While the Apple iPhone 14 series is still months away from its release, rumors of the iPhone 15 lineup have already surfaced. Apple tests prototypes and parts of 5x telephoto lenses for the iPhone 15 Pro. A final decision on who will be the manufacturer is expected in May 2022.
The information about the iPhone 15 Pro came from analyst Jeff Pu, according to a report by 9to5Mac. Apple has not yet released any information about the upcoming iPhone 14 series, which is expected to be the successor to the company’s iPhone 13 series later this year.
When the components are approved, they will be included in the “high-end models of the 2023 iPhone lineup”, which should mean the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. The likely maker of the lens will be Lante Optics, and 100 million units are expected to be made specifically for Apple.
Periscope lenses are not new and are already available on a handful of Android smartphones. They allow horizontal positioning of the optical assembly of longer telephoto cameras and thus fit into modern slim phones.
While Android phones have been using the technology for several years, Apple traditionally tries to perfect a feature before implementing it.
