We’re only a month and a half into 2021, enjoying our iPhone 12, and we’re already facing some promising leaks for the next generation iPhone, iPhone 13 or iPhone 12S, whatever it’s called in the end. A bunch of information has recently emerged from various sources providing us with an insight into what all we can expect from Apple this year. Like most leak and speculation information, they may or may not end up in the final product, so take them with a little salt.
He shared ‘exclusive’ information Max Weinbach in the video EverythingApplePro, known for a fairly precise leak around Apple products. In terms of design, the new iPhone 13 Pro models will retain most of the design elements from the iPhone 12 series, but with a more refined matte finish, which could feel as soft as the Google Pixel. The iPhone 13 / 12S Pro models also have confirmation that they have 120Hz LTPO screens, something that was expected to arrive in the iPhone 12 series, but for some reason did not materialize. The new iPhones are also expected to get a new Always-On Display feature that would be similar to the Apple Watch Series 5 and 6. It is expected to offer very minimal adjustments while keeping the status of the watch and battery visible at all times. For incoming notifications, only a small part of the screen would light up, not the entire screen.
“The screen always on will have minimal flexibility. The current design basically looks like a cushioned lock screen. The watch and battery are always visible. Notifications appear to be displayed using the ribbon and icons. Upon receipt, a notification will normally appear, except that the screen will not light up completely. Instead, it will show just as you are used to now, except muted and only temporarily.”
The new iPhone 13 series is also expected to feature stronger magnets for MagSafe, which should make compatible chargers and other accessories much more securely attached to the phone. The new iPhones could also be a bit thicker, though for now there’s no obvious reason. Also, the notch could be shorter this year, but it could have the same width as the current generation iPhone. There won’t be a built-in fingerprint scanner on display this year either – so if you’re still waiting for Touch ID to compensate for the inefficiency of Face ID in this COVID-dominated reality, the mask shouldn’t hold your breath for this year.
A very interesting feature that Apple is reportedly working on is a new night mode for the camera that would be similar to Pixel’s Astrophotography mode. Once the camera is aimed at the night sky, the iPhone would scan certain artifacts like stars or the moon and automatically make the decision to enable this mode. Also, expect options for a long exposure time.
There is also a possibility that Apple will offer similar telephoto cameras on the new iPhone Pro and Pro Max, which is not the case on the iPhone 12 series. So expect 65mm lenses with an aperture of f / 2.2. We can also expect Portrait Video on the upcoming iPhone series, where it will be single-mode and will provide the ability to change the depth of field in post-processing. The entire iPhone 13 line is also expected to feature a new ultra-wide camera with an improved sensor and 6P lens. In terms of quality, it won’t be as good as other cameras, but Apple is expected to reduce the overall gap. The same was confirmed by popular Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, as well as two analysts from Barclays, so there is a lot of trust behind this rumor.
Another piece of information coming from Kuo is that the new iPhone will use the steam cooling system to hopefully offer better cooling inside. There are also rumors that Apple could finally offer the option of using your iPhone to unlock your Tesla car using the built-in U1 chip. We first saw this chip on the iPhone 11 2019. Oh, and finally, Jon Prosser, who is also a famous tipster, suggests that the iPhone 13 could actually be called the iPhone 12s, which is unusual because we haven’t seen the iPhone 11s.
