Several interesting rumors have come to light about Apple’s iPhone 13 series coming this fall, which they obtained from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who was well-informed around the MacRumors company house – and which also provide insight into the potential future plans of the Cupertino giant.
According to Kuo, with the iPhone 13, Apple will bring in important lags in displays, starting by rolling up the refresh rate. The screens in the new series will finally operate at 120 hertz, bringing the company not only behind the top device category in the smartphone market, but also for the iPad Pro models, whose ProMotion panels have been supporting higher image refresh rates since 2017. The other major innovation is the shrinking notch that houses the front camera and FaceID sensors, leaving users with more useful display space.
The iPhone 13 series, like last year’s 12-series, will consist of four models, according to Kuo – while the analyst previously talked about one of which Apple could potentially remove all sockets, and as of now, all four devices will eventually be marketed with Lightning ports. Accordingly, neither a completely wireless design nor a USB-Cs switch is expected. The latter is likely to completely avoid iPhones, according to the analyst, and will switch from Apple Lightning to wireless magnetic MagSafe right away in the future. As far as wireless connections are concerned, the devices are expected to work with Qualcomm X60 5G modems.
The back covers are rumored to feature more muscular ultra-wide-angle cameras with f / 1.8 instead of f / 2.4, and all devices in the series will also get the image stabilization features known from the iPhone 12 Pro Max. However, the LiDAR sensor remains the property of the current Pro Max model. The good news is also that, according to preliminary information, Apple is squeezing a larger battery into all new devices than the iPhone 12 series.
Last but not least, Ming-Chi Kuo says it is not worth expecting a new iPhone SE this year, with a new release of the wallet-friendly model in the first half of 2022 at the earliest, with the same design and updated iron.
