Apart from the design and display, the camera is another feature that Apple enthusiasts anticipate the most every time there's a new iPhone release.
In the recently concluded “Wonderlust” event held on Wednesday, Sept. 13, Apple unveiled its new iPhone lineup, which promises all things wonderful—from its wide color variants in the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus line and the lightweight titanium material of its Pro and Pro Max series, to the game changer USB-C charging port and new optical zoom camera specs.
But another selling point is the 48-megapixel camera.
Starting on its base 15 and 15 Plus, the new main camera boasts its powerful 48-MP camera which has up to 4x resolution for a clearer photo detail, and a new telephone that reaches up to 2x zoom.
In the new line, users can simply tap to shift focus between the subject during and after taking the photo for a “dramatic” flair on their portraits, and it works just as well even in low-light scenes despite only having a dual camera.
This new technology also enables you to have the blur effect on the background without having to shift to portrait mode if you’re in a hurry—no need to upload and edit on other apps!
The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max series, meanwhile, allows you to take pictures like a pro with its advanced quad-pixel sensor that easily adapts to the environment or subject you’re shooting. Also geared with 2x telephoto, you can capture anything in clearer detail.
The Pro's new Photonic engine allows you to have default 24MP photos—twice as much as their past quality—for clearer true-to-color photos, zero shutter lag, and up to two times better low-light performance. Additionally, its 48MP HEIF gives you more resolution and is ready to share photos.
Going back to the main camera, users can easily shift their lens to 24mm, 28mm, or 35mm. Shots in portrait mode can also be in live mode as well. You can also use a continuous zoom for better close-up detail. And like the 15 and Plus series, you can change the focus during and after taking the shot by simply tapping on the subjects.
Its night mode will also allow you to capture your subjects and make them stand out in darker scenes, thanks to its new Photonic engine.
Proving its outstanding performance, 2023 VMA winner Olivia Rodrigo pioneered the “camera test” and filmed her newest music video, get him back! using the iPhone 15 Pro.
To be able to shoot videos similar to that, use the cinematic mode, which can automatically shift the focus on the most important subject in a scene. Its action mode lets you have a steady shot, no matter how shaky the handheld shot is.
Owning the “best iPhone series,” the iPhone Pro line is the first smartphone to support ACES (Academy Color Encoding System) which is a powerful color grading tool used for major film productions. So it won't be long before a film is shot on an iPhone.
Is your wallet ready? The series will be launched on September 22. See the prices here.
