, the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s footprint is smaller both in terms of height and width compared to the iPhone 14 Pro Max. The new set of renders also comes with some alleged dimensions of the Max. As per those, iPhone 15 Pro Max will arrive with a less protrusive camera bump being 0.59 mm shallower than that of the previous-gen iPhone 14 Pro Max.
According to Ice Universe, the iPhone 15 Pro Max will measure 159.86 x 76.73 x 8.25 mm, compared to the 160.7 x 77.6 x 7.85 mm of the 14 Pro Max. Ice has also revealed that the next-gen Pro Max will be apparently be 0.4 mm thicker excluding the camera array, and it could also be seemingly 0.19 mm thinner including the camera than on the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

As per the aforementioned dimensions, iPhone 15 Pro Max’s footprint should be smaller both in terms of height and width compared to the iPhone 14 Pro Max. You can also observe the volume and power buttons are missing in these renders, presumably due to the fact that next year’s iPhone models are rumored to adopt a solid-state design for volume and power buttons, instead of a mechanical button design, which is similar to the iPhone 7’s home button or Mac trackpads.
Meanwhile, the sides of the phone have also been slightly curved, depicting the previous rumors about Apple adopting thinner bezels and curved edges for the next-gen high-end iPhone models. There’s two more important things – the charging port and Dynamic Island. The entire iPhone 15 lineup will be offered with Dynamic Island, and they will be using a USB-C port, switching from Lighting port. We’ll likely hear more about the iPhone 15 Pro Max in the coming months.
