Apple has officially announced the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max at last week’s Wonderlust event. Both of these smartphones went on pre-order on September 15th and will be available for sale starting this Friday. This year, the company has introduced a new Tetraprism zoom lens design with support for up to 5x optical zoom. It is a welcome improvement, but it is exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro Max. Now, a new leak has emerged suggesting that we may see the new zoom lens technology expand to the smaller iPhone Pro model next year.
iPhone 16 Pro to Get Tetraprism Zoom Lens for 5x Optical Zoom
Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known Apple analyst, has shared a new Medium post revealing that the Tetraprism zoom lens could expand to the iPhone 16 Pro. This means that both the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will come with the same zoom lens system as we have seen in the past.
Tetraprism is a new zoom lens design that Apple introduced during the iPhone 15 Pro launch keynote. It is designed to emulate the results of a 120mm lens on a full-frame camera. The company has added a foldable glass structure below the lens, which reflects the light four times. This allows the light to travel a larger distance within the limited space. Apple says this creates enough separation between the lens and the sensor to enable the longer focal length.
