While the iPhone 13 is months away from its release, we’ve already started seeing plenty of rumors about what Apple has in store for us when the phone arrives in the fall.
From everything we’ve heard so far, the iPhone 13 is set to offer a 120Hz LTPO display on both Pro models, improved battery life thanks to a more efficient 5G modem, as well as substantial upgrades to the all-important cameras. That includes a LiDAR sensor on cheaper iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, as well as a new portrait video mode.
As for the design, we’ve heard that the notch is shrinking and at least one iPhone 13 model may come with a truly portless design. That’s actually possible now that we have MagSafe charging. We could fiinally see an always-on display, too.
Based on all the rumors and leaks out there already, here’s everything we know about the iPhone 13.
Latest iPhone 13 news (updated February 26)
- A concept video has given us a taste of what a portless iPhone 13 could look like, as well as how it could use in-display Touch ID.
- A new report seemingly confirms that the iPhone 13 will feature Qualcomm’s new X60 5G modem, which would be a major upgrade.
- A new report says that the iPhone 13 will not feature reverse wireless charging, giving Samsung an advantage.
iPhone 13 release date
If the iPhone 13 release date follows Apple’s pattern for previous launches, we could see this device hit shelves on the fourth Friday of September 2021. That would be September 24.
Despite the coronavirus-related delays that faced the iPhone 12, pushing its launch to October 13, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the iPhone 13 should return to a normal release schedule in 2021.
iPhone 13 price
A report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple will once again offer four sizes for the iPhone 13. So you can expect a 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini, a 6.1-inch iPhone 13, a 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max.
We’d expect these to cost the same as the iPhone 12 range, so $699, $799, $999 and $1,099, respectively. Apple tends to keep its pricing structure fairly rigid from generation to generation, so we’re not expecting any increase to the sticker price.
