Apple Unveils iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max

The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max package up a lot of small improvements, like a new USB-C port, a customizable Action Button, and a host of camera updates that make for a big step forward altogether.

At the end of the day, I am impressed with the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max. I recommend both for anyone coming from a 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max or older. If you're trying to decide between the 15 Pro and the 15 Pro Max, that 5x telephoto on the Pro Max is compelling. But if you don't take a lot of zoomed in photos, it might be best to stick with the smaller Pro size. Also, if you're considering buying either phone there are a number of trade-in discounts you should consider.

Tom's Guide
The iPhone 15 Pro is a stellar flagship phone for the price, offering the fastest performance around, a lighter and more compact titanium design and an Action button that's easy to customize. I just wish the Action button could do more than one thing at a time. The cameras also perform very well with welcome Portrait mode enhancements and even better low-light pics. However, I wish Apple could find a way to squeeze the same 5x optical zoom from the iPhone 15 Pro Max into the iPhone 15 Pro, and competing Android flagships offer double the digital zoom range. If it were my money, I'd splurge for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, but the iPhone 15 Pro is a sleek powerhouse for those who prefer a mini Pro.

Apple in many ways is working inside the iPhone box to enable more user choice and flexibility without having to learn anything new. So many bits of the iPhone 15 Pro Max are about choice. The Action Button lets you define what behaviors are most important to you, the wide range of lenses available give you better framing and utility options, hell even the legally mandated USB-C gives you professional grade video shooting and external monitor support. Yes, the iPhone as a class of device is a mature instrument. But the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max prove that there is so much more room for Apple to grow the archetype. It will just be growing inwards vs. outwards.
