As early as September 2022, analyst Ross Young from Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), predicted that the new Dynamic Island function of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max would also be available the following year on the "non-Pro" iPhone 15 scheduled for next September. A prediction reiterated several times.
iPhone 15 series without notch…?
The latest leak gives even more credence to the rumor. Indeed, the blogger @TechMeow on the Chinese social network Weibo, got his hands on a photo of the layers of glass that would equip the iPhone 15, 15 Pro and Pro Max (from left to right in the image). We can clearly see that the iPhone 15 no longer has the notch of the iPhone 14, replacing the double perforation of its larger Pro brothers.
iPhone 15/15 Plus models limited to 60 Hz, without Always On mode
We can also see even thinner edges, and the source adds that the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will be limited to a 60z refresh rate, and therefore will not have the Always On feature of the Pro models. Source: myfixguide
