  • An upgraded ultrawide camera could deliver better photos, perhaps even closer to the main camera quality. But more importantly, a larger megapixel count could aid in printouts and macro mode.
  • The ultrawide camera could produce 12MP pixel-binned shots (1.4µm pixel size) that are clearer in low-lit conditions than the output from their predecessors.
  • iPhone 16 Pro Max’s main camera: The Pro Max is rumoured to get a custom 48MP Sony IMX903 sensor. The predecessor had a Sony IMX-803. The new sensor is said to be bigger in size: 1/1.14-inch. It could also benefit from a 14-bit analogue-to-digital converter (ADC) and a digital gain control (DGC).

  • Since there is no mention of the iPhone 16 Pro’s main camera, that could be the same 48MP shooter on the iPhone 15 Pro (IMX-803).
