New iPhone 16 Pro leak suggests Apple are fixing a major camera lens problem

New iPhone 16 Pro leak suggests Apple are fixing a major camera lens problem

The quality of iPhone photos are about to get even better.

Several leaks of the iPhone 16 have been flooding internet forums since its announcements.

With the expected launch of Apple's newest smartphone model less than six months away, fans have been eager to analyse what's to come.

Back in February, there were leaks on the X platform suggesting that the tech giant was implementing some of its previous iPhone designs.

Now, tech leaker yeux1122, verified by MacRumors, has shared what looks to be some improvements to the iOS camera.

The tipster reported from a supply chain source that a new camera lens could be on the books.

The camera lens on the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max models are said to be designed using atomic layer deposition (ALD).

ALD essentially controls the thickness and composition of the coating, because it's applied one atomic layer at a time. This type of structure should help fine-tune the camera lens stack without increasing its bulk, according to the source.

What this means for the user is less flare and halos when the lens is directly exposed to sunlight as there will be an added layer of protection to the lens.

ALD should also reduce ghosting on fast-moving objects and reduce image distortions, leading to sharper, cleaner images.

While this may not be a flashy new feature for the tech-savvy fans out there, it is a small, functional improvement that many iPhone photographers can probably appreciate.

So, what about the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus? Well, rumour has it that these models are going to offer a vertically stacked dual-lens design, partly allowing users to film using the 3D spatial video format.

This type of video is compatible with the Apple Vision Pro, with some users expecting it to persuade more people to buy the immersive headset.

According to Apple tech leaker, ShrimpApplePro the schematics for the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus show two cameras stacked on top of each other - which further confirms the anticipated design.

The California-based company upped its game with the iPhone 15 Pro’s camera by adopting a 5x optical zoom on the 15 Pro Max and an improved 24MP main camera.

The new smart HDR 5 technology also enhanced skin tone balancing along with the ability to convert all photos into portraits was received positively.

So, it can only get better from here, right?
