This detailed comparison of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro will help you understand the precise differences between the two devices. We’ll also look at the differences between the cameras, which is a common inquiry from those considering purchasing an iPhone 15.

The iPhone 15 Pro costs $999, while the iPhone 15 costs $799. Having stated that, I understand your questions. Are the features of the iPhone 15 Pro truly worth the additional $200?

No, I won’t advise you on which phone to purchase. Rather, I will outline the distinctions between the two and allow you to select the gadget that best suits your needs. Shall we begin this iPhone 15 vs. iPhone 15 Pro comparison?

iPhone 15 vs iPhone 15 Pro Price

According to Apple’s official website, the iPhone 15 starts at $800 and contains the following specifications:

  • 128 GB of capacity for storage
  • 6.1-inch display, A16 Bionic Processor, and 6GB of RAM
  • Remember that obtaining additional storage will come at a price. The price of the iPhone 15 with 256GB of storage is $900. Based on my own experience, I would suggest purchasing the 256GB model, especially if you enjoy storing a lot of images and videos. If not, you will be plagued with a “Storage full” error message on the 128GB model, which would require you to remove your priceless media files after just a year or less of use.

If you have a lot of money to spend, you can purchase the $1,100 iPhone 15 with 512GB of storage. However, if you can afford it, you would be better off upgrading to the identically priced iPhone 15 Pro with 256GB of storage.

Speaking of the iPhone 15 Pro, its specifications are as follows, and it can be purchased on Apple’s official website for a starting price of $999.

  • 128 GB of capacity for storage
  • RAM 8GB, A17 Pro 6.1-inch screen
  • Packed with 1TB of storage, the priciest iPhone 15 Pro will cost you $1,500. However, if you have that much money to spend, you might as well get the $1,400 iPhone 15 Pro Max with 512GB of storage instead of the $1,200 model.

Once more, if you have an abundance of media that you would like to store, I suggest upgrading to at least 256GB of storage. But the 128GB version ought to work just fine if you have cloud storage or don’t mind losing a few things along the way.

iPhone 15 vs iPhone 15 Pro Design

Now cue Sia, belting out “Titanium” at full volume! The main selling feature of the iPhone 15 Pro is its titanium frame, which makes it stronger and lighter than the stainless-steel chassis of its predecessor.

There is no trace of titanium on the iPhone 15, which is encased in an aluminum casing. Oh no, womp! That being said, it weighs slightly less than its Pro sibling—6.6 ounces as opposed to 6.03 ounces.

In terms of color, I contend that the hues of the iPhone 15 are more vibrant and enjoyable.

It Comes in Five Colors:

  • Pink
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Black

The iPhone 15 Pro is a little bit more low-key — more mature and sophisticated.

Its hues are more understated, minimalist, and urbane:

  • Titanium in its natural state
  • Titanium Blue
  • Titanium, both black and white
  • The Action Button feature of the iPhone 15 Pro, which is situated on the left side of the chassis, is one minor distinction between the two phones. Conversely, the iPhone 15 retains its extremely dull mute switch. Why is the Action Button so fantastic? It can be set up to launch any task or application that you like.

Since I use the Notes app so often, I’ve configured my iPhone 15 Pro Max’s Action Button to start it, but there are countless more options. The Action Button can be configured to open any desired app.

iPhone 15 vs iPhone 15 Pro display

The 6.1-inch display on both the iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Pro is actually the same. If you’re looking for something larger (6.7 inches, for example), you might want to acquire the iPhone 15 Pro Max or iPhone 15 Plus.

Moreover, their resolution is the same at 2,256 x 1,179 pixels.

The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro Max feature identical screens, however their display technologies differ. For instance, the iPhone 15 lacks both ProMotion technology and an Always-On display; in contrast, the Pro model is equipped with these features.

ProMotion: What Is It? All it means is that “This phone has a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz.” Stated differently, the iPhone 15 Pro boasts a snappier display that adjusts to your working style. In case you’re just perusing an article, the speed of refreshment will decrease. On the other hand, the refresh rate will increase if you launch a mobile game that moves quickly.

On the other hand, the iPhone 15’s 60Hz refresh rate will only seem sluggish to those who have previously used a phone with a refresh rate of 90Hz or above. Furthermore, because the screen is always on, an Aways-On display makes it easy for the uninitiated to quickly access information like the clock, widgets, and more. With the iPhone 15, I can’t say the same thing.

Both have the snazzy Dynamic Island featured at the top of the display, and plus, the duo can climb to a peak brightness of 2,000, according to Apple.

iPhone 15 vs iPhone 15 Pro Cameras

One of the main features of smartphones is its camera, and the iPhone 15 Pro boasts a superior camera than the iPhone 15, as you would have predicted. The camera specifications are broken down as follows:

  • 48MP wide-angle, 12MP ultrawide, and 12MP self-portrait cameras on the iPhone 15; no telephoto iPhone 15 Pro
  • 48-megapixel wide angle, 12-megapixel ultrawide, 12-megapixel selfie, with 3 x optical zoom telephoto

Because the iPhone 15 lacks a telephoto lens, its zoomed-in photos will be of lower quality than those taken with the iPhone 15 Pro. Not to mention, the ultrawide lens on the iPhone 15 Pro has a somewhat wider aperture, so low-light photos taken in dimly lit areas should turn out better.

In contrast to the iPhone 15 Pro, the iPhone 15 does not enable Night Mode portraiture, Apple ProRAW, or macro photography. (This is not to be confused with the iPhone 15’s Night Mode. Simply put, portrait mode is not supported.)

iPhone 15 vs iPhone 15 Pro Performance

With its New A17 Pro Bionic CPU, the iPhone 15 Pro is unquestionably faster and more powerful than the iPhone 15. The A16 Bionic chipset, which was present in the iPhone 14 Pro versions, is now shown in the iPhone 15.

In all honesty, the A16 Bionic remains an exceptional, lightning-fast processor that is actually too powerful for activities requiring mobility; just think of the immense capability of the A17 Pro.

Just know that the A17 Pro is capable of state-of-the-art AI computations and visuals, without getting too technical. In fact, the iPhone 15 Pro is capable of running high-fidelity titles like Death Stranding and Resident Evil Village. The iPhone 15 Pro will also support Assassin’s Creed Mirage; however, it won’t be released until June 6.

It’s also important to note that the iPhone 15 Pro has 8GB of RAM, compared to the iPhone 15’s 6GB. This implies that the latter will be more adept at handling several jobs at once.

iPhone 15 vs iPhone 15 Pro Battery life

  • Apple ran a video playback test on the iPhone 15 and it lasted 20 hours on a single charge.
  • Compare that to the iPhone 15 Pro, which lasted 23 hours on the same test.

iPhone 15 vs iPhone 15 Pro Which should you buy?

In Conclusion, the Action Button on the iPhone 15 Pro is greatly underappreciated in my opinion, while it is absent on the iPhone 15. Furthermore, the camera technology of the iPhone 15 Pro is better. If you’re serious about getting better close-ups, it might be worth the Extra $200.

With the iPhone 15 Pro’s A17 Pro processor providing a GPU boost, the higher-end model is a better option if you enjoy playing mobile games.

  • If Neither of those features appeals to you, though, the entry-level iPhone 15 will suffice.
