Apple wants to save money on iPhone 13 cameras

A new Elec report reveals that Apple is looking to cut back on camera production for future iPhones. Savings do not lie in the use of low-quality materials, but in a different method of production.

Previously, Apple purchased already assembled camera modules from its suppliers: LG InnoTek, Sharp and O’Film. Now the company wants to buy individual components and outsource lens assembly to Foxconn. Such a measure should reduce the cost of lenses.

In order to ensure a quality assembly of the components, the factory has already received special equipment to check the alignment of the lenses. It is likely that the iPhone 13 cameras will be assembled using the new “economical” technology, although some sources report that the mass production of new items has already started.

It’s not clear if this is good for users. On the one hand, the new iPhone may become cheaper (conditionally). On the other hand, there is a risk that the quality of the lenses may suffer.
