Numerals reported that Apple wants to improve the camera set-up of its next devices – and the way it wants to do this is by increasing the zooming capabilities of its phones.
Instead of creating this functionality on its own, Apple appears to want to partner with South Korean companies to make it real. And, although nothing has been finalized, Apple may use a Samsung Periscope lens.
Before we go ahead, it is important to note that even though the deal goes ahead, the iPhone 13. will not show any signal. But, in my mind, there is little doubt about the optical zoom lens for the Apple device.
Apple takes a more measured approach to manufacturing its products than many of its rivals. Instead of packing new iPhones with the latest technology, the company prefers to let the hardware in question mature before putting them into their devices.
The reason for this is twofold. The first ensures that Apple only includes tried and tested technologies, making it more reliable the devices. Secondly, it allows Apple to create a long-term roadmap, which disseminates new features to upcoming devices. It helps each new iPhone place sales points above its predecessors but is rarely so comprehensive as to prevent people from upgrading again year after year.
