The ease with which an iPhone can be used for impromptu photography has become much appreciated by millions of people around the globe. These people are likely to be excited by recent evidence that upcoming iPhones for this year, rumored to be the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, could each come with a 12-megapixel camera, a big improvement on the camera in the current generation iPhone models.

A report from China has claimed that, though the iPhone 6S will see only minor enhancements upon the on-the-market iPhone 6, it will still come with a 12-megapixel camera. This is certainly promising, considering that an 8-megapixel camera has been standard with the previous four generations of iPhone.

The Chinese report does not actually specify that any future iPhone other than the 6S will have this better resolution camera, but we would be surprised if it is not included in the 6S Plus, too. Indeed, another report earlier this month, from KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, tipped the next iPhone models to each include a rear camera with a likely resolution of 12-megapixels, which would be great for high-resolution landscape photography in particular.
