mcroomers Videographer Dan Barbera used an iPhone 15 Pro Max without a case to test durability, and the titanium frame was far more durable than stainless steel. Even though it has been dropped a bit, there are no notable scratches or scuffs.
There were early reports of overheating in the iPhone 15 Pro models, but Apple addressed this with a software update. The iPhone 15 Pro stays cool to the touch most of the time, even when playing games. The device may occasionally generate heat while charging, but this is not a constant problem.
The battery life is about the same as that of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, and there doesn’t seem to be any major improvement.
Apple added an action button on the iPhone 15 Pro model, but it’s not widely used. It’s hard to get into the habit of using a new button for something you’ve been doing for years using other workflows.
As for the camera, the best feature so far is the automatic portrait mode, which allows you to adjust the focus after capturing the image without having to turn on portrait mode. It’s fun to use. You can tap each subject in the photo to change focus from foreground to background. A 5x telephoto lens is also useful.
