Apple’s 2021 iPhones Could Feature These Camera, Display and 5G Improvements

Less than a month after Apple  (AAPL) – Get Report officially revealed its iPhone 12 line, an analyst with a fairly good track record of predicting Apple’s moves is out with a new report about what he expects the company’s 2021 iPhone lineup will look like.

TF Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo says that — as is the case for the iPhone 12 line — Apple’s 2021 iPhone line will contain four models, with display sizes unchanged relative to comparable iPhone models. That would spell the launch of a 5.4-inch “Mini” iPhone, a 6.1-inch standard iPhone, and 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch “Pro” and “Pro Max” iPhones.

In addition, whereas the iPhone 12 line features an overhauled wide-angle (26mm) camera, Kuo says next year’s iPhones will contain an overhauled ultra-wide-angle (13mm) camera.

The ultra-wide camera will reportedly go from using a 5-element lens and having an f/2.4 aperture, to using a 6-element lens and having a larger f/1.8 aperture (better for low-light shots). Also, Kuo expects the camera to go from having a fixed focus to an autofocus system, which would allow it to focus on an object picked up by the camera’s lens, either automatically or with a user’s assistance.
