# **How far can the iPhone 16 Pro Max take photos?** ## **According to the latest rumors, the telephoto camera of the iPhone 16 Pro Max can deliver super telephoto shots.** Current rumors about the iPhone 15 Pro Max suggest that this will be the first device to use a periscope arrangement. The details of the iPhone 16 Pro Max can prove the capabilities of this department. According to a source from Weibo related to the iPhone 16 Pro Max supply chain, the camera system will include a 1/1.14-inch sensor, larger than the 1/1.28-inch size used in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Larger sensors mean higher resolutions are being developed. Of course, Apple could also maintain the resolution of the sensor and make the pixels in the sensor larger. This can help boost performance in low light as well as improve background blur or bokeh inside the camera. Along with that sensor, a 7-piece “molded plastic-glass module” lens arrangement will be used and in a periscope format. Periscope lenses use a prism or mirror to project light at an angle, allowing for a lens layout much longer than the thickness of a smartphone, resulting in an extremely long zoom range. So far, rumors have suggested that the periscope lens will only be used in iPhone Pro Max models from iPhone 15 onwards. Therefore, it is highly likely that the periscope lens will appear on this year’s iPhone 15 Pro Max. This will help the product compete better with other high-end Android smartphones on the market.
