Apples A new ‘fold’ camera is reportedly working on the technology that will allow users to increase the zoom capability of their phones. Apple has filed a new patent with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for camera technology, according to a patent application patented by Apple. Entitled “Zoom Lens and Imaging Equipment”, the patent application reveals technology that will use multiple adjustable lenses that will allow for variable magnification.
What does zoom lens and imaging equipment mean for iPhone?
Developing technology will help Apple IPhone It will also help the company to manage magnification better and avoid deteriorating image quality. Lens systems use more than two lenses that run along a common optical axis. This means that users will be able to achieve better optical zoom. Most of the smartphones currently available in the market use fixed lenses and the devices also rely on software with digital zoom for magnification which reduces the image quality.
The technology mentioned in Apple’s patent application is not entirely new. The same technology is used in smartphones with periscope cameras. The technology is used by most brands to add advanced lens systems for telephoto cameras to their smartphones. According to previous reports, an agreement has been reached with Apple LG Periscope lens for improved zoom capability.
After seeing the new patent application, the report suggests that Apple’s agreement with LG will push the zoom capability of Apple devices closer to the newly launched Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. According to the application, the use of the new technology will not be limited to the iPhone and can be used on desktop computers, laptops, notebooks, tablets, slates, pads, set top boxes, an augmented reality (AR) and / or virtual. Reality (VR) headsets and several other devices.
The technologies seen in patent applications do not always make it into actual products and if they do, it takes years to implement. So you shouldn’t expect an Apple device anytime soon with this technology.
