iPhone 15 display & USB-C port shown off in leaked photos
An accurate leaker has shared supposed photos of the base-model iPhone 15 display with Dynamic Island cutout and USB-C port.
The leaker known as @URedditor or Unknownz21 on Twitter is back only days after sharing a photo of the iPhone 15 Pro USB-C port. This time, they've shown how the base iPhone 15 design is similar to the iPhone 14, with some exceptions.
All iPhone 15 models are expected to adopt the new pill-and-hole cutout for the selfie camera, and the leaked photo confirms this. Apple calls the software surrounding this cutout the Dynamic Island, which displays information called Live Activities.
The images, if accurate, also confirm that the base iPhone 15 model will have USB-C as well. This change is likely as the EU has laws going into effect by 2024 that will require the more universal port on devices like iPhone.

Unknownz21 shared the images with MacRumors first, though it appears that there aren't many other details. The report adds that the iPhone 15 will have a similar design to the iPhone 14, use the A16 processor, Wi-Fi 6, and a Qualcomm X70 modem.
The leaker has previously shared an image of the iPhone 15 Pro USB-C port. Unknownz21 has a short but accurate history, having shared the "Gobi" AR codes that became App Clips in iOS 14.
The iPhone 15 lineup is expected to launch in September 2023. The high-end iPhone 15 Pro models are expected to have a new curved titanium chassis instead of stainless steel.
