Starting with the iPhone 4s from 2011, all iPhone models had 8 MP rear cameras, this making them look a bit dated compared to many high-end smartphones of today, which offer 16 MP or 20 MP cameras. This time Apple is going to make a great change – Apple will be moving from an 8-megapixel sensor to a custom imager billed as 12-megapixels in both of the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, according to a source.
The 12-megapixel camera will mean that the new iPhones will be able to take larger, higher-resolution photos than before. Because of an upgraded image signal processor that comes as part of the new A9 system-on-a-chip, the new sensor will not wash out or otherwise decrease the quality of photos. Besides new camera hardware on the rear of the new iPhone, the front FaceTime camera will also see significant improvements. In addition to an upgraded sensor for higher quality video calls and selfies, Apple will indeed add front flash support.
In addition to a much-upgraded rear still camera, Apple has decided to make a significant addition to the iPhone’s video recording capabilities: 4K video recording support. The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus will be the first iPhones capable of recording video in full 4K resolution and among the first phones on the market with such capabilities, though the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will definitely not be among the world’s first smartphones to offer 4K video recording, as there are already about 30 handsets that can shoot video in 4K.
