Those eager to get their hands on the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro Max should check out a short video showing a case supposedly designed for Apple’s next flagship smartphone. This helps confirm a few details that previously leaked out.
Get ready for a USB-C port and other changes.
iPhone 15 Pro Max is only 3 months away
The Pro Max is the largest and most powerful of the iPhone lineup. The iPhone 15 version will get all the new features that leaks say are coming to the series, which is expected to launch in September.
A video of a case allegedly for the handset was posted Saturday by tipster Majin Bu on Twitter.

In it, we see a larger-than-usual opening on the bottom edge. This is apparently for the USB-C port that will replace Lightning in the iPhone 15 series.
The case makes room for the hefty camera hump that will be included in the upcoming iOS device.
It also has openings on the left edge for the solid-state capacitive mute and volume buttons that rumors said would be a signature feature of the two iPhone 15 Pro models. However, more recent reports indicate that technical problems forced Apple to shelve these in favor of traditional buttons.
A reliable source
While any leak should be regarded with skepticism, Majin Bu was the first to reveal Apple’s Stage Manager user interface for iPad. This was three months before Apple’s official announcement.
That said, there’s only so much that can be learned from a case. We won‘t have all the details of the iPhone 15 series until autumn 2023 when Tim Cook and Co. take the wraps off the new models.
