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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. They also provided additional information, like how Samsung will be the supplier of the displays and that in addition to being 120Hz, they will also be of the LTPO variety.
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. That being said, it has been reported that the iPhone 13 will be going back on track for a September launch.
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.
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.
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?
While Android phones are busy packing their displays with refresh rates of at least 90Hz or better, for some reason Apple hasn’t gotten around to doing the same for the iPhone. However, a report from Max Weinbach of EverythingApplePro believes that this year, the iPhone 13 could finally come with such a display.
Android devices with always-on displays aren’t new, but yet this is something Apple has never adopted, or at least until recently with the Apple Watch. However, it seems that for the next iPhone, Apple could finally be introducing an always-on display. This is according to Max Weinbach over at EverythingApplePro.
The iPhone’s Camera app currently comes with a Night Mode which helps make photos brighter when the camera’s software feels like the scene is a bit too dark. This is useful compared to using flash as flash, especially those built into our smartphones, are limiting and can result in photos that are very harsh.
There have been multiple rumors suggesting that Apple could be looking to bring Touch ID back. Apparently part of the reason is due to the pandemic where we are all wearing face masks, which means that using Face ID has become rather troublesome as it obviously cannot see through our masks.
According to the rumors, Apple’s iPhone for 2021 is going to be treated as more of a “S” version, which means that the upgrades will be mostly under the hood and that we shouldn’t expect any design changes. However, one of those upgrades could be interesting as it could come in the form of faster WiFi.
If you hate the notch design on the iPhone, know that based on previous reports it has been suggested that the notch will not be going away anytime soon. However, it could be potentially less obnoxious and less in-your-face, according to a new report from DigiTimes who claims that the upcoming iPhone 13 could sport a smaller notch design.
Apart from the differences in size, one of the ways Apple has set the iPhone 12 models apart from one another is through its cameras. Each iPhone 12 model has a slightly different camera setup from the other, with the largest and most expensive iPhone 12 Pro Max having the “best” camera tech out of the lot.
As good as Face ID is, there is no denying that a fingerprint sensor is a lot more convenient, especially in this day and age when we are walking around with masks on. Now, there have been reports in the past that claims that Apple could be looking to bring back fingerprint scanning in the form of an in-display Touch ID sensor, and there is a chance that it could […]
Apple has, in the past, always strived to make its iPhones as thin as humanly possible. While it is a tech marvel and beautiful to behold, some people have had issues with the thinness as it can make it a bit hard to hold. This is why the iPhone 12 mini actually garnered a lot of praise as it was considerably more manageable than its larger and more unwieldy sibling, […]
