With Apple finally announcing a date for WWDC 2023, the hype has been building around the reveal of iOS 17. Although it will be revealed on June 5, iOS 17 will arrive on devices with the launch of the Apple iPhone 15 series which is expected to launch in September. Previous leaks have revealed several details about the iPhone 15 camera, design, build, processor and more. Now, another leak has finally revealed details about the new periscope camera which the iPhone 15 Pro Max will likely feature.
Analyst Ming Chi Kuo revealed in February that the iPhone 15 Pro Max was likely to feature the periscope camera. Now, Kuo has revealed in a tweet that Apple has chosen parts manufacturer Largan to make the periscope lens for the iPhone 15 Pro. Kuo also revealed that Largan is not likely to profit from manufacturing the periscope lens as Apple is reportedly going to pay Largan just $4 per telephoto lens, which is below the market rate of $4.50 - $5.
