The iPhone 12 Pro future-proofs with 5G and impressive photography chops

Originally published on  

(CNN) —  

For the second year running, Apple has a pro version of the iPhone. The iPhone 12 Pro is highlighted by a three-camera system on the back that sports a LiDAR sensor for impressive low-light performance, alongside a classy build featuring stainless steel edges and a frosted glass back.

Even with some notable upgrades, it keeps the same price tag as the iPhone 11 Pro with a starting price of $999. That gets you 128GB of internal storage and your pick of color: graphite, silver, gold and Pacific Blue.

Apple searches for ‘folding camera’ supplier to improve iPhone zoom

Apple’s iPhone camera may improve the zoom without needing to increase the size of the camera bump, with the company allegedly looking for suppliers of “folded cameras” for future models.

The size limitations of smartphones make it hard to design camera systems that offer better features while also maintaining a minimal size. For some features, like an enhanced zoom, that requires more space than is currently offered, but that may not be the case in a future iPhone.

Apple is said by sources of ETNews to be wanting to include a triple camera system in future iPhone models, but one that relies on a “folded camera” for at least one of the trio.

Rather than being a straight line of sight between the sensor and the subject through lenses, a folded camera structure relies on a mirror or prism in the middle of the lens collection. This

iPhone 12 Pro Max camera: See my rugged photo adventure along California’s coastline

California’s Lost Coast is a world of its own at the edge of the continent.

With few towns or major roads, it’s best explored via the 25-mile Lost Coast Trail that winds along black sand beaches and rocky shores.

A few weeks ago, I took the iPhone 12 Pro on location to the high Sierra, visiting Lake Tahoe for a wondrous 24 hours to test its camera. The results were excellent, and now Apple’s adding even more camera punch with the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
