The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus will include an upgraded camera, 9To5Mac reported.

The publication reported that the camera’s megapixel count will be ramped up, moving from eight to 12. Therefore, the iPhone will have the ability to take higher-resolution photos than in past models.

The video capabilities are also due to be upgraded, according to 9To5Mac, including the ability for 4k video recording. Per the publication:

The benefits of 4K video recording include compatibility with the latest consumer television sets, improved stability and clarity, as well as benefits during post-production editing. Apple is likely to highlight 4K as one of the new iPhone’s premier additions for marketing purposes.

Apple’s newest iPhones will also see boosted FaceTime cameras, including upgraded sensors for better call quality. The announcements are slated to be made at Apple’s September 9 event in San Francisco.
