What's New in the iPhone 15: Everything Apple Changed VS the iPhone 14

Apple's iPhone 15 Unveils a Game-Changing Era

Say farewell to the mute switch and the Lightning port – Apple's new iPhone 15 lineup ushers in an era of innovation. Among these, the Pro models steal the spotlight. In recent years, iPhone releases may have felt somewhat iterative, with slight camera improvements and performance boosts. However, Apple's latest offering, the iPhone 15 series, boasts once-in-a-decade changes that set them apart from a sea of visually similar predecessors. The company made its grand reveal at the annual September event in Cupertino, California, introducing the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. From the adoption of USB-C to the elimination of the notorious notch, let's delve into the top features of this groundbreaking iPhone lineup.

USB-C Takes Center Stage

After a remarkable 11-year run, the Lightning charging port bows out to USB-C—a reversible charging port available on a multitude of devices, from Apple MacBooks and iPads to Android phones and Windows laptops. Often hailed as the "universal connector," USB-C allows you to use the same cable for most of your devices, simplifying your charging setup. Additionally, USB-C offers faster data transfer capabilities. However, the standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus limit data transfer speeds to 480 megabits per second. For those seeking the full potential, the iPhone 15 Pro models unlock speeds of up to 10 Gigabits per second thanks to USB 3 support. Apple includes a braided, color-matching USB-C to USB-C cable in the box, albeit with the 480 Mbps transfer speed limitation. To tap into the Pro models' full potential, you'll need to invest in a compatible cable.

Regrettably, Apple has not announced any improvements in charging speeds, with the official specification remaining at 20 watts. While Apple began incorporating USB-C into its devices in 2015, it continued to collect licensing fees for the Lightning port, which may have contributed to its longevity. Nevertheless, a ruling by the European Union mandated USB-C on all new phones, tablets, and cameras by the end of 2024, leading to this pivotal change.

Dynamic Island and the Demise of the Notch

All four iPhone 15 models now feature the Dynamic Island, initially introduced and limited to last year's iPhone 14 Pro models. This pill-shaped cutout at the top of the display houses the TrueDepth selfie camera and replaces the infamous notch. True to its name, the Dynamic Island is adaptive, serving almost as a second screen. It provides at-a-glance information, such as your Uber driver's arrival time, alarms, timers, flight details, and live sports scores, without the need to open separate apps.

Size and Color Options

The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus retain the same dimensions as their predecessors, with screen sizes of 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches, respectively. These models come in an array of colors, including black, blue, green, yellow, and pink. Aside from the Dynamic Island and USB-C, these models remain relatively unchanged. They continue to sport 60-Hz OLED screens, lagging behind other phones in their price range that offer smoother 120-Hz refresh rates. Powered by the A16 chipset and equipped with a 48-megapixel primary camera, they aim to capture more detail. The 12-megapixel ultrawide camera receives enhancements through Apple's improved Photonic computational photography engine.

Pro Models: A Step Above

*Apple has reserved a slew of upgrades for the Pro models to justify their moniker. These models run on the new A17 Pro chipset, boasting 10 percent faster performance cores and a 2X faster neural engine. The graphics processor unit undergoes a significant overhaul, with a 20 percent speed increase over its predecessor. This revamped GPU promises detailed mobile game environments with lower power consumption and hardware-accelerated ray tracing that's four times faster. As a result, the iPhone 15 Pro is capable of running console games like Resident Evil: Village, and upcoming titles like Assassin's Creed Mirage will have dedicated iPhone versions alongside their console and PC counterparts.*

The Pro models retain the coveted 120-Hz ProMotion screen while refining the design by reducing bezels and introducing a titanium frame for added durability and reduced weight.

Periscope Zoom and the Action Button

*Exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro Max is a periscope zoom camera, a technology previously seen in Samsung's Galaxy Ultra phones and Google's Pixel 7 Pro. This periscope zoom camera offers 5X optical zoom, enabling high-quality long-distance shots. The smaller iPhone 15 Pro settles for a 3X zoom.*

*Another Pro model exclusive is the Action Button, akin to the customizable button on the Apple Watch Ultra. On the iPhone, it replaces the classic mute switch, allowing users to customize actions such as muting the phone, activating the flashlight, or taking photos with the camera open.*

Sustainability Initiatives

Apple's commitment to sustainability shines through in its September event. The company is phasing out leather cases and straps for its devices, introducing a sustainable fabric material called FineWoven, and opting for recycled and plant-based materials over leather.

With the iPhone 15 series, Apple embarks on a transformative journey, bidding farewell to familiar features while introducing groundbreaking innovations. These changes promise to reshape the iPhone experience, setting a new benchmark for the tech industry.
