It’s nearly a week since the global launch of the iPhone 15 series in India and other regions, and it’s evident that these phones are selling exceptionally well. This surge in demand has led many retailers to even impose a black market premium. However, this hasn’t deterred people from purchasing the latest iPhone 15 models—largely because of the new features introduced by the iPhone 15 Pro models.
Here, let’s have a look at some of the industry-leading features Apple has brought with the iPhone 15 Pro.
World’s First 3nm Mobile Chip
Apple’s new A17 Pro is the first mobile chipset to be based on 3nm architecture. This process puts the new chip in a league of its own, and no other chip from rivals like Qualcomm is based on the 3nm process yet. For comparison, the latest flagship Qualcomm chipset—Snapdragon 8 Gen2 is based on the 4nm architecture.
First Phones To Play AAA Console and PC Games
Thanks to the A17 Pro, the iPhone 15 Pro models have also become the first phones to allow users to play graphically-intensive AAA games. Games like Resident Evil Village, Resident Evil 4 Remake, and Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding are all coming to the iPhone for the first time ever. Apple has also been quick to acknowledge the iPhone 15 Pro as the “best gaming console.”
Thanks to the myriad advancements, the iPhone 15 Pro models can now record in LOG on an external SSD drive or SD card connected via the USB-C port. Apple allows users to capture ProRes LOG video in up to 4K 60fps. LOG video allows for greater flexibility while color grading in post-production.
First To Default to 24MP Still Images
Despite having a 200MP camera sensor, Android counterparts have already used pixel binning technology to output in 12MP. But the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro’s 48MP sensors output in 24MP by default, making them the first phones to do so.
No Need To Activate Portrait Mode
iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 let you convert a normal mode photo to a portrait mode photo later while you are editing it. So, if you missed clicking in portrait mode, don’t worry, as your iPhone 15 Series captures the depth data using which you can convert any photo clicked on your iPhone into a portrait mode photo. This is certainly a first and quite a nifty feature.
