New Apple Leak Reveals Much-Needed Enhanced iPhone Feature

Apple’s iPhone 16 Pro Max is set to receive a massive upgrade that will put it far ahead of this year’s iPhone 15 Pro Max, according to a new report.

Post on Chinese social media platform Weibo, the well-known leakster known to the English-speaking world as “Digital Chat Station” details a vastly improved camera for Apple’s 2024 flagship smartphone that will give it three major advantages over the 2023 flagship model.

Expected upgrades include a much larger main camera sensor, improved lens optics and an all-new ‘super telephoto’ lens, which is expected to be significantly more powerful than the new periscope zoom lens ordered for the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Here are more detailed specifications for the new camera:

  • A new super telephoto periscope combination
  • Larger Type 1 / 1.14 primary camera sensor – much larger than the Type 1 / 1.28 sensor found in the iPhone 14 Pro
  • A new eight-element lens consisting of seven plastic elements and a new “expensive” molded glass element.

Long-range zoom on the iPhone’s camera is a much-needed upgrade, lagging behind the best Android flagships in this regard. While the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s purported periscope lens will go a long way to address this issue, expect the iPhone 16 Pro Max to go even further.

The term “super-telephoto” can be interpreted, but it is usually used to refer to higher magnifications than the 6x periscope zoom that the iPhone 15 Pro Max and iPhone 16 Pro are expected to reach. As a result of this there is speculation that the larger iPhone 16 Pro Max model will retain a significant advantage over the iPhone 15 Pro Max and the standard iPhone 16 Pro when it comes to long-range zoom.

Using a larger main camera sensor will greatly increase the amount of light the camera can capture in a single shot. This is one of the most important factors that determine overall image quality and should help the iPhone capture clearer shots, especially in low light.

Any likely improvements to the lens are more difficult to quantify, but additional features tend to provide reduced distortion and clearer images. Larger camera sensors also require correspondingly larger lenses, which may be another reason to switch to a new optical formula.

If this latest leak was true, we would be looking at an iPhone 16 Pro Max camera that surpasses other iPhones in more ways than previously expected. For now, customers will only have to look forward to Apple’s best camera with the iPhone 15 Pro Max, which is expected to launch this September.
