If Apple's past form is anything to go by, it will launch an iPhone 6S this autumn. Like previous 'S' iterations, it will feature minor spec-sheet upgrades rather than be a complete overhaul. And if one analyst is to be believed, the camera will remain unchanged.
There's nothing wrong with the iPhone 6's snapper, of course.
It's actually one of the best to be found in a smartphone. And recent additions, such as time-lapse and slo-mo, make it even better. But it has stayed at 8 megapixels since the iPhone 4S launched in 2011.
According to Taipei-based analyst Jeff Pu, that won't change for the iPhone 6S.
Pu made the prediction when he forecast that Largan Precision Co – Apple's major camera lens supplier – will experience limited growth in the near future because of the slow uptake of higher-resolution cameras among smartphone-manufacturers.
However, this doesn't mean the next iPhone's camera won't be any good. On the contrary, Apple might sacrifice the extra pixels to cram in more features.
One rumour suggests the 6S will feature a dual-lens camera with optical zoom and 3D pressure sensor.
If Apple sticks to previous release schedules, expect the 6S to touch down in the autumn.
