iPhone 15 Pro vs. iPhone 15 Plus: a surprisingly tough choice
Renders of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Plus next to each other.

The iPhone 15 lineup has been a huge success for Apple, with the refresh to its product line tempting many people to update to a newer model or to switch over from an Android. Apple has also be re-jigging the available iPhone options, and if you're after a large-sized iPhone then your luck is in as you now have more options than ever. In older generations, there was just one choice for a larger sized iPhone, which was the iPhone Pro Max. But since the iPhone 14 generation, Apple introduced a iPhone 14 Plus option, and that trend has continued with 2o23's iPhone 15 generation.

Those who are looking for an upgrade over the base iPhone now have two promising options to choose from: either the iPhone 15 Plus, which offers basically the same iPhone 15 experience but in a bigger size, or the higher-end (and more expensive) iPhone 15 Pro. The question of whether you should get the Plus or the Pro comes down to your priorities: the tradeoff is between a larger body and bigger screen for the Plus, or a more compact size but with higher specs of the Pro. There's also the cost to consider, with the Pro coming in at a higher price than the Plus. We've put the two options side by side to help you decide which option you should get if you're looking to upgrade.

iPhone 15 Pro vs. iPhone 15 Pro Max: what’s actually different?
Renders of the iPhone 15 Pro next to the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

The release of the iPhone 15 last year brought the usual flurry of interest on the new models, with people wondering whether the iPhone 15 Pro was worth the higher cost over the base iPhone 15. But if you decided that it was and you wanted a Pro, there's another issue to consider -- do you want an iPhone 15 Pro or an iPhone 15 Pro Max? Both models run the latest iOS 17.4 software, released in March 2024, but there are differences in the hardware between the two.

And the Pro versus Pro Max issue is more difficult to decide this time around. While previous iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max models were virtually identical expect for their size, with the iPhone 15 series, things have changed. This makes this the first time since the 2020 iPhone 12 Pro Max that you need to weigh up more significant differences than just size when selecting between the Pro and the Pro Max. We've got all the details to help you decide, though, so read on to find out about specs and comparisons.
