Apple’s iPhone 15

A glimpse into tomorrow’s smartphone
Apples+iPhone+15

Apple introduced the new iPhone 15 on Friday, Sept. 22, and is ready for purchase. The iPhone 15 has the newest features on the market, such as a 48MP camera, durable color-infused glass aluminum design- and a USB-C charging port.

Avery Bellish ’24 said she purchased the new iPhone 15 Pro Max and has mixed feelings towards it.

“Having the phone has been pretty nice, Bellish said. “The new features are cool, but the one thing I’m not a fan of is the new charging port with USB instead of the regular port.”

The phone is made of titanium, which makes the phone lighter and tougher. It also comes in many different colors, such as pink, green, yellow, blue and black. The iPhone 15 can come in two sizes: 6.1 or 6.7 inches. If a customer likes a bigger screen, 6.7’’ is the one for you according to Bellish.

“I personally have and love the bigger phones which is why I got the 6.7’’ one, also known as the Pro Max,” Bellish said. “I like the bigger screen and I don’t really put it in my pocket, I just hold my phone around.”

The iPhone 15 has the new dynamic island feature, which bubbles up alerts and live activities so you never miss a thing while doing something else. Both phones are waterproof and durable for anything that comes in your way. As well, there is a new phone contact system. Buyers can put two phones together by the top and wait about 30 seconds to see a whole profile of someone including their name, last name, and profile picture.

Mia Fillmore ’25 said she also has the same gripes with the new phone as Bellish did.

“The new call features are pretty fun, but to be honest it’s kind of annoying to have the new charger feature,” Fillmore said. “I had to get a new one and it’s hard to find people to borrow from when I can’t find mine.”

With all the great features, it still comes down to the new charging port and how much these phones cost in all. As many want good pictures for memories, it’s good to have the best quality with it, but isn’t worth purchasing off the shelf according to Fillmore.

“I don’t exactly think it’d be worth buying this phone at full price,” Fillmore said. “With exchanging your phone for (the iPhone 15), I like the camera quality and the battery life,” Fillmore ’25 said.
