The Pro models of the iPhone 15 series will reportedly be lighter than their iPhone 14 counterparts. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the new Pro smartphones will be 10% lighter than current Pro units.
This lighter weight is attributed to Apple‘s work with the iPhone 15 Pro’s new frame made of titanium. As previous reports have shared, introducing the new material would make the models lighter. However, Gurman made some specific claims this week about the matter.
With this, if the “10%” claim would really be observed, it means that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max would weigh 185 grams and 216 grams since the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max weigh 206 grams and 240 grams, respectively.
This is impressive since we are now in the era where new iPhone models usually gain weight due to the addition of better hardware components. This proves how significant the effect of the titanium frames is in dropping the unnecessary weight of the iPhones.
Nonetheless, the use of a better chip, the 3-nanometer A17 chip, has also likely allowed Apple to dismiss the need for a bigger battery while ensuring better battery consumption of the device. If this is the case, we’re probably getting a battery nowhere far from what we have now in iPhone 14, albeit the new chip will allow better battery management.
