Apple’s iPhone 13 may feature a completely new design that distinguishes it from the iPhone 12 in many ways. A redesign with a smaller notch and a larger camera bump, as well as a few new color choices such as bubblegum pink, matte black, and a bronzy “Sunset Gold,” is expected to appear with the next iPhone, which is expected to launch in September.

Although we won’t know the exact specifications of the iPhone 13 until later, we may anticipate seeing four new iPhones from Apple — the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max — during the company’s September event. Earlier this year, the purple iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini were released, and the new phones will follow in their footsteps.

According to the speculations and leaks that have surfaced thus far, we aren’t anticipating a significant design change for the iPhone 13 — it will most likely look and function similarly to the iPhone 12 in terms of models, cameras, size, and pricing, among other things. (Read on for more information on how the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 are anticipated to compare.) However, there are a few noteworthy improvements and enhancements that may make using the iPhone 13 a lot more convenient for users. Here’s what we know right now about the situation.

1.iPhone 13 models are available in a variety of sizes.

The following are the rumored iPhone 13 dimensions:

iPhone 13 Mini (5.4-inch display)
iPhone 13 has a 6.1-inch display.
iPhone 13 Pro (6.1-inch display)
iPhone 13 Pro Max Display Size: 6.7-inch

These sizes are the same as the iPhone 12, however, they may wind up being just a hair thicker as a result of the manufacturing process (more below).

2.A notch that is smaller in size

Since the release of the iPhone X in 2017, Apple has incorporated a notch display on every model of the device to accommodate the selfie camera. Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple analyst at KGI Securities, predicted in March that the iPhone 13 will feature a smaller notch than its predecessors.

3.The same Lightning port as before (for most iPhone 13 models)

While the headphone jack is no longer present on iPhones, some speculated that the emergence of MagSafe accessories last year would herald the arrival of the first portless iPhone. However, Kuo believes that all iPhone 13 models — with the exception of the iPhone 13 Pro Max — would still feature a Lightning connector in the future. The iPhone 13 may potentially be released without any buttons at all, although this is more likely to happen in a later version.

4.A display with a refresh rate of 120Hz

As previously reported by Bloomberg, Kuo projected that the two iPhone 13 Pro versions would utilize LTPO technology in their screens, which will enable them to have a 120Hz refresh rate, which has also been rumored in the past. While talking about the number of frames per second that a phone screen can show, the number of hertz relates to how quick and smooth the screen seems when you’re scrolling between applications or browsing the web. It also has an impact on how smoothly supported games run.

Since several higher-end phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S21 and the OnePlus 8 Pro, have this function, many people were anticipating seeing it in the iPhone 12. However, Apple did not include it in the iPhone 12. On Twitter, tech analyst and leaker Jon Prosser said that the decision not to include 120Hz in the iPhone 12 pro was made owing to concerns about battery life, given that 5G consumes a significant amount of power on its own. However, it seems probable that this will be less of an issue with the iPhone 13.

5.A larger battery capacity

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that all four iPhone 13 models will have bigger batteries than their iPhone 12 counterparts. This would allow the display to run at 120Hz.

6.A wider width as well as a camera bump

According to a rumor published in May by MacRumors, the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro models may wind up being thicker than their predecessors, the iPhone 12. Both of the new versions are anticipated to be 7.57mm thick, which is an increase over the 7.4mm thickness of the iPhone 12. However, this is a subtle distinction that the majority of people will not notice.

According to MacRumors, a modification to the camera bump may be the most apparent alteration: While the camera bumps on the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are about 1.5mm to 1.7mm in height, the iPhone 13’s hump will be 2.51mm in height and the 13 Pro’s bump will be 3.56mm in height. Since the phone has grown in size, the lenses will no longer protrude as much as they do on earlier models.

7.iPhone 13 colors are available.

A significant number of credible leaks regarding possible iPhone 13 colors have surfaced recently. The iPhone 12 is available in six colors: deep blue, minty green, Project Red, white, black, and, most recently, purple. Deep blue is the most popular color, followed by minty green and Project Red. Apple often swaps out one color for another in its new models, but we aren’t sure which one will be used in this case.

It is possible that Apple may introduce a new color for the iPhone 13, dubbed “Sunset Gold,” to its range, according to leaker Ranzuk on Naver, a Korean blogging site. The hue is claimed to have a “bronze feel” to it and to be a shade that is a shade or two darker than Apple’s rose gold. @RendersbyIan shared renderings of the iPhone 13’s new hue on Twitter, which you can see below. Earlier in the year, there was speculation regarding a pink iPhone 13, and although there is certainly a market for that hue, this “rumor” seemed more like wishful thinking than anything more. This spring, rumors about a new matte black hue surfaced on the internet, as reported by EverythingApplePro on YouTube, which attributed the information to leaker Max Weinbach.
