Part 1: What's New in iPhone 15?

iPhone 15 features are summarized as below. Let's take a closer look at what's new on iPhone 15.

Design and Display

The new contoured edge on the aerospace-grade aluminum enclosure creates a nicer hand feeling than ever, and also lighter. The premium Titanium material makes iPhone 15 Pro regarded as the lightest one among the whole Pro Series. It also has the thinnest border ever on iPhone. The advanced material used in the shell of iPhone 15 effectively extends the service life of the device, which is a progress in environmental protection.

iPhone 15 uses OLED technology to make a Super Retina XDR display, which comes with thinner borders, rich color, and supports Dolby Vision. In addition, 1600 nits HDR brightness on peak brings an even brighter screen, HDR photos and videos looking better than ever. It greatly improves users' experience on the display.

iPhone camera has always been one of the bullet points for Apple. In this update, 48MP Main camera is introduced to iPhone 15, which means you can maximize resolution with a 48MP photo. In other words, more fine details of the objects can be captured. Apple also applied computational photography to the Main camera to achieve super high-resolution images. iPhone 15 Pro has an even larger sensor. 5x optical zoom at 120 mm focal length is introduced in iPhone 15 Pro, allowing users to shoot more high-quality photos and videos.

Moreover, with iPhone 15, users can take portraits without manually switching to the Portrait mode, as it can automatically detect whether there is a person in the frame and turn it into portraits later in your Photos app.

A16 Bionic is built into iPhone 15 and Plus, which was introduced on iPhone 14 Pro. And with the 5-core GPU, iPhone 15 and Plus has 50% more memory bandwidth than A15 Bionic. Meanwhile, the new generation of Apple silicon - A17 PRO, is used on iPhone 15 Pro. The Pro-class GPU highly improves performance and efficiency.
