The iPhone 16 Pro is once again rumored to include a Tetraprism Telephoto lens with 5X optical zoom
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo confirmed today that both the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will include Apple’s quad-prism telephoto lens with enhanced zoom capabilities.
Apple has introduced a new quad-lens system for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, enabling 5x optical zoom for the first time. The camera technology has not been added to the iPhone 15 Pro, marking one of the first times that Apple has added camera technology to one Pro device but not the other.
The limitation was rumored to be due to space constraints, with only the Pro Max able to accommodate the hardware, but yield may have been a factor as well. According to Kuo, when lens supplier Largan was producing quad-prism hardware for the iPhone 15 Pro Max in Q3 2023, the production yield was only 40 percent. The yield has now improved to 70 percent or more.
Apple plans to increase the size of the iPhone 16 Pro to 6.3 inches, up from 6.1 inches, which will allow more room for the camera hardware. With increased size and improved productivity, Apple has addressed factors that would likely keep the quad prism lens limited to the larger Pro Max iPhone.
It’s not yet clear whether Apple has plans to make improvements to the quad-prism lens in 2024. One rumor suggested that Apple is working on a “super telephoto camera” with a much longer focal length, but we haven’t heard much about it yet. a point.
