What you need to know
- Leaked iPhone 13 schematics could show the device will have much bigger camera lenses.
- The information from EverythingApplePro seems to suggest the camera module will be larger and a perfect square.
- They also suggest the lenses of the iPhone 13 Pro Max will be significantly larger.
In his latest video EverythingApplePro shows off CAD drawings of both the iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 mini.
According to the video, Apple is planning to make the camera module (the square on the back that holds all the lenses) larger on all models, with dimensions that will make it almost a perfect square. On the iPhone 13 Pro Max, the module will also stick out a tiny bit more (less than 1mm), increasing the thickness of the iPhone by just one-quarter of a millimeter. The lenses of the iPhone 13 Pro Max are also reportedly set to get visibly larger to incorporate more advanced technology such as bigger sensors.
EAP's renders also seem to reiterate previous leaks from earlier this week which suggest the iPhone 13 mini will likely see a reshuffled rear camera housing with a diagonal configuration, rather than two cameras vertically arranged as they are on the iPhone 12 mini.
The iPhone 13 Pro is also set to get a larger camera module that will again stick out more compared to the bump in the iPhone 12.
With the iPhone 13 expected to a subtle 'S' upgrade, a report earlier this week indicated the big change in the iPhone camera could in fact come next year, Ming-Chi Kuo earlier this week reporting that Apple is planning to adopt a 48MP camera that can shoot 8K video in its 'Pro' models next year. Kuo also said the iPhone 13 mini will be the last 'mini' iPhone, and that Apple will release two 6.1-inch models next year instead.
