The iPhone 15 is here and it looks excellent

Apple’s iPhone 15 announcement is here, and with it we got a look at the next generation of the most popular phone in the world, and it didn’t disappoint.

Anyone without a finger on the pulse of the tech world might be surprised by the iPhone 15 announcement. Apple is bringing numerous changes to one of the best 5G phones on the market, some of them quite big. But anyone who has been keeping an eye on developments likely already knows exactly what they are.

After Anker’s USB-C lineup launch at IFA 2023 last week, the charging brand focused on iPhone users basically confirmed the biggest change. The iPhone 15 uses USB-C. That’s right, the new iPhone is finally the same as literally every other phone that’s coming out nowadays. Long gone is lightning, the slow, proprietary, and irritating iPhone port. After more than a decade of service, I’m glad it’s gone.

The other big news is the camera setup, which now gets a 48MP main camera, matching that of the Pro lineup last year. It also get the A16 Bionic inside, as expected, though it is the same chip as last year’s Pro phones. As always, Apple promises “all-day battery life”, though didn’t give solid numbers.

But there are more big changes. In terms of design, the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus now get Dynamic Island, giving the whole lineup a shared aesthetic. There’s a better screen too, new frosted glass on the back, and bunch of other exciting additions. You can check out the full Apple event below.
