iPhone 15 Pro Max Camera Upgrade Delayed, Periscope Lens Remains Exclusive

So, Apple has recently been making headlines with rumors about its upcoming iPhone models. The latest rumor is about the camera setup on the iPhone 15 Pro Max. According to the latest reports, the device will retain the same primary sensor as the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which is a 48MP 1/1.28-inch sensor.

The Previous Rumor: A Larger Camera Upgrade

Earlier rumors suggested that Apple would use a larger and more advanced 48MP camera sensor from Sony called the IMX903 on the iPhone 15 Pro Max. This rumor was plausible since the iPhone 15 Pro renders showed a bigger camera bump at the back. Unfortunately, it seems that the physical change might be for cosmetic purposes only. Revegnus, a prominent leaker, challenged the previous prediction by stating in his latest tweet that the larger sensor will not be found in the upcoming flagship.

What’s new about iPhone 15 Pro Max’s camera?

According to the new rumors, the only noteworthy upgrade to the camera will be the periscope zoom lens. The new 48MP sensor will be featured in the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max next year. Cost constraints could be the reason why Apple refrains from using the new sensor on the iPhone 15 Pro Max. The device has already been reported to ship with a periscope zoom lens, which is said to remain exclusive to the bigger iPhone for this year and could likely force a price hike.

Apple’s Latest Camera Technology

It is important to note that Apple just upgraded to Sony’s 48MP 1/1.28-inch sensor last year with the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Since it took years for the tech giant to move to 12MP sensors on various iPhone models, we should not treat this rumor as a surprise. Furthermore, the 48MP sensor on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max has already been praised by various technology outlets. Therefore, at the most, Apple could introduce some software-related improvements to the same sensor in the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

What does this mean for iPhone 15 Pro Max users?

This move by Apple will allow the device to take better quality photos with the same camera, making it a win-win situation for both the company and its customers. The periscope zoom lens is said to support up to a 6x zoom, so when combined with the 48MP camera and the ultrawide unit, the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be a versatile solution that fits in your pocket.

Final Thoughts

It seems that the iPhone 15 Pro Max will not feature a significant camera upgrade, as previously thought. However, users can still expect to capture stunning photos with the device’s 48MP primary sensor, periscope zoom lens, and ultrawide unit. With the rumored features, the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be a device to look out for in 2023.
