iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus: colours on display
The standard iPhone 15 and 15 Plus come in an amazing choice of colours—Black, Blue, Green, Yellow, and Pink. But it’s not just about looks—their aluminium frames and Gorilla Glass front and back ensure these beauties can handle average knocks and bumps in bags, pockets, and life. So, you’re getting a mix of style and real resilience.
Key updates include –

The Pro models are in a class of their own. Dressed up in high-end hues like Black Titanium, White Titanium, Blue Titanium, and Natural Titanium, they carry a certain sophistication. It’s not just about having the flashy features, though. What’s impressive is how they pack in all the incredible technology and functions whilst keeping the phone light and easy to hold.
Significant changes are –

With these improvements, the iPhone 15 family has flourished in design, detail, and durability, providing a versatile selection of looks to match your individual style while staying true to its strong functionality.
Apple joins the USB-C crowd
Say goodbye to the cable chaos! The iPhone 15 has finally moved on from the exclusive charging port we’d come to know since the iPhone 5. Apple has embraced the USB-C connector, universally used amongst other smart devices.
This shift aligns the iPhone with other electronic devices and significantly reduces the wire clutter in homes and offices. No more scrambling for different chargers for multiple devices. The iPhone 15 is marching right up to the front lines of versatility and convenience.
Get Pro images with iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max
The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max elevate mobile photography with their Photonic Engine, delivering extraordinary 24MP photos—double the typical resolution for superior detail. Select from 24mm, 28mm, or 35mm main camera lenses; no extra tools required. It’s safe to say, the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max redefine possibilities in mobile photography and videography.
These Pro models are the first smartphones to support ACES (Academy Colour Encoding System), bringing Hollywood-level colour rendering for detailed, vibrant images. This feature really raises the bar for producing great videos to keep your followers up to date in impressive detail. Propelling innovation, they’ve also introduced 3D video capabilities with Ultra-Wide and Main cameras. Immerse yourself in 3D videos with remarkable depth and realism through Apple Vision Pro.
The camera upgrade you wanted
The iPhone 15 and 15 Plus also boast significant camera upgrades, taking mobile photography to the next level. Although they only feature two lenses, it doesn’t stop the power of the image-taking capabilities. With an impressive leap from 12MP to a 48MP main camera, you can enjoy remarkable image quality featuring enhanced detail and vibrant colours, transforming portraits dramatically.
The devices also enable a focus shift between subjects with a simple tap, even after capturing the shot. Now, there’s no need to manually switch to Portrait mode as the iPhone 15 automatically captures depth information when the subject is a person, dog, or cat. This progress enables users to view their photos instantly as portraits with an artful blur effect, making it seamless to achieve stunning visual results with the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus. So, if you’re looking for a much better camera, sell your iPhone 14 with us and be the envy of all your friends with a new iPhone 15.
The cost of the new iPhone 15 family
The pricing for the new iPhone 15 series has seen an increase compared to last year’s release, the iPhone 14 series. The price for the standard iPhone 15 is £799, which is £100 more than the iPhone 14. This price increase is the same across all models, except for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, which has only seen an increase of £60 compared to the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
This price increase is just another bit of evidence that the cost of living affects all industries and may put many people off upgrading. Even if you are considering buying the new iPhone on contract, you can expect an inflation in last year’s prices.
