In 2014, Apple made the biggest upgrade to its iPhone lineup: it finally introduced a larger iPhone, and not just one, but two models, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

This year, in 2015, we don’t expect another major redesign. Instead, rumors agree that Apple will stick to its tradition of focusing on internal hardware and software updates in the second year after it introduces a new design.

Now, the first rumors have started coming in from reputable sources, and it’s time to round up the picture around the 2015 Apple iPhones: the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, as most analyst expects them to be called.

More capable, 12-megapixel camera, and maybe, 4K video (finally?)

Apple first featured an 8-megapixel camera on the iPhone 4s back in 2011, and since then all iPhones have used 8-megapixel sensors with slight variances in the size of the sensor itself. At the same time rivals like Samsung, HTC and Sony have started using 16- and 20-megapixel main cameras, which theoretically are capable of capturing more detail in daylight but come with reduced pixels that make it harder to capture great low-light images.

In 2015, it seems that it is time for Apple to also make the jump to a higher-res camera, and rumors agree that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will focus on the camera experience with a brand new, 12-megapixel camera sensor.

A 12-megapixel sensor would also allow Apple to enable 4K video recording, something that is not possible on an 8-megapixel camera.

We have seen various rumors about this particular upgrade, including wild theories about clip-on lenses introduced by Apple, and even a mirror-like system that would allow using the rear camera also for selfies, but so far, these seem like a far stretch. Having a 12-megapixel camera with some new shooting options and 4K video recording, however, do seem possible and very likely.
