he latest version of iPhone 13 in the form of set of dummies looks tweeted out by leaker Sony Dickson. The purpose of the photo was to show a line up of four phones, the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max as earlier reported by the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. It matches with the four iPhone 12 models from last year. The iPhone 13 Pro Max is slightly bigger than other versions. The major difference in the dummies is a small change in the design of iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini’s camera section/modules. We have more info on design of iPhone 13 below.
The iPhone 13 ( We’re going with the name “iPhone 13” for now ) didn’t make an appearance in WWDC ( Worldwide Developers Conference) 2021, but as we have seen IOS 15 in Beta version, we get the key information about the iPhone 13’s new features. We have been hearing a lot lately about the color options of iPhone 13. First we heard of color pink as per leaks around the world and now matte black as per Everything Apple Pro E A P on YouTube of leaker Max Weinbach.
We have collected every rumors and leaks we heard below including the iPhone 13’s release date ( September as per usual rumors), comparison with iPhone 12 , price, cameras, new features and other specs. We have more few more months of prediction so buckle up and read on.
(Might not be iPhone 13) We are going with the name iPhone 13 for now but its not a sure thing. If we consider tall buildings, they try to exclude the 13th floor from their elevator buttons for superstitious reasons so Apple can skip the number 13. People think iPhone 12S is a worthy name for Apple’s next generation of iPhone just like iPhone 6. Apple can go in a completely different direction and name it something fun like Motorola Citrus or LG chocolate.
Apple’s iPhone 12 consists of four phones at four different prices in the variations of carrier and storage configurations. At launch, iPhone 12 carrier model cost $799, an increase of $100 from 2019’s iPhone 11 due to the addition of 5G support. As iPhone 13 is not expected to have such a major technical upgrade so there will be similar price structure for 2021.
There are already number of rumors on the tweeter showing the rumored design of iPhone 13. A recent one, from Macrumers, shows the resized camera bump and increased thickness of the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro compared to its recent versions. According to rumors iPhone 13’s camera bump is slightly thicker. A new rumor in late June from Sony Dickson on Twitter showed a slight difference on iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 mini’s camera bump with camera on diagonal side besides side by side on top. In Early May Peng phones leaked a image of bubblegum pink iPhone 13 though it ended up as the 3D image created by an artist on Instagram. Then in June, new leak from YouTube channel “EverythingApplePro” showed a matte black iPhone 13.
Rumor from one of the Chinese social media platform Weibo in early June suggested that iPhone 13 will have larger batteries than the iPhone 12. The specs leaked by leaker @LOvetodream claims that there will be a 2,406mAh battery for the iPhone 13 Mini, 3,095mAh for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, and 4,325mAh for the iPhone 13 Pro Max. These are all the upgrades over iPhone 12 in context of batteries. However battery life and battery capacities are two different things so it’s possible that the increase in iPhone 13’s battery size will not translate into a longer battery life. That all depends on upgrades and how well its software optimizes for battery life.
According to rumors, the size of iPhone 13 mini will be 5.4 inch, iPhone 13 will be 6.1 inch, iPhone 13 Pro will be same as iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro Max will be 6.7 inch.
There’s no official word from Apple on when we can see their next iPhone. We found that the manufacturing of the iPhone’s new chip are running ahead of schedule from April report. iPhone are basically released in a week or two after Apple’s announcements. New iPhones are usually released on Friday, around the 3rd week of September.
Questions and queries:
1. Will Apple kill the lightning port too ?
# As Apple has already removed the headphone jack, the doomsday clock started ticking for the iPhone’s charging port as well. Though we are still holding out hope for USB-C port. Frequently leaker Jon Prosser has shared his prediction on his YouTube channel that ” The end goal is port less “.
2. Is there any better zoom capabilities for the iPhone 13 ?
# As the iPhone 12 Pro Max only featured a 2.5x optical zoom, the iPhone 13 could potentially include a periscope camera, a technology that would allow for a larger range zoom without requiring an even larger camera bump. iPhone 13 has a potential to include a periscope camera, a technology that would allow for a larger range zoom without requiring an even larger camera bump. Kuo has already made similar predictions for a future periscope lens, though his report predicted that we may have to wait until 2022. It’s also possible that the 2.5x zoom found on the iPhone 12 Pro Max could flow down to the next iPhone’s Pro model.
3. What is the refresh rate for the iPhone 13 ?
# We thought we will get a refresh rate of 120Hz in iPhone 12 but that rumors didn’t plan out. Its because of increased demands on battery, 5G connectivity and so more so, it featured the same 60Hz display as the previous year’s iPhone 11.
But this year, it can be a year of 120Hz display, which would result in a smoother, faster scrolling experience that will make higher screen refresh rate. Many higher-end devices already featured a 120Hz display (e.g. the One Plus 8T and Galaxy S21). So Apple can move in its Pro-direction.

Battery: 2,406mAh ( iPhone 13 Mini ) 3,095mAh ( iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro ), and 4,325mAh ( iPhone 13 Pro Max ).
