A dedicated telephoto lens (aka zoom lens) found on some iPhones boosts iPhone photography with optical zoom capabilities. Future iPhones are rumored to allow for even deeper zoom by adopting a periscope lens (or foldable lens as it's sometimes referred to). At its core, this technology diverts light through a prism and into a telephoto lens set at a ninety-degree angle to a rear-facing lens and buried deep inside the chassis.
Apple's next flagship iPhone may feature a significantly larger camera lenses on the back, with the entire camera module thought to protrude from the handset chassis by an additional 0.87mm compared to last year's iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The iPhone models that Apple plans on releasing in 2023 may feature a new periscope-lens design for the telephoto camera to enable much deeper optical zoom, says a reliable analyst.
Apple's upcoming iPhone 13 lineup isn't expected to bring major improvements to imaging hardware except for the flagship iPhone 13 Pro Max model which should apparently rock a wide-angle rear camera outfitted with a marginally-improved ƒ/1.5 equivalent lens.
