New iPhone 15 Pro Can Play Console Versions Of Games
Apple unveiled its latest version of the iPhone — iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max — on Tuesday, and with it came some major news for gamers.
According to the company, the new iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max will allow players to play full console versions of recent and upcoming games right on the device. The phone will natively support Resident Evil 4 Remake, Resident Evil Village, Death Stranding, and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Mirage. In addition, the phone will support raytracing.
As far as timing is concerned, the two Resident Evil titles and Death Stranding will be available for the iPhone 15 Pro later this year. Assassin’s Creed Mirage will launch in the first half of 2024.
“Bringing pro performance and capabilities, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are powered by A17 Pro, the industry’s first 3-nanometer chip,” Apple says.
“The new CPU is up to 10 percent faster with microarchitectural and design improvements, and the Neural Engine is now up to 2x faster, powering features like autocorrect and Personal Voice in iOS 17. The pro-class GPU is up to 20 percent faster and unlocks entirely new experiences, featuring a new 6-core design that increases peak performance and energy efficiency. Now with hardware-accelerated ray tracing — which is 4x faster than software-based ray tracing — iPhone 15 Pro offers smoother graphics, as well as more immersive AR applications and gaming experiences.” iPhone 15 Pro brings true-to-life gaming to the palm of users’ hands with console titles never before seen on a smartphone, like Resident Evil Village, Resident Evil 4, Death Stranding, and Assassin’s Creed Mirage.”
The Apple iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max launch on September 22. Preorders begin September 15 with the iPhone 15 Pro starting at $999 and the Pro Max starting at $1,199.
