Finally, the iPhone 15 is out. It has a design that feels just right. The aerospace-grade aluminum frame is highly durable, and the new contoured edges feel even better in your hand. The innovative new design features back glass with colour infused throughout the material. A custom dual ion exchange process for the glass and an aerospace-grade aluminum enclosure help make iPhone 15 incredibly durable. Using chemistry, Apple perfected the creation of colour. Superfine metallic ions embed colour into the glass — with a unique formulation for each colour. Then, the glass is polished with nanocrystalline particles and etched to create a textured matte finish. The phone measures 147.6 x 71.6 x 7.8 mm and weighs 171g. Moreover, 75% recycled aluminum is in the enclosure and available in Black, Blue, Green, Yellow, and Pink.
Apple iPhone 15 is dependably durable. The Ceramic Shield front is tougher than any smartphone glass. The Apple phone is remarkably resistant. iPhone 15 is splash, water, and dust resistant.
Dynamic Island bubbles up alerts and Live Activities — so you don’t miss them while doing something else. You can track your next ride, see who’s calling, check your flight status, and more.

Your user experience is even more enhanced on the thin-bezelled, 6.1-inch, 91.3 cm2 (~86.4% screen-to-body ratio) screen. With 1179 x 2556 pixels, 19.5:9 ratio (~461 ppi density) resolution, playing games, watching videos and browsing through multi-media will be more than just fun as you indulge and immerse yourself in such HD+ resolution. Moreover, a Ceramic Shield glass protects the high-resolution Super Retina XDR OLED screen, making it scratch and break-free from accidental falls.
