Dual-Lens Rear Camera

Apple made major improvements to the dual-lens camera system used in the iPhone 15 models, introducing a new 48-megapixel Main camera that is notably better than the 12-megapixel Main camera used in the iPhone 14.

The camera features a 26 mm focal length with ƒ/1.6 aperture that lets in plenty of light for situations where lighting is not optimal. Apple added sensor-shift optical image stabilization for less movement and crisper photos and videos, with the lens supporting both 24-megapixel and 48-megapixel high-resolution images

Video Capabilities

The iPhone 15 and 15 Plus offer up to 4K video recording at 24, 25, 30, or 60 frames per second. HDR recording, ProRes video, Cinematic mode, Action mode, slo-mo video, and time-lapse are all supported.

Other Camera Features

There are several other camera bells and whistles that Apple has been adding to the iPhones over the years.

Smart HDR 5 – Recognizes one or more people in a scene and optimizes contrast, lighting, and even skin tones for each person so everyone looks their best. Smart HDR was been upgraded in the iPhone 15 to deliver better color and more true-to-life skin tones.

Photonic Engine – The Photonic Engine combines the best pixels from a high-resolution image and an image optimized for light capture, leading to a 24-megapixel image with detail drawn from an image twice the resolution.

Photographic Styles – Smart, adjustable filters that can do things like boost or mute colors without affecting skin tone. Styles apply selectively to an image, unlike a filter that’s applied to the entire image. Photographic Styles include Vibrant (boosts colors), Rich Contrast (darker shadows and deeper colors), Warm (accentuates golden undertones), or Cool (accentuates blue undertones). Tone and Warmth are customizable for each style, so you can get the exact look that you want.

Performance

Starting last year, Apple’s new strategy has been to put a year-old iPhone Pro processor in the base iPhone as a consolation. This makes each year’s base iPhone feel better than before but with FOMO. The Apple A16 Bionic chip inside the 15 was previously sitting inside the Apple iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max last year. You can read more about the processor here in our iPhone 14 Pro Max review. Does this mean the iPhone 15 is any less than its Android competitors? Not at all. The Apple Bionic chips are vastly superior to anything else in the market in terms of processing. Our one-year-old iPhone 14 with a two-year-old Apple A15 Bionic processor can give the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy inside the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra a run for its money.

Things will only get faster and better on the A16 Bionic.
