All iPhone 13 Models To Feature LiDAR Technology
Last year when Apple refreshed the iPad Pro, one of the new hardware features they introduced was LiDAR. Apple later brought it over to the iPhone 12, except that only the higher-end iPhone 12 models had the technology. For those who are shopping on a slightly tighter budget, you might be interested to learn that all the iPhone 13 models could come with the tech.
iPhone 13 Could Come With Larger Batteries Across The Board
When Apple launched the iPhone 11, many were surprised at the battery gains of the handset over its predecessor. However, with the launch of the iPhone 12, Apple for whatever reason decided to lower the battery size across the models, an odd move given the gains from the previous model.
iPhone 13 With mmWave 5G Could Launch In More Countries
As it stands, there are two standards when it comes to 5G – mmWave and sub-6GHz. The iPhone 12 is Apple’s first iPhone to support 5G, but it is only in the US where it supports mmWave, while other countries that the iPhone 12 is available in can only use sub-6GHz, but that could change with its predecessor.
Samsung Reportedly Kicks Off Production Of iPhone 13’s 120Hz Display Panels
Despite having a well-publicized legal battle against each other, Apple and Samsung have a very fruitful business relationship with each other. It is said that the iPhone’s OLED displays (partly) come from Samsung, so it doesn’t really come as a surprise to learn that production for the displays of the iPhone 13 have already begun at Samsung’s factories.
All iPhone 13 Models Could Feature Sensor Shift Camera Stabilization
One of the ways Apple differentiates its iPhone models would be through the camera. For example, when they first brought image stabilization technology to the iPhone, the higher-end models got optical image stabilization, while the lower-end models got digital stabilization. However, with the iPhone 13, Apple could make them all a little bit more equal.
TSMC Has Reportedly Begun Production On A15 Chipset For The iPhone 13
Apple will debut its iPhone 13 later this year, and as we have seen from previous iPhone launches over the year, the new iPhone 13 will most likely come with a brand new chipset. Last year saw the debut of the A14, which means that this year will probably see Apple launch the A15.
iPhone 13’s Face ID Sensor Could be 50% Smaller Than Previous Generation
While we might have to wait until 2023 for Apple to eventually ditch the notch on the iPhone, there have been rumors and leaked photos that claim that for the iPhone 13, Apple will at the very least be making the notch smaller. This is apparently due to the sensors used for Face ID which Apple is said to have shrunk by as much as 50%.
This Could Be Our First Look At The iPhone 13 Pro Max
Later on this year, we can expect Apple to launch their brand new iPhones, which right now are being referred to as the iPhone 13. Part of the lineup is also expected to include the iPhone 13 Pro Max, the top of the line model and the best iPhone 13 that money can buy, but what could it look like?
Analyst Claims More Than One iPhone 13 Could Come With An LTPO Display
One of the popular iPhone 13 rumors is that it could finally see Apple introduce a 120Hz refresh rate to the iPhone lineup. Given that Apple achieved this with the iPad Pro years ago, many have been wondering why it has taken the company this long to bring the feature over to the iPhone.
iPhone 13’s LTPO Display Could Result In 20% Energy Savings
According to the rumors, one of the biggest changes coming to the iPhone this year would be the introduction of an LTPO display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It was initially thought that the use of LTPO displays were to help offset the potential energy drain from the 120Hz refresh rate, but it turns out it might be more efficient than we thought.
Alleged Photo Compares iPhone 13’s Notch With Its Predecessor
According to the rumors, Apple isn’t done with notch on the iPhone just yet, and they might not be for the foreseeable future. However, one potential change we’re seeing is that according to the rumors, Apple could shrink the notch a bit. Previously leaked photos have shown a smaller notch, but how much smaller are we talking about?
iPhone 13 Pro Max Could Sport A Camera With A Wider Aperture
If you prefer being able to take photos in low light without having to crank the exposure, ISO, or add flash, then that’s where a lens with a larger aperture comes in handy. The good news is that this is something we can look forward to in the iPhone 13 Pro Max, or at least that’s what analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims.
The iPhone 13 Will Continue To Keep Its Ports
There have been rumors that suggest that Apple will eventually launch a portless iPhone. In fact, one of those rumors came from prolific leakster Jon Prosser who back in May 2020, seemed pretty confident that a portless iPhone could launch this year. However, a new report suggests that will not happen.
iPhone 13 Could Come With An Anti-Fingerprint Coating
There’s a lot to love about the iPhone 12’s design. The use of metal and glass certainly lends a luxurious feel to the phone, but unfortunately, it is one hell of a fingerprint magnet. Even if you slap a case on it, the glass cover for the camera is still a magnet for fingerprint and dust.
Leaked Photo Shows Alleged Smaller Notch For The iPhone 13
As we have heard in the rumors in the past, the notch on the iPhone 13 will continue to remain. However, one of the claims is that Apple could shrink the size of the notch, and now thanks to photos obtained by MacRumors from Greek technology repair company iRepair, there is evidence to suggest that it could be true.
Samsung Could Supply Apple With LTPO 120Hz Displays For The iPhone 13
The rumors of a 120Hz iPhone 13 are starting to gain traction, and a new report out of Korea from The Elec has corroborated that.

iPhone 13 Set To Late September Release
Last year, Apple launched the iPhone 12 lineup a bit later than expected. It was said that this is due to the pandemic which resulted in Apple having difficulty testing out the production units.

New Report ‘Confirms’ iPhone 13 Will Most Likely Come With Touch ID
Face ID is an amazing piece of technology, but it has its flaws, such as users having to look at the phone to unlock it, whereas Touch ID is more flexible in that regard. The good news is that it looks like we are hearing more reports that Touch ID will indeed be making a return to the next-gen iPhone which is expected to launch later this year.
The iPhone 13 Could Come With Larger Batteries
When Apple launched the iPhone 11 series, many were surprised at the massive jump in battery size. However, with the iPhone 12 series, it feels like Apple regressed and took a step backwards with less than ideal battery life, but the good news is that this could change with the upcoming iPhone 13 series.
Apple Could Still Be Planning To Launch The iPhone 13 Mini This Year
Despite initial favorable reviews of the iPhone 12 mini, real-life proved to be a very different story and sales of the iPhone 12 mini have reportedly been so bad that Apple has been rumored to be considering halting production of the handset next quarter. So where does that leave the iPhone 13 mini?
