Apple launched the iPhone 15 series a few days ago. The ‘Pro’ and ‘Pro Max’ variants of this series come with significant upgrades over their predecessors. They offer interesting features like a titanium chassis, a solid state action button, new A17 Pro Bionic processor based on a 3 nm processor. At the ‘Wanderlust’ event on September 12, Apple also revealed the gaming capabilities of the iPhone 15 Pro. The company claims that it will be able to run all the most demanding games on PC and gaming consoles.
The popularity of gaming PCs/consoles has increased over the years. While the same can be said for mobile gaming, Smartphone versions of some PC games are also being released these days. This is because console and computer games are generally not playable on mobile. Incidentally, PC/console games usually refer to big-budget popular games.
Apple’s A17 Pro Bionic processor (3 nm) used in the iPhone 15 Pro series is almost similar to gaming consoles. The CPU has a six-core architecture and a 20 percent faster GPU, offering improved overall performance and reduced power consumption. Apple has also introduced hardware-accelerated ray tracing in the chipset, which is claimed to run any game at a higher frame rate than software-based ray tracing. The technology provides a realistic and immersive viewing experience in games. According to Apple, the A17 Pro offers “next-level mobile gaming with fast, efficient performance and hardware-accelerated ray tracing.”
Apple has announced that the console game will come to the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max. This is especially great news for mobile gamers, as smartphones will also support third-party controllers. God of War, WWE 2K and FIFA games will be available on iPhone 15 Pro models later this year. Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which will be launched on October 5 for PC and consoles, will come to smartphones early next year. Whether users will be ready to play such big title games on iPhone 15 Pro for free or have to pay the full price, remains to be seen.
