Apple is likely to bring tetraprism camera technology to both iPhone 16 Pro models next year, which will enable at least 5x optical zoom and 25x digital zoom on the Telephoto lens.

To assure manufacturing yields for the higher number of units necessary, Apple will add LG Innotek as another supplier of the folded zoom module utilized in the technology, reports MacRumors.

The news was first reported by The Elec.

The iPhone 15 Pro has a 12-megapixel Telephoto camera with 3x zoom, while the iPhone 15 Pro Max has an enhanced Telephoto system with 5x zoom.

The iPhone 15 Pro Max incorporates a folded glass structure beneath the lens, which Apple refers to as tetraprism technology. It reflects light four times over, allowing for a longer focal length of 120mm, the report mentioned.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has repeatedly stated that he expects the tetraprism lens with up to 5x optical zoom to be included in both the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max next year.
