Apple has been bringing iPhones with ultra-wide angle cameras since 2019, and everyone had a fixed focus. This will finally change with the iPhone 13 Pro series, which gets an improved ultrawide shooter with autofocus, claims analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
In his investor note, Kuo only revealed the more powerful iPhones that have the new camera in 2021, while the non-Pro models will have to wait until 2022 when all four models get the updated ultra-wide camera.
Autofocus is better because the lens can be adjusted, resulting in sharper images in all scenarios. In fixed focus, the subject must be at the perfect distance, otherwise the phone often does not produce a desirable photo.
