Apple has apparently settled on the company that will manufacture and supply the periscope lens for its upcoming iPhone 15 series. It is being reported that the new component will initially be exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro Max, before being shared with both Pro models of next year's iPhone

The speculation about the Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max's periscope camera has been established in the rumor mill since last year. Only this time we have clearer knowledge of which lens supplier the Cupertino firm is picking.

Notable and prolific consultant Ming-Chi Kuo is now forecasting that Apple has allegedly narrowed its choice to Largan. It added that the Taiwanese optics brand will be an exclusive manufacturer of this lens for the fourth imaging module on the bigger iPhone 15 Pro variant. However, it is told Apple is planned to add Genius as a second optics supplier by 2024.

Periscope camera will be shared on the Apple iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max

Kuo's latest report gives weight to his earlier claim about Apple adding a periscope camera to Apple's iPhone lineup next year. In the past, he mentioned that the feature could be exclusive to the iPhone 16 Pro Max. However, now the source believes both iPhone 16 Pro variants are benefitting from the same sensor.

For years, Apple has not been able to match Samsung and other brands that first adopted the technology for smartphones. This type of camera bends the light that passes through the lens before it arrives at the sensor. The complex design also allows for extended lossless zoom capabilities in a thin camera housing, making it more ideal for smartphones.

Currently, it is unclear what periscope camera features the iPhone 15 Pro Max could offer. In contrast, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra (review) can capture up to 10x optical zoom, which is one of the highest levels found in flagship camera phones in the market.

In the meantime, we are curious to know whether this new feature will sway your decision to choose the iPhone 15 Pro Max over the smaller Pro model. We would love to hear your thoughts on the matter.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
