iPhone 15 Pro Bezel Reduction Tech To Be Used In Future iPads As Well
Apple is set to announce the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max later this year and a new report suggests that they will have the thinnest bezels yet. What’s more, is that this tech will be used to reduce the bezel in future iPads as well.
Writing in the weekly Power On newsletter Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says that Apple will use a new low-injection pressure over-molding, or “LIPO” display technology to shrink the iPhone 15 Pro bezels down to 1.5 millimeters (from about 2.2 millimeters on current iPhones).
Gurman goes on to say that “LIPO was first used in the Apple Watch Series 7 to make that device’s borders thinner and increase the size of the display. And Apple plans to eventually bring the feature to the iPad as well, I’m told.” It isn’t clear when the iPad will get that same technology, however.
The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are getting other big upgrades, too. The USB-C port is of course on the way, while a new titanium construction will make for a premium finish and feel in the hand. A new Action button will also arrive, replacing the mute switch.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max is also expected to be the first iPhone to get a periscope camera, offering much-improved zoom capabilities.
All four new iPhone 15 models are expected to be unveiled in September alongside the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2.
