Also today: a new rumour emphasizes that the camera of the iPhone 15 Pro will get a periscope lens. And it can zoom in up to five times.

iPhone 15 Pro: the ultimate camera?
According to analyst Jeff Pu, the iPhone 15 Pro will have a periscope lens that can zoom in up to five times. Apple is said to be negotiating with Lane Optics, the company that should supply the lenses. And the two sides must already make a decision in May. Fortunately, the talks seem to be going well, because Lane Optics has already received several test parts from Apple.
If you regularly use your iPhone’s camera to shoot photos or videos, the periscope lens is an improvement. With this lens, you can zoom in up to five times, while zooming with current iPhone cameras leaves something to be desired. In addition, the advantage of a periscope lens is that it has a compact design so that the iPhone can also remain more compact.
This isn’t the first post claiming that some iPhone 15 models will be getting a periscope lens. Apple analyst wrote last year that the 2023 iPhones will get such a lens. Therefore, 9to5Mac believes that the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s camera will also be updated, but the iPhone 15’s camera will not.
iPhone 14 Pro camera
You’ll have to wait a little longer for the periscope lens, but the camera of the iPhone 14 Pro also seems to be getting a massive update. Several rumours indicate that this device will be equipped with a 48-megapixel camera. This means that pixels are a lot smaller, making your photos more detailed. In addition, it allows you to shoot 8K videos, unlike current cameras. 4K is the limit here.
The iPhone 14 models will be launched this year. Usually, Apple presents the new iPhones in September first in the US, so you can expect the devices at the end of the year. And the same rule probably also applies to the iPhone 15 Pro in 2023. If you prefer to spend your money on a periscope lens, then your patience will be tested for a while.
