Apple Tests Coating to Reduce Lens Flare on iPhone 16

Apple is purportedly testing a new coating that could reduce lens flare and ghosting on the iPhone 16, according to yeux1122.

This is a source from related industries.

Apple is reportedly testing camera lenses with a new coating technology for application in the next iPhone Pro model.
*Introduction of additional new equipment for ALD atomic layer deposition (ALD)

This is expected to improve photo shooting quality, including reducing lens flare.

Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) is a thin-film deposition technique that allows for the precise application of materials at the atomic scale. Think of it like spray painting, but on a super precise level where you can control exactly how much paint goes on, down to the single atom layer.

ALD can be used to create highly effective anti-reflective coatings. These coatings reduce the reflections from the surface of the lens elements, minimizing the stray light that can cause flare and ghosting.

Beneq notes that "ALD provides a straightforward method for depositing antireflective coatings with high conformality on complex shapes. Because the ALD process deposits the same amount of material on all surfaces with 100% cover, it is practically tailor-made for fabricating AR coatings for mobile phone lens applications."

Apple typically introduces multiple camera enhancements with each generation of iPhone. This year, the company is expected to bring the tetraprism camera from the Pro Max to the iPhone 16 Pro model, leaving it exclusive to Pro models.
