iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:18:59 With a smartphone, the precious memories you capture on iPhone look incredible when viewing with Apple Vision Pro. Photos and videos look like like and panoramas expand to create an immersive experience that wraps around you. And there's one more unique feature we've created just for the world of spatial computing. With iPhone 15 Pro you can now capture spatial videos. We used it ultra wide and main cameras together to create a three-dimensional video. You can then relive these memories in a magical way on Apple Vision Pro. This is really important as your iPhone is with you all the time so you won't ever miss capturing a special moment using spatial video.
iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:18:36
iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:18:21 Using a USB 3 cable with iPhone 15 Pro enables incredibly fast transfer speeds. So it's much faster to transfer your large Pro-Raw photos or Pro-Res videos to your Mac. And now you can use your iPhone with Capture One to shoot and instantly transfer 48 megapixel Pro-Raw directly to a Mac, easily creating a ProStudio suited for today's fast-paced needs. iPhone 15 Pro also supports recording ProRes video directly to an external storage drive. Video productions can quickly swap drives and keep iPhone as the main camera on set. Recording to an external drive enables even higher quality recording options, pushing ProRes 4K up to 60 frames per second for the first time. A great option for filmmakers to create cinematic slow motion. We are also introducing Log Encoding to make ProRes even more powerful for our Pro users, enabling more range and flexibility for visual effects and color grading in post-production. With Log Encoding, iPhone 15 Pro will be the first smartphone in the world to support the Academy Color Encoding System, or ACES, a global standard for color workflows making it easier for filmmakers to use iPhone in their production.
iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:18:07
iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:17:34 The ultra wide camera is also improved with a new anti-reflective coating, better night mode and the latest smart HDR in addition to enabling one of our users' favorite features on the Pro models, macro photography. Macro is one of the seven lenses of the new Pro camera system with a 10x optical zoom range going from 13 to 120 millimeter focal length making iPhone 15 Pro Max more powerful and more versatile than ever.
iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:17:26
iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:17:24 Up to 10,000 micro adjustments per second. That's twice as many as iPhone 14 Pro.

iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:15:11 Let's talk about our zoom range. iPhone 15 Pro features a great 3x telephoto camera at 77mm focal length, ideal for classic portraiture. For iPhone 15 Pro Max, we're using the extra size of the larger iPhone to introduce something unique, our longest optical zoom yet, 5x optical zoom at 120mm focal length. We designed a state-of-the-art telephoto camera. Compared to iPhone 14 Pro Max, it has a 25% larger sensor, 100% focus pixels, and an f/2.8 aperture, the largest of any smartphone at this optical range. 120mm is a very useful focal length. Great for close-ups, wildlife photos, in getting closer to the sports action.
iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:14:44
iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:14:24 iPhone can shoot high resolution photos in 24, 28 and 35mm focal length, a very important range for pro photographers. They can now quickly switch between these new options and even choose a new default lens, customizing their camera experience to their creative needs. iPhone 15 Pro also gets next generation portraits with focus and depth control, with 2 times better low light performance as you can see here in this beautiful shot. The smallest details of her expression are incredibly clear and contrasted with a dimly lit yet detailed background. You can really feel her emotion. In this photo, night mode is unbelievable. Now powered by photonic engine, we can capture more color and details than ever, from the warmth of her lipstick to the creases of her white dress. Enabled by the LiDAR scanner, night mode portraits also look stunning on iPhone 15 Pro. In this shot, we captured the intricate fabric of a sweater together with a beautiful bokeh of the lights in the background. And our latest Smart HDR delivers even more True to Life photos with greater dynamic range, as you can see here with the beautiful lighting on her face and the sun reflecting on her hair.
iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:13:54
iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:13:26 iPhone 15 Pro features a more advanced 48 megapixel main camera with an even larger sensor than iPhone 15. The camera includes a new nanoscale coating to reduce lens flare brings high resolution to everyday photos, enables more focal lengths, and has better low light performance for portraits and night mode. When using all pixels of the Quad Pixel sensor, the main camera can capture unbelievable detail, like every little scale of this lizard. In addition to 48 megapixel pro raw, users can now shoot in 48 megapixel heif, with 4 more resolution than before. And with the power of our computational photography, we have the new super high resolution default for the main camera. 24 megapixel photos merge the best of low-lighting details together.

iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:06:14 Without sending your personal data to the cloud, powering features like typing more accurately with autocorrect, lifting a subject from a photo background, or creating a personal lance for users at risk of speech loss, A17 Pro has dedicated engines that enable Pro features. Those include the ProRes codec and a display engine that powers ProMotion and the Always-On display. We also included a dedicated AV1 decoder, enabling more efficient and high-quality video experiences for streaming services. iPhone 15 Pro also has the new USB-C connector, but for our Pro models, we included a new USB controller, an A17 Pro, that enables new workflows not possible before. This is the first iPhone with USB 3 speeds up to 10 Gbps. Using an optional USB 3 cable, that's up to 20 times faster than USB 2, enabling much higher transfer speeds. The groundbreaking innovation of A17 Pro is a brand new GPU with a new Apple-designed shader architecture, our biggest redesign in the history of Apple GPUs. This is a Pro Class GPU that expands what's possible on iPhones even more. We focused on three things, improving performance and efficiency, running complex applications, and adding new rendering features.
iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:05:55 6-core GPU
iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:05:38
iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:05:12 Up to 10Gbps USB controller. USB 3.
iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:04:23 The A-Series chip powers every experience on iPhone. For iPhone 15 Pro, we developed a new generation of Apple Silicon that is a major step forward with changes throughout the entire chip, including a breakthrough new GPU. The foundation of this new chip is the transistor technology. This is the industry's first 3nm chip. These 3nm transistors are patterned using state-of-the-art extreme ultraviolet lithography. Elements of these transistors are just over 12 silicon atoms wide. A17 Pro features 19 billion of these transistors and means all of them to improve the performance, efficiency and features of our new chip. The new CPU features micro-architectural and design improvements for both our performance course and efficiency course. Our performance course are now up to 10% faster continuing to deliver the fastest single threaded performance in any smartphone, challenging even high end desktop PCs. Our efficiency course are also faster and remain unmatched in the industry, delivering three times the performance per watt on the competition. These are critical to iPhone as your most typical tasks run on these cores. The neural engine is now up to twice as fast from your chain learning models, allowing it to process up to 35 trillion operations
iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:01:21 From the very first iPhone we've had the Ring Silent Switch, a quick and easy way to mute iPhone sounds. We wanted to make this even better so with iPhone 15 Pro we are reinventing the experience with a customizable action button. By default it's still a simple Ring Silent Switch. To toggle between Ring and Silent you you simply press and hold the button to confirm your intent. You also feel a distinctive haptic feedback for each state. And you can choose from a set of actions and easily switch between them. For example, with a simple press, you can start voice memos to quickly record a new idea or launch camera to capture that important moment. Activate a favorite accessibility feature like live speech, or you can use shortcuts to open up an even wider set of options from simply watching your favorite app to running your own custom shortcuts.

iClarified - 2023-09-12 11:00:16 Introducing new Action button.
iClarified - 2023-09-12 10:59:51 Titanium also introduces a new refined brush texture, enabled by a unique multi-step process that includes precision machining, sanding, brushing, and blasting. And while anodizing is commonly used on titanium, we chose to use a PPD coating as added protection while introducing color. These Apple-designed coatings are engineered with nanometer precision and take up to 14 hours to complete, resulting in four gorgeous finishes. Black titanium and white titanium beautifully harmonize with the back glass. Blue titanium highlights the materials elegance and natural titanium celebrates its raw metallic nature. There is also a new internal chassis architecture that makes iPhone more repairable.

iClarified - 2023-09-12 10:57:40 iPhone 15 Pro is packed with industry-first innovations and features our users are going to love. Powered by our most advanced Apple Silicon yet, it delivers the most incredible photos and videos. And we are thrilled to introduce our astonishing new Titanium Design. This is the most premium material we've ever used in an iPhone enclosure. Titanium is incredibly strong and durable. Yet at the same time it is much lighter making these our lightest Pro models ever. You'll feel it as soon as you pick it up. Titanium is just beautiful. It feels fantastic with the new contoured edges and we are also introducing the thinnest borders ever on an iPhone. This enabled us to reduce iPhone dimensions without affecting the display size. So together with the lighter weight and new edges, iPhone 15 Pro is a delight to hold in your hand. In addition to the strength of titanium, iPhone 15 Pro has the toughest glass based materials in the industry, including the ceramic shield front which is only available on iPhone. And there are two great display sizes to choose from, 6.1" for iPhone 15 Pro and 6.7" for iPhone 15 Pro Max.
iClarified - 2023-09-12 10:56:34 Lightest pro models ever.
