iPhone 15 rumor: From 2023 with 10x optical zoom?

While the alleged leaks about the iPhone 14 generation, which is expected in fall 2022, do not stop, the first myths about the successor are already spreading. According to a new iPhone 15 rumor, the periscope camera with 10x optical zoom will only be available in the 2023 model.

iPhone 15 rumor: Up to 10x optical zoom not until 2023

Bad news for Apple fans, because actually experts have predicted the introduction of a periscope camera including a high optical zoom factor already for the iPhone 14 generation. However, according to a report from MacRumors, analyst Jeff Pu assumes that the technology will not be introduced until the iPhone 15 and thus in 2023.

According to Pu, the current lens technology does not yet allow for high optical zoom levels. This would simply require more space, which would not yet be feasible with the current system of iPhones, it says.

In a periscope system, light entering the telephoto lens on the back of the iPhone would be reflected by an angled mirror toward the camera’s image sensor. The change in direction of the light would allow Apple to build a longer telephoto setup into the iPhone, allowing users to zoom in further without blurring the image.

Rumors of an iPhone model with a periscope lens have persisted since 2020. Initially, respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo mentioned such a system and assumed that it would be part of the iPhone 14 Pro.

Camera update on iPhone 14 Pro

Now, however, it seems more like Apple fans will have to be patient until the iPhone 15 Pro. Nevertheless, the iPhone 14 Pro is supposed to get a huge camera update. Kuo expects a 48-megapixel main sensor that can even record videos in 8K resolution.

These 8K videos should also be able to be displayed on Apple’s VR/AR headset, which is also expected for 2022. Thanks to pixel binning technology, the iPhone 14 Pro is also said to be able to downscale images to 12 megapixels, which should especially benefit images in low-light conditions, similar to what is already the case with the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.
