Apple’s iPhone 13 lineup of 2021 products is still months away from launch, but leaks are starting to appear. New information from the well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo offers a glimpse into the cameras of the next-generation iPhone models. His latest hint to investors seems to suggest that the iPhone 13 series may have the same wide-angle lens as the current iPhone 12 models. This means the iPhone 13 range may not see major improvements in the wide angle sensor division of the camera module. Apple has yet to make an official announcement regarding the upcoming series, so this information should be viewed with a pinch of salt.
Kuo’s latest investor note, first reported by MacRumors, suggests that the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 mini may have the same f / 1.6 7P wide-angle lens as their predecessors – iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 mini. It is predicted that the iPhone 13 Pro Max will offer a wide-angle lens with an aperture of f / 1.5 instead of the wide-angle lens with an aperture of f / 1.6 built into the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Investor Note reportedly suggests that the wide-angle lens order for the iPhone 13 be fulfilled by Sunny Optical. The company is expected to deliver the lenses for the iPhone 13 to electronic components manufacturer LG Innotek as early as May. Kuo also claims that thanks to AR and Apple Car, the demand for optical lenses for Apple devices will only increase significantly over the next few years.
Last month, the analyst predicted that the iPhone 13 range may have smaller screens and bigger batteries. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are also equipped with ProMotion 120 Hz displays. Previous reports also suggest that some iPhone 13 series models may support always-on display and have improved facial recognition as well. Another report also pointed to possible Wi-Fi 6E support for the iPhone 13 series. Wi-Fi 6E offers all the functions of Wi-Fi 6 plus an additional 6 GHz band. This increases the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, resulting in less interference and improved bandwidth.
