According to an article preview published today by DigiTimes, the entire iPhone 13 family will feature sensor-shift optical image stabilization (OIS). Currently, only the iPhone 12 Pro Max offers sensor-shift OIS.
“Apple’s next-generation iPhones slated for launch in the second half of 2021 will all come with sensor-shift stabilization technology, according to industry sources,” the story preview reads.
Korean publication ETNews shared a similar report earlier this week claiming that at least two iPhone 13 models will be equipped with sensor-shift stabilization, with LG Innotek expected to remain the supplier of the necessary components.
Apple first introduced sensor-shift stabilization on the Wide lens of the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
MacDailyNews Take: Apple equipped iPhone 12 Pro Max with a larger Wide sensor with bigger pixels to gather more light, for more detail and color in your photos. And the company engineered a stabilizing solution that moves just the sensor, keeping it even steadier than before. That’s sensor-shift OIS, and it’s a game changer.
Until now, sensor‑shift optical image stabilization was only on DSLR cameras. This is the first time it’s been adapted for iPhone. Owners of Apple’s flagship iPhone 12 Pro Max get more precise stabilization than ever.
