An iPhone 5s Won A Photography Award In 2021
The iPhone 5s was launched in 2013, which means that it is now 8 years old.

iPhone 13 SE Expected In First Half Of 2022
The first iPhone SE was launched quite a while ago and for a moment, it seemed as though it was a short lived experiment and that Apple would not launch such a device again.

iPhone 13 Could Finally Come With An Always-On Display
Always-on displays can be found on some smartphone models, but not all of them. This is useful for looking at notifications at a glance without having to reach for your phone or tapping the display.

The cameras on Apple’s iPhone have been very well-received.

Soon You Won’t Even Need To Take Your iPhone Out Of Your Pocket To Unlock Your Car Door
One of the features Apple introduced back in 2020 was the ability for users to use their iPhones to unlock their car doors, assuming they had a compatible car model, of course. You would, however, need to take your iPhone out and hold it to the driver’s side door for it to work, which is fine.

When Apple first announced MagSafe for the iPhone, accessory makers were quick to jump on the bandwagon, where one of them produced a battery pack that used MagSafe to not only connect and charge the iPhone, but it did so without the need for wires or a special case. It was later rumored that Apple could be working on something similar.
LiDAR Will Still Be Exclusive To The iPhone 13 Pro Models
