iPhone 14 Pro rumors have focused on the ultra-wide camera could be in for a major upgrade
To this point, the vast majority of rumors regarding the camera on the iPhone 14 Pro have concentrated on the main sensor, which is said to go from 12MP on the iPhone 13 Pro to 48MP this year. However, it appears that the ultra-wide lens could also be in for a significant boost. Ming-Chi Kuo is an analyst who has a great track record for Apple information. In a tweet spotted by Apple Insider(opens in new tab), he claims that the company is using larger 1.4m pixels in the ultra-wide camera on the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Apple Insider(opens in new tab) was the source that discovered this information. This is an increase from the present models, which have 1-micrometer pixels.
This new camera will feature pixels that are approximately 40% larger than they were before, which implies that it should perform significantly better in low light because larger pixels are able to collect more light than smaller ones. Even though we do not currently anticipate an increase in the number of megapixels for this sensor – with 12MP appearing to be the most likely option – it is possible that it will be in for a significant boost in other respects. When something like this gets out, we always take it with a grain of salt, but now that we’re only a week away from the announcement of the iPhone 14 range on September 7, leaks like this tend to have a high degree of accuracy because they’re so close to the actual event.
It has been rumored that both the primary and ultra-wide snappers on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max would undergo significant upgrades. In addition, it has been speculated that the devices will be capable of capturing video in 8K resolution. What about the telephoto lens, though? All indications point to the fact that this won’t be receiving any major updates anytime soon. This indicates that you should definitely expect a camera with 12 megapixels and a 3x optical zoom once again, despite the fact that these specifications are becoming increasingly out of date. Even a phone like a Pixel 6 Pro only gives 4x optical zoom, but the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and a handful of other Samsung phones offer 10x optical zoom. There are many other examples of Android phones that can zoom further than Apple’s, and the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is just one of them.
