This means that Apple will stop manufacturing the 5.4-inch iPhone mini starting next year, knowing that the iPhone 13 mini is coming in 2021, but it is expected that it will be manufactured in smaller quantities. Apple has had to reduce orders for the iPhone 12 mini because it is not receiving much attention.
The iPhone collection for 2022 will feature two 6.1- and 6.7-inch iPhones and two 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhones as well.
Reportedly, these iPhone Pro devices are expected to feature a new 48MP main camera, which can produce 12MP photos with a large pixel area of 2.5μm. It is worth noting that the main camera of the current iPhone 12 produces 12-megapixel photos with a distance of 1.7 μm.
Kuo predicts that the iPhone 13 will retain a resolution of 12 megapixels, but it will make the pixel size up to 2.0 micrometers thanks to the slight increase in the size of the sensor.
Moreover, it is expected that the iPhone 14 group for 2022 will provide support for shooting 8K videos.
As for the recent rumors about the presence of a Periscope camera with the iPhone, we will likely see that in 2023 with the Pro version, and Kuo also believes that Apple will introduce Face ID technology under the screen in 2023.
It is also expected that Apple will reduce the size of the Face ID bump this year by about 10%.
Finally, Kuo says that Apple’s virtual reality headset can house up to 15 cameras on the outside and the inside. The reason for this is to measure the position of the person wearing the glasses in the outside world and monitor his movements, as well as monitor the movement of his eyes. This would allow Apple’s virtual reality glasses to use a technique called stylized rendering – that is, displaying the area that a person is looking at rather than the entire field of view.
