The telephoto camera lens on the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be expanded to both iPhone 16 Pro models.
While we wait for the imminent launch of the iPhone 15, the first rumors about the next generation of iPhone, the iPhone 16, are already beginning to sound. If we recently discovered that the iPhone 16 Pro models could incorporate a 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a new one has now been revealed very reliable information about their cameras.
The renowned and popular analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has received some rumors to take into account about the future generation of smartphones from the Cupertino firm and that they have compiled since MacRumors. Apparently, iPhone 15 Pro Max lens 5x optical zoom functionality will be available on both iPhone 16 Pro models.
Apple will expand optical zoom to more iPhone 16 models
The iPhone 15 Pro Max features a 12-megapixel telephoto lens capable of producing up to 25x digital zoom. This is a function of great interest that many consumers expected to also be implemented on the iPhone 15 Pro, which has a 3x optical zoom.
The implementation of this camera technology has been one of the biggest challenges that Apple has faced during the production phase of iPhone 15. Now that the company has overcome these problems, it is ready to expand 5x optical zoom to iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max.
In another vein, it has also been rumored that the iPhone 16 could include technology that allows it to increase the brightness of its OLED screen reducing your energy consumption. A novelty that we have been able to see this year with the new iPhone 15 models, which offer up to 2,000 nits maximum brightness.
Additionally, there is speculation that the iPhone 16 Pro may have a stacking CIS sensor manufactured by Sony. An image sensor that Sony is rumored to have been unable to supply in sufficient quantities to Applealthough finally the iPhone 15 line has not suffered any delay in its launch for this reason.
Finally, it is believed that the iPhone 16 Pro could have a screen that has slightly larger dimensions than the current generation. While the iPhone 15 Pro has a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display, it is said to The iPhone 16 Pro could implement a 6.3-inch front. This change, in theory, could also affect the overall size of the device. Which makes a lot of sense to make extra space for the necessary hardware components for the telephoto lens and its 5x optical zoom.
