More Apple iPhone 13 series details emerge; camera housing compared to the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is planning to bring autofocus to another camera sensor on this year's iPhone 13 series. Apparently, autofocus will be available on the ultra-wide-angle cameras of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, which should help minimise focusing errors on the two devices. Until now, Apple has used a fixed-focus lens for its ultra-wide-angle cameras.
Presumably, Apple will bring the functionality to more iPhones as of the iPhone 14 series. Incidentally, a leaker on Weibo has provided comparisons between the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 series' camera housings. As the photos below show, the iPhone 13 Pro will have a substantially larger camera housing than the one that the iPhone 12 Pro has. By contrast, the housing has only grown slightly between the iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
However, Apple has reputedly engineered the entire iPhone 13 series to support higher wattage MagSafe charging. Supposedly, the iPhone 13 series has larger wireless charging coils than their predecessors, which will also provide reverse wireless charging, a feature that has already become popular among flagship Android smartphones. Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 13 series in September, although it could arrive as the iPhone 12s series.
