The iPhone camera has come a long way since the first iPhone 2G was launched in June 29, 2007. Apple Inc. designed and marketed the iPhone smartphones, and the original iPhone during that period was equipped with a 2-megapixel rear camera.
If you are one of the billions of iPhone fanatics, you were probably very proud and happy with your 1600×1200 resolution photos back then. But, as technology continued to evolve, the innovation of the iPhone camera led to the production of the iPhone 4 in 2010, the first device from Apple with a front-facing camera.
Selfies were starting to become a trend all over the world, and the craze continues in rapid pace in the present year without any indication of slowing down. For selfie-lovers and photo-capturing enthusiasts, the iPhone camera never ceases to evolve in order to offer greater innovations for iPhone photography with each new release of an iPhone model.

However, does that mean every future Apple phone is going to be selling an upgraded camera? Well, for the foreseeable future, that might just be the case.
Seeing as the world is becoming more digitally focused, more emphasis will be placed on imagery and image quality thereby making it easy for Apple to get away with releasing the same phones with few tweaks such as a diverse camera and better battery life.
But, that is not to say close rivals such as Samsung and Google Pixel do not have something else to offer. Hints and latest image reveals of the capabilities of the Google Pixel 4XL and Samsung S11 are said to have similar camera offerings as the iPhone 11 if not better.
