iPhone 6s to Feature 12MP Camera With Five-Element Lens, Bigger Sensor?

Posted August 23, 2015 at 7:58pm by iClarified
Apple is equipping the upcoming iPhone 6s with a 12MP camera that features a five-element lens and a bigger sensor that can take in more light, according to Business Insider sources.

Apple is currently ordering suppliers to produce five-element lenses for the iPhone 6S that are designed to work with 12-megapixel camera sensors, a person within Apple's supply chain told Business Insider. These components are said to be in the mass-production stage and are on schedule, this source said.

The iPhone 6 also features a five-element lens; however, the one in the iPhone 6s is made of a 'higher specification' so that it will match the new 12MP sensor.


Notably, Apple is said to be ordering six-element lenses for a future iPhone, likely the iPhone 7. The six-element lens will allow the camera to perform even better in low light situations.

Apple is expected to unveil its next generation smartphone at a media event on September 9th. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates.

Apple should release wireless charger for iPhone 6S

Wireless charging is the same thing as plugging in the phone. It's no advantage when it either uses a wire anyway or if you can't be at a certain distance from the charger while using the phone. What advantage is it to begin with?

No cable to plug in, but it's still being near an outlet.

I have upgraded my iPhone every time since the original iPhone but I will not be doing so this time as the upgrades are becoming less and less attractive. especially the S upgrades which except for the 5S, have been more or less pointless. on every generation of the iPhone, apple is on about how amazing the new camera is and how it will take great pictures etc. etc... but I really can't see much difference. sure there is a big difference between the 4S and the 6 but almost none between the 5S and 6. apple will keep telling us different though. frankly I'm done with apple's stupid upgrades. I wanna see something really attractive. who needs force touch on an iPhone?? it's just like samsung, packing the phone with pointless features no one is going to use.

Will people spend more money on a iPhone 6S if the iPhone 6 is maybe $100 cheaper Some people will not see the camera or the force touch as worth that extra $100ish Apple stopped this from happening with the 5S by getting rid of the 5 and releasing the 5C to which the plastic would cause some to pay more for the 5S. More money for apple Don't know what they will do this time to make people buy the 6S. They could get rid of the 6 and keep the 5C as their cheaper model which would persuade more people to the 6S 'This phone is already two years old' , then 'this ones new' Apple know they need to find a way to stop people buying the 6 over the 6S

There were rumors that the 6c will be released beginning next year.

Exactly Apple has just the iPhone's as there biggest sales and that's what keeps them going without the iPhone Apple would be lost, I have done all the iPhone's except the 6 6 still holding my 5s I won't touch the 6 6 I can't see people upgrading every year either ...... That's a $1,000 phone with a new contract !

Will it stick out more

Did you read the article? No it won't. iPhone 6 and 6 already uses 5 layer lens. So it will be the same.

I think it will stick out silightly less as the phone will be thicker but then the force touch module will take that space ,so

Think about how much are the force touch is using. The bezel is still the same like before, so the lens could be a bit more flushed but not completely.
