If only, this site was more with interactive inducing interface. This site is run by enthusiasts though, never let it become corporate centric like MacRumors. Until then, that's what keeps AppleInsider loving unlike PhoneArena. I would like to someday offer my enthusiastic service here as well.

The telephoto lens needs to be given equal importance and emphasis as the wide-angle lens. Starting with f/1.8 Aperture.
It's also prime time that other areas are met like the 6-element lens which are made of plastics. During the iPhone 4s-5 period Apple planned of succeeding to glass citing Nokia's examples but it wasn't considered cost effective at time being ($1). Now, LG out-of-the 6 has replaced one with Glass as a start but Apple is already familiar with replacing all of them with Glass from Plastics which doesn't absorb natural colours and light.
Apple had even planned out successors with Crystals like Sapphire and eventually Diamond but taking the first with Glass is like moving from transmissive to emmisive displays, Quantum-Dots & microLED are just evolution to OLED. If the plastics are replaced than truer colours can be retained instead of artificially saturating them but also purer light can be achieved eliminating noise even at 50mp. Software based artificial saturation can be replaced with natural colour and also more light.
Sadly, it seems Apple forgot this crucial exploration after Steve Jobs expired.

I'm guessing that building a telephoto module with glass element(s), large aperture, and a larger sensor in a stack height less than 8 mm, and manufacturing that in volumes of at least 50 million units is non trivial.
However, aside the fanboyism, The discussion mentioned above is not a random idea of an individual but an explorative discovery evaluated & portrayed by Apple alone. I hope Apple is conscious enough to not live in the same bubble as it's worshippers develop upon. Pixel XL 2 made quite a good show today.
Apple saved that idea when they might feel the need to increase resolution. They have avoided that road for sometime now. Largan have started production of 18mp Image Sensor this October.

Mini, Mac Pro and to some extent MacBook Pro users have been neglected, pushed out in the cold for years. Add to them macOS Server users, and with the deprecation of OpenGL, an entire class of high end graphics and scientific users from whom the ability of running iOS apps is virtually irrelevant.
The installed base of Mac users is ~150M.
The installed base of iOS users is ~1,150M
The media narrative that Apple isn't updating Macs
Besides ALL the iOS users are 100% dependent on Macs.
Not a single app is created without a Mac.
NOT catering to the developer community who creates and maintains those apps is over time cutting the branch you sit on.
NOT catering to the IT professionals running the backends and infrastructures for those devices in everything from small businesses to large enterprises is over time cutting the branch you sit on.
