The long wait is over, Apple fans! The tech giant has finally unveiled its newest lineup of gadgets in an annual event held at its headquarters in California yesterday, Sept. 12.

Among the new devices announced was the most-anticipated iPhone 15 and its deluxe sibling iPhone 15 Pro. After countless rumors and speculations about this series, Apple confirms that these smartphones will be ditching the brand’s signature Lightning port and moving on to USB-C.

Moreover, they will be equipped with Apple’s latest and “most powerful” chips so far: the A16 Bionic Chip for iPhone 15 and A17 Pro for its Pro version, which promises faster performance and smoother images for graphically demanding games.

Other upgrades include the 48-megapixel cameras that can provide “super-high-resolution" photos and videos, the titanium-made body that makes them lighter to carry, thinner bezels, and zoom capabilities of up to five times.

Aside from the iPhone 15 series, the company also revealed the new Apple Watch Series 9, equipped with a new dual-core CPU that’s about twice as fast as the Series 8 watch. It also boasts a display that’s two times brighter and carbon-neutral case and band combinations, a first among Apple’s products.
