Apple today announced iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, with features like Dynamic Island, an advanced camera system, 48MP main camera, a new 2x Telephoto option, and a USB‑C option.

iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will be available in five new colours: pink, yellow, green, blue, and black. Pre-orders begin Friday, September 15, with availability beginning Friday, September 22. The new iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus come in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage capacities, starting at ₹79,900 and ₹89,900, respectively, in India.

“iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus represent a huge leap forward with exciting camera innovations that inspire creativity, the intuitive Dynamic Island, and features like Roadside Assistance via satellite that make a real difference in users’ lives,” said Kaiann Drance, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide iPhone Product Marketing.

In terms of display, iPhone 15 lineup is available in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch display sizes. They feature the Dynamic Island, an innovative way to interact with important alerts and live activities.

"The elegant experience fluidly expands and adapts so users can see the next direction in Maps; easily control music; and, with third-party app integrations, get real-time updates on food delivery, ride-sharing, sports scores, travel plans, and more."

In terms of camera, a 48MP Main camera can shoot sharp photos and videos while capturing fine details, with a quad-pixel sensor and 100 percent Focus Pixels for fast autofocus, says Apple.

The main camera gives users a new 24MP super-high-resolution default. An additional 2x Telephoto option in iPhone 15 lineup gives users three optical-quality zoom levels — 0.5x, 1x, 2x, which is a first on an iPhone dual-camera system.

The iPhone 15 lineup bears A16 Bionic chip, with two high-performance cores that use 20% less power and four high-efficiency cores, claims Apple. The 6-core CPU is also "faster" than the previous generation and can handle intensive tasks.

The 5-core GPU has 50% more memory bandwidth for smooth graphics when streaming videos and playing games. A new 16-core Neural Engine can do 17 trillion operations per second. This enables faster machine learning computations for features like Live Voicemail transcriptions in iOS 17.

The iPhone 15 lineup also comes with critical safety capabilities, including Crash Detection and Emergency SOS via satellite. The feature is currently available in 14 countries, but not in India.

The iPhone 15 lineup uses a USB‑C connector, a universally accepted standard for charging and transferring data, allowing the same cable to charge iPhone, Mac, iPad, and the updated AirPods Pro (2nd generation). Users can also charge AirPods or Apple Watch directly from iPhone with the USB‑C connector.

Both iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus feature iOS 17, with capabilities like updates with Contact Posters, a new stickers experience, a new way to use AirDrop, and a full-screen experience with glanceable information.
