Rumored iPhone 15 Ultra periscope zoom camera tipped for iPhone 16 Pro


The iPhone 15 Pro Max — possibly launching as the rumored iPhone 15 Ultra — has been rumored to get a new periscope lens camera for some time now. This would increase the optical zoom capabilities of the iPhone’s camera, putting it closer in line with the 10x optical zoom seen on the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.

But now it seems this upgrade could already be slated for the iPhone 16 Pro lineup as well, and it won’t be limited only to the Ultra model. According to The Elec (opens in new tab) (as translated from Korean) the periscope lens — which The Elec refers to as a “Folded Zoom” —  is slated to be produced for the iPhone 15 Ultra only this year, with plans to make it available on both the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Ultra in 2024.
