According to recent rumors, Apple isn’t worrying about topping other smartphone makes in megapixels with the iPhone 6. Lately, Apple has been focusing more on components that will make for better photos rather than adding megapixels.
For instance, with the iPhone 5S, Apple made individual pixels larger. This enhanced the sensor’s ability to capture light, making for improved photo quality. Apple also improved components such as the lens.
Meanwhile, rivals are shooting for more megapixels.
