Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst, released an investor to predict how the cameras will turn out in the 2021 series lineup. 

The new iPhone 13 series will be named as iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, which will have ultra-wide cameras with some specific improvements. These two phones will have f/1.8, 6P (six-element lens) with autofocus instead of f/2.4, 5P (five-element lens) ultra-wide cameras with a fixed focus which can be seen in the present 12 series.

While the 2021 series will have an improved camera facility, the 2022 series which will launch probably under 14 series will have improved technology.

The iPhone 13 models are expected to see an increase in shipments due to better 5G infrastructure in H2 2021 and the improved ultra-wide cameras. If Kuo's predictions are right, then next year there will be an iPhone 13 mini.

Largan will be the biggest supplier of VCM (Voice Coil Motors) for the ultra-wide cameras. The company has received only 50 per cent ultra-wide-angle camera orders of the iPhone 12 series which launched this year.
