The iPhone 15 series is without a doubt the best Apple has ever produced; this is true every year when new models are introduced. However, if you upgrade your iPhone every year, you might not notice a significant improvement.
There are three additional things you can bank on every Fall, in addition to the lower temperatures and maybe changing foliage: pumpkin spice lattes, the beginning of football seasons, and then most especially the new iPhone models.
It typically pays to wait a few years to really see a difference compared to what you already have because, with each fall, they get slightly better.
But you ask, What about the titanium design?
For the Pro versions, upgrading from stainless steel to titanium is a smart idea because it’s stronger and lighter than other materials. I’ll be honest and say that I was taken aback by how lightweight the new iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max versions were.
Is it sufficient to upgrade? No, not at all. I contend that it’s more of a “nice to have” function than a “need to have.”
However, despite speculation that circulated prior to the presentation, the iPhone 15 won’t be more expensive than comparable models from the previous year. Apple impressed with its extensive list of changes for all models.
I particularly appreciated how the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max now have a multifunctional Action button in place of the mute switch on the left side. This feature is useful for rapidly starting an app, but calling Siri to complete the task is still probably faster.
Take advantage of aggressive trade-in schemes offered by Apple, carriers, or stores if you decide to upgrade.
