Next time that someone with an Apple device will shame you into having a Sony phone, tell them that their iPhone uses Sony lenses…
We are all aware that not all of an iPhone’s specs are released when it is introduced by Apple. The company decided not to reveal the iPhones’ camera sensors, the RAM numbers, or whose hardware manufacturer’s goods were used.
Even though this specification is often disclosed by a third party, there are times when we are unaware of it. What sort of camera sensor the iPhones use is one of many unsolved questions that we all have about them. Read this article to the end to find out since we now have official proof of it.
Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, shared a picture of himself exploring with a group of Sony cameras on his social media accounts. He also said that Apple and Sony have been developing the cameras for more than ten years. He shared a photo of himself touring Sony’s camera division with Kenichiro Yoshida, the company’s CEO.
This dispels many customers’ concerns, allowing us to finally establish that Sony’s camera sensors are really utilized in iPhones.
In addition, the maker choose whether to exclude data on a number of additional factors, such as battery and chipset information. Thankfully, a supply chain specialist has found that Corning is responsible for producing the glass sheets that cover the front and rear of iPhones.
Apple frequently uses OLED panels from Samsung and LG for its displays. Furthermore, it is undeniable that chips are based on the TSMC manufacturing node. Based on the power use of their chipset, one shouldn’t even wonder if it is Samsung’s or TSMC’s node.
However, the Sony-Apple deal for camera hardware was still mostly unproven and doesn’t seem to be coming to an end anytime soon. Rumor has it that Sony is working on a new sensor that allows in more light while reducing the possibility of the picture being underexposed or overexposed. Of course, future iPhone models will make advantage of that sensor.
