The Next iPhone Will have a two-lens camera system

The next iPhone camera is expected to be like a mini pro camera. According to John Gruber, the manufacturer is working on a dual lens camera system for the rear camera of the next iPhone, which he heard "from a birdie of a birdie".

"The specific thing I heard is that next years camera might be the biggest camera jump ever. I don’t even know what sense this makes, but I’ve heard that it’s some kind of weird two-lens system where the back camera uses two lenses and it somehow takes it up into DSLR quality imagery." - John Gruber

This duo camera system sounds remarkably similar to HTC's two Camera phone, which uses a secondary depth sensor to produce DSLR-like shallow depth of field, although artificially in a software. This new technology could possibly be what Gruber meant by "DSLR quality imagery", since the shallow depth of field is one of those things DSLRs do well with their big lenses and sensors that you just can't get naturally on mobile phones.

Since the  iPhone 6 was just released, we'll have to wait another year at least to see if this rumors comes true, although John has a track record of being right more often than wrong.
