No matter the amount of smartphones launched by Apple, the latest model always captures our attention. This past September, Apple has recently launched 4 models of the iPhone 15 at the same time: the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. With its more affordable price as compared to the Pro models, let’s get to know more about the two starting models, iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, and the features it has to surprise us!
Regarding design, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus may not blow you away as you unbox it as it looks almost identical to the previous model at first glance. However, if you start focusing on the details, you will come to a realization that a lot has changed.
The biggest difference from the iPhone 14 is the new rounded edges that come with a phone body made from aerospace grade aluminum, providing a good sense of touch and seamlessness throughout the entire device when held – this differs from the squared edges present in the previous model. Furthermore, the most important aspect is that the weight of the phone is much lighter.
Previously only available on the Pro models, Apple has now included the Dynamic Island feature on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus – Apple’s intelligent fix for the notch space that is needed for speakers and the front camera. The notch is replaced with a display area that is adjusted according to the application or content we are using. For example, when listening to music, you can control, play, pause, or select the next song without having to enter the music streaming application. Furthermore displaying a countdown when the timer is turned on, real-time status updates on food delivery applications, maps, and other applications that support Dynamic Island further enhances convenience.
The hassle of having to carry multiple charging cables or picking up the wrong charger is no longer a problem as the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus has switched over to using a USB-C port that is considered an internationally-accepted standard for charging and data transfer today. With one charger, you’ll now be able to charge both your smartphone (this includes Android devices) and iPad.
The main camera on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus has a resolution of up to 48MP; no matter if you are taking photographs or videos, the result is sharper and more detailed due to the Quad-pixel sensor. Furthermore, the 100% Focus Pixels helps with faster autofocus and to take better photos in low light. It also comes with a 2x Telephoto lens that can optically zoom up to 3 levels: 0.5x, 1x, and 2x.
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus come with a second-generation Ultra-Wideband Chip that allows us to search for locations at a range that is 3 times wider via the new feature, Precision Finding for Find My Friends. An example of how this feature can be beneficial is locating your friends when having trouble finding them at a concert or crowded event; you won’t have to find a designated meet-up spot anymore!
A16 Bionic Chip
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus comes with the A16 Bionic Chip and 6-core CPU that consists of 2 high-performance cores that use 20% less power, and 4 highly energy-efficient cores; the result is a fast and energy-saving smartphone.
Additionally, there is also a 5-core GPU with 50% more memory bandwidth allowing for smooth graphics that gamers would love, as well as a 16-core Neural Engine that can process nearly 17 trillion transactions per second making processing even faster.
All of these features mentioned are Apple’s latest updates to the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus where it is undeniable that even the entry-level version already sounds captivating.
