iPhone 15: New Features, Prices, and Comparisons

Apple recently unveiled the highly anticipated iPhone 15 at their annual September event in Cupertino, California. With a starting price of $799, the entry-level iPhone 15 is priced similarly to the previous three models. The tech giant introduced a total of four new models, including the iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max, each with varying price ranges.

One notable change in the iPhone 15 lineup is the use of different chips. The iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will be equipped with the A16 Bionic chip introduced last year, while the Pro and Pro Max models will feature the new A17 Pro chip designed with a 3nm process. This change promises improved performance and enhanced capabilities for the Pro variants.

Another change is the charging standard. Apple has complied with European legislation by adopting the USB-C charging standard, replacing the Lightning port. This shift not only allows for faster data transfer speeds but also enables users to avoid purchasing multiple chargers for different devices.

Over the years, the prices of iPhones have seen significant fluctuations. The initial iPhone released in 2007 had a high price tag of $499. However, the following year, Apple introduced the more affordable iPhone 3G at $199. Prices remained relatively stable until the release of the iPhone 5c in 2013, which became the cheapest iPhone in history with a price of $99.

Since then, iPhone prices have continued to increase, particularly with the introduction of the Plus models, known for their larger screens. The iPhone X, released in 2017, marked a significant jump in prices with a starting price of $999. The trend has followed with subsequent models.
