The iPad Pro’s Lidar scanner – also known as a time-of-flight sensor – could be headed to the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Thanks to a new leaked sketch, we now know what to expect from the next iPhone. The image was originally found by Concepts iPhone in a leaked build of iOS 14.
The image shows an upgraded camera module complete with four sensors. The main camera and telephoto lens can be seen in the same place as before but seem to have bigger in size. Meanwhile, the ultra-wide-angle lens now has been placed into the top-right corner. It’s being said that this sensor could support night mode and sensor image stabilization tech.
Last but not least, there a greyed-out sensor, which looks like the LiDAR scanner seen on the iPad Pro. As seen on the latest iPad Pro, this sensor determines distance by measuring how long it takes for light to hit back an object before reflecting back. The LiDAR sensor will massively improve AR capabilities on the iPhone.
