Apple tends to be ahead of the curve when it comes to the camera sensor found in its iPhone, and while the iPhone 6 Plus might only feature an 8-megapixel rear-facing snapper, it's a damn good one.
Well, the new iPhone could have an even better sensor thanks to a patent that was granted to the company from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The new patent is for a three-sensor, prism-based camera design that teased it as a "digital camera with light splitter" where an individual sensor would be capable of collecting red, green, and blue wavelengths.
This new sensor would be more expensive for Apple to bake into its next-gen iPhone, and it would also take up more space within the handset, something Apple is not going to be happy with. We should hear more about the new iPhone in the next couple of months.
