Do you really need an iPhone 15 Pro? 3 reasons it’s like setting your money on fire


Protect Your Access to the Internet

iPhone 15 rumors are plenty, but the most exciting additions revolve around the upcoming Pro models. Rumors suggest significantly longer battery life, a superior processor, upgraded RAM, sturdier build, and a new type of camera that will allow for the furthest optical zoom iPhone has ever seen.

But all of these changes result in a rumored price increase of $100 to $200 depending on the Pro model. iPhones are already expensive, especially when compared to Google’s widely affordable Pixel series with our beloved Pixel 7a in particular retailing as low as $499. And if those aforementioned iPhone rumors are true, you’ll be spending $1,099 for iPhone 15 Pro and $1,299 for iPhone 15 Pro Max. Is this upgrade truly worth your money?

The iPhone 15 Pro is rumored to be built with a titanium frame. Previous models were made of stainless steel, and that new material could result in a stronger yet lighter exterior. It’s hard to deny that’s an improvement altogether, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s implemented throughout the series if it gets cheaper to produce in the future.

There’s also plenty of talk on the internet about the periscope lens, which will be exclusively available on the iPhone 15 Pro Max. This results in a 6x optical zoom, whereas the original iPhone models can only manage half of that before diving into digital, artifact-ridden territory.

Increased processing power thanks the to the A17 Bionic chip being put into both Pro models was expected, but the rumor that it will have a 3nm architecture was not. The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company chairman Mark Liu is even going so far as to suggest that it will use up to 35% less power as a result. We’re also expecting a bump from 6GB of RAM to 8GB.

These rumors make it clear why the iPhone 15 is rumored to remain at $799, while the Pro Max could be as high as $1,299. These are no small upgrades, but they’re not for everyone.
