What’s new with iPhone 15?

As a quick refresher, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus pack a handful of notable upgrades this year. The headlining change, of course, is the switch to USB-C for charging, but here’s a rundown of the five biggest changes:

  • USB-C replaces Lightning for charging and data transfer.
  • The Dynamic Island replaces the notch, giving you a quick and fun way to interact with Live Actvities and more.
  • A new 48MP camera on the back brings a significant improvement in image quality. This also unlocks a new 2x telephoto zoom option in the Camera app.
  • Improved performance thanks to the addition of the A16 Bionic chip.
  • A refreshed design with contoured edges and a new matte finish on the back with color-infusion.
