The Apple iPhone 15 has arrived, and there are some notable changes compared to previous models. In previous years, the Pro version of the iPhone would always come with more advanced features and a higher price tag, while the standard version lagged behind. However, this year, the gap between the regular iPhone and the Pro models has narrowed.
The iPhone 15 now features a better camera, including the addition of a zoom lens that was previously missing. The device also introduces the Dynamic Island, eliminating the notch on the screen. It is worth noting that while the iPhone 15 does have a new USB port, it only supports USB 2.0, which offers slower data transfer speeds compared to the Pro model.
The iPhone 15 comes with two cameras, and the optical zoom functionality is achieved through an increased megapixel count. By using only the center 12 megapixels on the main camera, users can effectively achieve 2x optical zoom. The photo quality is sharp, although there may be slight differences compared to the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Photos and videos on the iPhone 15 look stunning on the Super Retina XDR display, which offers up to 1600 nits at peak HDR brightness and up to 2,000 nits at peak outdoor brightness, twice as bright as the previous year’s model.
Under the hood, the iPhone 15 features the A16 Bionic chip, last year’s iPhone 14 Pro chip, and a new second-gen ultra-wideband chip. The latter improves the range for finding friends with iPhones, although both parties need to have the iPhone 15 for the extended range to work.
In terms of design, the iPhone 15 doesn’t introduce any major changes, but it does feature a frosted glass back similar to the Pro models. The edges have also received a slight tweak, making the phone easier to hold.
While the iPhone 15 lacks some features found in the Pro models, such as the always-on display, it still offers significant upgrades for users with older iPhones. If you currently own an iPhone 12 or older, the iPhone 15 could be a worthwhile investment.
