Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple has revealed a top secret related to the iPhone cameras. He made such a revelation on his visit to the Sony facility. He also stressed that the partnership with Sony would last well into the long term future. This automatically shows that future iPhone models would be using camera sensors that Sony makes.
Sony, in fact, provides sensors to loads of Android phone makers too. No wonder, the quality of such sensors are always a premium. Tim Cook had never made the Sony name public in context of where those awesome sensors on iPhones come from. The CEO is now on a tour in Japan.
Cook confirmed such details about the cameras via a tweet earlier in the week. He tweeted, “We’ve been partnering with Sony for over a decade to create the world’s leading camera sensors for iPhone.”
Over years, Apple has never opened its lips about its hardware sourcing for its iPhone models. Even deets on the RAM, the camera resolution, or the aperture never mentions any names. Apple, however, fine-tunes all iPhone cameras via software optimizations.
As per latest media reports, the Japanese giant has also developed an image sensor based on semiconductor architecture that helps capture higher light volume and thus, reduce underexposure from the photos.
