Our modern smartphones are already very capable when it comes to photography. IPhones, for example, make it easy to take great shots. And the iPhone 13 could do even better.
Each new generation of smartphones has its share of new features. Apple is obviously customary of the fact. Some axes are always improved from one year to the next, in quite variable proportions. The iPhone 13 could, however, take a giant leap forward when it comes to low-light photography . Why ? How? ‘Or’ What ? Explanation.
iPhone 13 May Have Improved Ultra Wide Lens
The iPhone’s native Camera application Photo currently has a Night Mode that allows you to take brighter shots when the camera software detects that the scene is a little too dark . A significant feature compared to the use of a flash, let alone a flash like those that are integrated into our smartphones and which often offer photos of very questionable quality.

That being said, according to Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis and Thomas O’Malley, it looks like the iPhone 13’s camera has a hardware upgrade that would make the phone much better in low light. The two men say Apple could change the aperture of its ultra-wide lens from f / 2.4 to f / 1.8.
This would represent a huge leap in terms of openness. Usually, for traditional purposes, such a change in aperture is very important, and dramatically increases the price of the accessory. For those who don’t know, the aperture determines the amount of light that enters the device. A camera with a large aperture lets in more light, which greatly helps the brightness of shots in darker situations.
This means, in theory at least, that an iPhone 13 so equipped would be better equipped than its predecessor to take good shots in low light. Analysts say these changes will be reflected in all four iPhone 13 models, which contradicts the predictions of renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who recently suggested that only Pro models would benefit from the improvement.
