Apple has been stuck on the 8MP camera for three generations now, dating back to the iPhone 4S from 2011. However, the aperture has dropped from f/2.4 in the iPhone 4S/5 to f/2.2 in the iPhone 5S. Apple has clearly demonstrated that 8MP is enough for a smartphone as it has continued to focus on the overall photography experience. [Read more...]
