After almost a decade since using a Lightning Port starting with the iPhone 5, Apple is finally making the complete transition to USB-C starting with the iPhone 15 series. Consisting of the 6.1-inch regular model and 6.7-inch Plus, both models also adopt Dynamic Island, making the whole iPhone series also move on from having a notch. While the display on both the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus remain capped at 60hz, both models get slimmer bezels and can go up to 2000nits of brightness.
Both the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus are powered by a 4nm A16 processor that offers a significant performance boost compared to last year’s A15 processor. You also get more RAM at 6GB for both versions, though storage variants still begin at 128GB. Both models get support for satellite services–and you can use it for free for the first 2 years.
Aside from the updated display and the switch to USB-C, both iPhone 15 and 15 Plus also get a new 48-megapixel main camera with sensor-shift OIS and a f/1.6 aperture–the same one used on the iPhone 14 Pro series. The higher resolution means that both phones will have better digital zoom capabilities compared to last year’s 12-megapixel shooter. The ultra-wide remains the same at 12-megapixels.
Battery capacity gets a slight jump too: 3877mAh for the iPhone 15, and 4912mAh for the iPhone 15 Plus. Both support 20w charging via USB-C. Color options now include pastel colors like light blue, light pink, light yellow, and light green on top of the usual black.
The Apple iPhone 15 starts at Php 56,990, while the Plus version starts at Php 63,990.
