Apple is reportedly bringing periscope telephoto lens capabilities to the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Pro Max, but not the smaller 6.1-inch iPhone 15 Pro, according to a new report by The Elec.
This move would see Apple competing with other smartphone manufacturers who have already introduced periscope camera capabilities in their devices.
Industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo first suggested that Apple could make its new periscope camera capabilities exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro Max last year, with the potential for up to 10x optical zooming while minimizing image noise.
This feature would put the iPhone 15 Pro Max in line with other high-end smartphones, such as Samsung’s Galaxy S23 Ultra, which offers up to 10x optical zoom and 100x digital zoom.
However, The Elec’s latest report suggests that while the periscope telephoto lens may be exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro Max at launch, Apple could bring the capabilities to both the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max in 2024.

This would allow for wider availability of the periscope camera technology, and keep Apple at the forefront of smartphone camera innovation.
Overall, it seems that Apple is continuing to push the boundaries of smartphone camera technology with the introduction of a periscope camera lens on the iPhone 15 Pro Max. Whether or not this feature will be made available on other models in the future remains to be seen, but it’s clear that Apple is focusing on providing top-of-the-line camera capabilities for its Pro series of iPhones.
