Apple, which wants periscope sensors in thin design in the iPhone series, has intensified its work. The new patent shows that this will be provided by a moving light bender reflecting system.
It was one of the first companies in the smartphone market to offer telephoto sensors, but Apple lags well behind its competitors. With periscope lenses, the company has rolled out its sleeves to bring an advanced technology to Android players who zoom up to 125 times digitally.
Apple has been working on periscope lens design for some time and different patent applications have been filed. The firm wants a design that doesn’t take up much space in the phone case, and the latest patent points to that.
According to the patent, Apple is developing a lens system that moves on multiple axes. This system is located in a prism or mirror on the iPhone body. It also helps with two light-bending components consisting of prisms or mirrors. This device also offers OIS support to the sensor so that it does not protrude much from the body.
The patent was filed under the name of optic engineer Yuhong Yao. Yao has done many remarkable sensor studies with Apple before. It seems that Apple is slowly coming to an end in the periscope sensor design on its head. Although not this year, we may see a new periscope sensor design on next year’s iPhone models.
