In terms of enabling macro recordings with the iPad or iPhone, the article states that the function cannot be expected so quickly for the smartphone. Freely translated it reads like this: "I was pretty amazed. Lots of details, despite the iPad's smaller sensors. One of the reasons iPads may be more focused than the iPhone is because Apple doesn't have to worry about the device going into its pocket. This flexibility in arranging the camera module could be the difference that makes this great little superpower possible. Unfortunately, this also means that we suspect that this technology won't be coming to the iPhone anytime soon."

Reading recommendation: Halide App now also for the iPad Pro
