If the trend from yesteryears is to continue, Apple users can expect the smartphone manufacturer to introduce their new line of iPhones later in the year. This September we are likely to see all the new iPhone models coming up including iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Mini, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. According to reports, two of the Pro devices are set to come with new camera systems as well.
It is believed the new camera system will feature sensor-shift image stabilization as well as autofocus features on the ultra-wide lens.
Though similar functionality is available in iPhone 12 Pro Max’s wide lens, DigiTimes has reported that the ultra-wide camera will come equipped with sensor-shift image stabilization too. Furthermore, the feature will be available in iPhone 13 Pro as well as iPhone 13 Pro Max.
“Alps Alpine and Mizumi are two main suppliers of VCMs used in iPhone 12 Pro Max, the sources said. Apple will reportedly upgrade ultra-wide-angle lenses of rear cameras for new iPhone models to be launched in second-half 2021 by adopting sensor-shift OIS (optical image stabilization) and automatic focus (AF), the sources noted. Consequently, there will be bigger demand for VCMs and the demand will further increase if Apple adopts sensor-shift OIS and AF for front cameras of new iPhone models to be launched in 2022, the sources indicated.”
With this new feature, the upcoming iPhone cameras can be expected to deliver more stable camera shots as well as sharper images than what we already get on today’s iPhones.
Last year, many people preferred to go with iPhone 12 Pro Max instead of iPhone 12 Pro just because of the better stabilization offered by the former model. We hope that people won’t have to make that sort of a decision this time as well and both the models will come with similar capabilities.
That said, remember that the rumors have come from DigiTimes and should be taken with a grain of salt until some solid news arrives.
