Thank you for posting these. This is exactly what I saw in my 13P test shots - a slight softness. So we can rule out this being due to a defective phone, it’s just the way the 13P is.

Sure no problem, though it's a shame if this is just how the camera is.  I was hoping I got a defective model.

Maybe the aperture has gotten too large?  With standalone cameras, stopping down the lens usually improves sharpness across the frame, but unfortunately you can't do anything about the aperture on an iPhone.  Even great cameras like the Fuji X100 series tend to be soft when shot wide open, so I imagine designing an f1.5 lens on such a small scale would be a challenge.

If there is anyone following this thread who plans on getting the iPhone 13 regular or 13 mini, I'd be curious to hear your experiences since those phones use the wide lens/sensor from last year's 12 Pro Max.
