iPhone 6 tipped to have 10-megapixel camera and improved filter

It's been a while since we've had a good iPhone 6 rumour. There have been plenty of hooky ones, but the latest has our mouths watering at the prospect. The iPhone 6 is said to be coming with an improved camera.

Chinese website IT168 reports that sources within the supply chain in Taiwan claim that the "next generation iPhone" will come with a 10-megapixel camera with an aperture of f/1.8. It will also have an improved filter, they say.

Japanese resin manufacturer JSR will make a new filter from transparent resin. The company's Arton resin, which is already used on digital and video cameras with CMOS sensors, is used to make filters lighter and thinner than IR filters.

This has the potential to take clearer images thanks to the resin's ability to minimise colour shifts of CMOS image sensors.

Previous reports had suggested that Apple would stick with the 8-megapixel snapper as used on the iPhone 5S, but with rivals adopting better camera technologies, it would be foolish for the company to stand still with its next flagship phone.
