Apple is working on to release an iPhone in 2019 that has got three rear cameras, as per a new report from Bloomberg. The firm’s current top-of-the-line iPhones, the XS and XS Max, have got two cameras on the back, one being a portrait lens. But Android phone makers including LG and Huawei have already released triple-camera systems that ensure more creative flexibility and ultra-wide-angle shots.
Apple is all set to join the league with the successor to the XS Max, with the newest camera capturing a wider field of view, as per reports. The third rear camera will also “capture more pixels so Apple software could, for example, automatically repair a video or photo to fit in a subject that may have been accidentally cut off from the initial shot.” in addition, Apple’s Live Photos feature will be extended from three seconds to six seconds now.
All three 2018 iPhones are prepared to get updated models for this year i.e. 2019, and the report says their designs will remain mostly the same as last year’s devices, with the possible exception of how you plug them in.
The firm is said to be testing “versions” of the 2019 iPhone lineup that use USB-C ports instead of the company’s own Lightning connector. It’s not confirmed that Apple is definitively planning to make the switch, but the tests at least show they’re seriously considering it. Faster processors and an “updated Face ID sensor” are also in the plans.
Looking into 2020, Apple is reportedly working on a rear-facing, laser-powered “3D camera” that could “scan the environment to create three-dimensional reconstructions of the real world.” It is said that this camera can work up to distances of 15 feet, unlike the far more limited Face ID system on recent iPhones and the iPad Pro. It’s because Apple is apparently using laser technology for this new camera instead of the dot projector system that debuted with the iPhone X. Capturing such comprehensive 3D data could help advance Apple’s push into augmented reality, a feature that the company already greatly advertises with current iPhones.
