The rumor mill about next year’s iPhone has started. An Apple insider claims that the iPhone 13 camera will consist of a total of four lenses, including two 64-megapixel cameras.
First iPhone 13 camera rumored to have surfaced
The iPhone 12 has not even been announced, but the rumor mill about its successor has already started. The anonymous Twitter account Fudge, which in the past often made correct predictions about unannounced Apple products, is kicking off. According to the insider, the camera module of the iPhone 13 will consist of four lenses:
- 64-megapixel main camera
- 40-megapixel telephoto lens that can add the bokeh effect and zoom in
- 64-megapixel anamor flange for making widescreen videos
- 40-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens for taking extra-wide photos
Furthermore, Fudge claims that Apple adds a LiDAR sensor to the iPhone 13 camera. This depth sensor can also be found on the iPad Pro 2020 and makes the Measuring app more practical and ensures better portrait photos. A LiDAR sensor can measure distances very accurately.
You use the telephoto lens to add a bokeh effect to portrait photos. The background is blurred while the subject of a photo, such as a person, is in focus. This produces a contrasting effect.
The battle around the arm
The iPhone 13, if that becomes the name of the device, will not be released until 2021 at the earliest. Although manufacturers such as Apple have been working on new products months (and sometimes years) in advance, it is quite early to spread such rumors now.
Fudge himself also knows this. The account, therefore, writes on Twitter that we should take the rumor about the iPhone 13 camera with “a good grain of salt”. That’s not unwise advice, because Apple may change its plans in the coming months if the above information is correct at all. After all, that has yet to show.
For example, Apple has never released an iPhone with such high camera resolutions. For example, the iPhone 11 has ‘only’ two 12 megapixel lenses on the back. That resolution also applies to the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, although these phones do have an extra lens.
We expect this from Apple in the coming period
The next Apple event is just around the corner: WWDC. This developer conference will take place entirely online on June 22. During WWDC 2020, Apple will present its annual software updates, with iOS 14 as an eye-catcher for the iPhone. The iPhone 12 series, which is expected to consist of three models this year, is expected to be unveiled at the keynote at the end of this year.
