If you’re not living under a rock, you’re likely aware that Apple has just launched the highly-anticipated iPhone 15 series. The launch, as expected, was met with mixed reactions, but it has definitively clarified the new lineup’s features and dispelled wild speculations.
The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max come wrapped in aerospace-grade titanium, an innovation that not only maintains the devices’ structural integrity but also reduces their overall weight, making them the lightest Pro-model iPhones to date. As expected, Apple has also paid attention to aesthetics, as these devices boast a refined brush texture, contoured edges, and a slimmer profile compared to their predecessors.
In a notable departure from previous iPhones, Apple has replaced the single-function switch on previous iPhones with an “Action button.” This button is customizable, allowing users to set shortcuts for features such as Voice Memos, Focus Mode, Camera, and more.
Apple is also raising the bar for performance with the iPhone 15 Pro devices, thanks to the new A17 Pro chip. Data from Apple’s tests revealed that the new chip will deliver 10-percent faster CPU performance, a 20% improvement in GPU performance, and introduces hardware-accelerated ray tracing. Enhanced ray tracing is expected to deliver smoother graphics and enhanced AR applications, potentially accelerating mainstream adoption of the Apple Vision Pro.
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will also adopt the Dynamic Island feature introduced in the iPhone 14 Pro models. These devices also come equipped with a 48MP Main camera, 2x Telephoto option, and the A16 chip previously introduced in the iPhone 14 Pro models.
