Apple has recently launched its highly anticipated iPhone 15 series, which includes the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max models. This year's releases present noteworthy upgrades that are already turning heads.
The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max have undergone notable design modifications, making them stand out even more in the Apple lineup. The most significant change is the transition to a new titanium alloy for their chassis, departing from the stainless steel traditionally used. Titanium offers the advantages of being stronger and lighter compared to steel. In addition, both models sport the innovative Dynamic Island on the front, which is now more versatile than before.
Apple also introduced a solid-state Action button, taking the place of the conventional mute switch. This button retains the basic functions of its predecessor, but it's now configurable to perform a variety of commands such as launching the camera app, initiating voice memos, or activating certain shortcuts and accessibility features.
Display-wise, both the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max maintain their 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch OLED screens. However, enhancements such as increased brightness, efficient LTPO controllers, and slimmer bezels make these displays even more striking. Both models also support adaptive refresh rates with ProMotion and an Always-on display feature.

Performance-wise, these Pro models are powered by the groundbreaking A17 Bionic chip, the first mobile SoC crafted using a 3nm process. This chip delivers increased processing performance and heightened efficiency. Furthermore, it's equipped with a 6-core processor and a 6-core GPU, a notable step up from the A16's graphics core. Storage options are also generous, with up to 1TB available, accompanied by 8GB of RAM.
Camera capabilities have been enhanced, especially with the 48MP IMX803 primary camera which promises superior low-light shots. The iPhone 15 Pro Max also boasts a telephoto lens capable of 5x optical zoom.
Another significant update lies in the battery and charging department. The Pro models now feature a USB-C port, which not only promises faster charging but also supports data transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps when using an optional USB3 cable. On the software front, both phones operate on iOS 16.
In terms of color options, these iPhones are available in black titanium, white titanium, and blue titanium. The iPhone 15 Pro pricing starts at $999 with a base storage of 128GB, while the Pro Max begins at $1,199 with a starting storage of 256GB.
