One of the key selling points of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Max, as emphasized by Apple multiple times, is the body material change to titanium. This new material not only enhances strength and durability but also significantly reduces weight. Many reviewers who had the chance to try out the actual device have praised its lightweight design. But just how light is it?
According to the specs comparison with the iPhone 14 Pro, the weight of the iPhone 14 Pro is 206 grams, while the iPhone 15 Pro weighs 187 grams, a reduction of 9%. As for the larger model, the iPhone 14 Pro Max weighs 240 grams, whereas the iPhone 15 Pro Max weighs 221 grams, a decrease of 8%. This weight reduction of 19 grams can be compared to approximately three 5-baht coins (reference), giving users a tangible sense of its lighter feel.
However, despite the weight reduction, the thickness has actually increased. The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max measure 8.25 millimeters thick, compared to the 7.85 millimeters thickness of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.
TLDR: The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max offer a titanium body material for enhanced strength and durability while achieving a significant reduction in weight. With a weight decrease of 9% and 8% respectively, users can feel the difference, comparable to the weight of three 5-baht coins. However, this weight reduction is accompanied by a slight increase in thickness compared to their predecessors. Source: 9to5Mac.
