Apple's Pro line of smartphones is positioned as professional solutions. And the iPhone 15 Pro has been on the market for six months now, so it's time to evaluate whether the gadget lives up to its title.

Key innovations

The main updates of the 15 Pro include:

  • processor with console-level graphics;
  • USB-C connector;
  • camera improvements;
  • support for recording LOG videos;
  • action button.

Let's analyze all aspects and find out how they affect the gadget's capabilities.

Performance at its best

The chip of the new iPhone is the A17 Pro. Its 6-core CPU provides a 10% performance boost, and its 6-core GPU provides a 20% boost in graphics. In addition, the iPhone's GPU received support for technologies such as mesh shading and hardware ray tracing acceleration, which increased performance in games with realistic graphics by 400%.

The amount of RAM has increased to 8 GB, which has a positive impact on multitasking. You can keep more applications open at the same time without losing speed.

New generation portable console

Thanks to the new graphics capabilities of the A17 Pro chip, the 15 Pro runs the most demanding games: Death Stranding, Resident Evil Village, and the remake of Resident Evil 4. Of course, the mobile gaming experience will still be different from PC or console gaming, but the ability to run AAA games on a smartphone looks amazing.

Switching to USB-C

One of the most anticipated changes is the abandonment of the Lightning connector in favor of the universal USB-C. This not only simplified charging by allowing the use of a single cable for all devices but also opened up new possibilities.

Thus, the USB-C port in the Apple iPhone 15 Pro supports data transfer rates of up to 10 Gbps when using a USB 3 cable. And now you can record video directly to external SSDs and SD cards.

Customize the action button as you like

The customizable Action Button is another interesting innovation. It can be programmed to perform any action. For example, you can use it to quickly start a video or activate Google Assistant. The button has great potential for development. Enthusiasts have already created several complex shortcuts to launch a whole menu of actions.

The camera has become even better

The main camera module received a larger 48 MP sensor. This provided a significant increase in the detail of the images. The quality of photos taken in low light conditions has also improved.

There is a function to automatically switch between normal photo and portrait mode. If a person or animal is in the frame, depth data collection is activated. The final format can be selected later. The phone has a telephoto lens with 3X zoom. It's great for shooting distant objects.

Shoot video like a pro

The main innovation for videographers is native support for recording in the LOG format. This gives you more options for post-processing and allows you to get a more natural picture.

Third-party apps provide access to manual settings, including shutter speed, ISO, and white balance. The only drawback is that you need to use an external storage device to shoot LOG in 4K 60 FPS. Nevertheless, any videographer will be in favor of this.

Bottom line

15 Pro offers a number of interesting improvements and innovations. Owners who are fond of photos and videos will be especially pleased. The main trump cards of the Apple model are the USB-C port, the Action Button, and support for the LOG format. Overall, the 15 Pro is a big step towards professional use.
