iPhone 15 Pro Max finish in grade 5 titanium against stainless steel

iPhone 15 Pro features a grade 5 titanium finish that is stronger yet lighter than stainless steel

The standard iPhone 15 models that launch later this year will feature several significant upgrades over the iPhone 14. The device has been reported to be in line with the “Pro” models as all four models are expected to house a Dynamic Island display. However, Apple is also planning to further upgrade the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max to position them as high-end models. Earlier this year it was reported that the iPhone 15 Pro would feature a titanium finish as opposed to the stainless steel of the iPhone 14 Pro. A leaker is now suggesting that the iPhone 15 Pro models will use a grade 5 titanium finish which has various advantages over stainless steel.

That’s why Grade 5 titanium on iPhone 15 Pro will be superior to stainless steel on iPhone 14 Pro

A leaker by name Unknownz21 on Twitter suggests that the iPhone 15 Pro models will use grade 5 titanium (Ti-6AI-4V) instead of stainless steel. Titanium offers several advantages over stainless steel, which will make the iPhone 15 Pro models far superior in terms of build quality and durability. If Apple moves forward with titanium on the iPhone 15 Pro, the company may use stainless steel on standard iPhone models in the future.

If Apple keeps up with its trend, the company usually cuts the technology down to its relatively less expensive iPhone models after introducing a new one. For example, the company has started using different chips in its standard and “Pro” iPhone models. The iPhone 14 features an A15 Bionic chip, while the iPhone 15 Pro features an A16 Bionic chip. This year, the iPhone 15 will house Apple’s A16 Bionic chipset, while “Pro” models will embark on the 3nm A17 Bionic chip. This means that Apple will use the A17 Bionic next year on the standard iPhone 16 models.

That said, the company will be offering stainless steel on standard iPhone models in the future, as it chooses to use Grade 5 titanium on the iPhone 15 Pro models. As for the benefits, the Grade 5 titanium on the iPhone 15 Pro will improve the durability of the device as it is much stronger than stainless steel. This means that the device will be able to withstand drops and damage better than stainless steel.

Additionally, grade 5 titanium is also more resistant to corrosion than stainless steel. Overall this material advantage is associated with the longevity of the device. If you plan to use the iPhone 15 for years, it will last for years before the metal starts peeling. Take note that corrosion is something a user shouldn’t worry about as most of us will make a case of it anyway. However, it is always crucial to have availability and not use it rather than not having it.

Finally, while grade 5 titanium is stronger, it is also lighter than stainless steel. It will contribute to a lightweight design compared to the iPhone 14 Pro models. The iPhone 14 Pro Max is a heavy device by all standards, even heavier than most Android phones on the market. From now on, a grade 5 titanium finish on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will make a lot of sense.

However, there are some drawbacks associated with it as well. For example, grade 5 titanium is more expensive than stainless steel, and the higher cost will be reflected in the price of the iPhone 15 Pro models. The iPhone 15 Pro models are already reported to have a higher price tag. Additionally, even Grade 5 aluminum is not widely available compared to stainless steel, which could lead to long-term shortages.

The iPhone 15 Pro models will boast a premium design over standard models, and prices are expected to jump $100 to $200 this year. Apple will announce the new models later this year alongside the Apple Watch Series 9. It was previously reported that the iPhone 15 Pro models would face “serious shortcomings” and the titanium finish may be why.
