The coming iPhone 15 series may have Apple’s first mobile device ever to be fitted with a periscope telephoto lens. In fact, there have been a series of reports to this effect. The latest of them is coming from a recent MacRumors report. On Android phones, periscope telephoto lenses are already popular, but they have never been used on an iPhone. According to rumours, the iPhone 15 Pro Max will succeed this iconic Apple product. From the reports so far, the Pro Max model will be the only model in the series to use this sensor.
The periscope telephoto lens typically takes up a sizeable portion of the camera’s interior space. Apple’s desire to use this sensor on only the Pro Max model may mean that this device will come with a corresponding larger size.
In addition, this new periscope telephoto camera may give the iPhone 15 Pro Max a solid 6x optical zoom capacity. This will be a huge upgrade over the 3x optical zoom on the iPhone 14 Pro series. According to rumours, Apple may pick between Largan Precision and Genius Electronic Optical as suppliers. From the info of the iPhone 15 series that has been made public so far, Apple will be using a periscope long focus lens. It will also dump the lighting interface, and make a number of other “decisions that violate the ancestral precepts” on this generation of flagships.
Apple is actually becoming like an Android phone in some ways . We cant help but wonder when Apple will go to one-inch CMOS. The next iPhone 15 series will still have a lot of surprises in store for us.
Previous reports on the iPhone 15 periscope telephoto camera
The usage of a periscope telephoto lens in mobile phones is not new, but it is novel to Apple. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has since confirmed that the iPhone 15 Pro Max model would come with the periscope telephoto lens. In contrast to the 12MP, 3X telephoto lens now available with the iPhone 14 Pro, the iPhone 15 Pro Max can achieve 6x optical zoom. This is Apple’s first product with a periscope telephoto lens.
The periscope served as inspiration for the periscope telephoto lens. The light is refracted using two mirrors, which are used to reflect it twice before it is sent to the photosensitive component. The periscope telephoto in particular changes the way light moves by folding it through the mirror before it reaches the camera’s sensor. This technique allows the mobile phone to satisfy its demand for zoom while preventing the lens from protruding excessively because the sensor of the camera is not required to be at the same level as the lens. The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, Xiaomi Mi 12S Ultra, Vivo X90 Pro+, and other modern ultra-large Android flagships often come with this camera sensor.
For Apple, the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s standout feature will be the periscope telephoto. This is because the iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Plus, and iPhone 15 models won’t have this capability. Other vehicles in the series will still continue to have their distinctive selling qualities. A17 bionic chip, titanium middle frame, upgraded LiDAR scanner, and other innovations will also be included in the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

iPhone 15 Pro Max screen details – brightness will hit 2,500 nits
Apple will enhance the brightness of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra to 2500 nits. AppleInsider is the source of this most current rumour regarding the iPhone 15 Pro series. It is based on a tweet from a reputable source, ShrimpApplePro. Retweeting ShrimpApplePro’s initial tweet, “Connor” or “OreXda,” another leaker who offers important information on the Samsung display, has become commonplace.
“Connor’s” initial tweet reads, “Samsung’s next-gen panel hits 2500 nits”. The leaker also made mention of the M13. This would be two generations more modern than the M11 used in Samsung’s just-released Galaxy S23. The leaker, however, asserts that he is unsure if the screen is the Samsung M13.
iPhone 15 Pro to use a new display
ShrimpApplePro replied to the tweet by stating that it “may be equipped on the iPhone 15 Pro Max”. Clearly, the tweet is alluding to the new display. In contrast, the iPhone 14 Pro variants’ screens were 1000 nits brilliant. HDR content has a peak brightness of 2000 nits for indoor use and a peak brightness of 1600 nits for outdoor use.
Over time, Apple has made changes to its display. The company constantly strives to incorporate top-notch components in its iPhones. The M11 display is now used in the Samsung Galaxy S22 and S23 models. Therefore, the screen panel technology used by the Samsung Galaxy S23 series and the iPhone 15 Pro series is from two different generations. The two priciest iPhones this year will be more pricey. Prices will rise since Apple would have to pay more to purchase Samsung’s M13 panels. This is one of the factors contributing to the price increase for the iPhone 15 series. The info above was given credence by the media and is just being given for future use. It is worthy of note that all reports regarding the iPhone 15 series at the moment are not official.
From the rumours so far, the iPhone 15 Pro Max or iPhone 15 Ultra will come with huge upgrades. However, do you think a periscope telephoto camera will be a good addition? What about the display, do you expect Apple to raise the brightness to 2500 nits? Even if it does, will the increase be anything significant? All these are questions that need some personal opinions.
