- The periscope lens (offering better zoom) would appear on the iPhone 15 Pro Max
- The aperture of the photo sensor of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus would be measured at f/1.6
- The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus would also increase to forty-eight megapixels
The technical sheet of the photo sensors of the four iPhone 15s was revealed by our colleagues from MacRumors, without however having been confirmed by Apple. We learn in particular that the basic models move to forty-eight megapixels and that the lens periscope would indeed appear on the iPhone 15 Pro Max. This is the most powerful model this year, if the rumor is to be believed and of course excluding the supposed iPhone 15 Ultra.
The new iPhones should be revealed during the keynote organized by Apple on Tuesday, in less than a week. We should discover the complete technical characteristics of the four or five models, as well as those of the Apple Watch Series 9 and a potential new pair of AirPods. This could be the third generation of the classic edition (without silicone in-ear tips).
Beyond the increase from twelve to forty-eight megapixels, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus would also have an f/1.6 aperture to capture maximum light with their main lens. For comparison, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus display f/1.5 here according to their official technical sheet.
With this, MacRumors assures me from a reliable source that the ultra-wide-angle of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max would also be improved, going from twelve megapixels to more than thirteen megapixels.
What doesn’t change
Moreover, it seems that few changes are to be expected. The ultra-wide-angle sensor of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, for example, would remain limited to twelve megapixels with an f/2.4 aperture, again according to the informant. MacRumors. We don’t know precisely who it is, but the media generally relays fairly reliable rumors.
Finally, note that it is unsurprisingly the subcontractor Sony which would be responsible for designing the photo sensors for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. A supplier who is not unknown at the helm, since its EXMOR technology has already been equipping Apple mobiles for many years.
