The next series will reportedly include iPhone 13 alongside iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max
iPhone 13 Pro models will reportedly support a 120Hz refresh rate
Apple could also retain the USB Type-C port at the bottom
Apple is anticipated to launch iPhone 13 series next month and therefore the upcoming flagship series is rumored to incorporate vanilla iPhone 13 alongside iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max, almost like the prevailing iPhone 12 lineup. For a couple of years, Apple has been refreshing its iPhone lineup in September, though the launch of the iPhone 12 series was delayed by a month last year due to the COVID-19 crisis. The upcoming series has been a neighborhood of the gossip mill for a long time, and here’s everything we all know about the phones thus far.
Starting with the planning, the regular iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini will reportedly feature equivalent dual cameras at the rear, and therefore the Pro models are said to incorporate triple cameras. The dummy units of the phones showed a bigger sensor and therefore the placement of the twin cameras on the regular models diagonally. The camera module on the regular models includes a laser sensor and LED flash. On the opposite hand, the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max might include a LiDAR sensor, almost like the prevailing pro models. Notably, the notch on the front is claimed to shrink on all iPhone 13 phones, and therefore the Pro models will reportedly support a 120Hz refresh rate, which already features iPad Pro (2020 and 2021) models as “Pro display.” Recently, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman stated that next-gen iPhones would support a faster A15 Bionic chipset and Always-On Display (AOD) model seen on the Apple Watch. to realize AOD and 120Hz refresh rate without affecting the battery, Apple may use power-efficient LTPO displays. Apple could also retain the USB Type-C port at rock bottom rather than the Lightning port for faster-charging speeds.
Other rumored features include faster 5G connectivity support, Wi-Fi 6E, two new color options (Pearl, Sunset Gold), wireless charging, portrait mode for video, and an improved fisheye lens with auto-focus. Gurman also reports that Apple has tasked suppliers with building up to 90 million new iPhones for this fall, which may be a 20 percent increase over the 75 million units Apple planned for the iPhone 12 series in 2020. The iPhone 13 series launch is claimed to take place within the third week of September.
