Newly leaked images of the iPhone 13 indicate that it includes a larger rear camera protrusion with lenses placed diagonally, allowing users to take better wide-angle and magnified photos.
Screenshots of the fake units of the phones were posted on the Chinese social networking site Weibo. One of the models had a diagonal lens. The previous models were arranged vertically.
As with previous versions, the images show a somewhat smaller bump.
Reports indicate that Apple was able to reduce the size of the TrueDepth camera system used in FaceID, in addition to moving the earpiece to the top edge of the phone.

Other claims about the upcoming iPhone, expected in the fall, include a slightly larger rear camera bump, a 2.5x telephoto zoom, and an upgrade to the ultra-wide lens.
Reports stated that the iPhone 13 camera has an aperture of f1.8, lower than the f2.4 of the iPhone 12.

A lower aperture means more light gets in, resulting in dynamic images and better depth of field, and it’s also useful for shooting in low-light conditions, such as at night.
The improvements could include all four rumored models, namely the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The lenses also include autofocus and OIS, which helps counteract shake. It is uncertain whether the same technology reaches the front camera or not.

And the OIS feature appeared with the telephoto lens of the iPhone 12 Pro Max. But with the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, the OIS feature is present within the wide and ultra-wide lenses.

For a thicker protrusion, it allows the lenses to remain aligned with the surface, rather than protruding as they currently do.
While this may be purely for aesthetic reasons, it may be in part to allow for a wider aperture and the addition of OIS. There is also a Portrait mode for video and an Astrophotography mode for capturing the night sky.

Given that Apple hasn’t officially shared any specifications, everything about the upcoming iPhone remains speculation, including the name.
And theHe said Leaker John Prosser said in January that Apple will likely call the new phone the iPhone 12s.
In the past, Apple released the iPhone 4s after the iPhone 4, and did the same with the iPhone 5 and iPhone 6. It has since discontinued this.
