Apple Reveals the iPhone 15 Series Featuring Ray Tracing & USB-C

The newly revealed iPhone 15 Pro will leverage six cores and hardware-accelerated ray tracing, allowing it to run AAA games.

During its most recent Wonderlust Event, Apple officially unveiled the iPhone 15 series, which encompasses the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max, representing the latest additions to the company's flagship smartphone lineup.

The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro will both feature a 6.1-inch display, while the Plus and Pro Max models will come with a larger 6.7-inch screen. It's important to note that all models in the iPhone 15 series will now incorporate a USB-C port for charging, eliminating the need for the Lightning cable. According to Apple, the new port, most likely added as a direct response to the European Union's earlier demand for all phones and tablets sold in the EU to have a USB-C charging port by the end of 2024, will enable the new smartphones to charge up to 20 times faster.

The newly revealed iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, on the other hand, will be crafted from Grade 5 Titanium materials, the same alloy employed in spacecraft destined for missions to Mars. This aerospace-grade titanium design offers a remarkable combination of increased durability and reduced weight.

The enhancements also encompass an advanced 48MP primary camera with 3x or 5x telephoto capabilities, extended battery life, up to 20x faster file transfers, a novel Action button for swift access to various functions, and more.

However, the highlight feature of the iPhone 15 Pro is undoubtedly its groundbreaking A17 Pro chip, characterized by Apple as the most significant GPU redesign in Apple's history.

Boasting six cores, this new chip delivers up to a 20% performance improvement compared to its predecessor, offering the highest level of graphics performance ever seen in Apple devices. Furthermore, the iPhone 15 Pro introduces hardware-accelerated ray tracing for the first time, ensuring smoother graphics and true-to-life lighting effects.
