please resolve, thanks.

The 3-camera composition was quite iconic, I don't know if Apple would be willing to add another anonymous-looking phoneback to the market.
At the same time, I don't think they'd go over and add 5 of them either.

Does LiDAR count as a separate camera?

predicted NO

@DanielBalchev I wouldn’t think so. LiDAR doesn’t take any pictures right….

predicted YES

I am betting assuming it means the 15 Pro Max, the most premium iPhone., and not the regular 15 Pro.

Apple has only increased the number of camera twice so far in the 14 years that they have been releasing phones. I quite doubt they’ll increase it again.

most premium? So the 15 Pro Max? Or just the 15 Pro? That's probably the difference maker. Since I value description over title I assume you mean the Pro Max, so I'm buying YES.

predicted NO

@ShadowyZephyr I agree it should include the Pro Max. However there is only 1 time where the bigger phone size has a different camera count than the regular phone size, this was on iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. All other iPhone of the same generation has the same camera count regardless of size, if I recall correctly.

predicted YES

@esusatyo The leaks are saying, this will be the second.

predicted NO

@ShadowyZephyr In 15 Pro Max, I believe we will see a "Periscopic Camera" that will allow people to zoom in 5-6x (i.e. equivalent focal length of 100mm+). I think the number of cameras will still be 3 in total. We shall see.

@esusatyo I agree, spirit of the question is the # of cameras on the top-of-the-line. i.e. the most expensive option.

@RyanBennett Then, most leaks of the Max have pointed towards 4 cameras on the back.

@ShadowyZephyr I put limits at 33% and 40% if you're confident in your leaks.

predicted NO

@ShadowyZephyr I don’t know where you guys are getting your leaks from, but everything I saw was 3 cameras.

predicted YES

@Gen the newer ones seem to point towards 3, but there is also an iPhone 15 Ultra leak in the mix… now if the most expensive option is called the Ultra, that could be the one with 4 cameras
