Apple has been in the business of acquiring a large number of companies in the past two years, but one place that they have been lacking is in camera companies. While they still haven’t purchased one, they have not taken on an expert from one of the largest manufacturers in the country.
Ari Partinen has been hailed by Nokia executives as one of the leading experts in the industry. Under his guidance, Nokia saw 41 megapixel cameras and more begin to enter production, with plenty more in the pipeline. In bringing that kind of creative power to Apple, the company will be able to make sure that the cameras in their upcoming iPhone is one of the most powerful yet.
They have fallen behind other providers in terms of megapixel count, but that doesn’t mean that they have inferior products. Compared to other phones and mobile devices, the iPhone has been hailed as one of the greatest options for photographers, making this a great way to stay on top in future generations. The hiring of Partinen comes at a time when the company is preparing to ship several new products within a years time, making it all the more important.
It isn’t yet known specifically what Ari will be working on at Apple, but we do know that he will be a valuable asset to a company that has already brought on new directors for retail and other sections of the company. Stay tuned to see what kind of incredible innovation will be coming for the iPhone, iPad, and maybe even iWatch when it comes to their camera power.
