iPhone 16 Rumors: Apple To Unleash Super Periscope Camera In 2024

Most Apple enthusiasts are gearing up for the iPhone 15 that is expected to come out in a few months. However, this will not stop others from looking ahead, pondering on what further enhancements the Cupertino company may pull in 2024.

The iPhone 16 is the next Apple device that most are anticipating. Like the current family of iPhones, each variant is expected to sport new features ranging from power to built-in cameras.

Although Apple has fallen behind a bit as far as offering high-end cameras, they are slowly getting there even if it means jacking up the prices.

In the case of the iPhone 16, the iPhone 16 Pro Max which is projected to come out in September 2024 will allegedly have a unique feature according to a usually reliable leakster, Digital Chat Station.

According to the leakster, the iPhone 16 Pro Max will be fitted with a “Super Telephoto” periscope zoom camera, something that could see the next device come armed with a focal length of over 300 mm.

This would be quite an accomplishment considering the current iPhone 14 Pro Max is making do with a 77 mm, apparently a non-periscope and zoom snapper.

Of course, there could be some notable iterations happening when the iPhone 15 Pro Max comes out. A periscope on the iPhone is speculated to debut, providing a glimpse of things to come.

Understandably, the iPhone 16 Pro Max will pick up from where the iPhone 15 Pro Max will start, likely offering a more advanced system.

Super Telephoto cameras are often used in sports and wildlife photography, and they’re also interesting to use for portraits, provided that the photographer can be far enough away from the subject, GSM Arena pointed out.

It was also added that the iPhone 16 Pro Max will have a main camera that totes a 12% larger sensor compared to the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Further, the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to stick with its predecessor’s hardware.
