Although the Apple iPhone 13 will still be available later this year, we could still be certain that the upcoming iPhone series will come with various technological improvements. One of the improvements will be on the photography sector. Consumers are aware that the iPhone comes with the best photography solution. As we are nearing the actual launch event, we will get new reports. Significant imaging enhancements should make their way to the upcoming iPhone models. It is possible that the iPhone 13 will be available in September or October this year. There could be some game-changing revisions and we heard them from Ming-Chi Kuo, the well-respected analyst in the industry. MacRumors, another trusted source in the industry also confirms the possible upgrade. Kuo said that two more capable version, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will have more sophisticated ultra-wide-angle camera solutions. Other sources say that all variants of iPhone 13 will have the same capability. This means, iPhone 13 Mini, regular iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will have ultra-wide camera equipped with f/1.8 aperture, which is a good improvement over the f/2.4 aperture for the iPhone 12 series.
Lower value equals to wider aperture and it means that the image sensor will get more light. This means, pictures will look sharper at night and brighter during the day. In other word, the iPhone 13 series will have improved low-light performance for its ultra-wide camera. Technically, it should be quite easy for Apple to incorporate this technology in any setting and scenario. The iPhone 12 series already has decent low-light performance, so we could be hopeful that the iPhone 13 series will be much better. On paper, even the iPhone 13 Mini could beat the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra when capturing pictures at low-light situations. The Samsung Galaxy Note 20, Note 20 Ultra, S21 and S21 Plus. The iPhone 13 series won’t be the first devices f/1.8 aperture. The Huawei Mate 40 Pro already has f/1.8 aperture. Although Apple is not a pioneer, it is possible that the company will make this a new standard in the market. At the moment, we still don’t have any information about LiDAR scanner, primary camera and telephoto lens. It is possible that all models of iPhone 13 will have ToF 3D depth sensor, while the telephoto camera will be one of the differentiators between the regular and Pro versions of iPhone 13.
The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max may have primary camera with larger resolution. Finally, we hear reports that the notch for the selfie camera and Face ID sensor will be smaller than the one on the iPhone 12. This will make the Apple iPhone 13 looks more appealing. In the end, this is just speculation and in fact, the device will be actually the iPhone 12S. Each year, Apple releases new improvements for its flagship devices and it will be quite interesting to see how the new iPhone version will be like.
