Apple Patent Hints at Triple Lens iPhone Camera


Apple just received a patent on a new kind of camera for mobile devices, one with a triple lens and triple sensor design. The patent suggests future cameras on iPhones and iPads will be able to capture photos with significantly higher quality.

Each sensor will also have its own lens assembly. By using three lenses, the system overcomes a potential flaw in multi-sensor systems: blind spots. With the two chrominance sensors offset, they compensate for one another if a near-field object (say, a speck of dust) blocks the light from one of them.

The end result for the user would be iPhone photos with better color as well as a bump in quality in challenging situations. The patent describes various configurations of the three sensors, one of which could potentially help capture images in low light with extra chrominance data compensating for low luminance.
