Key Features of the iPhone 15 Series

As anticipated, this range has substantial enhancements over the previous generations of Apple iPhones.

Some of these key changes include:

Display changes in the iPhone 15 Series

Design and display-wise, the new iPhone 15 series takes a massive leap from the previous iPhone 14 generation.

Each one in the lineup now comes with the Dynamic Island feature, designed to give you quick access to notifications, alerts, and other background activities, like timers and alarms, without needing to switch the pages you're on. This feature was previously only found in the Pro and Pro Max lineup, meaning you're finally getting more for your money when you opt for a standard or Plus edition this time round. Read more out this feature here.


Every model in this series also comes with improved screen brightness, boasting a peak outdoor brightness of 2000 nits and up to 1000 nits in typical conditions - again, offering an improved user experience when viewing a range of content in different lighting. 

Slightly Different Design

Regarding its style, Apple has now replaced the iPhone's Lightning connector with a USB-C port, ensuring you can use the same charging cable across other Apple devices, such as those utilised in certain Apple Mac, iPads and later Apple Watch Series.

Plus, the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max editions now have a whole titanium casing available in a wide range of new colours, such as Blue titanium, Natural titanium, White titanium and Black titanium. 

This adds aesthetic appeal and makes your phone sturdier to withstand multiple drops and scratches, though it's always best to add a case - just to be sure.

Camera Changes

The standard Apple iPhone 15 also has an upgraded rear camera system.

With this one, you now gain a 48MP main camera, which enhances Smart HDR mode and improves Night mode by offering higher detailed imagery in low-light performance. Read more about it's improve camera system here.

If your photos still don't fit your artistic preference, the phone also offers camera app features everyone has come to love, such as portrait mode, landscape mode, and more, allowing you to adapt each snapshot to the last detail. These can then be edited within the photos app to make each photo truly your own.
