Now is a good time to talk about pricing – the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus cost the same as they did in the US and India, but are a bit cheaper in Europe. Or rather would have been cheaper, had Apple not cut the pricing of the 14 and 14 Plus to $700/€850/£700/₹70,000 and $800/€950/£800/₹80,000, respectively.
The iPhone 15 Plus is in the same boat. In case it wasn’t clear, this is a $900/€1,100/£900/₹90,000 phone with a 60Hz display and a USB 2.0 port (now with a Type C connector, but still).
Moving on to the iPhone 15 Pro. Both Pros feature the latest 3nm Apple A17 Pro chipset with a record-setting 3.77GHz max clock speed on the big CPU cores. Also, there is more RAM on board, 8GB (up from 6GB). The frame is now made out of titanium rather that stainless steel, so it’s 19g lighter. And, unlike the vanilla models, the USB-C port is capable of 10Gbps data transfer speeds (vs. 480Mbps). But even the USB 2.0 ports on the vanilla phone support DisplayPort (i.e. video out).
While the Pro cameras are essentially the same as last year, the iPhone 15 Pro Max has a tangible upgrade – Apple’s first periscope camera comes with a 120mm lens and a 12MP sensor with 1.12µm pixels. With 5x zoom the Apple camera can finally take the fight to Androids, although this also leaves quite a gap between the main camera (which supports native 2x zoom) and the tele – that’s a long range for digital zoom to cover, but Apple didn’t want to add a fourth camera.
