We’ve heard a lot of rumors lately about the camera upgrades that the iPhone 13 family will supposedly bring to the table. According to a new research report by TFI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via AppleInsider) Apple will equip the iPhone 13 Pro Max with an F / 1.5 wide-angle camera. For comparison: the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max have a wide-angle camera with an aperture of 1: 1.6. What is the benefit of a f / 1.5 aperture for the wide-angle camera of the iPhone 13 Pro Max?
In short, a larger aperture lets in more light, which leads directly to improved results in low-light scenarios. A larger aperture also helps when clicking on better portraits, as it can produce a better bokeh effect on photos. However, it remains to be seen what difference an F / 1.5 wide-angle camera on the iPhone 13 Pro Max makes compared to the F / 1.6 Snapper on its predecessor.
The rest of the iPhone 13 family is said to be equipped with an F / 1.6 wide-angle camera. It seems that Apple wants to give the more expensive “Max” model an edge over its siblings again to justify the price premium. Last year, Apple equipped the iPhone 12 Pro Max with the more efficient sensor-shift image stabilization technology, while the rest of the phones in the iPhone 12 series were equipped with optical image stabilization (OIS). According to a DigiTimes According to reports, Apple will roll out the new stabilization technology for the entire iPhone 13 series this year.
Kuo adds that the entire iPhone 13 series will be based on a 7P lens assembly for the wide angle camera. Previous leaks suggest that the iPhone 13 Pro and its Max version will come with a Samsung-supplied 120Hz LTPO OLED panel and the notch will be smaller as well. Additionally, the iPhone 13 Pro pair may get a matte black finish this year, and a 1TB storage option may also be available to break your wallet.
