Last year Apple unveiled its iPhone 12 series with some design refreshments and an approach that resembles the days of the iPhone 5 series. For the new iPhone 13 series, we’re not expecting ground-breaking changes in the phone’s build, but the display is finally going to change, at least on the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Max. According to reports, the duo of the iPhone 13 Pro will get a narrower notch and will also bring back the touch ID fingerprint scanner. Probably using an in-display solution. These rumors come from EverythingApplePro and Max Weinbach. The former tapped ConceptCreator to help with the 3D modeling of this alleged new design.
Interestingly, the reports even suggest a new camera bump in the iPhone 13 Pro duo. According to it, the camera will still bring multiple elevations. In other words, each lens will stick out of the camera bump. It’s just that it will stick out less than on the iPhone 12 series. The image stabilization system will be upgraded with a feature that tries to keep the subject in the center of the shot. Apple is working on improving the portrait mode by using data from the LiDAR for a cleaner separation between subject and background. The Portrait mode will also work on videos.
Apple iPhone 13 Pro coming with revamped Space Gray colorway
The Space Gray color is also receiving a new treatment. It will be darker and close to black with a matte finish. According to Winebach, Apple is also testing a new fancy Orange color. However, it may not be ready for the launch which is coming back to the September schedule.
Another interesting detail revealed by Weibach is that Apple is, in fact, bringing back the iPhone mini this year. Several reports have been suggesting the end of this particular variant due to poor iPhone 12 mini sales. However, Apple will insist on this variant for another year. So if you’re among the ones who like a compact flagship, you’ll be served again this year.
Talking about iPads, the company will introduce a bunch of new iPad Pros with new technologies such as mini LED displays and an Apple A14x SoC based on the Apple M1 SoC. The company will also bring the Apple Watch Series 8 this year with new exciting features such as a blood glucose sensor. As far as accessories are concerned, the giant may also bring the AirTags.
