The two high-end flagship smartphones from Apple, the Pro version of iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Max, were unveiled in September 2023 and are available for purchase alongside the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus. A speedier A17 chip, a better display, more sophisticated camera technology, and other features not found in the regular iPhone 15 devices are just a few of the additional features offered in the iPhone 15 Pro versions.
The new Pro models are identical in design to the iPhone 14 Pro models, with the same 6.1- and 6.7-inch sizes available. However, there are several significant modifications. Apple is employing a new titanium alloy frame, which is also used for spaceships, in place of stainless steel. The new titanium colors available include white, black, natural, and blue.
Together with a new matte, brush texture, the titanium includes an internal aluminum frame that enhances heat dissipation and the back glass’s repairability. Additionally, Apple made design changes that resulted in a more rounded frame and thinner display bezels. Apple’s Ceramic Shield substance, which the company claims is the strongest glass used in a smartphone, continues to shield the front of the iPhone.
With a 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate and Always-On display technology, Apple is sticking with the same Super Retina XDR Display as the previous year. The resolution of the iphone 15 pro is 2556×1179, whilst the iPhone 15 Pro Max boasts a resolution of 2796×1290. There are no modifications to the display other than the slenderized bezels, and the Dynamic Island is still present at the top.
The models feature a USB-C connector with USB 3 transfer speeds of up to 10Gb/s in place of a lightning port. The iPhone, iPad, and Mac can all be charged using the same USB-C cable because that’s how charging is now done. An iPhone can be used to directly charge AirPods or an Apple Watch via the USB-C connector. Apple has introduced support for Qi2 wireless charging and is still offering 15W MagSafe charging.
The mute switch has been replaced with an Action button that can be customized and is modeled after the Action button on the Apple Watch Ultra. It can be configured to perform a variety of tasks, like opening the camera, enabling the flashlight, making a voice memo, or starting a shortcut. To provide visual feedback and haptic feedback, the Action button integrates with the Dynamic Island.
When a human or pet enters the frame or you tap to focus, portrait shots are now automatically taken. This means that even if you do not choose portrait mode, you may still modify the image’s depth and focal point after it has been taken. Better low-light performance, vibrant colors, and crisper detail are all present in the images. When viewed in the Photos app, night mode is crisper than ever, and Smart HDR 5 captures subjects and backgrounds with more realistic skin tones as well as brighter highlights, richer mid-tones, and deeper shadows. A newly designed Ultra Wide camera allows for increased light intake. The Pro Max features an improved 5x Telephoto lens that employs a new tetraprism design, whereas the Pro still has the same 3x Telephoto lens. For crisper images, Apple unveiled a new optical image stabilization technology with an autofocus 3D sensor-shift module.
