A recent report has unveiled details about the upcoming iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max just before the company’s ‘Wonderlust’ September launch event. Over the past months, various aspects of the iPhone 15 series, including color options and internal specifications, have surfaced online. Now, we have information regarding the dimensions and weight of these new iPhones.
According to a MacRumors report from undisclosed sources, the iPhone 15 is expected to measure 147.6×71.6×7.8mm and weigh 171g. These measurements are quite similar to the iPhone 14, with just a one-gram reduction in weight. Both the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will continue to use the 6013 T6 aluminum material for their chassis, similar to the 2022 model.
On the other hand, the Pro models show more noticeable differences. The iPhone 15 Pro is projected to measure 146.6×70.6×8.25mm and weigh 188g, compared to last year’s iPhone 14 Pro with dimensions of 147.5×71.5×7.85mm and a weight of 206g. Although the new model appears thicker, it is expected to be 8.73 percent lighter.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max from last year measured 160.7×77.6×7.85mm and weighed 240g, but its successor is claimed to weigh 221g and measure 159.9×76.7×8.25mm. This suggests that the new top-of-the-line model will be 7.91 percent lighter than the previous Pro Max model.
Notably, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models are rumored to feature titanium chassis instead of the stainless steel used in last year’s models, making them lighter and more durable. Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are expected to retain the same aluminum chassis, indicating that their weight is unlikely to undergo significant changes.
Previous predictions suggested slightly different weights for the Pro models due to the switch to a titanium chassis. While the weight reduction is minimal, the lighter chassis could help offset the weight of protective cases for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
