Apple has spent years silently testing iPhone dual-lens cameras

Apple has gained a lot of fame over the quality of its iPhone cameras since the iPhone 4 back in 2010. It’s taken years for competitors to be able to match this level of quality, but after five years, we can safely say that competitors have surpassed Apple by a lot with products like the LG G4 and Samsung Galaxy S6. Apple is now pressured to come up with something great for the next iPhone, and today we learn of how long the company has been working on it.

Altek is the company responsible for the dual-lens camera setups we currently see from HTC and Huawei, and its CEO Xiaru Wen has just come on record to state that Apple has spent the last three years experimenting with dual-lens camera systems for its iPhone. The report claims that Apple hasn’t been able to implement this technology because of a number of technical difficulties like blurred images, to the inability of suppliers to build enough of these. The good news is that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Apple’s acquisition of Israeli based LinX technologies reportedly fixes the blurring issues, and Largan will be in charge of building enough units for Apple’s demand to be met.

It’s hard to predict if this technology will come to the iPhone 6s, but given Apple’s need for a solution, the time has come.
