Apple’s iPhone12 series has an increasing number of gruesome problems(some with medical implications) but the company is seems ready to remedy these issues with the iphone 13 and now we know a lot more.
A recent video posted on youtube by popular YouTuber Filip Koray (aka EverythingApple Pro) has collaborated with influential leaker Max Weinbach to reveal multiple upgrades Apple is making with the iPhone 13. That said, one of them will be controversial.
Three major upgrades to happen. Koroy reports that Apple will introduce an automatic astrophotography mode when pointing iPhone 13 models at the sky (a popular feature in rival phones), as well as a massive upgrade to the ultra-wide camera lens with Apple giving it “the royal treatment across the entire lineup” with a new sensor and lens.
Perhaps the most exciting upgrade, however, comes with the news that “portrait video is finally happening. Apple has had this feature in the pipeline for quite some time. Now with the Apple A15, it will finally be possible. You will be able to record a portrait video… and then change the depth of field in post.”
One area which is likely to prove controversial, however, is an upgrade to MagSafe with Weinbach saying the magnets will be “getting stronger”. Koroy paints this as a positive, which is understandable given concerns that MagSafe is not strong enough in iPhone 12 models to securely hold magnetic attachments like wallets.
We were all stunned,” said Henry Ford Heart and Vascular Institute cardiologist Gurjit Singh on the findings earlier this month.
“We had assumed that the magnet[s] would be too weak in a phone to trip the defibrillator’s magnetic switch. We believe our findings have profound implications on a large scale for the people who live daily with these devices, who without thinking, will place their phone in their shirt pocket or upper pocket or their coat – not knowing that it can cause their defibrillator or pacemaker to function in a way that could potentially be lethal.”
How Apple can improve MagSafe without increasing these potentially lethal risks, is unknown at this stage.
This aside, the iPhone 13 lineup is shaping up to be a massive upgrade on its predecessors.
And it doesn’t stop there because we also know Apple is now working hard on on iPhones that fold.
