iPhone 14 and iPhone 15 will receive significant camera updates, an Apple analyst has reportedly predicted. While the next year's iPhone is forecast to have a 48-megapixel camera as an upgrade to the existing 12-megapixel sensor, iPhone 15 which would come in 2023 is said to have a periscope-shaped lens. Apple may be able to deliver an improved camera performance through the enhancements it has planned. In case of iPhone 14 particularly, the Cupertino company is expected to provide better results by adding an upgraded camera.
9to5Mac reports that analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted the camera advancements of iPhone 14 and iPhone 15 in an investor note.
This is not the first time Kuo has talked about the iPhone 14 camera. In April, the analyst predicted the presence of a 48-megapixel camera. He also suggested that there could be 8K video recording support on the new model.
Apple currently offers a 12-megapixel camera setup on its iPhone 13 series that enables up to 4K video recording.
The additional megapixel count is expected to help provide better results, with additional detailing in photos and videos. Users may also get low light performance enhancements.
Analyst Jeff Pu recently corroborated the details shared by Kuo and predicted a 48-megapixel wide-angle camera on next year's iPhone. Pu, however, expected that the new camera would be limited to the iPhone 14 Pro models as the regular iPhone 14 variants may still go with the standard 12-megapixel ultra-wide and telephoto cameras.
Kuo also predicted that in the second half of 2023, iPhone 15 would come along with the periscope lens. The analyst made a similar prediction in March as well. The periscope lens was also initially expected to be a part of the iPhone 13 series and was later speculated to come in 2022.
