Apple confirms it uses Sony camera sensors for its iPhones
Olympus Oms, 18 hours agoImagine what iPhone would be like if Apple made their own hardware. Sorry. Apple can’t… anymoreImagine how different phone would be if they made their own software. Sorry. they cannot do such a thing.
Anonymous, 9 hours agoApparently they over ordered or apple was just stingy because they use the same outdated sensor… moreand people still compare camera on latest android mobile with outdated iphone camera..
Anonymous, 4 hours agoTheir SoC is their own design AFAIK. Unless you mean actually produce, as in produce. In … morelike most mobile processors, bionic chips are also based on 64-bit ARM architecture. so it is not true to say that it is their design.
their cpu are powerful because they are configured specifically for their particular operating system. where if mainstream android cpu is not configured for any specific environment. so their flexibility costs performance.
As a result you can install any linux touch based operating systems like ubuntu touch on your android phone. but the same may not be true for iphones
erodhika94, 4 hours agoSoftware tuning and optimization This is part of R&Dbecause sony doesn’t believe in computer photography like apple or other manufacturers. their phones are not for those who want everything to be spoon fed to them. I’m not saying I’m against computer photography or “AI camera”. but the magic of being in control of what you shoot is second to none. you leave your essence in the pictures you click. it may not be the “best”, but it’s yours
Anonymous, 20 hours agoDoes Apple actually manufacture any of their own components?Their SoC is their own design AFAIK.
Unless you mean actually produce, as in produce. In that case only a small few have their own fabs, so “no”, that part is normal though.
Marc, 20 hours agoThen how to explain that Sony cameras are worse than Apple-iPhone, Samsung, Huawei or even Opp… moreSoftware tuning and optimization
It is part of R&D
No wonder why Sony smartphones are not big in the market and trying hard not to enter the US market.
Fishy it is like Ericsson again
Somehow it reminds me of Nokia 808 and 1020, it uses toshiba sensor
Gad, 16 hours agoThen why don’t you ask Apple to hire you so you can make all the hardware for Apple Because you wouldn’t have apples other than those from the grocery store if it were up to me. But sure, I would love to stop their products.
No surprise here, Sony makes the world’s best camera sensors. Canon should know! Lol
Marc, 20 hours agoThen how to explain that Sony cameras are worse than Apple-iPhone, Samsung, Huawei or even Opp… moreThis difference still needs to be explained?
Software, that’s the software.
The hardware means nothing without the software, it is the software that determines the results. (this is why GCam works, why it can make cheap phones perform even better than high end results)
Apparently they over ordered or apple was just stingy because they used the same outdated sensor for the last three iphone series.
what other Apple would use besides Sony sensors…Samsung sensors are far behind
Marc, 20 hours agoThen how to explain that Sony cameras are worse than Apple-iPhone, Samsung, Huawei or even Opp… moreSony fans will just say “You’re using your camera wrong!”.
Sony is PERSONAL that you use manual settings and camera controls with their phones like their A1 or A6400; therefore they put THREE of them on the 1 iv and 5 iv.
The reason they look “worse” is because Sony basically does ZERO post-processing and they expect you to sit down at your computer and fix your photos on Lightroom…
Sony needs to pay a lot of attention to its camera software department to surpass Apple. Hardware is top notch, but software customization needs improvement. Unfortunately crApple is still the most lying and poor quality brand and devices for their prices ever in www, but their apps…Sony take note!
Anonymous, 15 hours agoWhere did I talk about the parent company? I think you just wanted this “you know nothing… moreThe last sentence in your post: “Only thing they have in common is the name, and the parent company where the money goes/comes from.”
So not only do you know nothing about business, you don’t even understand your own position. In any case, parent companies have full control over their subsidiary companies. It’s not just about money. In general, parent companies and subsidiary companies also do not give money to each other. Profits of a subsidiary company belong to that company. A parent company will get money in accordance with the shareholding ratio when its subsidiary company pays a dividend. A parent company will not give money to its subsidiary company.
Anonymous, 17 hours agoWow where are you getting your information from?Reliable sources. But spme ppl here who have fetish for samsung think samsung is only supplier of RAM/stprage, when there are atleast 5. Then they claim 50% of iphone is made by samsung when there is nothing but screen/touch.
well duh didn’t people already know that?

Yesterday I said I’d rather use flying pigeons instead of those and BAM! Comment deleted!
By the way, I’m not racist, I love Chinese food. But it’s not better than sushi! 🍥🍣
I wonder how long this comment will last 😄
