An article on The Verge says iPhone’s ultrawide Camera is Likely to Get a Huge Boost. Now, you know the iPhone 12 was recently launched but there are ideas on what the next year’s lineup could look like. According to Ming-Chi Kuo (TFI Securities analyst) iPhone will keep the new form factor and screen sizes that were introduced with the iPhone 12 line however an improved ultrawide camera on the high-end pro and pro max models.
Before now, Ming-Chi Kuo had predicted the iPhone 12 line and now he seems to be revealing what we should expect from the 2021 models. He mentioned that this time, the ultrawide camera of the pro and pro max will be upgraded from the current f/2.4 five-element lens set up to an f/1.8 six-element lens with autofocus.
iPhone’s ultrawide Camera is Likely to Get a Huge Boost
The idea behind the iPhone’s ultrawide Camera is Likely to Get a Huge Boost is that the larger aperture should let in more light which potentially should enhance low light shots. Frankly, we are all curious to see if the autofocus and an increased number of lens elements might make it easier to take really good ultrawide pictures.
Recent observations show that Apple has been reserving the best cameras for its priciest phones. This is because the Apple iPhone 12 pro max got a larger sensor and sensor-shift optical image stabilization for its main camera and a longer telephoto lens as well. However, the Apple iPhone 12 pro max didn’t get any better ultrawide camera than any other Apple iPhone 12. According to Kuo, this is going to change next year.
Further New on the Topic
Ming-Chi Kuo in 2022 expects the new ultrawide will become standard across all the iPhone lines but there could be a new high-end camera. He has previously predicted that the 2022 Apple iPhones would feature a periscope telephoto lens like the one we first saw torn down in the Huawei P30 Pro. The use of Periscope telephoto lenses is to allow increased optical zoom by spacing out lenses inside the body of the phone and using a mirror to point them out through the back.
