Filipinos can now get themselves on the wait list for Apple’s most-coveted smartphone yet — the iPhone 15.

Apple Premium Reseller Power Mac Center (PMC) has opened pre-orders for the highly anticipated iPhone 15 series which includes the following variants:

  • iPhone 15
  • iPhone 15 Plus
  • iPhone 15 Pro
  • iPhone 15 Pro Max

The iPhone 15 series was launched in the United States last September.

The latest of Apple’s smartphone features a new design with a durable, color-infused back glass and a new contoured edge.

The iPhone 15 lineup also introduces the next generation of portraits, making it easier for users to capture portraits with great detail and low-light performance.

The tech giant said the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus have two high-performance cores that use 20% less power and four high-efficiency cores.

The 6-core CPU in the latest smartphone is faster than the previous generation, making it capable of handling intensive tasks easily while delivering extraordinary battery life.

Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus’ 5-core GPU has 50 percent more memory bandwidth for smooth graphics when streaming videos and playing games.

For the units of iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, Apple said they are powered by A17 Pro, the industry’s first 3-nanometer chip.

A17 Pro brings improvements to the entire chip, including the biggest GPU redesign in Apple’s history.

The new CPU is up to 10% faster with microarchitectural and design improvements and the Neural Engine is up to two times faster, powering features like autocorrect and Personal Voice in iOS 17.

iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone Pro Max models can also create next-generation portraits that feature sharper detail, more vivid colors, and better low-light performance.

PMC said that Filipinos can get their hands on Apple’s latest smartphone through pre-order. They can do this in four ways:
