Apple is reportedly planning to use periscope telephoto lenses in the iPhone lineup in 2022, according to noted Apple analyst Ming-chi Kuo.

Periscope lenses have been in use in Android flagships like the Huawei P30 Pro, Oppo Find X2 Pro and the likes, enabling long focal lengths with higher optical zoom.

Using the technology, companies like Huawei, Samsung and Oppo have managed to achieve up to 5X optical zoom and 100X in hybrid zoom.

New information coming out of the iPhone rumour mill claims what’s mainstream technology today for Android phones will be a marquee feature for iPhones in 2022. The Cupertino giant is reportedly planning to use periscope telephoto lenses in the iPhone lineup in 2022, according to noted Apple analyst Ming-chi Kuo. 
 
The analyst claims that Semco, a South Korean that builds autofocus motors for this year’s new iPhone models will be providing half of the supply of periscope optics to Apple for 2022 iPhones. 
 
Periscope telephoto lenses aren’t new at all. They have been in use in Android flagships like the Huawei P30 Pro, Oppo Find X2 Pro and the like, enabling long focal lengths with higher optical zoom. Traditionally, lenses require a lot of physical space to zoom closer to the object. With space being a key constraint in smartphones, periscope telephoto lenses are used which rely on prisms and mirrors (much like a periscope itself) to reflect light on the sensor.

Using the technology, companies like Huawei, Samsung and Oppo have managed to achieve up to 5X optical zoom and 100X in hybrid zoom. Telephoto lenses by themselves are not alien to iPhones. A secondary telephoto camera have been there on top-end iPhones since the iPhone 7 Plus. However, the level of optical zoom has always been limited to 2X. 
 
Shifting to periscope telephoto lenses indicates Apple wants to move up the zoom ladder, enabling higher zoom levels on future iPhones. Currently, the Huawei P40 Pro holds the record of highest optical zoom of 10X using a periscope telephoto lens. Will the iPhone be able to beat it? Only time will tell.
