The iPhone 15 Pro was missing something major from its Pro Max counterpart. It sounds like the iPhone 16 Pro won’t have the same problem.

According to a new report from reliable Apple tipster Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 16 Pro might get two fairly major camera upgrades when it launches this fall that could make the iPhone 15 Pro’s camera look worse by comparison. First up is a tetraprism lens, which the iPhone 15 Pro Max used to produce excellent optical zoom photos that the iPhone 15 Pro couldn’t match. The second is a 48MP ultra-wide lens, a big boost from the 12MP ultra-wide lens on the iPhone 15 Pro.

Kuo’s reporting on the tetraprism lens matches previous reporting from the likes of MacRumors. The iPhone 15 Pro couldn’t have a tetraprism lens due to size constraints, so Apple is reportedly bumping up the display size on the iPhone 16 Pro from 6.1-inches to 6.3-inches. The bigger size should allow for better camera tech inside the iPhone 16 Pro, but as always, we’ll have to wait until the fall to find out.

As for the new 48MP ultra-wide lens, Kuo noted that the camera will still shoot photos in a 12MP format. However, photos taken with that lens should look better than they did on the iPhone 15 Pro.

Only eight more months until we find out whether all of this is real.
