NEW YORK (Web Desk) – Apple has hired more than 800 engineers to only work on perfecting the iPhone camera.
It may seem like a lot for one piece of a phone, but the camera is actually made of 200 pieces, the director who oversees it all, in an interview with “60 Minutes”.
“To capture one image, there are actually 24 billion operations going on,” he added.
Inside the camera are four tiny wires, each half the width of a human hair. The four wires create a “micro suspension” of the camera parts that can absorb the shaking from hands to get a steady shot.
The engineers have to standardize the camera to take the best shot, whether it’s the bright light of high noon over the camera.
