A major event in technology, the iPhone’s yearly update is one of the most anticipated every year: it’s the phone that many people want to buy, the phone that sets trends, and the phone that everyone else is trying to outdo.
While leaks and speculations are nothing new in the world of technology, obtaining knowledge regarding unreleased Apple products is a relatively uncommon occurrence in the world of technology. Although they don’t leak as extensively as a Samsung or Google phone, we’re compiling everything we’ve heard so far about the iPhone models for 2021 right here for your convenience.
1.When and how much will the Apple iPhone 13 cost?
Apple’s iPhone event is usually held in the second week of September, on a Tuesday, to coincide with the release of the iPhone 6. If the year 2020 had been a normal year, the iPhone 12 would almost certainly have been launched on September 8, 2020, according to predictions.
Due to the current global scenario, 2020 was, without a doubt, a unique year in many ways. It was instead on October 13 that Apple unveiled the iPhone 12 series, breaking with tradition and making it more difficult to predict when Apple would unveil the iPhone 13 (or iPhone 14).
If the pattern returns to normal for 2021, as has been predicted, the iPhone 13 event may take place on September 7, according to reports. According to reports, availability may begin as early as the third week of September. Of course, nothing has been verified as of yet, and nothing will be confirmed until at least the end of August 2021.
In terms of pricing, we anticipate that the iPhone 13 series will begin around the same level as the iPhone 12 series.
2.What will the iPhone 2021 be called?
- iPhone 13/14 mini
- iPhone 13/14
- iPhone 13/14 Pro
- iPhone 13/14 Pro Max
Prior to 2017, it was very straightforward to guess what the next iPhone will be named. Apple utilized consecutive numbers from the iPhone 3G all the way up to the iPhone 8, and that was the end of it.
Given that the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max were all released in 2020, it’s safe to assume that the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max will be released in 2021, assuming there are four iPhones again – there may not be a mini, according to rumors – if there are four iPhones again.
However, since the number 13 is often linked with bad luck, it’s possible that Apple may omit the number 13 altogether and instead rename 2021 iPhones the iPhone 14 small, iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max instead. There has also been speculation about the iPhone 12S, so the final name is still up in the air for the time being.
borders that are more square
The Apple iPhone 12 versions were released with a new design that was more in line with the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 than the previous generations. Since a result, it is probable that the iPhone 13 models will retain their current appearance, as a design update after two years would be uncommon.
Our hopes are that the top of the screen on the 2021 versions will have a smaller notch than the current models – as has been indicated in several rumors – or that there will be no notch at all.
A patent application for a phone with no notch has already been submitted, but how Face ID would be handled on such a device remains a mystery. It has also been reported that a notch-less smartphone would not be available until 2023.
Additionally, according to other rumors surrounding the design, a matte black or bronze finish, as well as a coating on the stainless steel frame of the Pro variant, are all possible options for the device’s exterior. There have also been reports that the new versions are thicker, although, in fact, it’s doubtful that you’d detect a difference between them.
OLED 120Hz refresh rate displays that are always on
Due to the fact that all of the iPhone 12 models have OLED displays, it seems probable that all of the iPhone 13 models will feature OLED displays as well.
There were rumors of a variable refresh rate for the iPhone 12 models, with a 120Hz refresh rate that could be reduced to 60Hz when required. However, this never materialized, so it’s possible that we’ll see it on the models released in 2021. Samsung is reported to be manufacturing LTPO screens for the Pro versions – and production is supposed to have begun – thus it’s conceivable that the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max may feature variable refresh rates of 120Hz.
A 5.4-inch model, two 6.1-inch versions, and a 6.7-inch model are all available in the iPhone 12 series, as well as other sizes. Because the display sizes are changing for 2020, we expect them to remain the same for 2021, but anything is possible.
Some rumors also claimed that the iPhone 12 models will have fingerprint sensors embedded in their displays. Due to the fact that this did not appear, it is possible that this may be something that the iPhone 13 models will seek to include with Face ID. Another possibility is an always-on display, with symbols such as the clock and battery remaining visible even when the screen is locked, as well as notification bars that faintly illuminate when a notice is received rather than the whole screen when a notification arrives.
- Pro models likely to be better
- Improvements likely
- Astrophotography mode?
There aren’t many rumors about the cameras on the iPhone 13 models right now, but we believe Apple will continue with providing a superior camera system on the iPhone 13 Pro models for the time being. We’re hopeful that the regular iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will be able to provide the same functionality in the future.
There have been rumors that all models in the iPhone 13 lineup would be equipped with sensor-shift image stabilization, which is presently available on the iPhone 12 Pro Max. This would be fantastic to see implemented across the board. There has also been speculation about an upgraded ultra-wide sensor, with all four models moving to a lens with an f/1.8 aperture, rather than the f/2.4 aperture offered on the iPhone 12 models. However, it has also been suggested that only the Pro models will receive the upgrade and that this upgrade will include autofocus.
The iPhone 13 Pro Max variant is also expected to have a primary sensor with an aperture of f/1.5.
Additionally, reports have surfaced of an automated astrophotography mode that activates when the stars or moon are spotted when taking a picture, as well as rumors of a redesign to allow for a smaller protrusion on the Pro versions.
It has been reported that the camera housings on the iPhone 13 models would be thicker in order to provide a more smooth finish.
Additionally, it has been reported that there will be three improvements in terms of functionality, including the addition of Portrait mode to video (which is supposed to be dubbed Cinematic video), a tool called ProRES, and a new filtering process.
Hardware and software are the sixth and seventh items.
With the iPhone 12 series providing 5G connectivity, it seems likely that the iPhone 13 models will do the same. They will also very certainly be powered by the A15 chip and iOS 15 software, the latter of which was showcased at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) at the beginning of June. It has also been said that they would all be equipped with Qualcomm’s X60 5G modem.
For the iPhone 13 models, it is said that battery capacities have been added to China’s 3C (China Compulsory Certificate) certification site for testing. According to reports, the iPhone 13 Pro Max will have a battery capacity of 4352mAh, the iPhone 13 will have a battery capacity of 3095mAh, and the iPhone 13 small will have a battery capacity of 2406mAh. All of them are a little bit bigger than their predecessors.
Various other hardware and software features have yet to be revealed in rumors, but we can expect to learn more about them in the coming months.

On April 20, 2020, a smaller notch will be introduced.
Several rumors have indicated that the iPhone 12 would feature a reduced notch, but that all of the Face ID sensors will still be there and functioning.

Apple has submitted a patent for a phone with no-notch on December 31st, 2019.

Ben Geskin created some renderings of what the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max might have looked like if the notch had been removed, which you can see below. If Apple decides to make this change for the iPhone 13 models, we’ve kept them in place for now.
Apple is creating an in-screen sensor, according to BEN GESKIN on September 5, 2019.
According to Bloomberg, Apple is working on an in-display fingerprint identification technology that will be similar to the solutions that have been adopted by companies like Samsung, OnePlus, Huawei, and other similar organizations.
Expected to be a Touch ID-branded feature that would operate in conjunction with Face ID, enabling users to skip their smartphone’s lock screen with more efficiency while also processing payments on their device.
