Another CAD model of the iPhone 15 Pro Max has been leaked by ShrimpApplePro, alongside alleged dimensions for the upcoming device, and new details about the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus.

Excited to share photos of the iPhone 15 Pro Max CAD! This one was source from a case manufacturer. I know others have already shared the 3D model, but I wanted to give you my own w/ a closer look. As promised, the most detailed!

Here are the purported dimensions of the iPhone 15 Max:
● Length: 159.86 mm
● Width: 77.58 mm
● Thickness (camera bump included): 12.02mm
● Body thickness: 8.25mm
● Camera bump from the back glass to the camera lens: 3.78mm
● Camera ring diameter: 16.2 mm
● Camera lens 13 mm
● Rear camera diameter with metal ring: 16.2mm, no metal ring: 13.8
● Lens protruding less than last year ( from 2.33 to 1.73mm)
● Camera plateau protruding more than last year (1.85 to 2.05mm)
● Rear flash diameter: 6.7 mm
● Rear flash diameter: 6.9mm (nice), Smaller than last year
● Microphone diameter: 0.75mm, Smaller than last year: 1.15 mm
● The dynamic island is the same as last year.
● Bezels: 1.55mm
● Ear piece is thinner and more refined. (There are already irl photos of it)
● Rear Camera bump is just a ~5% bigger.

Notably, ShrimpApplePro noticed what appears to be conductive padding sitting on top of the buttons.

Comparing my CAD from last year to this year, one similarity is that any new designs is highlighted. Last year it was the new display with pill+hole cutout, and this year it's the solid state button! It also have some weird objects sits on top of it but not sticking to it. When i did some inspections, I think I found what it is! And it's likely the conductive padding for the buttons as that will be fused in phone cases and will help it receive full gestures or actions/sensitivity as some previous rumors mentioned.

Going to check on the CAD models for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, the leaker observed this same padding present. This suggests that the standard model iPhones may also get solid state buttons but not the unified volume button or the solid state mute button.

And guess what phone also have the buttons padding? The normal iPhone 15 and 15 Plus! They also have them, So the normal version will have solid state buttons but not the conjoined volume buttons, with the old mute switch.

Apple isn't expected to launch its new iPhone series until this fall; however, we've been seeing a lot of early leaks. The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro are both expected to get Dynamic Island and Ceramic Shield but rumors suggest the iPhone 15 Pro will have thinner bezels, solid state buttons, and 8GB of RAM.

The iPhone 15 Pro will likely utilize an A17 Bionic chip made with TSMC's 3nm process, while the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will stick with the A16 Bionic and 6GB of RAM. All four models will purportedly have a USB-C port and Qualcomm's 5G Snapdragon X70 modem.
