Just today we await the opening of reservations for the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max, which has not prevented rumors about the next generation of iPhone from emerging again. Ming-Chi Kuo just shared some of his forecasts for the iPhone 13 of 2021, for which you already have some interesting details. Let’s see what they consist of.
Four iPhone 13s and a significant improvement in the ultra-wide sensor
According to MacRumors, Kuo hopes that the next iPhone of 2021 will also consist of four models. The name of this generation is provisional, since Apple usually bet on the suffix “s” in intermediate generations. The iPhone 12 has taken the numerical leap from the iPhone 11 because it represents a significant change in its design, both internal and external. Next year will be an iteration on this one, so it is more reasonable to expect it to be called the iPhone 12s.
Nomenclatures aside, Kuo states that the two high-end models will feature an ultra-wide-angle sensor that greatly improves. Specifically, it will be as follows:
- iPhone 12: ƒ2.4 aperture and 5-element sensor.
- iPhone 13 Pro: ƒ1.8 aperture and 6-element sensor.
The improvement of this sensor is reduced to the “Pro” models, yes, Kuo says that the next generation of iPhone will expand this lens to all models. The analyst focused on Apple’s supply chain in Asia also predicts good prospects for 2021. Increased demand due to the expansion of 5G coverage and the return of the iPhone event to September, among other things.
Leather cases for iPhone 12 arrive today: 65 euros and five colors, MagSafe Duo and others will arrive “later”
Taking rumors a year or more at a glance is risky. Many things can still be modified in Apple’s plans, especially in times like today.
