Will Apple make a phone with a zoom lens?

To me this seems like a no-brainer, the utility of a zoom lens cannot be understated on a phone, and there are alsready some very thin point and shoot cameras with zoom lenses and there is one recent phone that has a 24-240mm zoom lens and a 1/2.3" sensor.* Is there any reason Apple wouldn't want to launch a phone like this? Even a 24-120mm or so lens would be okay especially if they could keep the maximum aperture fairly large at the wide angle end, like f/2.8 or lower. I'd definitely consider such a camera if it was ever offered because I like Apple products.

*PLEASE do not troll or flame about Apple or the maker of this other phone, I have been specifically asked not to mention it by name so as not to encourage people to make mean comments. THANK YOU!
