After years of issues, Apple has fixed the iPhone’s dual-lens camera plans

Apple could be set to equip the iPhone 6S with a dual-lens camera, according to new reports.

While rumours about a dual-lens setup have made the rounds before, it appears that Apple has finally overcome all major issues that have so far prevented its introduction.

According to the CEO of Altek, the company that makes dual-lens cameras for firms including HTC and Huawei, Tim Cook and co have spent the last three years secretly testing dual-lens cameras for iPhones.

Unfortunately, during this time, Apple’s big plans for a dual lens camera introduction have always been scuppered by significant issues.

Troubles reportedly encountered include blurry images and the fact that no manufacturer has so far been able to prove itself capable of coping with Apple’s huge production demands.

However, BusinessWeekly Taiwan has suggested that Apple’s April acquisition of LinX has led to a fix for the blurring, and any supply issues have also been ironed out.

This all points to the impending launch of a dual-lens iPhone.

While we’d like to see it rear its head this September, the successor to the iPhone 6 will likely feature a range of minor fixes, such as cosmetic tweaks and the addition of Force Touch.  

Still, it could be worth keeping your fingers crossed.
