The iPhone 7 is set to offer a much–improved camera, with reports emerging that the device will feature optical image stabilisation (OIS) technology.
OIS is already found in the iPhone 6s Plus, but has been absent from its standard, 4.7–inch handsets.
Now a freshly leaked picture showing lens components destined for Apple’s updated smartphone suggests the technology is about to be extended across the range.
OIS allows for much improved low light performance, cutting down on so–called 'camera-shake' and delivering crisper, clearer shots.
It’s already a key selling point on rival handsets such as Samsung’s Galaxy S7.
The news is likely to please iPhone aficionados, who had feared the iPhone 7 would be a damp squib.
The larger iPhone 7 Plus is due to come with a dual lens camera set-up, leaving many wondering if Apple would bother offering new features as part of the single lens effort on the iPhone 7.
Both handsets are set to be revealed at a special event in early September, before going on sale later that month.
