Apple iPhone 15 series was recently launched in India on September 22nd. Since then, the first-ever Apple Store and other selling points have consistently flooded with buyers. Customers are crazy to buy this masterpiece, as it is loaded with some of the most unique features that a smartphone has ever had in history. The four variants that were launched during the event, under the Apple iPhone 2023 edition, were the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Plus, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Let’s get into the details of 9 features that are loaded for the first time in any smartphone.
9 First Ever Smartphone Features of Apple iPhone 15 Series
1. Titanium Frame in iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max
The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max come with a Titanium-aluminum hybrid body that uses an innovative “industry-first thermo-mechanical process.” These phones feature Titanium bands and a substructure made entirely from 100 percent recycled aluminum, making them both stronger and lighter.
2. Shoots 24MP High-Resolution Photos by Default
Most smartphones use pixel binning for better photos, including the new iPhone 15 series. But here’s the difference: while most phones pixel bin photos to 12MP, the new iPhones default to 24MP. This means they capture much sharper and more detailed pictures compared to the usual 12MP photos.
3. World’s First 3nm Technology Processor for iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro
The Apple iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max run on the A17 Pro, the industry’s first 3-nanometer chip. This chip is a game-changer, with the biggest-ever GPU redesign in Apple’s history, leading to faster performance, an improved neural engine, and the addition of Ray Tracing support.
4. Cameras Equipped With OIS and Autofocus Combined
Apple has introduced a new 5X telephoto lens and an innovative autofocus system called 3D sensor shift. This system, a first in the smartphone industry, combines OIS and autofocus, moving in all directions. According to Apple, this results in significantly improved image stabilization with 10,000 micro-movements.
5. Action Button (Customizable)
Adding an extra button to phones isn’t a new idea. However, what’s fresh is the introduction of a customizable Action button. This button allows users to assign it the function they prefer, making their phone more convenient to use. Users can either keep it as a mute switch, use it as a camera shutter voice recorder, or choose from various other options.
6. 4k 60FPS Recording Ability in iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max
The Apple iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are the first phones to support 4K60 video recording in ProRAW. This means you can capture smoother videos with more details for better post-processing.

7. Tetra Prism Design
Apple has introduced the Tetraprism design alongside the new 5x telephoto lens, which offers a 120mm focal length. This design cleverly integrates optical image stabilization and a 3D sensor-shift autofocus module. By bouncing the image four times, it allows for brighter and more detailed zoom shots.
8. Auto Portrait Mode Camera
Apple has introduced an improved Portrait mode with the iPhone 15 series. This upgraded feature automatically captures depth data when it detects a person, animal, or bird in the frame or when users tap to focus. It allows users to apply portrait effects later using the Photos app and adjust the focus after taking the photo.
9. Qi 2 Wireless Charging
The iPhone 15 series is the first to feature Qi 2 wireless charging standards, introduced earlier this year. This enhanced standard includes a Magnetic Power Profile for improved wireless charging.
