According to a statement by Corephotonics, talks began in 2012. An intensive effort was spent with Apple's engineering team to develop dual camera modules. In 2014, Apple was allowed to access lens designs, simulation software, and even prototypes.
However, in 2016, Apple's iPhone 7 Plus model without going to an agreement with the company introduced and thus the transition to the dual camera era is expressed. So, according to Corephotonics, Apple abandoned the company.
A senior official from Corephotonics knocked Apple's door before the launch. However, it is stated that a negative answer was received. iPhone 7 Plus and Plus's cameras, the company examines the technologies they developed for zooming is being used, he says.
