Apple has launched iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. The world hysteria about Apple's new product is great, however there are several reasons why this new product should not make you so enthusiastic, especially if you have a good iPhone of an older generation.

To put it another way, here are some reasons why the iPhone 15 series might disappoint you.

The screen remains the same

Apart from the Dynamic Island – Apple's stylish display cutout – on the standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, all models in the iPhone 15 range are expected to have the same display as their predecessor.

The standard iPhone 15 has the iPhone 14's 6.1-inch Super XDR OLED display, which offers the same 2532 x 1170 pixel resolution and a static 60 Hz refresh rate. The iPhone 15 Pro is also expected to retain the 6.1-inch Super Retina display of the 14 Pro. The Pro Max also looks set to retain the 6.7-inch equivalent of its predecessor.

To be clear: All of these screens are really great, but for the most part they haven't improved since the iPhone 13 lineup. So if you're one of those excited to get a brighter iPhone screen you'll probably have to wait at least until next year.

Do not expect increased performance

The iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will have very fast processors: the first two phones are expected to inherit the A16 Bionic and the last two have the A17 Bionic. However, Apple's annual chip updates are made more for longevity than for a real, tangible increase in performance. Most high-end iPhones are still insanely fast, capable of juggling countless apps at any given time, and the iPhone 15 isn't any faster than, say, the iPhone 13 Pro.

The high price does not justify the quality

The prices of the iPhone 15 range range from 959 euros iPhone 15 with 128 GB to 1,969 euros iPhone Pro Max with 1 TB, which is also the most expensive model.

But is it worth buying an iPhone with 128GB of memory? At a time when it is claimed that the quality of the photos will make them "heavier", would 128 GB be enough? Most likely, you will regret your purchase very soon./ VoxNews
