2021 is going to be a year of evolution, rather than major changes in the iPhone 13 camera section. Among those small improvements, Ming-Chi Kuo affirms that we will see a wide-angle lens 1.5ƒ aperture on iPhone 13 Pro Max. This is what the analyst expects after his study of Apple’s Asian supply chain.
Best night photos and portrait effect for iPhone 13 Pro Max
The inclusion of a 1.5ƒ wide angle lens opens the door to better possibilities in night photography and with portrait effect, as collected in AppleInsider. All other iPhone models, from the iPhone 13 mini to the iPhone 13 Pro, are expected to maintain a 1.6ƒ-aperture wide-angle lens. In 2020, all iPhone 12 models share a 1.6ƒ wide-angle lens. The iPhone 12 Pro Max is the one that differs from the iPhone 12 Pro with an aperture of 2.2ƒ instead of 2ƒ on the telephoto lens.
Aperture refers to the diaphragm of a lens that lets light through in photography. Thanks to this little improvement, a greater entry of light will be allowed in photography poorly lit or at night. While it will also allow to increase the effect bokeh photos in portrait mode.
At the same time, Kuo has issued in his report that the supplier Sunny Optical is ready to pass the quality verification test required by Apple. This will allow you become part of your supply chain offering a 7P wide angle lens in stack. It would start its production in the second quarter of 2021.
The iPhone 13 is expected to have an improved camera system, reducing the protruding thickness at the rear. The portrait mode will be more accurate thanks to the lenses and LiDAR working more closely. The latter sensor is believed to become part of all iPhone 13 models.
