iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus were announced on Tuesday at Apple’s ‘Wonderlust’ event. The iPhone 15 series is the successor to Apple’s iPhone 14 smartphone lineup and the new handsets are equipped with a handful of noteworthy hardware upgrades. This year, Apple has brought its Dynamic Island to all four models and replaced the 10-year-old Lightning port with support for the widely-used USB Type-C connector. The regular iPhone 15 smartphones are also equipped with a 48-megapixel primary camera and Apple’s A16 Bionic chip that made its debut on the iPhone 14 Pro models.

The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are yet to go on sale in India and global markets. Pre-orders will open on September 15, while the phones will be available for purchase on September 22. Meanwhile, the iPhone 14 is currently sold via the company’s online store, e-commerce platforms like Amazon and Flipkart, and authorised retail channels.

Here’s a comparison of the iPhone 15 price in India and specifications with the iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 14.

Under the hood, the new iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are powered by Apple’s A16 Bionic chip. This is the same chip that powered the iPhone 14 Pro last year. Meanwhile, the iPhone 14 is powered by the company’s older A15 Bionic SoC. Both phones have an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.

One of the biggest upgrades on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus is the new 48-megapixel primary camera that is also claimed to enable better portraits with focus and depth control. The iPhone 14, on the other hand, features a 12-megapixel primary camera. Both phones have a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. All three handsets feature a 12-megapixel TrueDepth front camera. 

Apple has finally dropped support for the 10-year-old Lightning port in favour of USB Type-C in order to comply with EU regulations. The iPhone 14, on the other hand, is equipped with the proprietary port. However, both phones support data transfers at USB 2.0 speeds.

The iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, and iPhone 14 are equipped with 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB of inbuilt storage. Finally, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are equipped with an upgraded second-generation U2 ultra-wideband (UWB) chip compared to the one found on the iPhone 14.
