Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max Models Debut with NavIC Support, Empowering Indian Satellite Navigation


Apple’s recent launch of the iPhone 15 series brought a significant development for Indian users – the inclusion of NavIC (Navigation with Indian Constellation) support in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. NavIC is India’s indigenous satellite navigation system, and its integration marks a crucial step towards self-reliance in navigation technology.


Apple’s Commitment to NavIC

Last year, reports emerged that the Indian government was urging smartphone manufacturers to adopt NavIC and move away from foreign GPS systems. It was clear that making this shift would require hardware modifications, potentially impacting the cost of smartphones. Apple has now embraced this initiative by introducing NavIC support in its latest Pro models, making them the first iPhones to feature this technology.


iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max Upgrades

The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max come with several noteworthy upgrades. They feature Grade 5 titanium bodies, enhancing durability while reducing weight. The Super Retina XDR displays, measuring 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches, respectively, boast incredibly thin borders. Apple has also introduced a ceramic shield for added screen protection.


One notable change is the inclusion of a USB Type-C charging port, a departure from Apple’s previous use of Lightning ports. The phones have smoother, rounded edges to improve grip, and a dynamic island notch replaces the traditional mute button with expanded functionality.


Performance and Pricing

Under the hood, both models are powered by the new A17 Pro processor, promising substantial improvements in camera performance and overall functionality. Apple offers four storage options: 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and a massive 1TB. Users can choose from four distinct color options: black titanium, white titanium, blue titanium, and natural titanium.


However, it’s worth noting that the iPhone 15 Pro models come with a price increase compared to their predecessors in the Indian market. The price breakdown is as follows:


128GB: Rs 1,34,900


256GB: Rs 1,44,900


512GB: Rs 1,64,900


1TB: Rs 1,84,900


Apple’s decision to incorporate NavIC support in its devices underscores its commitment to aligning with India’s navigation technology goals. It is an essential step forward in achieving self-sufficiency in this critical area.
