The 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus could have some minor design updates compared to the iPhone 14 Plus, according to renders that were shared today by 9to5Mac. The images are said to be based on CAD drawings of the devices that were provided to Apple's supply chain for device manufacturing, and they follow leaks that we've previously seen for both the standard iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Pro.

Like the iPhone 15, the iPhone 15 Plus will feature a Dynamic Island instead of a notch, with Apple bringing the Dynamic Island design to the entire iPhone lineup in 2023. It will also include a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port, another change that Apple is making to all iPhone 15 devices.
The images indicate that in addition to a Dynamic Island, the iPhone 15 Plus will have slightly slimmer bezels, and there may be minor tweaks to the size and thickness of the device. 9to5Mac says that the iPhone 15 Plus CAD design features "slightly rounded edges" for a smoother transition from the front of the device to the back and a slightly thicker camera bump.

Apple's iPhone 15 Plus is expected to be identical in design and feature set to the iPhone 15, and it will continue to include a dual-lens camera with Wide and Ultra Wide lenses. The main difference between the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus is expected to be battery size, as the iPhone 15 Plus is 6.7 inches and the iPhone 15 is 6.1 inches.
Other iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus rumored features include the same A16 chip that's in the iPhone 14 Pro models, a Qualcomm X70 modem, and blue and pink color options. More on what's expected for the iPhone 15 can be found in our dedicated roundup.

Apple needs to consider bringing back iPhone Mini. It should contain iPhone 15 Plus features. It will sell very well.
15 Plus, 16 mini, 18 Plus, 20 mini…(replace your niche iPhone every four years and if necessary replace the battery in between). The costs for Apple would be reduced and this might push some users to the Pro models if waiting four years for the next Gen Plus or mini is too long so Apple wins there as well. Apple could also forget about the Plus model and update the mini every two years similar to the SE.
Drop the Pro moniker or apply it to all three models and be done with it. At present there is too much overlap.
