The latest and most persistent rumors about the cameras, specs and specs of the iPhone 13 See what the iPhone 13 needs to learn more about the rumored cost of the iPhone 13, a possible release date, and how the iPhone 13 compares to the iPhone 12. suppose. Let’s take this as an iPhone 13 wish list. And to be clear, these are rumors and leaks. Nothing is certain until Apple officially announces it.
iPhone 13 is a bigger battery The
iPhone 13 will have a bigger battery. iPhone 12 has good battery life. In use, both the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro lasted for a day without any problems. The 12 Pro lasted 15 hours 56 minutes and the iPhone 12 lasted 17 hours and 14 minutes in our battery test with looped video in airplane mode.
But it’s far from the best battery life we’ve ever seen. Galaxy S21, with its 4500 mAh battery, lasted 18 hours and 3 minutes in the same test. The Galaxy S21 Ultra and its 5,000 mAh battery lasted 22 hours and 57 minutes. And both of these phones have a high refresh rate display that can tax the battery even more.
While Apple never discloses the capacity of the batteries inside the iPhone, sites such as iFixIt, which sells kits to replace the batteries, show that the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro use 2,815 mAh batteries. The great thing is that it takes a lot of life from this tiny battery, thanks to Apple’s efficiency in its A-series processors and iOS.
Now imagine applying this efficiency to a larger physical battery. This is a rumor that I hope to be true and what the next iPhone needs. I mean, who wouldn’t want better battery life?
iPhone 13 Pro Motion screen may come The
iPad Pro has a 120 Hz refresh rate since 2017. Now this panel is an LCD, but rumors suggest that the iPhone 13 gets a high refresh rate OLED. For years many of us have missed seeing this feature on an iPhone. There are many phones at different price points with a high refresh rate, such as the OnePlus Nord N10 5G with a 90Hz display. Galaxy S21 and S21 Ultra each have a 120Hz display. Last week, Asus launched the ROG Phone 5 with a 144Hz display. And last month the RedMagic 6 phone was announced with a 165Hz display. For comparison, the iPhone 12 has a 60Hz display.
Why do you need a high refresh rate? It simply makes everything look better. Aside from this broad generalization, animations and graphics look sharper, motion blur is reduced, games look more immersive and vibrant, especially those designed for displays with high refresh rates. Consider how great 120 Hz Apple Arcade games can look.
The next iPhone needs a 120Hz display, at least the “Pro” models do. There will be another “Pro” feature that helps distinguish high-end iPhone Pro models for normal and mini version.
There may not be any ports on the
iPhone There is a constant rumor that the iPhone 13 will not have a Lightning port. Ever since Apple got rid of the headphone jack with the iPhone 7 in 2016, people have predicted that Apple will one day make a completely port-free phone. It has been claimed that Apple will release an iPhone without a port in 2021.
Apple’s launch of MagSafe charging on iPhone 12 makes it easy to imagine such a portless future. However, in its current form the MagSafe charge is 15 watts. Compare this to the 20-watt charge you have from lighting to USB-C cable and wall charger. OnePlus has a wireless charger called Warp Charge 30 that can charge at 30 watts.
Not only does the next version of MagSafe need to be more powerful to be a reasonable alternative to a physical charging cable, it also needs to resolve some data sharing that Apple’s Lightning port currently provides. Maybe Apple hopes the 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0 and U1 ultra-broadband chip will be those data sharing backups? Or maybe a MagSafe version with Lightning port dongle? Who knows?
Apple can add something to the next iPhone like the “smart connector” found on the current iPad Pro.
The USB-C port on the iPad Pro gets all the attention, while the back of the iPad has three flat metal ports. When you use it, it connects to the iPad via the iPad Pro Magic Keyboard accessory, smart connector and magnets. You can even attach a USB-C cable to the side of the Magic Keyboard to charge the iPad Pro.
Maybe “Smart MagSafe” will charge on the next iPhone? Even if this rumor is true, removing the last iPhone port is not something Apple should be doing, at least right now.
