To be sure, the iPhone 13 series will have some kind of camera upgrade, but we are more confident about one of them. In particular, the ultra-wide lens can accommodate more components to obtain a larger aperture and improve low-light performance.
According to the instructions, Sunny Optical (a Chinese lens manufacturer) has completed the Apple verification process for the current iPad Pro camera lens. So far, it is not interesting, but it is speculated that the company has learned so much from the process that it can provide a 7P (seven element) lens for the iPhone 13.
From five to seven
This is obviously used for ultra-wide cameras, and is taller than the five-element lens of the iPhone 12 series. So, what does the extra element do? Well, in the latest notes, Kuo seems to only mention improved performance, but he had previously suggested ultra-wide lenses with f/1.8 apertures.
On the iPhone 12 series, the aperture is f/2.4, so this change will mean a larger lens opening, allowing more light to enter to improve low-light performance.
Barclays (Barclays) analysts have also made the same statement before, although they believe that all four iPhone 13 models will get an upgraded snapshot program, and Kuo only mentioned the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
