# **iPhone 15 Pro/Pro Max will stop using steel frame** **Leaked information claims that Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 Pro series will use titanium bezel instead of steel like previous generations .** According to a leaker *ShrimpApplePro*, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will have titanium bezels instead of steel like the previous generation Pro series. This rumor also coincides with information from Jeff Pu, a technology market analyst at Haitong International Securities – an investment fund based in Hong Kong (China). Specifically, the iPhone 15 Pro series will be the first iPhone generation to be equipped with a titanium frame with rounded edges. This material will help the new series become lighter and more durable. If this information is correct, the iPhone 15 Pro / Pro Max will be the line that marks the end of the stainless steel bezel, first equipped on the iPhone X (launched in 2017). The titanium frame is being used by Apple on the Apple Watch product line, starting with the Apple Watch series 5 launched in 2019. This is not the first time the company has used this material for its devices. In 2001, the company’s PowerBook G4 model had a case made of titanium but was judged to be poorly finished and dull, so it was later replaced with an aluminum case. Typically, the Apple Watch series 7, the weights for 2 sizes 41 mm and 45 mm, respectively, with aluminum, steel, and titanium frames are 32, 42.3, 37 g and 38.8, 51.5, 45, respectively. 1 g. Despite having the same dimensions, the steel version is the heaviest frame material, followed by titanium and finally aluminum. In May 2022, Apple was granted a patent for a glossy surface finish for titanium with illustrations of devices such as the iPhone, iPad, and MacBook. Recent iPhone generations are often equipped with aluminum frames for the regular series and stainless steel for the Pro series. This means that despite the same screen size, the Pro versions are heavier than the regular version, for example, the iPhone 14 Pro (206 g) is heavier than the iPhone 14 (172 g) and the iPhone 14 Pro Max (240 g). than iPhone 14 Plus (203 g). Based on the above information, it can be seen that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max using titanium will not be lighter than the aluminum iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus. However, these two models will likely be lighter than the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
