13 September 2012 – During Apple’s press event, the company has announced that the iPhone 5 is equipped with a new 8-megapixel iSight camera. The new camera shares similar feature of the camera on the iPhone 4S including the f/2.4 aperture, five elements optics and backside illumination (BSI), but the new camera is 25 percent smaller than its predecessor and 40 percent faster when taking photos. In addition, Apple has used sapphire crystal for optics of the camera, which is thinner and stronger.
