iPhone 13 to get an ultra-wide lens with variable aperture
Popular analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via a report by ITHome) has suggested that the iPhone 13 will get an improved ultra-wide lens with a variable aperture rated at f/1.8. This is bigger than the ultra-wide lens with an aperture of f/2.4 seen on the iPhone 12 Pro and the Pro Max.

With this, the iPhone 13 will get a bigger aperture on the ultra-wide lens, which will, in turn, call for more light to pass through the lens. This will improve low-light photography on the new iPhones, something we are always ready to witness on an iPhone.
However, it is also revealed that only the iPhone 13 Pro models are likely to get the functionality and the other iPhone 13 models (possibly the iPhone 13 and the 13 Mini) won’t get it. This could be extended to all the iPhone models, starting in 2022.
That said, one need not be disappointed. The non-Pro iPhone models are still expected to get the LiDAR scanners and better image stabilization, which was missing on the iPhone 12 and the 12 Mini this year.
In addition, Apple is rumored to have roped in Sunny Optical as a lens supplier for the iPhone 13 lineup. This will be in addition to other suppliers such as Largan, Yujingguang, and Kantatsu. These suppliers then supply the lens to LG Innotek for the final incorporation in the camera module.
iPhone 13 other possible features
Apart from the possible camera improvements, the iPhone 13 is expected to get tons of more upgrades. Past rumors suggest that the iPhone 13 is expected to come with a smaller notch or go for a notch-less design. The devices are also expected to see the return of Touch ID in the form of an optical in-display fingerprint scanner, a feature Android phones have had for years and would make for an intriguing addition to an iPhone.
The iPhone 13 Pro models are also expected to get storage as high as 1TB with an aim to solve all the storage issues iPhone users could be facing since there is no expandable storage. Other specs could include an upgraded A15 Bionic chipset, bigger batteries, and support for iOS 15. Additionally, this year too, the iPhone 13 is likely to get four variants: a 5.4-inch one, two 6.1-inch models, and a 6.7-inch one.
Just to clarify, we still have a scarcity of concrete information. Hence, we need to take the aforementioned with a pinch of salt and wait for more information to arrive.
