Apparently, and according to a report from the Taiwanese website Business Weekly states that Apple has been developing the dual lens technology for the camera for three years or more . But due to some problems that have arisen during development, it has delayed their use, although it is likely that it could be feasible for the future iPhone 7. The information has been revealed to the website by CEO Xiaru Wen of the company Altek, who has worked for HTC and Huawei on the dual-lens technology for the camera in the past.
As we told you at the beginning, Apple has been developing this technology for a long time, but several problems have arisen that have led to delays and Cupertino’s had to ask for help from another company.
According to Altek’s CEO, the problems are caused by poor supply chain performance, which has forced Apple to slow down the technology. But it seems there are other, more unfounded problems, and that is that Cupertino’s has been facing problems with blurred images, due to the use of two different lenses. To find a solution is why Apple acquired the Israeli company LinX in April of this year , for almost 20 million dollars.
Despite these rumors and all the problems that have arisen, which can now be solved with the help of third party companies, Apple’s plans for a double camera on the iPhone are for the near future, although not for this year 2015. With this we can forget that the double lens camera comes equipped in the rumored iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, and can be incorporated into the iPhone 7 next year 2016.
It is not the first time that Apple is working on improving the quality of the camera of its future iPhone, the camera is always one of the sections that try to improve with each new model and we all know that is one of the great attractions of the smartphones of the apple, but this time wants to go much further. Many users emphasize the quality of the camera, and have even created photo galleries with professional photographers from different parts of the world to show the quality that can be achieved with the iPhone 6 camera.
There’s no doubt that Apple smartphones stand out for many things, they’re attractive because of their great finish and features, but the camera is always one of the highlights and Cupertino’s want to go beyond just improving the lens a bit and adding a few more megapixels of resolution. The double camera would offer a new approach, never better and we’ll see if it becomes feasible in the future iPhone 7, as we’ve known thanks to iPhoneHacks.
