In addition to the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, Apple also unveiled the entry-level iPhone 15 and iPhone 15. Plus during the “Thirst for Wonders” event today. I had to see them at the Steve Jobs Theater after tonight's show, and honestly, I wish I could say more…
iPhone 15 and iPhone The 15 Plus are great phones. They're taking the iPhone 14 and doing exactly what Apple does: gradually extending what were once Pro-exclusive features to non-Pro phones. The other big change, of course, is the USB-C port.
The camera changes shouldn't be overlooked, especially the new 48MP main camera that was brought to non-Pro phones after first being introduced in the iPhone 14 Pro last year. In my opinion, the most notable thing about this is that there is a 2x zoom option in the Camera app. This is achieved by Apple cutting the 48-megapixel camera down to 24-megapixel, allowing 2x zoom without a dedicated telephoto lens.
This year, Dynamic Island will also appear on non-Pro iPhone 15 models. It's the same Dynamic Island we've come to know, just inside a more affordable product.
Otherwise, there’s not much to say about the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus. The design is pretty much the same as before, except for the slightly contoured edges. The back of the phones now has a matte finish instead of a glossy one. They are available in five new colors: pink, yellow, blue, green and black.
I think the pink iPhone 15 will sell like hotcakes. And in real life it looks fantastic. It stands out among relatively ordinary flowers.
