Apple is reportedly working together with its exclusive supplier Largan to improve the yield. Apple is also looking to pioneer specially moulded lenses to compensate for the smaller size of the smartphone. This would allow Apple to fit larger lenses without compromising the small form factor of the iPhone 16 Pro. (Unsplash)

2. Expanded Optical Zoom

The iPhone 16 lineup will extend the advanced tetaprism camera design, currently exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro Max, to the smaller iPhone 16 Pro. This expansion ensures that both models will offer a minimum of 5x optical zoom and 25x digital zoom capabilities. Additionally, speculation surrounds a potential "periscope ultra-long telephoto combination" feature for the iPhone 16 Pro Max, though confirmation remains elusive.

3. Anti-Reflective Coating

Addressing a common issue encountered by iPhone camera users – lens flare in bright lighting conditions – Apple is reportedly exploring an innovative solution for the iPhone 16 Pro. Rumours suggest the integration of an "atomic layer deposition" (ALD) lens coating technology to mitigate the impact of internal reflections, resulting in fewer artefacts in images, especially those captured in bright environments.

4. Upgraded Main Camera

The iPhone 16 Pro is expected to adopt a new Main camera sensor developed by Sony, featuring an enhanced design for improved performance in low-light scenarios. Sony's latest stacked sensor technology facilitates larger photo diodes, leading to twice the light capture compared to conventional sensors. While details remain unclear regarding its inclusion in both iPhone 16 Pro models, rumours hint at a potential exclusivity to the iPhone 16 Pro Max.
