Following the disappointing sales run of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus could potentially feature some camera upgrades to encourage some demand. According to one tipster, a ‘new camera bump’ might be a notable change arriving in this year’s models. This small but valuable information suggests Apple has a broader plan for its flagship iPhone series slated to launch later this year.
iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are already rumored to feature 48MP main camera, which is said to be a notable improvement over the current 12MP sensor
As far as scarce information goes, ShrimpApplePro has done well on Twitter when it comes to masking any valuable leak. Even after questions were asked in the thread, he has refrained from responding to queries, but this tweet opens up a multitude of possibilities when it comes to the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus camera.
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus have previously been rumored to feature a 48MP main sensor, and from the looks of it, that camera could be the same one belonging to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. This change could force Apple to add a new camera bump to the less expensive models, significantly improving image quality over the 12MP sensor present on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus.

YouTuber Vadim Yuryev has some different thoughts on ShrimpApplePro’s tweet. He believes that the only reason for this new camera bump would be the existence of an additional camera, meaning that Apple could potentially add a telephoto unit to the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus.

Keep in mind he’s talking about the regular 15 models. They finally get telephoto?
Or the entire lineup gets a redesigned camera bump? https://t.co/N68WAVk4Sb

It is likely that the lack of sales of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus stemmed from the fewer upgrades and high asking price, so it might become mandatory for Apple to add another physical camera. The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra are still rumored to have some exclusive features, so it will be interesting to see how Apple presents the new lineup with an additional camera present on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus.
For now, we will recommend our readers treat this rumor with a pinch of salt, and we will be back with more updates. We have a feeling that Apple will continue to omit ProMotion technology from the less expensive models, as that is one feature that compels customers to upgrade to the more expensive models.Continue Reading
