Every few years, Apple introduces significant changes to its hardware products, and 2023 is one of those exciting years for iPhone enthusiasts. The iPhone 15 might not have a radically different appearance from its predecessors, but it incorporates key upgrades that make it a noteworthy choice, particularly for those holding onto iPhone 12 or older models.

Pricing & Design: 

The iPhone 15 starts at the same price as the iPhone 14, offering options for 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB variants. It features new pastel colors, and although there’s no Product RED version this time, Apple has transitioned to USB Type-C, eliminating the Lightning connector. The design is familiar, with minor size and weight differences, providing an excellent in-hand feel.

Display & Specifications: 

The iPhone 15 maintains a 6.1-inch OLED display with Apple’s Dynamic Island from the 14 Pro series, making it look modern. However, it doesn’t include ProMotion and always-on display features. The device is powered by Apple’s A16 Bionic SoC and boasts stereo speakers, IP68 rating, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, and TrueDepth camera for Face ID. Running on iOS 17, the iPhone 15 promises continued software support and introduces various new features.

Performance & Battery Life: 

The iPhone 15 delivers outstanding daily performance, handling apps smoothly and offering great visuals. It runs cool for the most part, although occasional heating issues arise during wireless CarPlay usage. The device excels in gaming, supports HDR videos with Dolby Vision, and offers robust benchmark numbers, outperforming many Android phones. Battery life is impressive, providing a full day’s runtime on a single charge, with fast and wireless charging options.

Camera Capabilities: 

The iPhone 15’s camera system does not include a telephoto lens, and the ultra-wide camera lacks macro functionality. Nevertheless, the 48-megapixel main sensor improves image quality and offers optical quality 2X zoom. The device supports 4K 60fps video recording in Dolby Vision and features Smart HDR 5 for enhanced photo processing. Image quality in daylight and low-light conditions is impressive, and the device continues Apple’s reputation for top-notch video recording.


The iPhone 15 stands out as a worthy upgrade, bringing many advanced features from the 14 Pro models to the standard lineup. However, its pricing in India is on the higher side. If you want premium features without the Pro model’s premium price, the iPhone 15 is a great choice. For those less concerned with the latest features, the iPhone 13 is an excellent option, especially during festive sales when it’s available at a significant discount.

In conclusion, the iPhone 15 is a remarkable device offering substantial improvements, and its launch in 2023 is far from a meme, but rather an exciting year for iPhone enthusiasts.
