This week the Apple company presented a new generation of its iPhone at its traditional Apple event, where four models were presented: the 15, 15 Plus, 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max.
To summarize, the two mobile phones in the non-pro range (15 and 15 Plus) are equipped with Dynamic Island for displaying alerts and live activity, as well as an A16 Bionic processor. In addition, the wide-angle camera has 48 MP and a 2x telephoto lens.
There is also durable, color-filled glass in an aluminum design and a USB-C port. The difference between the two devices lies in the size of the screen: the 15 measures 6.1 inches and the Plus version measures 6.7 inches.
On the Pro side, these are the first iPhones made from aerospace-grade titanium. The processor is the A17 Pro, a chip that promises above all to be faster (20% more than the previous version). Another important detail is that they have a customizable action button. It also features a USB-C port with USB 3 for super-fast transfer speeds.
So far everything is clear. However, technology expert Domingo Gomes explained several aspects that were not explained in detail at the launch event.
This entire new line has a USB-C port, but the base phone’s port is 2.0 and limited to speeds of 480 Mbps. This means that iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus data transfer via this type of connection is 20 times slower. The Pro is USB 3.0 and this type of cable is not included.
Another aspect Gomes highlighted is that the base iPhone 15 has a new screen, but it remains at 60Hz (refresh rate). On the other hand, the Pro is the lightest (187 grams), but at the same time the thickest yet, perhaps due to its camera system.
It was also known that the basic iPhone 15 will not be able to record in ProRes mode, despite having the same processor as the 14 Pro. “Something that seems a little strange to me is that they didn’t mention the thin edges in the Pro version,” the expert said.
