Apple has always had its time to upgrade its sensors and hardware. The company seems to have a different timeline from Android manufacturers. While Android manufacturers are already dealing with Penta and Quad rear cameras, Apple only recently upgraded to a triple camera setup with the iPhone 11 Pro last year. The iPhone 11 Pro uses an ultra-wide angle, wide-angle, and telephoto camera. However, the sensor is still just 12MP. While Android flagships are now coming with 100MP camera sensors, will Apple upgrade? According to a recent report from Max Weinbach, Apple is developing an iPhone (iPhone 12 Max Pro) with a 64MP camera. The major feature of this sensor is to improve the zoom capabilities.

iPhone 12 Pro Max may upgrade its camera and battery
However, unlike the periscope lenses of Huawei P30 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, Apple, like Google, still rely heavily on “digital cropping”. This is because the periscope structure conflicts with the current Face ID face recognition component. The internal space does not permit the combination of both features.
In terms of photography, the report claims that Apple’s ultra-wide-angle lens aperture will increase by 35% to f / 1.6. At the same time, the telephoto end also supports night scene mode, adding a macro shooting mode and improving smart HDR.
The iPhone 12 Pro will, of course, support the 5G network. It is said that Max’s battery capacity has increased from 3969 mAh last year to 4400mAh.
According to O’Curtis, the iPhone 12 Pro/Pro Max may have 6GB of RAM. This is higher than the 4GB RAM of the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. They also expect both models to have a rear 3D sensing capability and millimeter-wave support for better 5G performance. According to the report, the basic model of the iPhone 12 will have 4GB of RAM. The iPhone 12 series may be launched in September as usual.
