Tech giant Apple is working on the next iPhone lineup. The iPhone 13 series will be launched in September later this year. The iPhone 13 models are likely to feature a new sensor specially designed for camera stabilization. The company is said to be already working on bringing the technology. The technology is not new for iPhone. Apple had introduced the technology first in one of the models of the iPhone 12 lineup. The iPhone 12 Pro Max featured sensor-shift optical image stabilization. The company is now planning to bring it to all iPhone 13 models. The technology works by stabilizing the sensor of the camera and not the lens.
The technology was earlier only available on DSLR cameras. But Apple adapted it for the iPhone on the wide lens of the Pro Max model of the iPhone 12 line up. Apple’s decision to introduce it to all the upcoming models of the next-gen series is significant. It will offer more stable content to users. Meanwhile, Apple is also planning to launch D-ToF technology. This technology is gaining popularity in recent times. It works by measuring the distance as the camera illuminates an object with a modulated light source. In other words, the technology can detect objects’ absolute position and shape in 3D.
Reports say that iPhone 13 will mirror the iPhone 12 line up phones. The company is likely to launch four models. The iPhone 13 Mini will feature a 5.4-inch display. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro will come with a 6.1-inch display. The fourth model which will be iPhone Pro Max will sport a 6.7-inch display. Apple will introduce the sensor-shift stabilization technology to all four models. Reports claim that Samsung will be the only supplier of OLED panels for the two top models. The smartphones are also likely to be equipped with LiDAR sensors. The sensors first appeared in the iPad Pro released in March 2020. It works by improving Augmented Reality experiences.
