A new claim originating from Chinese platform Weibo suggests that Apple‘s future iPhone Ultra model will be able to capture spatial videos and photos that can be viewed on Vision Pro. If true, this might mean that Apple will arm this unspecified Ultra model with a powerful camera system similar to Vision Pro, which is expected to feature a specialized three-dimensional camera.
The account, which previously shared some accurate Apple leaks and plans, talked about the Vision Pro in a recent post and shared that the iPhone Ultra’s camera will “lead the market to rethink what kind of photos and videos a mobile phone should take.” This indicates a significant link between the two devices in the future, with the iPhone Ultra expected to be powered with more powerful camera hardware components.
This will be crucial in order for the smartphone to attain the same spatial image-capturing as Vision Pro. As Apple noted during the introduction of the product, it said that Vision Pro’s camera system will be its first three-dimensional camera creation. To clarify, the headset will be able to view content from other devices. However, as Apple described, photos and videos taken using Vision Pro’s camera system will be more immersive.
Featuring Apple’s first three-dimensional camera, Apple Vision Pro lets users capture, relive, and immerse themselves in favorite memories with Spatial Audio. Every spatial photo and video transports users back to a moment in time, like a celebration with friends or a special family gathering. Users can access their entire photo library on iCloud, and view their photos and videos at a life-size scale with brilliant color and spectacular detail. Every Panorama shot on iPhone expands and wraps around the user, creating the sensation they are standing right where it was taken.
Currently, it is unknown what particular lineup will feature the iPhone Ultra model with the said spatial camera capability. Nonetheless, a past report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman indicates that Apple might introduce one alongside an iPhone Pro Max next year. If this is true, this might be the series the claim is pertaining to. As for the camera system itself, the spatial capability will add to the pile of features Apple is expected to introduce to its iPhone creations, including the rumored stacked CMOS image sensor and super telephoto periscope camera in iPhone 16.
