iPhone 15: the Dynamic Island version 2023 will integrate a proximity sensor
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 15s will all sport a Dynamic Island. However, the latter will not be quite identical to that of the iPhone 14 Pro.

Once again it’s through Mr. Ming-Chi Kuo we have a new rumor about the iPhone 15. According to the analyst, we should find Dynamic Island on the Pro and Ultra models of the brand as well as on the most affordable, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus. The notch that adapts according to use will not, however, be quite the same as last year.
The proximity sensor of the iPhone 15 will be located in the Dynamic Island, and no longer behind the screen
Me Kuo specifies in his tweet that all iPhone 15 models adopt a Dynamic Island similar to that of the iPhone 14 Pro, the difference lies in the location of the proximity sensor. On the iPhone 14 Pro, the proximity sensor is located under the screen (outside the Dynamic Island). Conversely, in the iPhone 15 series, the proximity sensor is located on the inside, with almost no change in the look of the dynamic island.
Apple would have changed supplier for its proximity sensors. In practice, however, this should have no impact for iPhone 15 users. If Apple sticks to its usual schedule, we should see the iPhone 15s on our shelves as early as next September. The 2023 range could include no less than 4 devices, if the rumor of an Ultra model were to be confirmed. Regarding their price, it is rumored that the most expensive models, the Pro, Pro Max and Ultra will be paid 9% to 18% more expensive, while the price of the entry-level models will be more affordable than that of the iPhone. 14 and current iPhone 14 Plus.
