All of Apple’s new smartphones will get a camera feature that is found only in premium phones. This is reported by Digitimes.
Media sources said that iPhone component manufacturers have planned to increase the supply starting from the end of July. In particular, Apple’s partners will increase the production of voice coil motors (voice coil motors, VCM), which is used in the cameras of the most expensive smartphones of the American company. VCM consists of a magnet and coil, which provides an optical image stabilization system by shifting the sensor.
The named feature appeared in the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, the base flagships – iPhone 12 and 12 mini – do not have such a function. According to Apple, the sensor shift improves optical camera stabilization and the quality of photos and videos taken on the go.
VCM makers have planned to increase production by 30 to 40 percent. This could signal both the start of assembly of Apple’s new smartphones, and that all iPhone 13 models will get the sensor shift feature.
The main suppliers of the VCM component for Apple are Japanese companies Mitsumi and Alps. Shipments of the voice coil motors will grow until at least November.
Apple is expected to unveil four smartphones in the fall — the iPhone 13, 13 mini, 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max. According to Wedbush sources, the American IT giant’s 2021 flagships will be released exactly on time – the presentation will take place in September.
