iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro Weights and Measurements Leak Ahead of ‘Wonderlust’ Launch Event

iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Proand iPhone 15 Pro Max details have been leaked in a new report, shortly before the company’s September launch event titled ‘Wonderlust’. Several details about the company’s upcoming iPhone 15 series of smartphones have surfaced online over the past few months, such as the color options for the regular and Pro models, as well as their internal specifications. Now, the weight and dimensions of the upcoming iPhone 15 series have been revealed, giving us an idea of ​​what to expect from the company’s next handset.

A Mac Rumor report, citing unnamed sources, claims the iPhone 15 will measure 147.6×71.6×7.8mm and weigh 171g. These measurements are almost identical to iPhone 14, which measures 146.7×71.5×7.8mm and weighed 172g – the upcoming model is expected to weigh one gram less than its predecessor. iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will also use the same 6013 T6 aluminum material for the chassis as the 2022 model, according to the report.

On the other hand, the difference in weight for the Pro models can be more significant. According to the report, the iPhone 15 Pro will measure 146.6×70.6×8.25mm and weigh 188g – the dimensions from last year iPhone 14 Pro was 147.5×71.5×7.85mm and the handset weighed 206g. While the new model appears to be thicker, its weight is claimed to have dropped by 8.73 percent.

Corresponding iPhone 14 Pro Max that was unveiled 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 Apple’s top model will be 7.91 percent lighter than the Pro Max model launched at Apple’s ‘Far Out’ event in September 2022.

The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models are tipped to have a titanium chassis instead of the stainless steel material used on last year’s handsets. As a result, smartphones are expected to be lighter and more durable this year. Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are expected to have the same aluminum chassis, which suggests that the weight of these smartphones is unlikely to change significantly.

Last month it was predicted that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max would weigh 191g and 221g respectively due to the rumored switch to a titanium chassis. Although the weight reduction is minimal and the Pro variants will still be heavier than the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, the lighter chassis can offset the weight of a protective case on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models.
