iPhone 14 case vs iPhone 15 case: The Answer Found Here!

iPhone 14 case vs iPhone 15 case

You might be in luck if you’re OK with a slightly looser fit. If you’re upgrading to a new iPhone, you’ll likely need to get a new case, too. Every year, there’s a glimmer of hope that old cases might still work with the new iPhones, and this year isn’t any different.

While last year’s and this year’s iPhones may appear quite similar at first glance, there are some distinctions. The four models of iPhone 15 all feature new “contoured edges,” meaning that the phones’ edges now flow more seamlessly into the back. In essence, the corners and edges of the iPhone 15 (including the Pro) are more rounded than the iPhone 14 (and its counterparts). While these changes might seem subtle, they do impact how securely the cases attach.

The big difference in design only affects the Pros. The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max have a new action button instead of the old mute switch. So, in most cases, the older models might need to fit better with these new ones.

iPhone 14 and 15 dimensions

A case designed for an iPhone 14 will technically fit on an iPhone 15, but it won’t provide the snug fit you’re likely looking for.

While the iPhone 14 and 15 share functionally identical width and thickness, there’s a bit more deviation in height. The iPhone 15 is 0.03 inches taller than the iPhone 14. That’s only about the width of a credit card, but it’s enough to create a little extra play in the fit on top of the issues with the new contoured body.

Even though some differences appear minor, iPhone cases are made with such precision that even those minor differences are enough to mean cases designed for the iPhone 14 will not fit the iPhone 15.

Similar to the smaller Pro models, the dimensions of the iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 15 Pro Max are quite alike. However, the newer iPhone 15 Pro Max boasts smoother and more contoured edges, resulting in older cases not fitting as snugly. Yet, the most significant distinction is introducing a new action button in the new models, which can become partially obstructed when using an old case.
