The thickness of the new iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro models is expected to be 7.57mm, which is higher than the 7.4mm of the iPhone 12 model. However, the increase of 0.17 mm is not obvious to most people.
The camera lens changes of the new iPhone may be more obvious. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro will have thicker camera modules, with the iPhone 13 Pro changing the most. The camera module of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro is between 1.5 mm and 1.7 mm, while the camera module of the iPhone 13 is thicker at 2.51 mm. At the same time, the iPhone 13 Pro will be equipped with a 3.65 mm thick camera module.
The raised part of the camera is getting thicker and thicker, partly to prevent the iPhone 13 lens from being too protruding. Unlike the protruding single-lens we saw on the iPhone 12 model, the iPhone 13 series has a more prominent camera protruding part and the lens position is closer to flush, similar to the design of the iPad Pro 2020.
In addition, Apple also changed the overall size of the camera module, this change is most obvious on the iPhone 13Pro. The camera module size of iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro is approximately 28mm×30mm, while the camera module size of iPhone 13 is approximately 29mm×29mm, which is closer to a square and is about 1 mm from the top of the iPhone.
iPhone 13 Pro is expected to have a larger camera module with a size of approximately 36mm×37mm, which is more similar to the iPhone 13 Pro Max. The news suggests that we will indeed see improvements in the camera.
If it is not an ordinary iPhone 13 model, the sensor displacement image stabilization function will at least be extended in the iPhone 13Pro series products to improve low-light performance and stability. The sensor displacement image stabilization function is limited to the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
