Apple has announced its latest handheld console that is set to revolutionize mobile gaming – the iPhone 15 Pro. Packed with the powerful A17 Pro chipset, this device has the capability to run triple-A blockbusters like Resident Evil Village, Resident Evil 4, Death Stranding, and Assassin’s Creed Mirage. These games are slated for release later in 2023, so iPhone enthusiasts are encouraged to secure their pre-orders without delay.
One of the most notable features of the iPhone 15 Pro is the A17 Pro chipset, which Apple describes as the “biggest redesign in the history of Apple GPUs.” This chipset enables console-quality graphics on the iPhone, eliminating the need for cloud-based streaming to play games in this style. Additionally, the iPhone 15 Pro introduces hardware-accelerated ray tracing to smartphones for the first time ever. This technology enhances lighting and shadow effects, offering a superior gaming experience.
Another groundbreaking technology featured in the iPhone 15 Pro is MetalFX Upscaling. By harnessing the power of the GPU and the Neural Engine, this innovation produces high-resolution graphics while consuming less power. This means that users can enjoy blockbuster games for longer durations without draining the battery as quickly.
In addition to the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max, both Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Village will also be available on iPad and Mac devices in 2023. Cross-platform progression is supported across all Apple devices, allowing players to seamlessly switch between platforms and continue their progress. With stunning graphics and HDR support, these games offer an immersive experience that rivals the latest home consoles.
Capcom, the developer behind the Resident Evil series, explains that players have the flexibility to choose their preferred gameplay experience. The games support a variety of game controllers and multi-touch with on-screen controls, enabling customization. The App Store will release both games later this year, offering a free download that provides a taste of high-end gameplay. Players can then unlock the full game with a single in-app purchase.
The iPhone 15 Pro is set to redefine handheld gaming with its powerful capabilities and innovative technologies. With its seamless integration across Apple devices and stunning graphics, it is bound to capture the attention of avid gamers around the world.
