Forget the iPhone 12 – Apple's iPhone 13 could feature stunning new camera tech

Smartphone photography has come a long way since the first iPhone was unveiled in 2007, with this year's iPhone 12 Pro Max even capable of shooting incredible cinematic video in Dolby Vision. But if new leaks are to be believed, iPhone photography could be about to zoom even further ahead – quite literally. 

There are already three iPhones in our best camera phones list, but they could pale in comparison to what Apple apparently has up its sleeve. It's been rumoured for a while that Apple is planning to add a periscope lens to future iPhones (which could mean zoom capabilities of up to 50x), and a new leak suggests the company is looking to Samsung to provide the tech.
