While the 48MP sensors in the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max may be coming to the iPhone 15 and 15 plus, they may also cause delays. Indeed, according to an analyst, it is possible that the supply of these components may hinder their release.
The iPhone 15 is arguably the most anticipated product line of the year, and new iPhones have long since been released around the same time. But in 2023, the calendar may turn upside down a bit. In question: Difficulties in providing the main image sensor.
What if the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus are delayed?
In 2022, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max saw the arrival of a 48MP main image sensor. A sensor that, according to analyst Jeff Bowe, will also be making its way to the cheapest models this year.
But, on Monday, May 15th, the analyst was less optimistic in his newsletter Haitong International Stock Exchangethat 9to5Mac He can read. According to his information, Apple may encounter difficulties in supplying some camera components, during the expected time. It is more precisely the 48MP sensor of the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus. Jeff Pu does not want to be alarmist, adding that for the time being, there are no delays and that the two smartphones could be launched at the same time as the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max, in September 2023. Provided, however, that the delays do not worsen.
The picture should improve on the iPhone 15
The photo component of the next iPhones could be much better compared to the iPhone 14. For example, the still-obscure Ultra model could benefit from a pop-up telephoto lens: enough to zoom in up to x10 optically. But it’s not just the higher-end model that would improve zoom: all iPhone 15s could be equipped with periscope zoom, which should offer twice the zoom.
The iPhone 15s is said to have a new Sony sensor that handles HDR better and captures more light at night, which could fix one of the iPhone’s historical flaws.
