Apple’s full transition to USB-C for its iPhones also extends to the iPhone 15 Pro series, with the more premium models having support for USB 3.1 speeds (the regular iPhone 15 series are limited to USB 2.0). Apple also makes use of a titanium frame instead of stainless steel for the first time in the iPhone Pro series, which should make both the 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max tougher and lighter at the same time.
Like last year’s Pro models, both the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max come with 120hz ProMotion OLED displays with a Dynamic Island. You get a 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch display for the 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max respectively, though Apple managed to make the bezels thinner. For the first time since the original iPhone, Apple has replaced the mute switch on the iPhone 15 Pro series with a programmable Action button.
Powering the iPhone 15 Pro series is Apple’s new A17 Pro processor, which is officially the first 3nm chip that’s available globally. The new processor comes with a 6-core CPU (2 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores), 16-core Neural Engine, and 6-core GPU–the latter being 1 core more than what’s found on the 4nm A16 that is now used on the iPhone 15 series. You get 8GB RAM for both iPhone 15 Pro models–the most ever in an iPhone–along with a starting storage of 256GB.
Both iPhone 15 Pro models get an updated 48-megapixel main camera, along with a new 13.4-megapixel f/2.2 ultra-wide camera that has better low-light performance. The iPhone 15 Pro Max also debuts a new 12-megapixel periscope camera that offers a 5x optical zoom–the iPhone 15 Pro still keeps the same 12-megapixel telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom. Speaking of video, the iPhone 15 Pro series can shoot ProRes at 4K60 and can record to an external storage via USB-C.
The Apple iPhone 15 Pro starts at Php 70,990 for the 128GB model, while the Pro Max starts at Php 84,990 for the 256GB model.
