Everything about the iPhone 15 cameras

Apple releases 4 new iPhone 15 phones. The iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max all have good specifications. And the cameras are also of top quality. In this blog, you can read all about the iPhone 15 cameras and how they work.

Cameras of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus

The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus have the same cameras. Just like the iPhone 14, they have 2 cameras on the back and 1 on the front.

What is new is that the main camera has many more megapixels. This goes from 12 megapixels to 48 megapixels. This means your photos contain more detail.

The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus also have a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens. This allows you to take good group photos that fit everyone.

Thanks to Night Mode, you can also take clear photos in less light. Compared to their predecessors, low-light performance has been significantly improved.

This means that you take extra beautiful photos in less light. And thanks to the optical image stabilization in both cameras, your photos are always sharp.

The front selfie camera also takes photos in 12 megapixels. Thanks to the aperture of f/1.9, the camera captures more light and your selfies are sharp. The autofocus ensures beautiful portrait photos.

Cameras of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max

With the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max you’re in the right place if you want to take the best photos. They both have 4 cameras.

They have the same 2 cameras on the back as the other 2 models. With the addition of a 3rd camera. This 12-megapixel camera has optical zoom. That is zooming in without loss of quality.

On the iPhone 15 Pro, this is a telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom. On the iPhone 15 Pro Max, this is a lens with 5x optical zoom. As if you were photographing through a periscope.

There is the same selfie camera on the front as on the other iPhone 15 models. It takes photos in 12 megapixels and has autofocus. For the most beautiful portraits.

The 3 most important iPhone 15 improvements

The iPhone 15 camera has a number of improvements compared to its predecessors. The most important:

  1. All iPhone 15 phones now have a Dynamic Island instead of the notch.
  2. The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus now also have a 48-megapixel camera.
  3. The camera sensor of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max has been improved. Light is thus converted into images even better, which ensures extra realistic photos.

New features of the iPhone 15 cameras

There are many advantages to the iPhone 15 cameras. Especially in combination with iOS 17. Apple’s latest operating system. You can do these things with it:

Easier to take straight photos 

You want photos of a landscape or the setting sun to be straight. This is even easier with iOS 17. You no longer need the grid, because the iPhone now has a built-in spirit level. 

Create animated stickers from objects from your photo

It is now already possible to select and copy objects from a photo. iOS 17 goes one step further. For example, have you taken a nice photo of your cat?

Then you can select your cat and make a sticker of it. To use in WhatsApp. If it’s a live photo, you can even turn it into an animated sticker.

Zoom in with the iPhone 15: What is possible? 

Sometimes you can’t be close to the subject you want to photograph. Then you’ll be happy that you can zoom in with your iPhone 15 camera. The difference in camera also provides different possibilities.
