Rumors are spreading about the iPhone 13. Here is everything we hear in one place
The iPhone 13 (or will the iPhone 12S?) Is expected to receive a mid September release date and its lineup is said to include four models – the iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Mini, the iPhone 13 Pro, and the iPhone 13 Pro – the Max iPhone 12 lineup, analyst Ming-Chi According to Kuo. Just this week, a 3D printed fake mock-up of the iPhone 13 was leaked by Japanese blog Macotakara, which showed a thinned notch and some changes to the front camera.
Even before the last Apple event that introduced the iPhone 12, rumors were circulating about Apple’s 2021 phone lineup. And leaks will only increase as we approach the next iPhone release date (by the way, there is another Apple event that is said to be very soon). Read on to find the latest rumors about the iPhone 13’s price, design, specs, camera features, and more.
Release date: iPhone could be mid-September 13th
So far, there’s no official or unofficial word about when we can expect to see Apple’s next iPhone. Usually, we can predict with some accuracy when Apple’s iPhone events will occur and predict a release date accordingly. 2020 was the first September Apple event to take place in eight years without an iPhone, thanks to production delays due to the coronavirus outbreak. This year, however, Kuo predicts that there will be jobs for Apple’s supply chain as usual. If that’s the case, we can expect to see the iPhone 13 at an event in September.
Apple likes to organize its events on Tuesday or Wednesday.
iPhone release dates are usually one and a half weeks after Apple’s announcements.
Generally, new iPhones launch on a Friday in the third week of September.
iPhone 12S is a worthy guess for the name of Apple’s next-generation iPhones. Just like the iPhone 6 of 2014, 2015’s iPhone 6S and 2017’s iPhone X 2018 will be positioned as a possible development like the 2021 iPhone, without a significant redesign in the works of the iPhone XS (more below), the iPhone 12.
Or maybe Apple takes a page out of Samsung’s book and names its next phone after the year it was made: the iPhone 2021 has a nice ring. Or what about iPhone XXI? Or, if you dare to imagine it, Apple could go in a completely different direction and give it a fun name like the Motorola Citrus or the old LG Chocolate.
The iPhone 13
has not yet leaked renderings or grainy videos other than the 3D printed model of Macotakara, which will likely be familiar , but considering the comeback of 2020 saw a rather significant “sheet-shaped” redesign, it would be a major hit in the design of the iPhone in 2021. we do not expect any change. between the flat side of the iPhone 5. Apple is also not expected to make any changes in the size of the phone compared to the previous generation.
iPhone 13 rumored dimensions:
iPhone 13 Mini: 5.4 inch
iPhone 13: 6.1 inch
iPhone 13 Pro: 6.1 inch
iPhone 13 Pro Max: 6.7 inch
On the leaked dummy model, Macotakara said that the notch of the iPhone 13 could shrink to 26.8mm wide (compared to 34.83mm on the iPhone 12) and 5.35mm compared to the 5.3mm notch on the iPhone 12 a bit than usual. He predicted it might become taller. height.
He predicts that the 2021 iPhone will be completely port-free, possibly the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Cameras: New photography tricks and technology coming to iPhone 13 The iPhone
received camera updates that were pretty well received in 2020, especially the Pro Max model, which introduced the iOS crowd to lidar (also available on Pro) and ProRaw.
The iPhone 13 could potentially include a periscope camera, a technology that allows a wider zoom range without requiring a larger camera pulse.
Improved night mode photos
f1.8 instead of f2.4. The larger aperture means more light can hit the sensor, resulting in better pictures at night or in low light conditions.
All four models of the iPhone 13 series can include lidar technology. Lidar was introduced to the iPhone in 2020, but only on Pro and Pro Max models, so this will only be a real upgrade for the base model and Mini. Still, lidar will be pretty stylish for everyone – the camera feature that stands for “light detection and range” is a depth sensor that uses lasers to measure distance. The camera trick can take your iPhone photos to the next level and it also has some pretty cool AR apps.
Features: All the other iPhone 13 rumors we’ve heard
There’s a lot we can confidently predict for the 2021 iPhone lineup, based on last year’s specs and Apple’s usual past performance. For example, 5G is a completely unknown result. There probably won’t be a charger or headphone, a headphone jack, or a USB-C port in the box. And unless 2021 puts us in an even bigger loop than 2020, we expect Apple to preview iOS 15 at its annual WWDC event in June and ship the iPhone 13 with the new operating system installed.
120 Hz refresh rate for the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max We
thought we would get a renewed refresh rate on the iPhone 12, but the 120Hz rumors did not come to fruition, possibly due to increased battery demands from the phone’s 5G connection. Instead, Apple’s lineup last year featured the same 60Hz display as the previous year’s iPhone 11.
But 2021 could be the year of the 120Hz display, which could result in a smoother, faster scrolling experience thanks to the higher screen refresh rate. Many high-end competitors already have 120Hz displays (for example, OnePlus 8T and Galaxy S21), so the odds make up a good Apple head in this direction for the next Pro series.
Korean news website The Elec reports coming from evidence for doubling the refresh rate in 2021, two of the iPhone 13 models will use LTPO technology on their displays (within the story in Spanish). This screen technology will make the phone more energy efficient overall, so smaller batteries and / or longer battery life are also possible (not to mention those whispers about an always-on display). Learn more about LTPO or low temperature polycrystalline oxide, OLED displays. This rumor was echoed on YouTube in mid-February by the well-known leaker Max Weinbach.
Like the always-on screen
Apple Watch (and Android phones), the iPhone 13 may have its own version of the always-on display, which Weinbach calls the “softened lock screen”. If the rumors are true, your next iPhone will always display the clock and battery charge and incoming notifications without you having to unlock or wake the entire screen.
The return of the Touch ID button
Bloomberg reported that in 2019, the beloved Touch ID button could return as an under-display sensor on next year’s flagship, which will become the iPhone 12. That didn’t happen, but the Bloomberg report left room for error by saying the technology. “May shift to 2021 iPhone refresh.”
