iPhone 14 Pro has a much larger 48MP main camera: Report

For many years the iPhone has been stuck with a 12MP camera, and while it still delivers high-quality photos, there hasn’t been a resolution upgrade for several generations. A new report says that is changing this year.

The iPhone 14 is said to be set to receive a camera with four times as many megapixels as the current version which is expected to be released in less than six months.

According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gorman, the iPhone 14 will get the pixel upgrade but the improved camera will only be available on the Pro model of the phone in order to entice buyers to upgrade to the more expensive model. Gurman has a particularly good track record when it comes to Apple rumors and leaks, including recently correctly predicting the Mac Studio as well as other products announced during Apple’s recent hardware event.

Not much is known about the camera, but a 48MP camera upgrade has been rumored for over a year, and if true, the Apple 2022 phone will be able to deliver more detailed photos.

As a result of the increased megapixel count, the iPhone 14 Pro’s camera pixels are claimed to be smaller, measuring 1.22 μm, a decrease of 0.68 μm compared to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

The device’s sensor width is reported to be 1/1.3 inch, which is an increase over the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max models which have a smaller 1/1.65 inch sensor. If the report is correct, this means that the iPhone 14 will have a sensor that is approximately 57% larger than the current model.

Hopefully, all this pixel-pushing will result in more detailed and high-resolution files for iPhone users. However, compressing smaller pixels can result in poor low-light performance which Apple may have to fix with software.

Other Features

According to Gorman, the other changes coming to the iPhone 14 aren’t quite as striking as the improved camera. The iPhone 14 is supposed to have a design similar to that of its predecessors, although the notch may change to a bead-shaped cutout for Face ID and a circular cutout for the camera.

Another selling point, Gurman says, is that the base model will be available with a 6.7-inch screen, which could become very popular given the popularity of the screen size on the iPhone 13, a feature that was only available in the Pro version. .
