iPhone 15 rumors are hotting up, and the latest speculation suggest the range topping iPhone 15 Ultra could pack the largest image sensor yet in an iPhone. According to Apple tipster Ice Universe, the iPhone 15 Ultra - allegedly the new 'Pro Max' in the iPhone range - will receive Sony's new IMX903 48MP sensor. Hardly earth-shattering in terms of megapixel count, now Android phones have hit the 200MP mark, but the IMX903 stands out thanks to it's large 1/1.14-inch sensor size. By comparison, the current iPhone 14 Pro Max is equipped with a Sony IMX803, measuring 1/1.28 inches.
