Apple had already announced that the Lightning connector on the iPhone was going to be replaced with a USB-C port.

If you’ve had the impression that Apple’s iPhones over the past few years have not altered noticeably from one model year to the next, the iPhone 15 could be the solution to your problem. According to a fresh report from Bloomberg, the tech giant is reportedly planning to make a number of significant modifications to its upcoming iPhone lineup.

Mark Gurman, a reporter for Bloomberg, discussed the upcoming iPhone 15 range and the changes that Apple enthusiasts might anticipate in the most recent episode of Power On. Gurman claims that the iPhone 15 Pro series will have frames made of titanium, which will result in the device being both thinner and more durable.

According to Gurman, the new screen innovation that will be utilized on the 15 Pro displays will result in thinner bezels. This new screen technology was reportedly first employed on the Series 7 version of the Apple Watch to render the bezels on the wearable device thinner.

Earlier in 2018, it was reported on MacRumors that there had been leaks purporting to show the glass on the front of the iPhone 15 pro.

Gurman also claims that the normal iPhone 15 lineup will feature the A16 chipset (the same technology in the iPhone 14 Pro as well as 14 Pro Max) and will forego the notch in preference for Dynamic Island, a fresh display notch that appeared in the 14 Pro line a year ago.

In addition, Gurman confirms what was previously mentioned in other rumors, stating how the iPhone 15 will be the initial device to offer charging through USB-C. There have been persistent speculations over the past few years that Apple may abandon its patented charging mechanism, lightning, in preference for the more universal USB-C port.

Greg Joswiakt, senior vice president of worldwide marketing for Apple, confirmed the addition of USB-C support for the iPhone in an interview with the Wall Street Journal in October of 2017. This was a direct response to a new law passed by the European Union that, by the year 2024, will require all cell phones, , and tablets that require a physical adapter to use USB-C.
