iPhone 7 Plus Latest News & Update: Telephoto Lens Replacing Dual-Lens Cameras For Apple Flagship In 2017?

Apple’s iPhone 7 may have had meager features to show though it still stands as the latest flagship the Cupertino company has to offer. The iPhone 7 Plus boasts of that dual lens camera module though some may still be apprehensive due to stability issues.

The iPhone 7 does make use of an optical image stabilization technology right now though it is limited to the wide-angle lens. All that could change next year with a new image stabilization feature applied to the telephoto lens, Cult of Mac reported.

KGI Securities Ming Chi-Kuo has come out to spill the beans once more on the new image stabilization feature. And as most are aware, Kuo has normally been spot on when it comes to rumors tied up to Apple and its product line.

If true, better things could be ahead for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. This may address stabilization issues when zooming in, a change that should be welcome news to the happy snapping iPhone 7 owners, Ubergizmo reported.

According to Kuo, the telephoto lens will be redesigned to support OIS in the telephoto CCM, eventually leading to longer calibration time and a more complex assembly process. It will also result in a bigger image circle that should account for better overall snapped photos.

Seeing how the iPhone 7 came out with minimal new features, addressing one of the high-profile features added should be welcome news to the ones who own or are planning to get it next year. It does, however, beg to ask if the upgrade will come via newly manufactured models or with the new iPhone 8 model in 2017.

As most are aware, the big change for Apple falls on the iPhone 8 in 2017. It is filled with rumored new features that include a shift to OLED screens and a redesigned look.
