A deeper look at the inside of the rear-facing camera reveals just what we expect: a small lens.
Beneath the lens we see the camera's sensor.
The key feature differentiating this camera from that of the standard iPhone 6 is optical image stabilization—a technology we've seen before. The lens element on the left is nested into a tiny metal cage, nudged to and fro by the electromagnetic coils surrounding the sensor on the right.
Constant readings from the gyroscope and the M8 motion coprocessor give the iPhone 6 Plus detailed data on the movements of your shaky human hands, allowing it to compensate by rapidly moving the lens assembly. Result: sharper, clearer photos, even in low-light environments.
