iPhone 16 Pro launch: Four camera features that could come to Apple's 2024 'Pro' model

Apple is likely to launch the iPhone 16 series smartphones in September but leaks and rumors are already circulating online. Following the design changes of last year's iPhone 15 Pro models, this year's edition is expected to focus heavily on camera upgrades. This essentially means that there will be many improvements to the photography and videography experiences for users. Here are four major upgrades that the iPhone 16 Pro could come to later this year:

iPhone 16 Pro may get upgraded main camera
The iPhone 16 Pro is rumored to feature an advanced main camera sensor from Sony, designed to enhance performance in low light. The sensor allows more light to be captured which ultimately produces a photo with less noise and better clarity. However, it is unclear whether this next-generation sensor will be exclusive to the iPhone 16 Pro Max or available in both Pro models.

iPhone 16 Pro may get an upgraded ultra-wide camera
The leak suggests a major camera improvement for the iPhone 16 Pro lineup, specifically the ultra-wide camera. The phone may come with a 48MP ultra-wide shooter – a significant upgrade from the existing 12MP version in the iPhone 15 Pro. This change is expected to bring better performance in a variety of shooting situations, especially low light, more detailed photos and greater editing and post-processing flexibility.

The iPhone 16 Pro camera is likely to get more optical zoom Smartphone cameras are becoming sophisticated. Apple is reportedly expanding the improved tetraprism camera design, currently only available in the iPhone 15 Pro Max, to the smaller iPhone 16 Pro. This advancement will allow both models to offer at least 5x optical zoom and 25x digital zoom.

Additionally, rumors suggest the possibility of the iPhone 16 Pro Max featuring a “periscope ultra-long telephoto combination” for greater optical zoom capabilities.

iPhone 16 Pro camera to address lens flare
A common problem faced by iPhone camera users is lens flare while shooting in bright lighting conditions, causing distorted photos. Apple is reportedly testing a new anti-reflective coating technology called “atomic layer deposition” (ALD) for the iPhone 16 Pro's camera lens to address this issue. If applied, this coating can reduce the effects of internal reflections.
