The next iPhone 5S will have an Apple-branded ‘Sonic’ camera: report
A new report by AppleInsider claims the next iPhone will have a camera that can take still images and video at the same time.
The report, which claims to have a source inside Apple, claims that the next model will include a new feature called “Sonic” which can capture video and photos simultaneously.
AppleInsider reports that the iPhone 5 will include both a “Sega-branded” camera with an 8 megapixel sensor and an Apple logo on the back.
The “SEGA-branded camera” will have both a front and rear camera.
The report states that the camera on the front camera is said to have “Apple-branded sensors”.
It has been confirmed that the “SONAR” camera on a 5S has an 8-megapixel sensor, with the front and back cameras both being 8-MP sensors.
Apple’s camera team has previously been seen shooting live video at events, including during Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in July 2015.
It was also revealed that the company was working on a “sensorless” camera, which could take video with no audio.
Apple had previously said that the cameras would feature “a new feature in iOS 11 called Sonic”.
It was previously believed that the feature would only work on the iPhone 4S.
