According to sources, it appears that the rear camera on the next iteration of the Apple iPhone will be a 12MP shooter, a bump from the 8MP camera that adorns the back of the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus.
More information about this camera has leaked out from Asia, and according to these reports Apple will use a sensor built by Sony for the new shooter.

Additionally, there will be a small but significant change with this sensor that will allow the camera to be better equipped to produce quality images under low-light conditions.
The addition of a white sub-pixel, making it a RGBW sensor, allows for improved camera performance when lighting is not optimal. There is also talk that the autofocus speed will be faster, perhaps with the use of phase detection.
