Report says Apple iPhone 5S will feature 12MP camera with improved low-light performance
According to a source who works for Wonderful Saigon Electrics, the next iteration of the Apple iPhone will carry a 12MP camera. Although Wonderful Saigon Electrics makes camera modules for Apple, that doesn't automatically make this solid information. The Apple iPhone 5S is due after the Summer, according the story, and will do a much better job at taking pictures under low-light conditions than the current camera on the phone. Apple was pushed to improve low-light picture taking after the success that the Nokia Lumia 920 has had with its camera in this area.

Is there a track record that makes us want to put away the salt and rejoice in the 12MP camera that is a certainty for the next iPhone? Uh, not really. Last year, when perhaps a couple of people were calling for a 10MP camera for the Apple iPhone 5, this source said that the camera on the device would be 8MP which was exactly right. But truthfully, last year most were choosing between an 8MP and 12MP camera for what became the Apple iPhone 5.

If this information does turn out to be right on the money, the next iteration of the Apple iPhone won't see the light of day until next September. By then, the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 will be not quite 6 months old, and iOS fans are going to be climbing the walls. We also could be anxiously awaiting the results of the overhaul for iOS 7. The new software is said to be running late, but it's better to eliminate all of the problems now, before launch.
