Apple’s latest phone, the iPhone 12, debuted in October 2020, but rumors about the iPhone 13 have already started to circulate. Although the iPhone 12 represented a big change in the series with a new design, improved cameras and more, the iPhone 13 could be even more fascinating with notable improvements in its specifications. We tell you everything we know so far about the iPhone 13.
IPhone 13 design
The iPhone 12 series brought major design changes, taking inspiration from the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5. Because of that, we don’t expect as many changes to the overall design and appearance of the iPhone 13, but we could still see some tweaks. First of all, rumors indicate that at some point in the future, Apple will introduce a port less iPhone design. Many see the Mag-Safe charger, which the company launched alongside the iPhone 12, as the first step towards that reality, but whether or not it arrives with the iPhone 13 is something that is still up for debate.
Another persistent rumor is that the iPhone will have a smaller notch. Some say that Apple wanted to include this feature in the iPhone 12 as part of the new design, but were unable to do so. Last but not least, the iPhone 13 could bring back the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
IPhone 13 screen
Apple finally included OLED technology in the displays of the iPhone 12 series and as a result the screen experience on all of those models is more or less the same. However, in 2021, Apple could give the iPhone 13 models a different upgrade, in the form of a 120 Hz refresh rate. Rumors about iPhone with a high refresh rate have been circulating for years, and at one point many thought that would come with the iPhone 12.
From now on, Apple will include LTPO technology in the iphone 13 models, which would pave the way for a high refresh rate. The always-on screen will look like a “dimmed lock screen” that will always show the time and battery level. Notifications will also appear, but apparently only part of the screen would light up to show the notification.
IPhone 13 cameras
The iPhone 12 didn’t get as big of a camera upgrade compared to the iPhone 11 series, but it still represented a step further, especially when it comes to the larger sensors and sensor shift stabilization technology. Hopefully, that technology will hit low-end iPhone in 2021 – at least the rumors back that up.
A rumor says that all iPhone 13 devices will receive the same sensors as the iPhone 12 Pro Max. However, another rumor suggests a different update. According to a note, all four iPhone 13 models will get an ultra-wide camera with an aperture of f / 1.8. However, some says that only the iPhone 13 Pro models will get the widest aperture.
Something that never introduced before
The iPhone 13 will focus more on astrophotography. The iPhone will be able to capture video in portrait mode. Other rumors indicate that Apple could include a Li-DAR sensor in all four iPhone 13 models, which should help make autofocus faster in low-light conditions, as well as play a role in the augmented reality technology of the future.
IPhone 13 Specifications
There are not many rumors about the specifications of the iPhone 13, but some aspects can be assumed. Some of the iPhone 13 prototypes offer 1 TB of storage, which is twice the maximum capacity of the iPhone 12. There are other assumptions that can be made about the specifications of the iPhone 13. The iPhone 13 will probably make use of a new A15 chip from Apple, which is expected to maintain the 5nm process. Apple is investing billions in chip manufacturing.
