The biggest iPhone 15 Pro news from today's Apple event might be design-related, with the introduction of grade 5 titanium for the iPhone's casing. But the insides don't disappoint either. Most notably, Apple's finally given us a reason to pay extra for the Pro Max that isn't just about size and battery life.

The largest iPhone will have a longer optical zoom than the standard iPhone Pro 15. That means it should more readily stand up against the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra in the main area where it had been lacking. We'll need to test it but, it's very likely to earn a place in our pick of the best camera phones.
