The larger lenses seem to be mainly responsible for the iPhone 14 Pro’s camera bump being much larger than the iPhone 13 Pro’s.

The camera bump is a well-known design element of the iPhone, used to house the bulkier camera sensor components in an otherwise slim body. For the iPhone 14 Pro, it looks like the bump and the lenses inside it could increase in size for 2022.

leak on Naver by serial leaker “Eyes1122”, a photograph shows an iPhone 13 Pro being held inside what is believed to be a case for the iPhone 14 Pro. You can clearly see in the picture the differences in size for the camera bump.

Closer inspection indicates that the three lenses, LiDAR sensor, and flash are slightly misaligned between models, with the case version being more spaced out. If genuine, this indicates that the camera bump as a whole is slightly increasing in size.

At the same time, the spaces in the housing for the lenses are also much larger than the versions used in the iPhone 13 Pro, with significant space around the camera section. This could indicate that larger lenses are used in the model, and possibly larger sensors as well.

Apple is rumored to include 48-megapixel camera sensors in its high-end models, up from its previous use of 12-megapixel sensors. There has also been speculation that the camera bump has been removed, but others have claimed that the bump remains to accommodate the much larger components.

With Apple’s special event taking place on September 7, it won’t be long before Apple unveils its new hardware to the world.
