Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has outlined the major upgrades coming to the 2024 and 2025 iPhone lineups in his latest report. The iPhone 16 Pro will gain the tetraprism zoom camera from the iPhone 15 Pro Max and alongside the bump in screen size to 6.27-inch is expected to become quite the upgrade.

Furthermore, both iPhone 16 Pro models will upgrade the 12MP 1/2.6-inch (1.4µm) ultrawide angle camera to a 48MP 1/2.55-inch (0.7µm) unit that will still output pixel-binned 12MP 1.4µm shots. The ultrawide will keep the 6P lens design.

The next big upgrade will be to the selfie camera. Reportedly all iPhone 17 models will get a new 24MP front-facing camera with a 6P lens – a major improvement from the 12MP 5P unit on current iPhones.

Kuo says that Genius (Yujingguang) will be the sole supplier of the new ultrawide and selfie modules, leading to major revenue increase for the company in the second half of 2024 and 2H25.
