iPhone 16 Pro Camera: Four Improvements Coming This Year

iPhone 16 Pro camera

If all goes according to schedule, Apple will launch the new iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro in September. Several rumors suggest significant improvements to the Pro models’ cameras this year. It will certainly be one of the strong points of the Pro iPhones. Here are the four most important improvements:

The iPhone 15 Pro Max launched with a 5X optical zoom, reaching a 25X digital zoom. However, the iPhone 15 Pro didn’t feature that technology. Now, rumors suggest that both the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will include this improved zoom that, until now, only users of the Max model were able to enjoy.

Both the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max feature a 12MP Ultra Wide camera. Now, the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are rumored to pack a 48MP sensor, so it’s a substantial improvement over last year’s model.

Recent rumors suggest Apple will include a new atomic layer deposition (ALD) to prevent lens flare. Most cameras (including the iPhone one) suffer from this issue that causes green or purple dots on the image, or halos of light that shouldn’t be there. This new technology should help reduce that, although probably not completely solving it. It’s great news for photography fans, so we hope the rumor ends up being true.

Lastly, we expect Apple to ship the iPhone 16 Pro with a new, much more optimal Sony sensor. This sensor would allow to capture up to twice as much light when taking a photo, which would improve its quality. This information comes from Ming-Chi Kuo, one of the most reputable analysts in the world, so it’s quite reliable.
