Unveiling iPhone 15 Features


The iPhone 15 arrived in 2023, offering a whole new range of features and functions designed to enhance your daily mobile experience.

Unlike previous base-level iPhones, the latest iteration boasts a revamped camera system, a cutting-edge processor, and the exclusive Dynamic Island feature, once solely found in Pro models.

Keep reading to discover more with UR.co.uk.

Or, purchase the device right now by exploring our carefully curated range of refurbished iPhones.

Key Takeaways:

  • This device comes with the most advanced camera functions ever experience in a standard iPhone.

  • It's also perfectly optimised to provide you with high-powered, efficient performance.

  • Gain all this and more for cheaper by purchasing from UR.co.uk.

Specs of the Refurbished iPhone 15

Before we get started, familiarise yourself with the refurbished iPhone 15's specs to gain an understanding of what we'll be discussing in this article.

Feature Specification
Display 6.1” Super Retina XDR display
Chip A16 Bionic Chip
Camera 48MP main camera, 12MP ultra wide camera, 12MP front camera
Capacities 128GB, 256GB, 512GB

Note: All of UR's phones undertake a comprehensive 90-point phone check by in-house expert engineers, so expect it to work almost like new upon arrival, holding all the same features like emergency SOS via satellite and more.

The iPhone 15's Design


The iPhone 15 arguably takes one of the biggest leaps in specs for an iPhone device in a long time. Sure, it retains the same textured matt finish and contoured edges in an aluminium and glass frame, similar to the iPhone 14 before it.

But the devil is in the details.

USB-C Port

Distinguishing itself from previous generations, this new iPhone comes with a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port, ensuring you can charge your device with the same plug and cable used with other Apple devices, including certain Macs, iPads, AirPods, and the latest Apple Watch 7, 8, and 9.

The data transfer speeds remain the same, but no one can deny the increased convenience of this feature.

Increased Brightness

The iPhone 15 also features a 6.1" Super Retina Display, meaning that Apple continues the tradition of relegating its Always-On display to Pro models, like the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

However, a significant improvement can be found in the display's brightness in outdoor situations, which now reaches around 2,000 nits, significantly enhancing visibility and interaction with your favourite app while on the go, even under direct sunlight.

Dynamic Island

Another noteworthy enhancement is the introduction of its Dynamic Island - an innovative and interactive feature designed to adapt to your daily activities while cleverly concealing the once-pesky notch previously housing the iPhone's selfie camera. Find more about this feature here.

This ingenious functionality was once exclusive to the pricier models in previous generations, altogether echoing a pattern throughout this article.

These might seem small, but combined, they represent one of the biggest changes in an iPhone's display since at least the iPhone 11.

Performance of the iPhone 15

This device also has minor performance improvements, as expected with most iPhone generations. In keeping with tradition, the iPhone 15 features an enhanced processor – the A16 Bionic chip with a 5-core GPU, designed to provide smoother graphics and enhance photography capabilities to complement its new, advanced camera system.

However, the iPhone 15 goes further with its charging feature.

Apple is known to provide each new iPhone with an 'Optimized Charging' feature to extend the device's battery life. But now, they've also implemented an 80% charging limit, which ensures your battery doesn't exceed this percentage when on charge. Read more here.

It's important to note that your battery degrades with every full charge, so this is an overall lifesaver if you wish to maintain your phone's health long after considering a replacement.

Note: All our refurbished phones arrive with at least 80% battery health to last you through multiple battery life cycles for years.

Camera System on the iPhone 15

Apple has taken a significant leap forward by upgrading its standard iPhone camera systems, transitioning from the iPhone 14's 12MP main camera to a formidable 48MP counterpart in the iPhone 15, thereby ensuring enhanced night mode functionality and richer image detail.

This is nearly the same system found in the 14 Pro model, offering the same 24MP images that are bright and vibrant in all lighting conditions—an aspect explored further in our comparisons between the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro.

The package still includes the familiar 12MP front and ultra wide camera—the former primed for capturing flawless selfies or facilitating swift phone access via Face ID—and the same optical and digital zoom options known and cherished by both new and longstanding Apple users.

All this comes alongside the phone's excellent photos app, allowing you to tailor your photos to your liking, whether that be in portrait mode with its depth-of-field effect or capturing expansive shots in landscape mode.

The Value of Buying from UR.co.uk

At the end of the day, you can't go wrong with the iPhone 15. It offers nearly the same features found in previous Pro versions, plus a few extras to boost performance. The only issue is its hefty price tag, as expected of most new Apple releases.

But what if we told you you could obtain all of this for less by purchasing a refurbished device at UR?

Here's what else UR can do for you:
