iPhone 13 Pro Max is Using New Custom Sensors From Sony in Triple Camera System, Here are the Detailed Specs

Let's take a look at more details on the iPhone 13 Pro Max camera sensors.


Apple launched the iPhone 13 series earlier this month. The new iPhones come with some improved internals and upgraded cameras. While the 2021 iPhone models continue to feature a 12MP camera setup, Apple has made improvements that go beyond the spec-sheet. The company, at the launch event, said that the new iPhones come with newer sensors. Apple also said that the sensor size is bigger than previous iPhone models, resulting in more light capture and better details. That being said, Apple did not get into the technical details of the iPhone 13 series camera sensors. A new report has now revealed the details of the camera sensors found on the top-end iPhone 13 Pro Max model. 

According to GSMArena, citing a Weibo post, the iPhone 13 Pro Max features Sony sensors. The report states that all three 12MP sensors on the iPhone 13 Pro Max have a Sony 7-series lens. On the other hand, the ToF sensor and the front camera sensor are the same ones found on the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

The main 12MP camera, which has an f/1.5 aperture and a 26mm focal length, uses a Sony IMX703 sensor. It has a 1.9 μm pixel size and comes with support for sensor-shift optical image stabilisation (OIS). The 12MP ultrawide camera on the Pro Max model has a 13mm focal length and features a 6P lens. Apple has used Sony’s IMX772 sensor for the 12MP ultrawide camera on the iPhone 13 Pro Max. This same camera comes with support for autofocus as well.

The 12MP telephoto camera with 3x zoom and sensor-shift OIS uses the Sony IMX713 sensor. It comes with an f/2.8 aperture and has a 6P lens. The ToF sensor used on the Pro series is a Sony IMX590, which was found on the predecessor models as well. Lastly, the 12MP front camera on the iPhone 13 Pro Max has a Sony IMX514 sensor.

The new iPhone models also come with improved battery life and a faster performance unit. The Pro models this year also got a 120Hz ProMotion display that switches the refresh rate between 10Hz and 120Hz depending on the type of content on the screen.
