A set of alleged iPhone 15 mockups have been examined with iPhone 14 instances to see in case you’ll as soon as once more need to shell out for defense once you improve.
The dummy handsets have been 3D printed from what’s considered CAD recordsdata for the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Professional Max. They have been purchased from “Alibaba sources” and present the placements of various components on every handset – such because the digital camera bump and facet buttons.
Mac Otakara, which acquired the mockups, then examined them with instances for his or her respective present fashions to see which could match without having a alternative. The dangerous information is that just one appears to be suitable.
The Japanese web site discovered that the usual iPhone 15 struggled to suit into an iPhone 13/14 case as, whereas the digital camera unit within the rear is analogous and in roughly the identical place, the housing measurement of the telephone itself is 1mm thicker so can’t match precisely. There are points with each the iPhone 15 Professional and Professional Max fashions too.
They technically match into their respective instances however the 15 Professional’s digital camera unit appears slightly too excessive up so can’t sit flush inside the opening of a 14 Professional case. As well as, the amount buttons don’t match within the instances for neither the Professional or Professional Max.
The one mannequin that does appear to suit a present era case is the iPhone 15 Plus.
After all, as these are 3D printed mockups, made out of printable materials, the measurements won’t be precise to a manufacturing mannequin, so the 1mm right here or there is likely to be barely out. Nonetheless, it would not be too far a stretch to think about that instances will not be suitable between completely different generations of Apple units – they typically aren’t.
Curiously, Mac Oktakara additionally means that the shows on the Professional and Professional Max shall be barely smaller, so display protectors is likely to be incompatible too. We’ll have to attend for additional leaks to search out out extra.
