In a surprising turn of events, leaked images of the upcoming iPhone 15 have surfaced online, showcasing a new USB-C port module. The images, released by an anonymous user going by the name Majin Bu, provide a first glimpse into the design of the highly anticipated smartphone. The leaks suggest that Apple is finally embracing the USB Type-C standard, a move that the company has been hinting at for quite some time.
The leaked images, which were posted on the website X, show a close-up of the USB-C port module for the iPhone 15. The module appears to be in a new, vibrant color scheme, with hints of light blue and green. This has sparked speculation among Apple enthusiasts about the possibility of a green-colored iPhone 15 being released.
However, Majin Bu quickly clarified that the presence of a green USB-C port does not necessarily mean that Apple will release a green iPhone. Instead, it is believed that Apple might introduce a green variant of the iPhone 15 during the fall season, a time when the company historically unveils new color options to boost sales.
Traditionally, Apple announces its next-generation iPhones in September. However, renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently wrote on Medium that the company has already started shipping a large number of phones this week, which could help alleviate concerns about product delays.
In addition to the leaked images, 9to5Mac reports that Apple is discontinuing its leather case lineup for iPhones this year. Instead, the company is said to be introducing a new alternative leather case called the “Woven-Textured Style.” This decision is reportedly motivated by environmental concerns and the need for more durable case options. The information comes from posts on Weibo by user Uncle Pan and user DuanRui.
As for the exact date of the iPhone 15 launch event, we will have to wait and see. It remains to be seen if the rumored leaks from earlier will align with the actual unveiling. One thing, however, is certain – the iPhone 15 will come with a hefty price tag, as expected.
The leaked image of the USB-C port module has sparked excitement and anticipation among Apple fans and tech enthusiasts. It offers a glimpse into the future of iPhones, showcasing Apple’s long-awaited move towards USB Type-C connectivity. While the leaks have not been confirmed by Apple, they provide an intriguing look at what could be the next big thing in the world of smartphones. Stay tuned for more updates on the iPhone 15 and its groundbreaking features.
