The new iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are practically identical to last year’s models, but Apple has made several small yet significant changes. Specifically, the company has done away with the proprietary Lightning connector and the silent mode switch, which has been a part of every iPhone model since the beginning.
The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max have a redesigned body with smoother edges and a titanium construction. As a result, the side frame now has a distinctive metallic texture instead of the glossy finish seen in previous models. As mentioned earlier, Apple has replaced the proprietary silent mode switch with a programmable button for quick access to various functions. So now, a long press can still activate or deactivate the silent mode, while a single touch can be used to launch the camera, microphone, flashlight, translator, and more.
The heart of these smartphones is the A17 Pro, the industry’s first processor manufactured using a 3-nanometer process and containing 19 billion transistors. It features a six-core CPU and a six-core GPU. The GPU is now 20% faster and supports ray tracing at the hardware level. The presentation showcased exclusive visual effects in popular games such as Genshin Impact and Honkai Star Rail, and also announced the release of Resident Evil 4 Remake, Resident Evil Village, and the new Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which will be available on the iPhone in the first half of next year. Additionally, the new product allows you to play Death Stranding.
The main camera still has a 48-megapixel resolution, but the sensor itself is now larger, which enables it to capture more light thanks to the increased size of the 2.44-micron pixels and the f/1.78 lens aperture. You can now take HEIF photos in full 48-megapixel resolution, and when lighting conditions are insufficient, the smartphones can take 24-megapixel photos, ensuring greater detail. Additionally, the main camera now supports shooting at three popular focal lengths: 24mm, 28mm, and 35mm. The use of an anti-reflective coating on all lenses is also specified.
The ultra-wide-angle camera remains at 12 megapixels with no changes to the sensor or lens. The iPhone 15 Pro’s TV camera also remains unchanged (12 megapixels and 3x zoom). However, the iPhone 15 Pro Max model features a camera with a periscope lens that provides 5x optical zoom with an equivalent focal length of 120mm and an aperture of f/2.8. Additionally, this camera utilizes the most advanced stabilization system in smartphones, featuring three-dimensional matrix shift.
Owners of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will also have the ability to capture spatial videos, which can be viewed using the Apple Vision Pro mixed reality headset.
To transfer your footage quickly, the new iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max utilize the USB Type-C connector of the USB 3 standard, boasting a throughput of up to 10 Gbps.
The price of the iPhone 15 Pro remains unchanged, starting at $999 for the 128GB version. The larger iPhone 15 Pro Max now has 256GB in its base configuration and is priced at $1,199, the same as the iPhone 14 Pro Max with the same amount of memory. The new devices will be available for purchase on September 22.
