Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman previously claimed that Apple plans to stop using stainless steel in the iPhone 15 Pro models in favor of a new titanium body. This will make the upcoming phone more durable while reducing its overall weight. According to Gurman, Apple may launch the iPhone 15 series at its September 12 event.

Meanwhile, reports say the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will be available in black, blue, green, pink, and yellow. The company is expected to equip all iPhone 15 models with a USB Type-C port, replacing its proprietary Lightning port. All four models are said to feature the dynamic island introduced on last year’s Pro model.

With the addition of the USB Type-C port, the iPhone 15 series of smartphones is finally expected to support faster data transfer speeds – if reports claiming to support Thunderbolt/USB 4 connections are accurate, the phones could offer transfer speeds of up to 40Gbps. The phones are also expected to support up to 35W wired charging via a modern USB connector.
