iPhone 16 Pro: 2 Camera Rumors That Will Leave You Wishing You Had the iPhone 15 Pro

The iPhone 16 Pro is poised to address a significant shortcoming found in its predecessor, the iPhone 15 Pro. Reliable Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo reports that the iPhone 16 Pro is expected to receive two substantial camera upgrades that could overshadow the iPhone 15 Pro’s capabilities.

The first anticipated upgrade is the integration of a tetraprism lens, which was notably present in the iPhone 15 Pro Max, contributing to its superior optical zoom performance—a feature absent in the iPhone 15 Pro. The addition of the tetraprism lens to the iPhone 16 Pro aims to bridge this gap.

Furthermore, the iPhone 16 Pro is rumored to feature a 48MP ultra-wide lens, significantly surpassing the 12MP ultra-wide lens of the iPhone 15 Pro. This enhancement is likely to improve the overall photo quality, although the camera will continue to output photos in a 12MP format.

Apple’s strategy to accommodate these camera improvements involves increasing the display size of the iPhone 16 Pro from 6.1 inches to 6.3 inches. This change is expected to provide the necessary space for the advanced camera technology.

While these reports offer an exciting glimpse into the potential advancements of the iPhone 16 Pro, confirmation of these features awaits the official launch in the fall.
