As we can see, the improvement in the iPhone 15, especially the iPhone 15 Pro, focuses on several specific details that truly make a difference. The reduced size of the screen bezels, the lighter weight, the slightly smaller size, the impressive graphics performance and power, or the increased zoom capability for photos are just a few examples.
Deciding whether to upgrade from the iPhone 14 to the iPhone 15 is a very personal decision and depends largely on how we plan to use these phones. In terms of photography, for example, the evolution is quite significant, and for many professional photographers, it simplifies image capture and reduces the number of accessories they need to carry in their equipment.
In any case, it’s clear that the evolution between generations is truly remarkable. Just the change in materials and features is a significant step forward. The iPhone 15, 15 Plus, 15 Pro, and 15 Pro Max once again redefine what we can expect from a phone and push the rest of the industry forward.
