Apple is back in news, and, as expected, so is its heavily rumored next iPhone. According to reports, electronics retailer JD has posted a number of tips claiming that the iPhone 6 will sport a 10MP+ camera that will be assisted by a wide f/1.8 aperture.
According to JD, the brand new claims regarding the new iPhone have been pushed out by the Taiwanese supply chain of Apple. And according to them, apart from sporting a 10MP+ camera on the device, the iPhone 6 will also arrive with a new sensor with wide f/1.8 aperture and interchangeable resin lenses. Apparently, the interchangeable resin lenses have been developed by a Japanese company by the name of JSR.
While the new details, although still in a rumored phase, look pretty exciting, the report is not something new since Apple has already been said to have granted two different patents for a new iPhone's interchangeable camera lenses.
G4Games, which has carried the translated report from the original Chinese source, states: "As for the lens itself, JSR has developed a new resin called ARTON, which has impressive characteristics. It offers high heat resistance, it has good adhesion, adherence and miscibility, it's transparent, and yet it can filter specific wavelengths of light."
Moreover, the same report also states that the ARTON resin for the new iPhone can also be used for developing light guiding plates, optical films and lenses, and - as far as the iPhone is concerned - creating camera lenses for mobile phones. So basically, Apple is fully aware of the technology that's available out there that can be supported on the company's new iPhone, and the Cupertino-based tech giant fully intends on taking advantage of it.
The last time the Apple-based iPhone 6 was in news was when it was reported that the device could sport a sapphire glass screen with solar charging.
