While they will look fairly similar, some important differences exist between the iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Pro.
First off, the 15 Pro has a titanium build - making it the first titanium-body iPhone. It's therefore a lot lighter and more durable than past iPhone designs.
It's also powered by the A17 Bionic chip, as opposed to the older A16 powering the 15. This means that processing speed and power will be noticeably better in the iPhone 15 Pro.
Another noticeable difference between the two models is the type of USB-C on offer. Standard iPhone 15s, while also USB-C, are only capable of USB 2 speeds (which is the same as lightning cables), whereas Pro models have USB 3 speeds of up to 10Gbps. This will make transferring big files between your iPhone and another device an absolute breeze.
And, of course, the iPhone 15 Pro has a new action button to replace the mute toggle. You'll be able to customise this to open your favourite apps, start a voice note, or use Siri shortcuts. And you can still mute your phone with a long-press, too.
Both this year's and last year’s Pro models are excellent, top-quality smartphones. Both the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 15 Pro have fantastic camera setups with a 48MP main camera, a powerful processor and excellent battery life.
However, the iPhone 15 Pro has the new, faster USB-C charger and the new 'action button', which you can customise to open various different apps, accessibility features or shortcuts. You'll also get better low light photography and reduced lens flare thanks to a new camera coating Apple has added.
That being said, the newer, more advanced handset comes with a higher price tag. So, if these additional fancy features aren’t a huge priority for you, you could save a lot of money by opting for the iPhone 14 Pro and still get a top-level smartphone.
Apple's biggest competitor in the smartphone market is probably Samsung, and the iPhone 15 Pro stands as strong competitor for the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. A number of the new features introduced in the iPhone 15 Pro have been standard in the S23 Ultra (and even the S22 Ultra) for a while now. Samsung has had a customisable action button for years, and its 10x optical zoom puts Apple's 3x zoom to shame.
However, you can't really compete with the iPhone's design and usability which will always make it a fan favourite.
The iPhone 15 Pro boasts a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display, with a ProMotion refresh rate and always-on display.
But it's worth noting that this is almost exactly the same display as last year's iPhone 14 Pro, so there isn't a big difference to justify the price point if this is an important factor for you.
As the pro version of Apple’s flagship phone, the iPhone 15 Pro has an amazing camera set-up.
One new camera feature in the 15 Pro is in Portrait mode. Apple's new focus and depth control lets you change the area of your photo that's in focus, so you can have a clearer background and more blurry foreground if you wanted to focus on something further in the distance.
The iPhone has always been known to be the best smartphone for video. With excellent past features like Cinematic Mode and significantly high image quality, Apple's often above the resat in this department.
As a result, there are only some slight improvements to the iPhone 15 Pro's video capabilities this year. This includes a new second-generation stabilisation feature, which makes recording on the move the smoothest experience yet. It also lets you record 4K in 60fps for the first time, to add to the smooth quality.
Plus, in a feature that's tied into Apple's recently-announced Vision Pro VR headset, the new Pro lets you record spatial video in 3D, so you can step back into your memories when using the headset.
Ru Bhikha, Uswitch mobiles expert, says:
“While the iPhone 15 Plus comes with a ‘bigger’ battery, Apple has remained tight-lipped thus far about how this translates to battery life. Our recent research found that battery life was the number one consideration for Brits when buying a new smartphone.
“The new iPhone 15 Pro will be slightly cheaper than last year’s models. Prices start at £999 - down £100 from the £1,099 the iPhone 14 Pro cost in 2022.
“While it’s positive to see a drop in price, these phones are still a big investment. As households are feeling the pinch more than ever, it’s important to research what’s on offer before splashing out.
The iPhone 15 Pro is an impressive phone with an impressive price tag, so it’s important to compare the best iPhone 15 Pro contracts carefully before committing to one.
You’ll want to ensure you’re getting enough data each month so you’re not going over your limit and being charged extra. However, don’t overestimate how much data you actually need and end up wasting it. You can use our mobile data calculator to better understand how much data you’ll need each month before signing up for a contract.
Another thing to look out for is the upfront cost. When signing up for an iPhone 15 Pro contract, especially so soon after its launch, there will usually be sizeable upfront costs to pay to get your hands on the latest iPhone. The more you pay upfront, the lower amount you'll have to pay each month, which could save you in the long term.

You can get an iPhone 15 Pro with no upfront cost from networks such as Sky Mobile, Tesco Mobile and Three. However, contracts with no upfront cost will mean your monthly payments are higher, averaging around £56 or £57 per month on a 24-month contract.
Plenty of networks like iD, Vodafone and Three offering iPhone 15 Pro deals with unlimited data. However, this will also increase your monthly costs to around £55 in many cases. You can use our mobile data calculator to work out how much data you actually need, and if you could save money by signing up for less data each month.
iD Mobile has some great iPhone 15 Pro pre-order deals that work out to a total cost of around £1,050 to £1,075. Considering the cost of the handset directly from Apple is £999, this works out to just £2-£3 a month for 100GB of data on your brand new iPhone 15 Pro.
