Huge iPhone upgrade revealed – but Apple fans all have the same complaint

SNAPPY happy iPhone lovers might be a bit disappointed if the latest upgrade rumour turns out to be true.

Before we even set eyes on the iPhone 14, there's already talk about its successor and what might be in store there.

According to an expert, the iPhone 15 Pro could be in for a slightly underwhelming upgrade.

This model could feature a periscope lens with a 5x optical zoom.

While a periscope lens does things differently resulting in a better optical zoom, many had hoped the tech giant might go a bit further.

Samsung and Huawei already offer similar tech in their smartphones, allowing an optical zoom of up to 10x.

And given that we're talking about next year's iPhone release – not this year's – Apple could find itself quite behind rivals by then.

That said, Apple are known for holding back from the crowd and opting to perfect new technologies first, so the proof will be in the pudding.

It's not the first time we've heard rumours about a periscope lens with a 5x optical zoom.

But it is also too far ahead to tell whether it'll become a reality when the iPhone 15 is launched at the end of 2023.

The latest indication comes via 9to5Mac, who has seen a report by analyst Jeff Pu.

Apple has apparently been in early talks with specialists Lante Optics.

iPhone experts at the firm have reportedly already received sample pieces and will make a decision by May.

It's claimed that if a deal is reached, the company will probably supply Apple with more than 100 million components.

But before all that, we still have the iPhone 14 to look forward to – and that in itself has had its fair share of rumours already.

The handset isn't due out until September but thanks to bits of information divulged by Apple insiders we largely know what it will look like.

Notably, the iPhone maker is strongly tipped to be ditching its notch, where the front-facing camera and Face ID sensor is housed, in favour of the hole-punch design pioneered by rivals Samsung and Huawei.

Apple is thought to be sticking with the design for its next line of iPhones as it seeks to move away from the curved edges sported for years by its devices.

Reverse wireless charging, which allows users to provide emergency battery power to friends, is also rumoured to be on board.
