iPhone 15 to have crazy-thin bezels

They're gonna be so thin, they'll break records!

Back in the mid-2000s, when designing the first iPhone, Apple’s ex-head designer Jony Ive wanted the device to be all about the screen.

In their earliest discussions, Apple’s industrial design team agreed that nothing should detract from the screen, which Ive likened to an "infinity pool," those high-end swimming pools with an invisible edge.

"We wanted to develop a product that featured and deferred to the display," he said. "Some of our early discussions about the iPhone centered on this idea of ... this infinity pool, this pond, where the display would sort of magically appear."

Ive may be finally getting his wish with the upcoming iPhone 15, which leaks suggest will have a very, very thin bezel. It’ll be the ultimate “infinity pool” phone. See our top post.

One more thing ...

And then we had our big idea... Why don't we let each element be true to itself? If the screen's flat, let it be flat. If the computer wants to be horizontal, let it be horizontal.
