It is no longer a secret that the upcoming iPhone 15 will have a much thinner bezel compared to its predecessors. Yet, a recent report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman gives us a new insight into how Apple will do this through a new process interestingly called “LIPO.”
According to previous reports, the new bezel size of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models will hit 1.5 millimeters, a huge change from the current 2.2 millimeters size we have now. This will reportedly be possible through a process called low-injection pressure over-molding. In his Power On newsletter, Gurman stressed that this process had been used for Apple Watch Series 7.
This year, two of the biggest changes to the 15 line will get Apple closer to that dream iPhone. The standard iPhone 15 models will trade in the notch for the Dynamic Island, while the Pro and Pro Max displays will be made with a new technology: low-injection pressure over-molding, or “LIPO” as it’s dubbed inside Apple.
That new process will shrink the border size around the display to 1.5 millimeters (from about 2.2 millimeters on current iPhones). LIPO was first used in the Apple Watch Series 7 to make that device’s borders thinner and increase the size of the display.
On the other hand, given that Apple is already applying the LIPO process on the iPhone 15, Gurman said that a source shared that “Apple plans to eventually bring the feature to the iPad as well.”