New cameras may come with the next iPhone
The biggest feature and the biggest rumors revolve around the cameras on the iPhone. And there are a number of rumors in the iPhone lineup that point to new lenses, new camera sensors, and wider adoption of sensor-based stabilization.
Currently, the iPhone 12 Pro has the same selfie, wide, and ultra-wide cameras as the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini. The Pro has a 2x telephoto camera, but not the same as 2.5x on the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The iPhone 13 Pro can get a bigger sensor for its wide camera. This rumor does not indicate whether it will be exactly the same as on the iPhone 13 Pro Max. But the larger sensor may include sensor-based stabilization, which is currently only available on the iPhone 12 Pro Max model.
The iPhone 13 Pro is also said to get the same or similar telephoto camera as the 13 Pro Max. All this means that the next regular “Pro” model will be closer to the Pro Max model. This year, the 12 and 12 Pro are extremely similar.
There are several rumors about a new ultra-wide camera on the iPhone 13 or iPhone 14. (Yes, there are already rumors about the next iPhone!) The ultra-wide camera on 13 could have better low-light performance and faster speed. diaphragm lens. Currently the lens on ultrawide is f2.4, but the new lens could be f1.8, and this can definitely help improve low light performance.
In terms of camera hardware, the iPhone 13, especially the regular Pro model, could use upgrades according to these rumors.
Touch ID can turn to
iPhone iPhone 13 can get a fingerprint reader at the bottom of the screen. Ever since the first Android phone was launched with an in-display fingerprint reader, people predicted that a Touch ID sensor at the bottom of the screen would be a way to alleviate the frustration some had experienced when using Face ID, and that was before the pandemic made face masks.
There are currently two types of in-display fingerprint sensors on Android phones. There are optical in-display sensors found in phones such as the OnePlus 8T and Motorola Edge Plus. Also, phones like the Galaxy S21 series have ultrasonic fingerprint readers by Qualcomm.
If the iPhone 13 gets an in-display fingerprint reader, it’s unclear whether this will replace Face ID or an addition to it. The rumor also suggests that with Apple’s 2019 patent demonstration, the iPhone can be unlocked with a fingerprint touch anywhere on the screen instead of the single sensor location on Android phones.
If Apple could bring the ultrasonic sensors to a point of reliability, ease of use and reliability like the old-school Touch ID sensor found in the iPhone SE, it wouldn’t be hard to imagine them on an iPhone. If Touch ID is paired with Face ID, you may have more ways to secure and access your phone. Having an alternative biometric security measure is something the iPhone needs.
The iPhone 13 can capture videos in portrait mode
The next iPhone can record videos in portrait mode. You may be familiar with portrait mode, which allows you to take a photo and give the picture a blurred background to the artist. The idea is that it replicates what a larger sensor mirrorless or DSLR camera can do with a fast aperture lens. Portrait mode on iPhone is limited to photos only. But there are currently a few Android phones like the Samsung Galaxy series that can record video in portrait mode (or live focus video) and blur the background while leaving your subject in focus.
Considering what Apple can do with video in portrait mode and how it takes all the actions needed to separate the foreground and blur the background artistically, the exciting rumor also points to its ability to change the amount of background that blur the depth of field after the video is captured. It would be especially cool if it includes Apple’s portrait lighting looks and the ability to change them after reality.
The iPhone 13 could
get better at astrophotography The iPhone 13 could have a better astrophotography mode. You can currently mount the iPhone on a tripod and extend the night mode footage up to 30 seconds in the darkest conditions. With the right sky and weather conditions, you can take a decent photo of the starry sky. But when you see what the Google Pixel can do in terms of astrophotography, it leaves much to be desired on the iPhone.
If this rumor is true, maybe astrophotography is still active in night mode, but you can extend the time by more than 30 seconds or use computational photography to capture a better night sky or moon. This could be another feature that only lives on “Pro” models, as Apple ProRaw currently does. This isn’t an absolutely essential feature, but it’s a nice feature to have.
