I’m upgrading from the iPhone 12 Pro to the iPhone 15 Pro. Here’s what I’ve noticed as the biggest differences so far.
Despite all the talk about the titanium case, I barely notice the difference in the hand. It’s slightly lighter but now more top heavy—presumably because of the large size increase in the protruding camera sensors.
The high-refresh rate screen is a big improvement. Scrolling feels like moving around high-gloss magazine paper. It’s smooth and sharp without the blur you see on when scrolling quickly.
The always-on display was surprising at first. It seems pretty handy for how I use the phone by putting it on my desk when I’m working.
The new camera options are pretty great. I briefly tried out taking pictures in RAW and the ProRes codecs. I read about the new Apple Log video recording which makes it easier to adjust video by starting with flatter colors to start (that’s my understanding at least). With a little bit of effort, photos and videos can feel more professional to my eye at least.
