When it comes to cameras on the iPhone, Apple has never really gone too crazy in terms of the sensor like we see in other phones with 108MP sensors. In fact, if you look at the specs of the iPhone 13 Pro Max, Apple’s top model, it actually only uses a 12MP sensor.
However, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he recently tweeted that Apple may actually increase the resolution of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models to have a 48MP camera. Therefore, don’t be surprised if you notice that the camera bump on the back of the phone is bigger.
The main reason for the 14 Pro/Pro Max’s larger and more prominent rear camera bump is the wide camera upgrade to 48MP (up from the 13 Pro/Pro Max’s 12MP). The diagonal length of 48MP CIS will increase by 25-35%, and the height of the 48MP 7P lens will increase by 5-10%. https://t.co/lrwgmnLNce

That’s a huge leap from the 12MP found in the iPhone 13 series, though we have to wonder what better quality we can expect from it. To be fair, shooting at higher resolutions is usually something professionals prefer if they want to print their photos and don’t want to lose too much detail.
As social networks tend to compress our photos and we view them on a small screen, it is difficult to appreciate a 108MP sensor. Either way, we’re still months away from Apple officially announcing anything, so take that with a grain of salt.
