If you’ve been waiting for the long-anticipated arrival of a periscope zoom lens for the iPhone, we’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that it’s reportedly coming to the iPhone 15 Pro Max, aka the iPhone 15 Ultra. The bad news is that it won’t come to the iPhone 15 Pro.

That’s according to a new report from trade site The Elec (via MacRumors), which says that Apple plans to put a “folded zoom” periscope lens inside the most expensive iPhone 15 this year. That ties in with a previous report by well-connected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who said that the Pro Max would be the only model in the iPhone 15 line-up to get the better zoom system.

When will the periscope zoom come to the iPhone Pro?
