Apple’s upcoming “iPhone 13” will feature multiple new camera features aimed at professional users. The new camera features include Portrait mode for videos, ProRes for videos, and design updates resulting in a smaller notch. All of this is according to a new report by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman.
From the Bloomberg report:
The new handsets will include a video version of the phone’s Portrait mode feature, the ability to record video in a higher-quality format called ProRes, and a new filters-like system that improves the look and colors of photos, according to people familiar with the matter. The camera features are seen as some of the biggest selling points for the iPhone 12’s successor, which is expected to go on sale in the next several weeks.
A new ProRes video-recording feature will let iPhone users capture clips in a higher-quality format that gives editors more control during post-production.
The format is used by professional video editors in the film industry and isn’t normally intended for the mass market in part because of its large file sizes. ProRes will record in either HD and 4K resolutions on the next iPhones.
The iPhone 13 is expected to be available in the same four screen sizes as the current iPhone 12, including one ‘mini’ 5.4-inch size, a standard and pro 6.1-inch size, and the largest 6.7-inch pro size. The lenses of the iPhone 13 are expected to be substantially larger, indicating upcoming camera improvements.
The iPhone 13 is expected to be unveiled in early September and begin shipping later in the month.
