- A new rumor says the iPhone 13 will get improved sensor-shift optical image stabilization across the board for its Ultra Wide lenses.
- Apple may even introduce the tech, as well as autofocus, to its front-facing cameras the following year.
The technology, currently limited to the iPhone 12 Pro Max, would make for sharper images and better stabilization.
Supply chain guru Ming-Chi Kuo has previously stated the iPhone 13 could get a new 7P Ultra-wide lens. From that report:
It was reported as far back as October that Apple plans to bring the beefier camera of the iPhone 12 Pro Max to the rest of its lineup later this year. Apple's next iPhone is expected to include 120Hz ProMotion displays, as well as an under-display fingerprint sensor.

If this is the same 12MP camera that Apple has been using since the 6s Plus, then it is NOT a "camera upgrade". Hey Apple. Stop using software gimmicks to mask the fact that your cameras suck. They are now 6 years old. PLEASE upgrade the GD camera hardware. 12MP cameras in 2021 is embarrassing.
