One of the biggest and most awaited new features by those who purchased the new ones iPhone 15 it’s certainly about design. Smartphones that Apple presented last September 12th have surprised with their new finishes which have definitively replaced stainless steel.
This choice by the Cupertino giant made the models Pro e Pro Max, the only ones to benefit from this improvement, significantly lighter. The data speaks of 9% more lightness, an aspect that to many might seem irrelevant.
Although this difference does not seem so huge, those who have already had luck and the opportunity to touch the new iPhones say the opposite. The lightness of the new Pro and Pro Max it would be much more remarkable than many believe.
iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max, that’s why they seem much lighter than stated
Some experts would have decided to get to the bottom of the matter: why the new iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max seem much lighter despite weighing only 18 e 19 grams in less?
We must start from the official data: the 15 Pro weighs 187 grams, 18 less than the 14 Pro. The 15 Pro Max however weighs 19 less when compared to its predecessor. The change in weight is therefore small, but never like this time could it be just a single figure.
According to experts, smartphones seem much less heavy than stated. Behind all this there are two fundamental reasons.
The first concerns an aspect purely linked toimpression: even if the user’s brain perceives a small reduction in weight, the decrease is significant enough to create a feeling of greater lightness when the smartphone is in one’s hands.
The other motivation concerns the so-called moment of inertia. This is a measure of an object’s resistance to changing its direction of rotation.
When something with a significant moment of inertia is used, it feels lighter. In this case therefore the perception of a superior lightness derives from massa of the telephone and from distribution of the latter with respect to the axis of rotation.
