iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus
Like the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models last year, the iPhone 15 will be a 6.1-inch device, while the larger iPhone 15 Plus will be a 6.7-inch device. We expect to see a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port on all of the iPhone 15 models, and the Dynamic Island is going to be available for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus in addition to the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max. That means Apple will be doing away with the notch that it has used since the iPhone X for the flagship iPhone lineup for a sleeker, less intrusive design.The most affordable among the new releases is the iPhone 15, which starts at $800 and sticks with a 6.1-inch display and two rear cameras. Then, at a $900 starting price you have the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus, which gets a bigger battery, but again only two cameras.
And then, you have the pricier Pro models, which now get new features to differentiate even more than the non-Pro ones. Both the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max have the next-gen A17 Pro chip with a bunch of improvements. The smaller 6.1-inch iPhone 15 Pro keeps the familiar triple rear camera setup, while the larger iPhone 15 Pro Max is the first iPhone ever with a folded camera with 5X native zoom level, much longer than the current 3X oneHere is a summary of the 10 biggest new iPhone 15 features:
- USB-C port replaces Lightning
- All four models use Dynamic Island
- iPhone 15 and 15 Plus powered by older A16 chip
- iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max run on newer A17 chip
- Pro models use titanium instead of stainless steel, which reduces weight
- iPhone 15 Pro models replace mute switch with new programmable Action Button
- Improved battery life on some models
- Only iPhone 15 Pro Max model gets new periscope camera with longer zoom range
- Regular iPhone 15 models get upgraded main camera with 48MP sensor
So these are just the most note-worthy new features… but there are many other smaller improvements that you should also know about. We dive deeper right below, exploring all these new features and more, so read on to find out all about the iPhone 15 family.
