The iPhone 13 will have a design similar to that of the iPhone 12
The iPhone 13 is going to be very similar to the iPhone 12, but with two differences. Firstly, it looks like it will be more elongated and secondly, its rear cameras will be placed diagonally rather than vertically.
While we patiently wait for Apple to officially announce its new line of flagship phones, we already get a glimpse of the dummy iPhone 13 models.
Thanks to tech expert Sonny Dickson, a new image shows the back of the iPhone 13 Pro Max, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini models. Without internal components, a look at the dummy models reveals that the iPhone 13 Pro Max model will be slightly larger than the iPhone 12 Pro Max and suggests new camera orientations. The lenses of the photo modules will now be placed diagonally and no longer vertically.
The iPhone 13 Pro will have a new autofocus system in its camera
How will the iPhone 13 Pro beat the iPhone 12 Pro? Well, thanks to new camera technology. Reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, a specialist in Apple-related leaks, predicted earlier this year that Apple is working on an improved ultra-wide-angle lens for some of the iPhone 13 models, which are expected to be unveiled in the second half of 2021. Now Kuo claims the iPhone 13 Pro will have an ultra wide angle lens with autofocus.
The ultra wide angle lenses currently used by Apple are fixed focus, which means they cannot focus on a specific object. With autofocus, users will be able to adjust the lens to choose where they want to focus, just like with wide-angle and telephoto lenses on devices like the Sony A7C.
Besides autofocus, the analyst also claimed that the iPhone 13 Pro’s ultra-wide-angle lens will have six elements instead of five, which will likely result in better images and videos. With the iPhone 12, Apple has dramatically improved the Ultra Wide Angle lens with Deep Fusion and Night Mode.
Kuo’s note mentions that only Pro models of this year’s iPhones will be equipped with the enhanced ultra-wide-angle lens. He said, however, that Apple is expected to make the same improvements to all iPhone models with the next generation in 2022.
The iPhone 13 will fix the only “but” of the iPhone 12
While the iPhone 12 is a great smartphone, it only has one downside: battery life. The 5G antenna is such an energy-hungry part, so much so that Apple has developed a system to minimize its impact: when we put our phone in our pocket, 5G stops working and only activates when we use the phone.
