Apple iPhone 14 Pro to have 48MP camera, periscope scheduled for 2023

Yordan, 21 December 2021

Apple has been relying on 12MP sensors for the main cameras of its smartphones for the better part of a decade now. This is finally about to change in the iPhone 14 Pro series, as Cupertino is aiming to put a 48MP sensor behind the main shooter, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims.

Apple to introduce 48 MP camera in iPhone 14 Pro, periscope scheduled for 2023

The 48MP sensors still output 12MP images after pixel-binning, but allows more data to be gathered for computational photography. Kuo stated that Apple might add a “48MP” feature that takes pictures in 48-megapixel resolution for when total resolved detail is key.

The company will then move to introduce another widely used smartphone tech - the periscope lens. It will make its way to the iPhone 15 series, scheduled to arrive in 2023.

Sadly, the analyst does not have any more info on the matter. Right now, the telephoto camera of the iPhone 13 Pro Max caps out at 3x, but anything longer wouldn't fit in a modern slim smartphone without the use of folded optics.
