Rumors about the next line of iPhones are already numerous and full of details. The most recent account for a significant change to the construction material of the Apple iPhone 15 Promoving from stainless steel to something even more premium, titanium.
In order to further differentiate the base models – iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus – from the Pro line, the Cupertino giant will be testing new implementations for its most coveted products. Apparently, we will not only have a new construction material, but also a surprise from Apple.
Titanium structure will lighten the weight of the Apple iPhone 15 Pro
So the new iPhone 15From the early information that I have, the iPhone 15 will feature a new border design. The back edge corner (as pointed out in the images) will be rounded and not square anymore. The material also will be titanium. Still very early to take it as it is. pic.twitter.com/hbdCKUhVP9

Firstly, titanium is a metal commonly used in watchmaking in order to drastically reduce weight while maintaining the metallic touch and robustness. So far, however, we haven’t seen a similar application on mobile devices, largely due to the increased cost of this metal.
Therefore, if Apple applies this change to the iPhone 15 Pro, it will have a serious point of differentiation compared to the more affordable models in the line. In addition, the retail price is likely to increase further to accommodate the use of this new material.
For now, however, it is just a hypothesis. Incidentally, the same fo raised by the leaker known as @ShrimpApplePro, through the social network Twitter. This same source mentions yet another surprise to be applied by Apple – the reduction of margins and rounding them for a more fluid bezel.
Fitting between glass and metal will be more fluid on the iPhone 15 Pro
On the other hand, the leaker mentions the obvious by emphasizing that it is still too early to be certain. Even so, this source has already brought us true information in the past, so it is important to take their opinion into account if they are already thinking about the next iPhone.
The source even compares the implementation on the next iPhone 15 Pro to that previously used by Apple on the 5C models in order to smooth the fit of the glass with the metal. Once again, however, for now they are just rumors that need more proof.
Greater differentiation is an almost certainty for the iPhone 15
According to what was reported by one of my resources, Apple would be working on many new features that we will probably see in the future. This information should be taken as “rumor” also because I was told that the information changes often to avoid news leaks. #iphone15 pic.twitter.com/MYxdZ3IX6L

We effectively expect an increase in the gap between the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro for the reasons mentioned above. In this sense, also points out the leaker @MajinBuOfficial, other sources with good credibility with generally accurate information.
In short, we consider increased differentiation between iPhone models likely. The use of titanium, on the other hand, can be effectively achieved by the Cupertino giant in its top models.
Ultimately, for the consumer this would mean a lighter phone, but likely with a heavier impact on the wallet.
