Thoughts

I love the introduction of USB-C, What might not really play out for a lot of people who do not do a lot of creative work with a smartphone camera is the many changes Apple has brought to the iPhone camera that make it a lot more fun to play with.

The 48MP sensor only took binned 12MP photos on the iPhone 14s. Having the option to take full-res 48MP and half-res 24MP photos as well is a step in the right direction. For the 15 Pro’s, the 5x telephoto was definitely way overdue as well as macro mode using the ultrawide camera. Just having all this shooting options available is a definite win in my book.

Looks like the regular models are now getting previous year chipsets with the latest and greatest ones reserved for the Pro’s. Personally if that is the case, I feel the regular models should be even cheaper

    And so the cycle begins once more, the rumour mill coming to life after barely stopping, basking in both glory (iPhone action button, range wide island etc) and defeat ($2000 iPhone pro, round watch etc)

    Its a nice iphone however l didn’t hear the battery capacity or size, in their video they said you can spend the whole day with it. So could it be the new way or determining the battery size

      They do not reveal battery capacity. Will know when the devices are released. This has always been the case.

    Never was an iPhone fan after all

  7. USBC Pro

    OMG, apple is special! The non-pro 15s will run at USB 2 transfer speeds over USBC! I guess their analysis of user data showed iPhone users don’t care about wired transfers.
