When Apple launches the iPhone 13 series later this year, the new model may have a more powerful ultra-wide-angle camera.
- No moving lenses in fixed focus cameras
- Subcontractor reveals the detail
- Major improvements only with iPhone 14 in 2022
Subcontractor (possibly) reveals the new feature
It is well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who comes out with new information about the upcoming iPhone 13 series.
According to Kuo, Apple has developed a new ultra-wide-angle camera that will be used in several of the models in the series.
The reason why we already have the data today has to do with a new supplier to Apple, namely G-Shank.
It is a company that specializes in punching metal and developing tools for manufacturing machines. And G-Shank has, according to Kuo, been commissioned by manufacturer Largan to work on specific camera components.
Based on Apple’s past camera upgrade pattern, we believe that all four 2H22 new iPhones will have AF support for ultra-wide cameras.
These are ultra-wide-angle autofocus motors used in the iPhone 13 series. And if we are to believe Kuo and Apple’s previous camera upgrades, all four upcoming models can get this improvement.
Camera with fixed focus has no moving lenses
The actual difference from autofocus is that fixed-focus optics do not have moving lenses, as they are not needed. The optics are designed to make everything sharp within its operational area.
Another exciting news is that Ming-Chi Kuo says that the iPhone 14 is finally upgraded with a high-resolution main camera. Instead of 12 megapixels, it should have increased to 48 megapixels.
A welcome news as Apple and the iPhone series have slipped far behind the competition at this point.
