Today, Apple announced the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max with several new changes and improvements at its “Wonderlust” event.
The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, powered by the new A17 Pro chip feature the same 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR Display, but they now come with slimmer bezels for a more futuristic look. The limelight falls on the new Action Button and the new aerospace-grade titanium design which is both strong and lightweight. The iPhone 15 Pro brings the ability to switch between three popular focal lengths – 24 mm, 28 mm, and 35 mm has been added to the Pro lineup along with support for 48MP HEIF Images. While the iPhone 15 Pro has 3x Optical Zoom with the Telephoto lens, the iPhone 15 Pro Max takes it to the next level and introduces a new Telephoto camera with a tetraprism design for a 5x Optical Zoom option at 120mm. The new Pro models will be available in four elegant finishes – Black titanium, White titanium, Blue titanium, and Natural titanium finishes.
Along with these new advancements, Apple has also added support for WiFi 6E to the Pro lineup. However, the regular iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will continue to support WiFi 6. With WiFi 6E on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, users with a WiFi 6E router can connect to the 6Ghz band on their iPhone to experience blazing-fast speeds with reduced latency. A few other “Pro” Apple devices also feature WiFi 6E, including the 2022 iPad Pro, the 2023 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro, the 2023 Mac Studio, the 2023 Mac mini, and the 2023 Mac Pro.
The new iPhone 15 Pro models will be available in four elegant finishes – Black titanium, White titanium, Blue titanium, and Natural titanium finishes. The iPhone 15 Pro starts at $999 for the 128GB variant, $1,099 for the 256GB variant, $1,299 for the 512GB variant, and $1,499 for the 1TB variant. The iPhone 15 Pro will be available to Pre-order on September 15th starting at 5 a.m. PDT and it will be available starting September 22nd.
The larger Pro Max starts at $1,199 for the 256GB variant, $1,399 for the 512GB variant, and $1,599 for the 1TB variant. The iPhone 15 Pro Max will also be available to Pre-order on September 15th starting at 5 a.m. PDT and it will be available starting September 22nd. Notably, the base variant of the iPhone 15 Pro Max costs $100 more than last year’s iPhone 14 Pro Max, which costed $1,099 — but it also comes with 256GB of base storage, so it is not really a price increase but rather the elimination of the 128GB variant.
