Apple launched its first iPhone on June 29, 2007. Ever since then, the company has been revolutionizing the mobile phone industry. In the course of the last 16 years, Apple has continued to launch new models, each packed with new features and more advanced than its predecessor. Once again, Apple plans to take the market by storm by launching the iPhone 15. This remarkable phone is open for pre-order on September 15 and will be available in markets by September 22. Starting at Rs. 79,900. Apple’s relentless pursuit of perfection has delivered us with an iPhone 15 that promises to satisfy our technological dreams. So fasten your seat belts as we dive into the top 10 features of the most sophisticated phone currently on the market.
1. Two Terabyte Storage
Apple beefed up the storage of the iPhone 15 compared to its predecessors. The quality of Apple’s camera without a doubt impresses its users but casts an enormous price on its storage. But the iPhone 15 Pro comes to the rescue. The iPhone 15 Pro Series has the highest storage ever at 2 terabytes, ensuring photography enthusiasts are less likely to worry about memory. However, considering Apple’s famous feature, iCloud, which provides users with cloud-based secure storage space, 2 terabytes of storage might not sound like a good deal.
2. Thinnest Borders Ever
The next impressive feature is the iPhone 15’s thin bezels, which make the user experience more immersive. A thinner border means a larger display screen. This feature would be invaluable while watching videos or playing games. For those seeking the peak of innovation, the Pro Series is equipped with even thinner bezels, ensuring an enriched user experience. Overall, the phone size is slightly smaller with a 6.1-inch OLED display, which makes it more handy and an ideal fit for pockets.
3. 24 Megapixel Default Mode
Another standout feature of the new iPhone 15 is that, by default, photos will now be taken at 24 megapixels instead of 12 megapixels like their predecessors. With 24 MP as the new standard, photos are now sharper than ever before. Apple has also announced the new automatic portrait mode, which automatically switches to portrait mode when it detects a face. In addition, even when the portrait mode is not used, the regular camera will capture the depth data so that we can later change it to portrait if required or change the focus of a portrait image. This feature certainly provides new elevated perks to photography lovers.
4. Wifi 6e Support
The new iPhone 15 Pro is equipped with WiFi 6E, a cutting-edge technology that supports a 6 GHz wireless band and ensures reliability and more seamless connectivity. This upgrade not only improves speed but also provides thread support. Using this innovative feature, we can set up a low-power mesh network with low latency, to which we can connect our home appliances and create an effective ad-hoc network. This feature allows iPhone users to effortlessly manage various devices at home while enjoying peak internet speeds.
5. Dynamic Island
Apple is finally killing the notch design and moving on to the latest OLED display called Dynamic Island. The elliptical region near the camera displays various important notifications on the iPhone; it can also expand in size to display proportional content or control music; thus, this feature saves the hassle of controlling music plays by providing an alternative, easy-to-reach music control system. This feature is exclusively available on all iPhone 15 models. The dynamic island in the iPhone 15 model is going to be brighter and packed with more features. This feature leaps into user-friendly and efficient design.
6. A17 Processor
Introducing the A17 Pro chip, a giant leap in smartphone technology, Apple’s focus on efficiency has promised game-changing performance. The ground-breaking new three-nano meter architecture of A17 processors makes the iPhone 15 series the world’s first smartphone to be equipped with this state-of-the-art innovation and provides unparalleled performance and power efficiency compared to all other smartphones that currently use a four-nano meter architecture. The new feature ensures that gamers no longer need to worry about performance fluctuations due to thermal issues while playing high-end games, while at the same time opening a wide door of opportunities for camera features with this new, more effective chip.
7. Titanium Metal Design
Apple’s products always stand out for their sleek and compact designs. While so far iPhone models have been designed with shiny stainless steel, the iPhone 15 model is crafted with titanium metal, providing it with a premium, high-end finish. This is a major upgrade, not just in looks, but it also makes the phone a lot lighter than its other models, and users will very well perceive the difference while holding it in their hands. Other benefits are that it will no longer be glossy and provide better fingerprint resistance while ensuring better heat dissipation. Thus, this feature gives the iPhone its cool looks and several other advantages mentioned.
8. Action Button
With a goodbye to the traditional ringer switch, Apple announced the introduction of the new action button for the iPhone 15. Though the old, classical look of the iPhone would be missed, this button provides various features that are welcomed by users. This new button provides users with various quick features like flashlights, focus modes, cameras, and various other functions without having to fumble through their phones. This new feature will be infinitely customizable, as you can define various shortcuts in it to the extent of even controlling smart home appliances.
9. 5x Telephoto Camera
Apple is always committed to releasing cutting-edge camera technology that never disappoints. The iPhone 15’s 5X telephoto camera is equipped with a novel tetra prism lens that reflects light four times within the camera, thus providing the required optical path for 5x zoom. This design is significant as other cameras in the industry rely on periscope lens design to achieve the same, which should have a side-mounted sensor and a protruding camera bump. Users could feel this innovation when taking low-light photographs which will now have surprisingly minimal noise.
10. USB-C Charging
Finally, the most important upgrade in Apple’s iPhone 15 is the transition from the lightning cable to USB-C. Unfortunately, this new feature does not increase charging speed, but it provides various other perks, like fast data transfer speeds. Users could now get 20 times faster file transfer rates than the traditional lightning cable. Also, this new phone is compatible with the universally used type-C, making users worry less while traveling or outdoor camping.
