Apple goes big on mobile gaming this year

With advanced graphics features like ray-tracing, the iPhone 15 Pro models are being touted as the best mobile gaming platform by Apple. Console games like Resident Evil Village will be able to run natively on the iPhone.

Apple A17 Pro unveiled

The A17 Pro chip will be powering the Apple iPhone 15 Pro models, manufactured on the 3nm process. The chip is powered by 19 billion transistors and has micro-architectural design enhancements for performance and power cores. Apple claims the power cores match desktop performance, while the chip’s neural engine is twice as fast compared to the predecessor. There’s even ray-tracing onboard for superior gaming visuals

Called the ‘most Pro iPhones ever created by Apple’ by Tim Cook, the latest iPhone Pro models feature titanium builds. These iPhones are also the lightest iPhones ever, with the slimmest bezels on any Apple handset. 

The 48MP sensors on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are larger than the sensors on the non-Pro models and is capable of shooting 48MP RAW images.

The iPhone 15 Pro stays at the same price of $999, but the iPhone 15 Pro Max jumps to $1,199 and now you get 256 GB by default. Last year’s iPhone 14 Pro Max was $1,099, but this is the same price as the 256-GB model.

All the new iPhones are up for preorder on Friday.

Apple says the 15 Pro is the first phone with 10Gbps transfer speeds, which will make getting photos and videos (or large files of any kind) off your phone vastly easier

The Action Button, which replaces the ringer switch on the left side of the iPhone Pro, is a new button that you can customize to run shortcuts, bring up accessibility features, open the camera, turn on the flashlight, and more. By default, it’s still a ringer switch — but you’re going to want to use it to do more

The Pros both have Super Retina XDR displays with ProMotion and support both the always-on display and the new StandBy mode in iOS 17.

You can now change your default lens and shoot at multiple focal lengths — 24mm, 28mm, and 35mm — within the main camera. You can also get up to 5x optical zoom, the most Apple has ever offered, to 120mm focal length.

The price of the iPhone 15 Pro in India starts at Rs 89,990 for the lowest storage model and goes up to Rs 1,41,990 for the highest storage variant

Resident Evil on the iPhone 15 Pro

Apple is heavily promoting the iPhone 15 Pro for gaming and you can expect titles like Resident Evil Village, the Resident Evil 4 remake and Assassin’s Creed to be available on the device soon
