Under the hood
All iPhone 15 models are powered by the A16 Bionic chip, the same processor found in Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro models from 2022.
However, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are equipped with the latest A17 Pro chip, based on 3nm technology, promising enhanced performance compared to its predecessors.
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus feature a 48-megapixel primary camera alongside a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera.
In contrast, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max come with an improved version of the 48-megapixel sensor introduced in the previous Pro models.
Additionally, the Pro models offer 3x and 5x telephoto cameras, with the latter boasting a periscope camera setup featuring a 120mm focal length.
All four iPhone models come equipped with Apple’s latest U2 Ultra-wideband chip for improved device tracking, including compatibility with the new Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2.
Notably, Apple has replaced the old Lightning connector with a USB Type-C port in all four models to comply with upcoming EU regulations.
However, it’s worth noting that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus offer USB 2 support, while the Pro models feature USB 3 with transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbps, requiring an “optional” USB cable included in the box, will be a standard USB 2 cable.
