This is a new camera
The most problematic module of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, the supply of which is difficult, is currently the compact tetraprism camera module (CCM). This was reported by the famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo on his blog.
Apple has decided to improve the performance of the tetraprism lens exclusively supplied by Largan. Due to the sudden increase in lens requirements and the urgent need to meet supply volume demands, Largan urgently expanded its tetraprism lens production lines.
Given the increased production challenges and the need to dedicate more resources, the unit price of the tetraprism lens has sharply increased by more than 20%, which will significantly increase Largan’s revenues and profits.

Both the iPhone 16 Pro Max and iPhone 16 Pro are expected to feature tetraprism telephoto lenses. Largan is likely to retain its status as the exclusive or primary supplier of tetraprism lenses next year. The second supplier could be Genius.
iPhone 15 sales will start on September 22.
