When Apple unveiled the iPhone 15 and its bigger brother, the iPhone 15 Plus, the world stopped for a moment. Well, at least the part of the world that is obsessed with all things Apple logo. But what does this new phone actually bring?

 

 

 

For starters, both phones boast the latest in display technology that's so sharp you might think you're looking out a window rather than at a phone. And the camera? Well, if you thought your previous selfies looked good, wait until you see what this miracle of technology can do. It is important that they "improved" the main camera, which now offers 2x optical zoom.

But let's get to the thing we all really want to know: How long will the battery last? Apple claims it will last all day. But does that mean a day of social networking, watching videos and gaming, or just a day of texting and calling? Time will tell.

Of course, as every year, there are skeptics. Those who say it's just another iPhone and not worth all the hype. But isn't that part of the charm? Every year we wait to see what Apple brings to the table, and every year we wonder if this really is the best iPhone yet.

Better for the Environment (and for Apple's image)

iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are designed with the environment in mind. Well, at least that's what Apple says. As the company continues its 2030 goal of making every product carbon neutral (from design to production to customer use)—and no, we're not talking about diet—the company is prioritizing clean electricity throughout its supply chain and designing products with recycled and other low carbon materials. iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus now use even more recycled material, such as 100% recycled cobalt in the battery. And no, it's not some new superfood. Both models also include 75 percent recycled aluminum in the housing and 100 percent recycled rare earths in all magnets. The iPhone 15 series meets Apple's high standards for energy efficiency and is free of mercury, PVC and beryllium. More than 99 percent of packaging is fiber-based, bringing Apple closer to its goal of completely eliminating plastic from packaging by 2025.

To further reduce our impact on the planet, Apple will no longer use leather in any new Apple products, including iPhone accessories. Instead, they're introducing the new FineWoven Pouch with MagSafe and FineWoven Wallet with MagSafe, made from a durable and stylish micro-weave with a soft, suede-like feel. The material is made from 68 percent post-consumer recycled content and has significantly lower carbon emissions compared to leather. So if you thought Apple was all about technology, you're wrong. Now they are also fashion gurus!

At the end of the day, the iPhone 15 is just another phone in a long line of phones. But for many, it's more than just a phone. It's a statement. It is a status symbol. And for many, it's the best part of the year.

So, is the iPhone 15 worth all the media hype? That's up to you. But one thing is certain: Apple will continue to surprise us, and we will continue to wait to see what comes next.
