1/5 The iPhone 15 Plus gets the same 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display as its predecessor, although the peak brightness has now been bumped up to a staggering 2000 nits, which is super useful especially outdoors. However, it still sticks with the 60Hz refresh rate. Therefore, the lack of ProMotion is a bummer. (Shaurya Tomer/HT Tech)

2/5 Finally! Apple has got rid of the notch and brought the Dynamic Island, which debuted with the iPhone 14 Pro models, to the iPhone 15 Plus. It is a nifty little feature that is useful when you’re streaming music, navigating routes, ordering food, or doing all of those things simultaneously. (Shaurya Tomer/HT Tech)

3/5 The shiny glass at the back is no more, and the iPhone 15 Plus now gets a new soft, matte finish which is less of a fingerprint magnet. While the smartphone’s design is almost identical to its predecessor, it now gets slightly rounded edges which makes it far more comfortable to hold for longer periods. And yes, the iconic mute switch is still here on the iPhone 15 Plus. (Shaurya Tomer/HT Tech)

4/5 Lightning is officially dead! After years of resisting peer pressure, Apple has finally adopted USB Type-C, complying with the EU’s new regulations. But we’re not complaining. Apple has provided a nice, braided cable with the iPhone 15 Plus, although the charging speed is still limited to 20W. (Shaurya Tomer/HT Tech)

5/5 One of the main changes this year is the camera system. After a couple of generations featuring the same 12MP camera, Apple has finally brought the 48MP camera to the iPhone 15 Plus, and the difference is instantly noticeable, with well-detailed images. With the new Smart HDR 5, photos are now well-balanced with good exposure. Stay tuned for some amazing snapshots in our full review which comes out soon! (Shaurya Tomer/HT Tech)

Reducing Overheating Issues:

  • Limit usage of problematic apps until updates arrive.
  • Ensure you have the latest Instagram update.

How to Improve iPhone 15 Battery Life

Here are several effective strategies to extend your iPhone 15's battery life:

Check App Usage. Go to Settings and tap to battery option to identify energy-hungry apps and their background activity.

Utilize Low Power Mode. Accessible in Settings > Battery, it temporarily suspends background processes, ideal for conserving battery during initial setup.

Adjust Auto-Lock and Brightness. Set Auto-Lock to 30 seconds and lower screen brightness to save power. You can find these settings in Settings > Display & Brightness.

Manage Always-On Display. Turn off the always-on display feature to save battery life (Settings > Display & Brightness > Always On Display).

Monitor Temperatures. Keep your iPhone within Apple's recommended temperature range (32°F to 95°F) to prevent permanent battery damage.

Control Background App Refresh. Customize which apps can refresh in the background via Settings > General > Background App Refresh.

Location Services and Push/Fetch. Review and adjust location services settings (Settings > Privacy & Security > Location Services) and choose when email/internet accounts should push or fetch data (Settings > Mail > Accounts > Fetch New Data).

By following these tips you can address the battery draining and overheating issues and then wait for the software updates to arrive. These steps will help you enjoy longer-lasting performance from your iPhone 15.
