Rumor: All iPhone 13 models will get an f/1.8 ultra-wide-angle camera

All models of the iPhone 13 series would get an ultra-wide-angle camera with a different aperture. Instead of the f/2.4 lens of the iPhone 12’s, it would be a camera with an f/1.8 lens, according to an analyst according to MacRumors.

The information comes from two Barclays analysts, MacRumors reports. The information is partly consistent with previous information from TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, but he expects only the Pro models to get the lens with changed aperture.

If the camera sensor and focal length remain the same, it means that the aperture is about a quarter larger than on current models. This allows more light to enter, which can lead to better results in less favorable lighting conditions. Most ultra-wide angle cameras on smartphones have apertures of between f/2.0 and f/2.4.

Some high-end models from other manufacturers do have significantly larger sensors. Apple uses cameras with a sensor area of ​​12 square millimeters, while Samsung uses a sensor with an area of ​​​​almost 24 square millimeters with its Galaxy S21 models. Huawei put a 50 square millimeter camera sensor behind the ultra-wide-angle lens in its P40 Pro models from last year.

Apple would also like to put the 65mm telephoto camera from the iPhone 12 Pro Max on the smaller iPhone 13 Pro, says Barclays. The non-Pro models in the iPhone 13 series would still not get a camera with a telephoto lens, the analysts say.
