Apple Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released another investment note to his investors, in which he reveals a big feature coming to the next generation of iPhones. According to the note, the next generation of iPhones could come with sensor-shift-based image stabilization. If this ends up being true, it could mean some significant improvements to the camera are on their way.

The investor note states that Apple could move to sensor-shift based image stabilization, utilizing a 5-axis system for the same. Sensor-shift based stabilization is superior to optical-based systems in several ways, the most important being their ability to compensate for vibrations in 5 axes, while OIS can only handle two. This makes sensor-shift based stabilization better suited especially for video, and given that the iPhone has a long-standing reputation for being an excellent video camera, this would make perfect sense. Sensor-based stabilization also means that it would give Apple room to further shrink the element stack, but it appears that they may instead utilize the space. According to the note, Apple will use a 7p lens for the next iPhone. Currently, the lens on an iPhone camera is comprised of 6 elements (hence 6P) and a bump up to 7 could help the company achieve better flare control, suppression of internal reflections and also control chromatic aberrations. It will all, however, depend on the kind of glass used.

Besides this, the iPhone could finally get a large sensor, one measuring 1/1.9 inches diagonally. This could very likely be a 48 or 64-megapixel sensor, but it would really be quite something if Apple stuck to a native 12-megapixel resolution for the large format sensor. Lastly, it is also expected that Apple might add a 3D Time of Flight sensor to the main camera module on the back of the iPhone 12 series of smartphones.
