The photographic section of the iPhone 15 camera has received many software improvements

As this is a functionality powered by the software, it will also be available on iPhone 14 Pro. Please note that iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus feature the same A16 Bionic chip present in the previous generation, with certain performance improvements.
On the other hand, iPhone 13, iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus users will also be able to enjoy other functions such as focus and depth control.
But there are other features of the iPhone 15 series camera that will continue to be exclusive to the latest generation of Apple smartphones, such as the ability to automatically take photos in Portrait mode or increase the resolution with 24 megapixel photos with greater light capture and balance of details.
