SNAPPY’s happy iPhone lovers will likely be a bit disappointed if the latest upgrade rumor turns out to be true.
Before we set our eyes on the iPhone 14, there was talk about its successor and what might be in store there.
According to an expert, the iPhone 15 Pro can be slightly upgraded.
This model may have a periscope lens with 5x optical zoom.
While the periscope lens does things differently resulting in better optical zoom, many were hoping the tech giant could go a little further.
Samsung and Huawei already offer similar technology on their smartphones, allowing for up to 10x optical zoom.
And given that we’re talking about an iPhone release next year – not this year – Apple could find itself quite lagging behind its competitors at the time.
That said, Apple is known for keeping the crowds at bay and choosing to perfect new technologies first, so the proof will be in the pudding.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard rumors of a periscope lens with 5x optical zoom.
But it is too far to say whether that will become a reality when the iPhone 15 launches in late 2023.
Latest sign coming over 9to5Mac, who saw the report by analyst Jeff Pu.
Apple seems to have been in talks with experts Lante Optics soon.
The iPhone specialists at the company say they have received samples and will make a decision in May.
It is claimed that if an agreement is reached, the company will likely supply Apple with more than 100 million components.
But before all that, we still have iPhone 14″ to look forward to – and that in itself has its fair share of rumors.
The phone won’t be out until September but thanks to information revealed by Apple insiders, we largely know what it will look like.
Notably, the iPhone maker tends to get rid of the notch, where the front-facing camera and Face ID sensor is located, and instead has a punch-hole design pioneered by rivals Samsung and Huawei.
Apple is expected to stick with the design for its next iPhone line as it looks to get rid of the curved edges that have been used by its devices for years.
Reverse wireless charging, which allows users to provide emergency battery power to friends, is also said to be on board.
In other news, a new space station for Tom Cruise for filming caused the jaws to fall out for all the wrong reasons.
Scientists have pinpointed when they believe The sun will explode and wipe out everything on Earth in the process.
And Apple is work to fix for a recently discovered bug that could potentially expose iPhone users’ personal data.
