iPhone 12 last-minute leak just revealed huge camera upgrades

Up until now, most of the iPhone 12 rumors have centered around the sizes, prices and key specs like the A14 Bionic chip and storage. But now the iPhone 12 camera upgrades are coming into focus, and there’s a lot to break down. 

According to leaker Max Weinbach (@Pineleaks), the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro Max will both offer plenty of camera enhancements, from a much better zoom on the regular iPhone 12 models to an improved Night mode on the iPhone 12 Pros. Here’s everything you need to know.

As first spotted by vMacRumors, Weinbach says that the “digital and optical zoom will be getting a massive boost this year.” Because the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 won’t feature a telephoto lens, they’ll have to rely on software. But you can expect “significantly extended digital zoom, both quality and distance wise.”

The latest leak thickens the plot

At a virtual event on Tuesday, Oct. 13, Apple is expected to reveal the iPhone 12. We’ve heard a lot of rumors about the new phone’s specs, price and potential 5G features, as well as the new phone’s charging capabilities. We expect that the iPhone 12 will feature wireless charging, as every iPhone has integrated that since the iPhone 8. But on Friday, leaker Kang posted on Chinese social media site Weibo that Apple will also introduce a magnetic iPhone MagSafe charger, using the same branding as the magnetic charging cables found in its older MacBook laptops.

Apple iPhone 12 Launch: Pricing, Model Specs Leak Out Ahead of Event

Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 12 next week but details supposedly spilling the beans on the tech giant’s forthcoming first-ever 5G phones have emerged on social media.

The caveat: The info is unconfirmed and may not fully square with what Apple actually announces at its launch event, slated for Oct. 13. It’s not clear how Kang came by the details. That said, according to AppleTrack, whoever Kang is has a good track record of predicting Apple announcements, including accurately reporting several of the company’s announcements from this year’s WWDC and the new iPad Air model

Astronauts aboard the space station and flight controllers on Earth have been trying to track down the location of this tiny leak for weeks.

NASA said in a statement Tuesday that the leak, which appeared to be growing in size, had finally been spotted in the main work area of the Zvezda Service Module on the ISS.

“The size of the leak identified overnight has since been attributed to a temporary temperature change aboard the station with the overall rate of leak remaining unchanged,” the statement said.

The leak poses no danger to the crew on board the ISS, NASA said. There are currently three people aboard the ISS: Station commander Chris Cassidy (the solo American) and Roscosmos cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station sprung to action late Monday night following concerns that a persistent air leak had grown in size. It turned out to be a false alarm, but during the event, the crew managed to trace the source of the leak to a Russian service module.

NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy and Roscosmos cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner were awakened by flight controllers late Monday and told to scour the Russian side of the International Space Station in an attempt to pinpoint the source of an air leak that appeared to be growing in size. Thankfully, the flight controllers were wrong, as they mistook a temporary temperature change aboard the ISS for a growing leak, according to NASA. The overall rate of the air leak, which was detected a year ago, is the same as it was before.
