We have previously heard that the camera in the new iPhone 6 is expected to use Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS), rather than Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), although it would appear that Apple plans to use OIS in future iPhones to produce super resolution photos.
According to a recently discovered patent filing by Apple, the company has plans to produce super resolution photos on future versions of the iPhone using optical image stabilization.
An iPhone with this new feature would take multiple photos in rapid succession, and each photo would have a slightly offset angle, the images are then processed through a processing engine to create a single super resolution image.
This certainly seems very interesting, although this is not a feature we are expecting to launch with the iPhone 6, we suspect we will have to wait for another version of the iPhone to be able to snap super resolution images.
We previously heard that Apple may continue to use an 8 megapixel camera for the iPhone 6, and it will come with a range of software improvements, and advanced features over the iPhone 5S camera.
As we mention previously we are expecting two versions of the iPhone 6 this year, a 4.7 inch model will apparently launch in September, and a larger 5.5 inch model later in the year, possibly in November.
