Have You Heard About the Megapixels?

Industry analyst Jeff Pu stated that the iPhone 15 models will see a huge upgrade. Both the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max currently have a 48 megapixel sensor. The 48 megapixel allows for crisp editing, and cropping. The standard iPhone 14 currently has a 12-megapixel sensor, and the standard iPhone 15 is predicted to have a 48-megapixel sensor.

Will There Be A Partnership Between Sony and Apple?

There have been rumors that Sony built a brand new sensor for Apple. Allegedly the new sensor, “roughly doubles the saturation signal in each pixel compared with conventional sensors.” This new sensor will allow the camera to have more accurate exposure settings. It will also be the largest sensor ever seen in an iPhone making cloudy days no longer difficult to shoot in.

What Lens Gives Optimal Zoom Features?

That would be the periscope lens, which may be the "major rear camera upgrade" revealed by Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. A periscope lens will allow for 5x or even 10x optical zoom, which exceeds those of a telephoto lens. The zoom will be clearer and more crisp than a digital zoom. It’s expected to only be featured on the larger sized iPhone 15 Ultra.

Should We Expect A Bigger Screen?

It is rumored that the iPhone 15 series may feature displays between 6.1-6.7 inches. The largest display being in the alleged iPhone Ultra. With a larger screen comes easier editing, and better visuals.
