Apple unveils iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, price starts from Rs 79,900 in India


GUWAHATI, Sep 13: Apple launched the iPhone 15 globally last night during its much-anticipated Wonderlust event at the company headquarters in Apple Park, Cupertino, California.

The tech giant officially unveiled its new high-end iPhones and guess what? They are made of titanium.

Apple claimed that the new Titanium design is the most premium material used in an iPhone enclosure.

Four models of the phone, the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max and the iPhone 15 Plus were launched by the tech giant last night.

The 128GB variant of iPhone 15 has been priced at Rs 79,900 in India while the 256GB variant will cost Rs 89,900.

The 512GB variant will be up for grabs for Rs 1,09,900.

The iPhone 15 will go on sale in India on September 22 onwards.

And you can also pre-order the device from September 15, 5:30 PM IST.

The frame on the Pro models has a brushed look, as opposed to the shiny, stainless steel frame on last year’s models. Not only is titanium cool looking, it’s also more durable while making the phones slightly lighter. The displays are the same size: 6.1 and 6.7 inches, Mashable reported.

Interestingly, the ring/silent switch is gone, replaced with an “Action Button”. With the new, button that you can customize to run shortcuts, bring up accessibility features, open the camera, turn on the flashlight, and more.

The Pros both have Super Retina XDR displays with ProMotion and support both the always-on display and the new StandBy mode in iOS 17.

The chip that powers the iPhone 15 Pro is Apple’s new A17 Pro chip. It’s a 3 nanometer chip, with 19 billion transistors, 6 main cores (2 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores), and the 16-core Neural Engine.

Camera functions have been improved.  On the iPhone 15 Pro Max (but not the regular iPhone 15 Pro), there’s a new telephoto camera, with a new tetra-prism design, increasing the zoom up to 5x (the iPhone 15 Pro maxes out at 3x).

But the main, wide camera, as well as the ultrawide camera (which are the same on both the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max) have received significant improvements as well.

Most importantly, the camera can now capture Spatial Video, which is designed to be watched on Apple’s upcoming Vision Pro, though that’s coming later this year.
