The news surrounding the iPhone 15 goes beyond the USB-C cable, titanium, and new pastel colors. Apple’s new smartphone, which went on sale last week in Brazil at prices ranging from R$7,299 to R$13,999, reveals a series of new hidden functions. There are new features for battery, cameras, and location services.

In Brazil, iPhone 15 sales have begun with models sold out and delivery scheduled for November. Moreover, the company updated its operating system last Wednesday to prevent mobile devices from overheating.
Check out some secret features:
It is possible to optimize charging that limits the use of the battery to 80% of its capacity with each charge, which is a way to increase its useful life. Go to “Settings” then “Battery”.
Then select “Battery Health & Charging” and then “Optimize Charging”. You can now choose between Optimum Charging and 80% Limit.
Now, your iPhone shows the number of times the battery has been fully discharged and recharged. Go to Settings, General, and About.
In the Battery section, you can see when your iPhone was manufactured, when it was first used, and how many times it was charged. In general, some experts say an iPhone can conserve up to 80% of its battery after 500 charging cycles.
All four iPhone 15 models feature a solution called Precision Search. Open the Search app, tap the People icon at the bottom and select who you want to meet. If you are not following this person, you need to share your location via SMS.
This feature is perfect for searching for someone at an event or at the beach. On your iPhone screen, an arrow will point in the direction of the person so you can find them more accurately. The solution is made possible by a large-scale slide that provides visual, tactile and audio guidance.
The new iPhone has up to seven “hidden” lenses. To access, open the camera and select the “Photo” option. In the Pro and Pro Max models, for example, there are initially several zoom options: 0.5X, 1X, 2X, 3X and 5X. But the tip is that if you click the 1X button, you can choose two other options: 1.2X or 1.5X. This allows for higher image quality and there is no need to zoom in with a finger movement. It is also possible to program the zoom level of images automatically. Just go to Settings, Camera, and Main Camera. This way, you can choose the total number of additional lenses you want to leave in the camera app and which zoom format will be the default.
By default, iPhone cameras capture images at 24 megapixels (MP). But if you’re low on storage space, go to Settings, Camera, Formats, and Photo Mode. In this case, you can select a 12-megapixel (MP) resolution, which takes up 2MB of space. The 24-megapixel image occupies 3 MB of internal memory.
Between the 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max models, it’s possible to take 48-megapixel photos that take up little memory. To do this, go to Settings, Camera, and Formats. Then enable the “ProRAW and Resolution Control” option. Then there will be two options.
In the “High Efficiency” tab, the 48MP image occupies 5MB of internal memory, as it is made in the “HEIF” format.
If the “Most Compatible” option is on, the same 48MP image takes up 10MB of space, since it’s made in the “JPEG” format.
The other two formats, “ProRaw,” are recommended for people who want to take photos without using AI or editing when taking photos. Today, mobile phones use processors to increase the lighting in photos, for example.
Using the USB-C input, the iPhone 15 itself can serve as a “battery” for other mobile phones and headphones. It is also possible to mirror your iPhone screen to TVs and computers using a USB-C cable.
