Prepend to the content

  • Analyst Kuo adds that the Pro models will wait until 2024 to pick up the stacked design CMOS Image Sensor (CIS)
  • The base models of the iPhone 15 series are also expected to gain Dynamic Island and the Pro’s 48-megapixel primary camera
  • However, the use of this advanced camera system could also lead to potential delays in the iPhone 15’s launch

Industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo routinely drops new information on Apple’s upcoming hardware. This week, Kuo provides new information on the next-gen iPhone, claiming that the base iPhone 15 models will debut with a stacked rear camera system next month, while the Pro series will reportedly take until 2024 to adopt this new tech.

Diving into the specifics of the technology, the use of a stacked design CIS or CMOS Image Sensor would allow the camera system to take in more light, consequently improving image quality exponentially.

Past rumours have indicated that Apple will include a 48-megapixel rear camera system across the iPhone 15 lineup. This 48-megapixel f/1.8 sensor is currently exclusive to the Pro models.

However, reports have also talked about the iPhone 15 series potentially being delayed this year due to some production issues with the aforementioned stacked design CIS. If this rumour does pan out, the cheaper iPhone 15 models would be an attractive proposition when they reach shelves this year.

The new 48-megapixel stacked camera system would accompany Dynamic Island — another Pro-exclusive feature — on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus.

Apple iPhone 15 Pro series will also see hardware upgrades

The upcoming iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max models won’t be exempt from upgrades, either. Thinner bezels have been rumoured, while the larger iPhone 15 Pro Max is also likely to pick up a periscope telephoto lens to bolster its camera capabilities.

Apple will include this revamped camera tech on the smaller Pro model starting with the iPhone 16 series next year, per rumours. Lastly, the iPhone 15 Pro models are also expected to pick up a new Action button à la Apple Watch Ultra, but with more customisation options (up to nine rumoured).
