Apple iPhone fans in Kenya have reason to celebrate, the iPhone 15 series- iPhone 15, iPhone 15 plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are now available in the country.

The new line up is available at Apple authorized reseller stores in Kenya- Elite Digital Solutions (Apple Premium Reseller), Salute iWorld, Safaricom, Mac & More Solutions, Globoedge Solutions, powered by Redington.    

iPhone 15 Series may look similar with the previous models but they bring a plethora of changes under the skin. Firstly, Apple is finally making the transition to USB-C and ditching Lightning. This means universal cables for your phone, laptop and accessories. The cable is also much faster in data transfer, to be exact, it’s a USB 3.0 with speeds of up to 10 Gbps.

Apple iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max color options

Apple also replaced the stainless steel frame of the 14 series with titanium (on the Pro and Pro Max) which is lighter and more durable. The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus have aluminum frames.

Still on the frame, the place you would normally find the mute switch, you will instead get an action button. A press and hold will once again put the phone in silent mode by default, but you can assign one of a set of actions on a press or double press – you can finally quickly open the camera on an iPhone with a button.

It can now capture 48MP HEIF images alongside 48MP ProRAW and can choose between 28mm and 35mm digital zoom modes.

For the first time ever, an iPhone has a periscope camera but on the 15 Pro Max only. The periscope enables the Pro Max to zoom past 3x and up to 5x, or 120mm in 35mm equivalent terms. The lens itself is an f/2.8, the brightest on a 120mm camera on a phone. Zoom on the iPhone 15 Pro is handled by a 77mm 3x zoom camera with 1µm pixels and an f/2.8 lens.

Both the Pro models share a new 13mm f/2.2 1.4µm ultrawide with 100% focus pixels and macro focusing abilities.

The standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models feature the new 48MP Main camera with a 2x Telephoto lens right beside it.
