2023 is shaping to be a big year for Apple's biggest and best iPhone. The so-called iPhone 15 Ultra is expected to offer a lot, and this new concept did just up the ante.

The iPhone 15 Ultra is expected to replace the iPhone 14 Pro Max at the top of Apple's lineup. We're expecting all kinds of things, including a new periscope camera for improved zoom. But there is also talk of new titanium sides and a return to the curved edges. And that's where this concept kicks into gear.

Created by Twitter user @Shaileshhari03, the renders show us an iPhone 15 Ultra — as it's imagined, at least — and it looks absolutely stunning.

All the curves

We've been hearing rumors of a new titanium construction and curved glass for a few months. However, the iPhone 11 was the last to have curved front and back glass, and the current iPhone 14 lineup is very flat. We're big fans of both, but there is no denying that these renders give us a glimpse of just how gorgeous a modern iPhone could be if given just a hint of a curve here and there.

It's impossible to say whether this is the iPhone 15 we'll see come September time, but the rumors do absolutely point in that direction. We're also here for the color options shown in these renders, although we will never stop asking for a bright red Pro iPhone.

Make it so, Apple. Take. Our. Money.

Until then, we'll wait for more leaks ahead of Apple's September unveiling — assuming the usual release cadence is adhered to.

Other likely features and specs we can expect from the iPhone 15 Pro models include a new A17 chip and support for the improved Wi-Fi 6E specification.
