A Sneak Peek into the Upgrades of iPhone 15

Apple’s iPhone 13 models have a decent camera, but some owners might be interested in upgrading for more advanced features. The iPhone 15 offers that opportunity, according to rumors.

The Pro Max model will get a periscope lens, enabling up to 5-6x optical zoom. It will also get Dynamic Islands instead of notches, according to dummy units seen in leaks.

Telephoto lens

The iPhone 15 is expected to feature a periscope lens that boosts the camera’s optical zoom. The new lens is reportedly capable of up to 6x optical zoom, a significant upgrade over the 3x optical zoom on the current iPhone 14 Pro model. However, in order to fit the longer lens into the phone’s slim chassis, Apple has reportedly had to rearrange the camera layout. According to leaker @Unknownz21, the enhanced telephoto camera will swap places with the ultrawide camera.

The upgraded telephoto lens will allow you to get close to your subject while still maintaining a clear image. Optical zoom is different from digital zoom, which crops the photo and reduces resolution. Using the telephoto lens on an iPhone will also allow you to take photos in Portrait mode that aren’t possible with the standard wide-angle camera.

The periscope camera will only be available on the iPhone 15 Pro Max, but it will make up for the lack of a telephoto zoom in the regular iPhone 15. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects the periscope lens to be capable of up to 5-6x optical zoom, which is significantly higher than the maximum 3x optical zoom found on the current iPhone 14 Pro models.

TrueDepth camera

If your iPhone or iPad Pro is showing an error message stating that Face ID has been disabled due to an unknown issue, you should try some troubleshooting steps. First, restart your device and try removing any cases. This might help solve the problem. You should also try putting the device into Airplane Mode for 30 seconds before turning it back on. This will reset the connection with Apple’s servers and may resolve the issue.

The TrueDepth camera is a security feature used to unlock your iPhone or authenticate purchases and sign in to apps. It works by projecting over 30,000 invisible dots in a known pattern onto the user’s face and analyzing them. It then compares the data to the registered profile to ensure that it’s the person using the device.

A recent rumor suggests that the new iPhone 15 will have a slightly bigger camera sensor than the previous generation. Apple is also reportedly implementing a programmable “Action Button” that can be used for different functions, like starting the camera or Siri. The iPhone 15 non-Pro models are also expected to have a haptic power and volume buttons, USB-C, and a more pronounced camera bump.

Night mode

Apple’s Night mode on the iPhone is a massive gamechanger for low-light photography. It uses intelligent software to capture several images of the same scene and then combine them into a single high-quality photo. However, it can cause issues when shooting in very dark environments. For example, it may overexpose light sources such as candles or streetlights. It also might bring up shadows that aren’t necessarily visually appealing.

Thankfully, iOS 15 lets you turn off Night mode in these situations. But the setting isn’t available by default and you have to manually enable it each time you open the Camera app. It iphone 15 would be nice if you could automatically toggle Night mode off when you want to take a low-light image.

In addition to the rumored features mentioned above, some other interesting iPhone 15 upgrades could include a faster USB-C port and new cameras. For example, the USB-C port on current models is only capable of 480 megabits per second (0.648Gbps), but the iPhone 15 Pro could feature a Thunderbolt 3 port that offers up to 40 gigabits per second (4.8Gbps). That would be a big boost in data transfer speeds. Additionally, the new cameras could offer a much sharper image quality with better autofocus and color accuracy.
