How can iPhone 15 Pro run Resident Evil Village & RE4 Remake?
Unveiled at Apple's September 12 Wonderlust Event, the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max being able to run games like Resident Evil 4 Remake and Resident Evil 4 Remake is possible with the power of the new A17 Pro chip. As elaborated on the 15 Pro's announcement post, the A17 Pro chip makes the latest iPhone capable of utilising hardware-accelerated ray tracing for games - four times faster than the normally used software tracing.

Triple-A gaming in the palm of your hand isn't where the benefits of the A17 Pro chip for iPhone 15 Pro end either. The chip's included AV1 decoder will also enable higher quality and more efficient video streaming capabilities as well - with supported video output and transfer speeds up to 4K resolution and 60FPS HDR, thanks to the new USB controller.
What is the iPhone 15 Pro price and storage?
According to Apple, both the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone Pro Max models will start at the price of $999 and $1199 respectively - available in the colours black titanium, white titanium, blue titanium, and natural titanium finishes.
