Last year, apart from the new A16 Bionic chipset and Dynamic Island, one of the most talked about upgrades for the iPhone 14 Pro Max was its bigger 48MP camera. Cameras have undoubtedly become one of the crucial factors when buying a new phone for everyone. This year, Apple is planning to bring several notable camera upgrades to iPhone 15 Pro Max so that it can take on and even beat the competition from Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. Check out what the latest leaks say.

Bigger sensor

An early leak suggests that the iPhone 15 Pro Max will feature a larger sensor than its predecessor iPhone 14 Pro Max. The iPhone 15 Pro Max is said to feature a Sony IMX90 sensor with 1/1.14, which is almost an inch. It will be almost an 11 percent increase from the iPhone 14 Pro Max's 1/1.28 Sony IMX803 sensor. A bigger sensor means it will capture more light.
