The launch of the new iPhone 13 series is within a day and as always, there are a lot of leaks on what to expect from Apple’s next smartphone. But as we’ve seen in the past, not all of these claims turned out to be true, as Apple usually has some surprises up its sleeve. This time around, we also wonder if Apple will ditch the unlucky number 13 and go straight to the iPhone 14 brand instead.
If you’re looking forward to the next iPhone, here’s a good idea of what to expect, based on what’s been claimed so far. The iPhone 13 series is expected to launch at the Apple event on September 14, which will be uploaded to YouTube at 10:30 p.m. IST. You can watch the event live in the link embedded below.
IPhone 13 series: what to expect?
Four variations: The iPhone 13 series is expected to come in four variants, as is the iPhone 12 series. There is an expected iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. The Pro and Pro Max are set to have additional features and more powerful specs, as we’ve seen in the past.
Screens: The iPhone 13 Mini is expected to sport a 5.4-inch screen, and the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro could be equipped with a larger 6.1-inch screen. The iPhone 13 Pro Max is said to have the biggest screen of the bunch, at 6.7 inches.
The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are expected to feature a 120Hz ProMotion dynamic refresh rate with LTPO panels. This will allow the screen to change its refresh rate from 1 Hz to 120 Hz depending on what is displayed, thus contributing to battery life. Both Pro models can even get an Always-On display feature. However, the iPhone 13 Mini and iPhone 13 might lack both LTPO panels and the Always-On display.
More storage space: It looks like the iPhone 13 Pro series might have a 1TB storage version. This information comes from famous Apple analyst Ming Chi-Kuo of TF International Securities. According to 9to5Mac, which accessed Kuo’s latest note, Apple is also dropping the 64GB storage option on the iPhone 13 and 13 mini. Instead, these phones will now start at 128 GB with options of 256 GB and 512 GB. Currently, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini have a maximum storage option of 256 GB. For the Pro series, Apple adds an additional 1TB option along with the earlier storage options of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB, according to Kuo.
Camera: Not much is known about the camera modules we’ll see in the iPhone 13 series, although we would expect some improvements over the cameras in the iPhone 12 series. Expected new features include cinematic video, which will bring portrait mode to video.
Better filters are expected, which will now use AI to apply filters to various elements of an image. A new astrophotography mode, as well as a ProRes video mode, are also expected, which will allow phones to record in higher quality.
New chip: The new iPhone 13 series is expected to ship with a new A15 Bionic chip, which will offer better overall and graphics performance compared to previous iterations. We expect Apple to spend considerable time on the A15 chipset during its launch presentation, as it has in the past.
Design: All four variants of the iPhone 13 are expected to feature smaller notches compared to the iPhone 12 series. While we’re still unlikely to see a perforated implementation, the notch this time is, according to the leaks. , considerably smaller, 33% to be precise.
The iPhone 13 and 13 Mini are said to be listed in the black, blue, pink, purple, white, and red variants of the product. Meanwhile, the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max are listed in the colors black, silver, gold and bronze this year.
Battery life: Leaks also pointed to larger batteries across the entire iPhone 13 series. The iPhone 13 Mini is expected to ship with a 2,406mAh battery instead of the 2,227mAh battery found on its predecessor .
Likewise, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro could feature a 3,095mAh battery instead of 2,815mAh. The iPhone 13 Pro Max is expected to feature a 4,352mAh battery instead of a 3,687mAh unit. Keep in mind that Apple has generally never confirmed battery size on iPhones and only gives an implementation of battery life compared to the previous version.
