Business Insider has some brand new details today from an Apple insider about the upgraded camera in the forthcoming iPhone 6s. According to a source in Apple’s ever-leaky supply chain, Apple has been ordering suppliers to produce five-element lenses for the next iPhone to work with 12-megapixel camera sensors.
Having a bigger sensor means that it will be able to take in more light, with the end result that the iPhone 6s will be able to take even higher quality pictures than the iPhone 6.
Apparently the lenses are already at the mass production stage and on schedule, and the same source also has news of the next iPhone after the iPhone 6s, which will most likely be the iPhone 7. According to the source, Apple is ordering six-element lenses for the iPhone after next, so we can expect yet another leap in photo quality with that upgrade.
As Business Insider notes, this ties in with John Gruber of Daring Fireball's assertion last November that the next iPhone would have “the biggest camera jump” for years.
