iPhone 6 rumors: next iPhone could come with optical image stabilization

The news comes from The Motley Fool (via MacRumors), based on rumors of a collaboration between Apple and InvenSense.

InvenSense provides various sensors, such as gyroscopes and accelerometers, to major phone manufacturers.

MacRumors cites a Needham & Company analyst who recently said that he “did not get the impression” from statements made by InvenSense’s CEO and CFO that there’s any deal with Apple in the works.

However, The Motley Fool believes that InvenSense could offer Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) technology to mobile devices.

The report reads: “There’s one additional socket that InvenSense could win on the iPhone — an OIS gyroscope. The burgeoning technology is used to improve smartphone camera’s by stabilizing the image using a gyroscope. Samsung neglected to use the technology in the Galaxy S5, but Apple may decide to integrate it into the iPhone 6. If it does, InvenSense is a clear choice.”

A recent rumor regarding the iPhone 6 claimed the device could come with pressure, temperature and humidity sensors.
