Apple unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, the iPhone 15, along with its more powerful variant, the iPhone 15 Pro. The new devices boast a number of features that make them stand out from the previous generation and the competition.
Here are five reasons why you should consider getting the iPhone 15 or the iPhone 15 Pro.
1. USB-C port
One of the most noticeable changes in the iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Pro is the switch from the Lightning port to the USB-C port. This means that you can use the same cable and charger for your iPhone, iPad, Mac, and other devices that support USB-C. You can also enjoy faster data transfer and charging speeds with USB-C, as well as more compatibility with accessories and peripherals.
However, take note that USB-C ports of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro are not created equal. But they’re upgrades nonetheless.
2. Dynamic island
Apple brought the Dynamic Island to the iPhone 15. The notification feature first appeared on the iPhone 14 Pro models. It is now included on the latest iPhones.
The Dynamic Island notification system is a redesigned notch at the top of the screen that shows important alerts and live activities. You can swipe or tap on the Dynamic Island to access directions, music controls, sports scores, and more.
3. Better build
The iPhone 15 Pro is the first iPhone to feature a titanium build, which makes it more durable and resistant to scratches and dents. Titanium is also lighter than stainless steel, which means that the iPhone 15 Pro is not only stronger but also lighter than the previous models. The titanium build also gives the iPhone 15 Pro a premium and sleek look that matches its performance.
Moreover, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max have Ceramic Shield glass on both the front and back. Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 has a Ceramic Shield glass on the front, but the back is made of color-infused glass.
4. Better cameras
The iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Pro both have improved cameras that offer better quality and versatility for capturing photos and videos. The iPhone 15 has a dual-camera system with a 48MP main and an 8MP ultra-wide lens, while the iPhone 15 Pro has a triple-camera system with a 48MP main, a 12MP ultra-wide, and a 12MP telephoto with 3x optical zoom for the Pro and up to 5x optical zoom for the Pro Max. Both devices also have a 12MP front-facing camera for selfies and FaceTime.
The cameras on the iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Pro have several features that enhance their performance, such as optical image stabilization, night mode, portrait mode, HDR, panorama, slow-motion, time-lapse, and more. The iPhone 15 Pro also has a LiDAR scanner that enables faster autofocus, better depth sensing, and more realistic augmented reality.
5. Apple A17 Pro Bionic
The iPhone 15 Pro is powered by the Apple A17 Pro Bionic chip, which is the most advanced processor ever in an iPhone. The A17 Pro Bionic is a six-core chip that consists of two high-performance cores and four high-efficiency cores, along with a six-core graphics processor and a neural engine. The A17 Pro Bionic delivers up to 50% faster performance and up to 40% lower power consumption than the previous generation. The A17 Pro Bionic also supports advanced features such as machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, and more.
The iPhone 15 is powered by the Apple A16 Bionic chip, which is similar to the A17 Pro Bionic but with slightly lower clock speeds and graphics capabilities.
