We were to get them at the same price with faster processors and high-res cameras borrowed from their Pro siblings of last year, as they also offer very little in terms of other hardware upgrades, so a higher tag would’ve caused an even bigger exodus towards the Pros than last year.
- New 48MP main camera
- Dynamic Island cutout
- 2x brighter 2000 nits M12 OLED display
- 4nm Apple A16 chipset
- New U2 UWB chip for 3x farther connectivity
- USB-C charging
- 2-year free Roadside Assistance with satellite connectivity
The new iPhone 15 color palette
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus borrow two other hardware elements of last year’s 14 Pro line – the 4nm Apple A16 processor and the 48MP main camera sensor resolution. The larger sensor would enable them to collect more light for night shots and hit more detailed 2x zoom photos, as it crops from the main sensor.

Battery life and USB-C charging
Last but not least, the larger iPhone 15 battery has undergone the most drastic, 18% capacity increase from its predecessor which should allow for 24 hours of video playback on a charge, up from 20 on its predecessor, as the A16 processor also comes more frugal.
Capacity isn’t be the sole upgrade in the iPhone 15 series battery and charging realm, though. An European Commission legislation forced Apple to move to the USB-C port standard and these changes could contribute to both longer iPhone 15 and 15 Plus battery life, as well as a more convenient charging experience and less cable waste.
New Apple iPhone 15 and 15 Plus colors, preorders, and detailed pricing
The new iPhone 15 and its larger 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus sibling come with new colors as well as they are now painted in pink, black, white, blue and yellow. Gone are the red, gold, and other flashy hues which Apple’s fans in China would scoff at, but government workers there recently got advised against using iPhones now anyway. Too soon? Well, we’ll see how Apple’s stock price fares after the new iPhone announcement.
