Apple's 5G iPhone 15, which was released in September 2023, was released together with the iOS 17 version. It is still possible to use NFC for the iPhone 15 generation.
Furthermore, the iPhone remains available in 126 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB storage options. The 6.1'' display with a resolution of 2556 x 1179 pixels at 460 ppi also remains almost the same. The dimensions of the smartphone are therefore: 147.6 x (H) 71.6 (W) x 7.8 mm (D) with a weight of 171 g. In addition, there are new design colors, namely light pastel shades, in which the model can be purchased.
Now the normal iPhone 15 model also has Dynamic Island, which was previously only reserved for the Pro model. Here, live activity is displayed directly on the screen at the top center when you unlock your phone. A USB-C port also replaces the USB Lightning port.
With an advanced dual-camera system, the iPhone 15 can now achieve even better photos. The system consists of a 48 MP main camera and an ultra-wide-angle camera. Apple promises next-generation photos with a newly added focus and depth control.
An A16 Bionic chip is installed in the iPhone 15, which grants better performance in graphics-intensive games. Overall, it consists of an octa-core processor, a 5-core GPU and a RAM of 6 GB.
Differences compared to the previous series (iPhone 14):
- Dynamic Island
- better camera (previously 12 MP) with next generation portraits through focus and depth control
- better processor
- USB-C instead of Lightning connector
