iPhone 16 Pro

Apple’s next smartphones are still months away. However, the leaks and rumors are keeping us entertained. We have seen multiple reports suggesting the design language of the iPhone 16 series. Now there is a new leak that reveals that Apple may bring something fresh to the table for the Pro models. This will be in the shape of a new lens coating, which may not sound like much but if it is done correctly, it may improve the photo quality drastically. Let’s delve into the details of the rumored lens coating for the iPhone 16 Pro.

iPhone 16 Pro May Improve Photo Quality With New Lens Coating

The new leak comes from the user Yeux1122 on the Naver platform. According to the user, Apple is going to use the Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) technology on the iPhone 16 Pro models. This technology will create an ultra-thin film on the lenses. The resulting layer will have a thickness of a few nanometers and can be precisely applied. It is much more even and has a uniform deposition.

How can Apple’s new coating improve camera quality on the iPhone 16 Pro models?

With a thin and uniform coating, Apple will be targeting to achieve a lesser lens flare and ghosting. Lens flares are the unwanted reflections between the layers of glass within your lens. Whereas in ghosting, an image’s bright elements can appear duplicated. These two issues are a big problem in the camera department. But with the advanced coating, Apple will be able to reduce it. The ALD technology is also used by car manufacturers on EVs so that there is less lens fare for accurate lane control.

That said, the ALD technology is kept exclusive to the Pro models, according to the leaker. Hopefully, if Apple is successful with the new coating, we can expect even the Android manufacturers to try it on their smartphones. Last year Apple brought titanium on their smartphones, inspiring other companies to do so.
