Apple has created new type of case material for iPhone 15, leather cases will no longer be available
Apple is rumored to be ditching traditional leather iPhone cases for its upcoming iPhone 15 lineup. Instead, they are opting for an environmentally friendly alternative. Recent leaked images circulating on social media suggest that Apple is preparing to introduce a new type of case material that mimics the look and feel of leather without using animal products.
Serial leakers, known as @MajinBuOfficial and @DuanRui, shared images on Twitter, originally sourced from Weibo, claiming to showcase Apple’s official leather-alternative cases. These cases are said to be constructed from a blend of eco-friendly materials with a smaller carbon footprint than traditional cowhide leather. However, detailed information about these materials remains scarce. It’s important to note that the colors displayed in the leaked images may not necessarily represent Apple’s final product offerings.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard whispers of Apple phasing out leather cases. Multiple sources have previously suggested that leather cases won’t be part of the iPhone 15 accessory lineup. This growing consensus among leakers gives credibility to the rumor.
Apple initially introduced leather cases back in 2013 alongside the iPhone 5S. Over the years, these cases received periodic updates, including new color options and minor design tweaks like the addition of aluminum buttons and support for MagSafe.
As we await official confirmation, it’s expected that Apple will unveil its new lineup of iPhone 15 cases alongside the announcement of the iPhone 15 series. This highly anticipated event is scheduled for September 12.
Apple has officially announced that the iPhone 15 will be launched on September 12, 2023. The event will take place at Apple Park in Cupertino, California, and will be livestreamed on Apple’s website and YouTube channel.
The iPhone 15 is expected to be a minor update over the iPhone 14, with some new features and improvements. The most notable change is the switch to a USB-C charging port, which is required by the European Union for all mobile phones sold in the region starting in 2024. The iPhone 15 is also expected to have a new A16 Bionic chip, a slightly larger battery, and improved cameras
Along with the iPhone 15, Apple is also expected to launch the Apple Watch Series 9 and a new version of the AirPods. The Apple Watch Series 9 is expected to have a new design and improved health tracking features. The new AirPods are expected to have a longer battery life and improved sound quality.
The iPhone 15 launch event will be Apple’s first major event since the Worldwide Developers Conference in June. The company is expected to announce a number of new products and services at the event, including the iPhone 15, Apple Watch Series 9, and AirPods.
