If you are like most of us, you anxiously await for Apple to release their annual update to the ever popular iPhone. This year, the rumors that I’ve been hearing are that the new release will be called the “6s”.

One of the biggest improvements that I’ve seen on the iPhone as it has evolved is in the camera that is equipped with the popular mobile device. If you have owned one of the older version such as the iPhone 4 and you now own one of the newer versions such as the iPhone 6 or 6 plus, you’ve undoubtedly noticed that there has been a huge improvement in the quality of pictures that you can take with the new version of the phone. This is due to the fact that Apple has improved the actual lens and flash technology that the phone is equipped with. They’ve also made improvements to the software that manages the process of taking pictures which has helped improve the quality of the images. Most people would have a hard time telling the difference between a photo taken with the iPhone and a photo taken with a DSLR camera.

Apple usually does a pretty good job of keeping the actual specifications of their new models a secret until the release date but somehow there always seems to be those people who have an insider who tips them off to some of the features that might be included in the newest version.

You may know that the current camera that is built into the iPhone 6 takes photographs at 8-megapixels. I’ve heard three rumors about what we might be able to expect from the iPhone 6s camera and they are listed below:

  1. The first rumor I’ve heard is that Apple will be sticking with the 8-megapixel camera in the 2015 version of their iPhone.
  2. The second rumor I’ve heard is that Apple MAY equip the 6s version with a 16-megapixel camera. However, most of the articles that I’ve read suggest that this probably won’t be the case.
  3. The biggest rumor that I’ve heard and the one that I’m hoping is actually true is that Apple will be equipping the latest release of the iPhone with a dual lens camera. If the rumor is true, the buzz on the street is that this new technology will allow the camera to take images that are near or extremely close to DSLR quality!

I Guess We’ll Just Have To Wait and See

I for one hate waiting for the latest gadgets to be released. If the rumor about a dual camera lens feature is true, the newest version of the iPhone may very well be the biggest leap forward in their camera technology to date. I’m anxiously looking forward to seeing what Apple actually does and whether or not they stick to their pattern of making drastic improvements to the camera technology in their mobile devices with the latest version coming in the fall of 2015.
