Early rumors have suggested that the ultra-wide angle lens on the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max will see and increase from the iPhone 12 model, and include a larger sensor. The aperture of the ultra-wide lens will allegedly increase from ƒ/2.4 to f/1.8. This and the larger sensor would increase image quality by allowing more light collection. It is unknown at this time which of the three cameras will gain a larger sensor, if rumors are true.
The iPhone Pro model is also expected to gain sensor-shift stabilization. Other reports have alleged that Apple is working on periscope lens technology, but it is unknown if it will be worked out in time for the next-generation release. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes at least one model will be equipped with a periscope telephoto lens by 2022.
