Apple has launched its new iPhone 15 series consisting of four smartphones – iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. The pre-orders for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models begin today in India, with availability from September 22. Here are some of the key features and specifications of the new iPhones.
Dynamic Island: A magical way to interact with iPhone
One of the most innovative features of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus is the Dynamic Island, a circular touch-sensitive area on the lower part of the screen that can be used for various actions and activities. The Dynamic Island can be customized to show different icons and shortcuts depending on the context and the app. For example, it can be used to switch between apps, access widgets, control music playback, launch Siri, and more. The Dynamic Island also stays on top of the screen when the phone is locked, allowing users to quickly access notifications, time, date, and battery status.
All-new 48MP Main camera: Super-high-resolution photos and videos
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus also boast of an all-new 48MP Main camera that can capture stunning photos and videos in high resolution. The camera has a larger sensor and a wider aperture than the previous models, allowing more light to enter and produce sharper and brighter images. The camera also supports Focus and Depth Control, which lets users adjust the focus and blur of the background and foreground in real time. The camera can also record videos in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second, with cinematic stabilization and HDR.
USB-C compatible: Faster charging and data transfer
Another major change in the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus is the switch from Lightning port to USB-C port. This means that the new iPhones can be charged faster and more efficiently with USB-C power adapters and cables. The USB-C port also supports USB 2 for data transfer, which is faster than Lightning. The USB-C port is also compatible with a wide range of accessories and devices, such as headphones, speakers, monitors, keyboards, mice, and more.
Colour-infused glass and aluminium design: Durable and stylish
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus have a colour-infused glass and aluminium design that makes them durable and stylish. The glass is made of a special ceramic material that is four times stronger than regular glass. The aluminium is aerospace-grade and has a matte finish that resists fingerprints and scratches. The new iPhones come in five colours: blue, green, pink, white, and black.
Pricing and availability: How to pre-order in India
The iPhone 15 starts at ₹79,900 for the 128GB model, while the iPhone 15 Plus starts at ₹89,900 for the same amount of storage. The other variants are 256GB and 512GB.
