iPhone 6 Plus

What's New On the iPhone 6 Camera?

With every generation of iPhone comes camera improvements, as Apple continues its tradition of high-quality imaging and display. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, while not changing the game completely, feature substantial improvements over the iPhone 5s camera. The raw number of megapixels has not increased past the 8MP seen in the 5s. However, Apple has improved the image sensor and added several still and video capabilities.

iPhone 6 camera roundup

Rumors that Apple would increase the number of megapixels on the iPhone 6 did not pan out. Specific components were even cited, however the 13 megapixel Sony Exmor IMX220 image sensor did not make the cut in the production iPhone 6. Improved Face Detection, a protruding lens ring, and a redesigned circular True Tone flash are all new to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. But what else has been changed in the latest iSight cameras?

Does the iPhone 6 Plus have more megapixels than the iPhone 5?

The iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 have the same amount of megapixels (8MP) as the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. However, this does not mean they have the same camera. Both the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 have improved iSight cameras with Apple's new Autofocus with Focus Pixels, improved Panorama photos (up to 43 megapixels) and improved face detection. The iPhone 6 Plus also ships with Optical image stabilization, which is not found on any other iPhone models.
