IPhone cameras have managed to be placed every year among the best in the industry not only for its technical characteristics, but also for its ease of use. Thanks to Apple’s great combination of hardware and software, taking great photos with an iPhone is a matter of seconds.
With each new generation, Apple adds new features, which aren’t just limited to goals. From the image processor to the neural engine of the iPhone SoC, everything is important to improve the quality of every photograph. It is all of these elements that keep the experience simple
So it looks like we’ll have to wait a few more generations before we can see what Apple is going to do with the lenses. And, according to a recent report by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will continue to use seven-element lenses similar to those already included, both in the 2021 and 2022 models.
Of course, this could only affect the main camera, i.e. wide angle. Ultra wide angle and telephoto could receive significant changes in these upcoming reviews. For example, according to 9to5Mac, this year on the iPhone 13 we could find a telephoto lens with an aperture of f / 1.8. In addition, the number of lens elements would drop from five to six.
When it comes to ultra wide angle, there could be something new as well. For example, we talk about inclusion of autofocus
In short, and while the wide angle of the iPhone could be limited to improvements in treatment, we shouldn’t have to worry about camera news for years to come. Of course, the big jumps might take a little longer to arrive.
