Apple is reticent about most details about its upcoming devices but seems like we finally have a clue about when the company’s smartphones will come with a periscope lens. Popular Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo has retiterated his claims that the iPhone 15 series will be the first to get a periscope lens, but he now adds that it will be limited to the iPhone 15 Pro Max, and not both Pro models as earlier expected. From the iPhone 16 series, the periscope lens will be available for both iPhone 16 Pro Max and iPhone 16 Pro. “The main specifications of the periscope for iPhone 15 and iPhone 16 are similar, including 1/3″ 12MP, f/2.8, sensor-shift support, and 5–6x optical zoom,” he said.
While it is expected that Apple saves the best of its innovation for the top most variant of the series, the latest report might dissapoint some Apple fans.
The buzz around periscope lens comes at a time when Apple’s competitors, like Samsung (S20 Ultra with hybrid 10x optical zoom), have already got on board the perisope lens wagon, which would see iPhone’s current zoom range of 2.5x almost double.
Though it might seem like Apple has been late to the part, unlike the telephoto lens, some of its old patents suggest otherwise.

As mentioned earlier, Periscope lens would increase the maximum zoom on iPhones and has been a preference for smartphone buyers lately. It allows 5x to 10x optical zoom capabilities, which is not possbile with regular smartphone cameras.
In general, the technology involves refraction of light onto the lens sensor via a mirror or prism, for magnification.
Periscope lens on smartphones takes up more real estate than other lens and unlike the zoom lens on DSLRs, are built on the inside.
