With September just around the corner it’s time to start thinking about the upcoming release of the next iPhone, previously dubbed as ‘’iPhone 13’’. Whilst some of the larger details are still inconspicuous, there are some exciting details that have been leaked to the public.
What are we expecting?
It’s likely the iPhone 13 will consist of the four subsections that we’re used to seeing in iPhone releases. These include:
- iPhone 13
- iPhone 13 Mini
- iPhone 13 Pro
- iPhone 13 Pro Max
Apple usually release their newest additions towards the end of Autumn, and we see no reason that this should change. We expect the release date to be in September, as past launches have also been released the first or second week of the month, with the phones hitting the stores either the third or fourth Friday of the month (September 17th or 24th).
Some of the leaks boast significant camera improvements, more storage than ever, a smooth upgrade to the refresh rate of the screen and a more powerful chipset. Not everything is looking like it might change though, Apple are likely to keep a more modest approach to the overall design and keep the look recognisable. A very real possibility is that the new release will mirror the iPhone 12’s design and launch under the name iPhone 12S rather than the iPhone 13.
Whilst Apple maybe taking a more modest approach to the design upgrades this time around, rumours suggest that they are planning to trim down the camera bump as well as introduce a matte black option (mixed from the current graphite colour available on the Pro).
Smaller notches also seem likely, as the Face ID sensor has supposedly also shrunk. Leaked photos also depict the earpiece moving to the bezel above leaving more room for a smaller notch. One thing that probably won’t be changing is the sizes of the phones, with leaks suggesting we’ll see four models, with the same screen sizes as the iPhone 12 range.
iPhone 13 Camera
Industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has suggested the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max’s ultra-wide camera may be bumped to a f/1.8, six-element lens from the current f/2.4, five-element lens on the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max.
He additionally claims that the Pro models will get autofocus for their ultra-wide lenses, with all four iPhone 14’s getting this upgrade in 2022. Kuo repeated his ideas in June 2021, so it seems he’s confident in it. This change should create better low-light performance, but this also means a shallower depth of field, which can be unwanted for landscape images.
