With the iPhone 14 now on the streets, Apple fans are busy dreaming up wishlists for the iPhone 15, which we’re guessing will be released next September. And while Apple hasn’t made many changes to the overall design of its smartphones in a long time, people have some fanciful ideas about what Cupertino’s best could do with its next iterations.
Two proposals in particular caught our attention, one for a foldable iPhone 15 and another for the rumored iPhone 15 Ultra, which comes with a new always-on display on the back of the phone (f if you don’t want to wait to see if Apple releases something like these, check out the iPhone 14 best prices and the best iphone 14 cases today.
Technizo Concept (opens in a new tab), which designs 3D concepts for smartphones, offered its take on the rumored iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Ultra. In two concepts for the latter, it offers a periscope camera, a USB-C port, and more radically a new screen on the back of the phone, next to the camera array. The idea is that it would house an always-on display, somewhat resembling an Apple Watch face.
It’s an interesting idea, though some Apple fans aren’t quite sure what good it would be if the iPhone already had an always-on display. “So they add a watch to the back of the phone and bang iPhone ultra,” one person said. “The design is cool but honestly the display on the back doesn’t make sense,” someone else suggested.
Someone suggested the extra screen could be used as a backup if the main screen breaks, but that doesn’t seem like a solution Apple would go for. Still, that kind of out-of-the-box thinking may be what Apple needs to come up with a more drastic redesign amid complaints from some fans that iPhones have been following the same design for years.
The same people also came up with a concept for an iPhone 15 Flip. Although Apple has yet to follow Samsung into the foldable phone market, we have been hear rumors that it’s been running on a foldable iPhone for years. Technizo Concept suggests it’ll look something like the Galaxy Z Flip but have a thinner display and a cheaper price tag (we won’t hold our breath on the latter).
Again, a small always-on display is offered for the front of the phone. In this case, it would make more sense, allowing you to see the time and other data while the device is folded. However, many people say they don’t think they’ll see a foldable phone from Apple for at least several years.
Will we see Apple take up any of these ideas? We’re not convinced, but there are plenty of rumors that the iPhone 15 will include an Ultra variant in its lineup, like the new Apple Watch Ultra. The last iPhone 15 Ultra Rumor suggests that the device could be made of titanium instead of stainless steel. It has also been suggested that the phone could have a dual selfie camera. The wait is quite long until we find out. Until then, here are the best prices we’re seeing on the recently released iPhone 14 lineup.
