Next IPhone To Allegedly Have A Two-lens Camera System

The next iPhone capturing camera is going to be a doozy. According to John Gruber, Apple is working on a dual lens capturing camera system for the rear capturing camera of the next iPhone, which he heard "from a birdie of a birdie".

"The specific thing I heard is that next years capturing camera might be the biggest capturing camera jump ever. I don’t even know what sense this makes, but I’ve heard that it’s some kind of weird two-lens system where the back capturing camera uses two lenses and it somehow takes it up into DSLR quality imagery." - John Gruber

This two capturing camera system sounds remarkably similar to HTC's Duo Camera, which uses a secondary depth sensor to produce DSLR-like shallow depth of field, although artificially in software. This could possibly be what Gruber meant by "DSLR quality imagery", as the shallow depth of field is one of those things DSLRs do well with their gigantic lenses and sensors that you just can't acquire naturally on mobile phones.

The iPhone 6 just released so we'll have to wait another year to see if this rumors comes true, although Gruber has a track record of being correct more often than wrong.
