Next iPhone could have an interchangeable camera lens system

When it comes to rumours about Apple’s next iPhone, nothing is off the table. Every little spec of information, be it a leaked chassis or even a patent application, becomes the focal point of the next big feature in the iPhone 5 or whatever they choose to call it. An increased screen size is the first big rumour and according to various leaks, this might just be true. Then again, we thought the 4S would have a larger screen, but that clearly didn’t happen.
If we go by this patent filed by Apple back in 2010, then it is possible that the next iPhone could come with a mechanism wherein the user can change the lens or add filters for different types of photography needs. An abstract from the patent reads, “A portable electronic device includes a digital imaging subsystem with a lens having an optical axis. A case encloses and supports the digital imaging subsystem in a first defined positional relationship to the case. A removable panel is coupled to the case and held in a second defined positional relationship to the case that covers the digital imaging subsystem without the removable panel being directly connected to the digital imaging subsystem. An optical component is supported by the removable panel such that the optical component is aligned with the optical axis and alters optical characteristics of the digital imaging subsystem. The device may include a power supply and an electronic control system coupled to the digital imaging subsystem and the power supply enclosed in and supported by the case.”
Will we seee this in the iPhone 5?

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
