iPhone 15 to Enlist Sony to Eliminate Phone Cameras Greatest Flaw
Almost a year after the iPhone 14 was introduced, it looks like Apple will be enlisting Sony to help it eliminate one of the biggest flaws of the camera on its phones: underexposure. Next year’s iPhone 15 will likely feature a new Sony camera sensor, according to sources. It is expected to double the amount of light that the camera can capture, without having to add new components.
Sony’s new image sensor is believed to improve photos taken with strong backlighting, as well as windows and sunlight. It is also able to capture twice as much light per pixel as conventional sensors, which could help to eliminate overexposure. The sensor’s new semiconductor architecture is said to allow for more photodiodes, which allows more surface area to be used for capturing light. This would help to improve the camera’s performance and battery life.
Aside from the camera sensor, Apple is also expected to update the zoom technology in the iPhone 15 and Pro models. It is rumored that these models will come with a new periscope lens, which could allow for a wider and higher optical zoom than the previous model. This could be a game changer for videography and photography. However, analysts haven’t yet confirmed whether the new lens will be exclusive to the Pro model or if it will be included in the standard model.
In addition to the periscope lens, iPhone 15 and Pro models are also expected to feature a new USB-C port, which is expected to support faster speeds. Aside from the camera and USB-C changes, the family is also expected to feature a new design with a glass finish and stainless steel frames.
Apple is also said to be introducing a new iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 software. Both of these will allow users to adjust the depth of field and bokeh of their photos. It is also said that iPhone 15 models will support MagSafe wireless charging. This is an extremely convenient charging solution that is also available in some European countries. However, analysts have complained that Apple is unable to create its own modems, which is why it is using the Qualcomm modem.
The Apple iPhone 15 family is expected to come in four models. The cheapest model is expected to be the iPhone 15 and the most expensive will be the iPhone 15 Ultra. The Ultra will feature an additional rear camera, which is expected to be the first iPhone to feature such a camera. It is also expected to have a 5X or 10X optical zoom, which is believed to be the most powerful upgrade in the past few years.
It is also expected that the iPhone 15 and Pro models will use a new A17 Bionic chip, which is said to be manufactured using a 3nm process. This chip is also said to be able to support USB 3.2 and Thunderbolt connectivity. Unlike the A15 chip, which is used in the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, this chip will be more powerful. It is also expected to have more RAM.
