If the'iPhone 15 and the'iPhone 14 are similar in all points regarding their size and weight, it is still necessary to point out that the iPhone 15 sees the arrival of the Dynamic Island, a feature appreciated by fans of the brand, which allows you to quickly find out about alerts and other current activities.

As for colors, the iPhone 14offers much more fantasy than its little brother, offering relatively classic colors as we have already seen on the Pro and Max models in the range. Thus, the iPhone 15 offers Black, Pink, Yellow, Blue and Green. Let us still appreciate the pink which is very different from the others, and which should be more successful thanks to the recent success of the Barbie film.

Where the new iPhone 15 differs most from the 14, it is obviously by its USB-C port. After years of differentiating itself from other manufacturers by offering the proprietary Lightning port, Europe has brought Apple into line by forcing the American brand to comply with the most widespread standard. So, the iPhone 15 is forced to adopt a USB-C port, which makes it more practical in the sense that chargers and cables of this type are more common.

  • Verdict: iPhone 15 for its USB-C port

It is probably at the screen level that the disappointment will be the greatest in regarding the 'iPhone 15. Indeed, we will notice almost no difference with the screen of the iPhone 14, where we would obviously have appreciated a higher refresh rate than the 60Hz once again proposed. On the other hand, Apple finally abandons its notch dating back to 2017, for a more current design integrating the Dynamic Island.

  • Verdict: iPhone 15 for Dynamic Island

With the passage of the iPhone 13 to iPhone 14, Applehad created controversy by using the same processor in its most recent model. The Cupertino company is doing the same thing again, by equipping this time its iPhone 15 with the A16 Bionic processor, itself equipping l 'iPhone 14 Pro and the Pro Max. Well, obviously, the chip that equips the current high-end iPhone will be more than powerful enough to suit owners of the brand's smartphones.

As for the RAM, Apple does not change not really its formula here either, retaining 6 GB, but this time in LPDDR5, more efficient than the LPDDR4X which equips the iPhone 14.

As for the operating system, it remains identical, the iPhone 14 will also move to iOS 17 when this one will be available. On the other hand, the iPhone 15will be able to benefit from the Dynamic Island, unlike its big brother.

  • Verdict: iPhone 15 for its hardware evolution

If there is one point on which we can all agree, it is that we would like much more autonomy, regardless of the smartphone model . This year, Apple gives us the pleasure of increasing the capacity of its battery by 18%, which brings us to a capacity of 3877 mAh for the iPhone 15 compared to the 3279 mAh of the iPhone 14. Obviously, we often recall this since it is THE big change in this series 15, but recharging will now be done via a USB-C port.

  • Verdict: iPhone 15 for its battery with 18% higher capacity

While the iPhone 14 is equipped with a 12MP main lens, the iPhone 15 takes a big leap forward with a 48MP main lens, which will obviously give better photos, but also more readable zooms. As for the selfie camera, it remains the same.

  • Verdict: iPhone 15 for its new 48MP sensor

This year we have all experienced price increases on everything imaginable. Well, it was also this year that Apple decided not to increase the price of its basic iPhone, but to do even better, lower the price of this one! So, if the iPhone 14 had been launched at 1019 euros, < strong>the iPhone 15 will be available at a price of 969 euros. A pricing policy rather contrary to what Applehas gotten us used to it in the past, but it's obviously not us who are going to complain.

  • Verdict: iPhone 15, with a lower launch price than the iPhone 14

Many improvements from the iPhone 15 were borrowed from the iPhone 14 Pro, without going as far in terms of the proposition. Therefore, it is difficult to consider the iPhone 15 as a completely new smartphone.

On the other hand, when compared with the iPhone 14, this one is better in every way, Apple having made great efforts such as moving to 48MP main lensso as not to give the feeling that this iPhonebasic” is a version to buy by default when you are short on budget.

We will also like its USB-C port, which will finally make life easier for many users of iPhone and other Apple products. Obviously, we will also appreciate the lower price of the iPhone 15, when the cost of living is only increasing.< /p>
