Details about the iPhone 13 series design, specifications, and pricing are still scarce. Apple is tight-lipped about its upcoming phone. However, the impending lineup continues to make appearances online in the form of highly convincing renderings and CAD drawings.
2021 iPhones are expected to be announced in September. While the launch isn’t yet around the corner, dummy models have started making the round. MacRumors managed to get their hands on these models and gave their readers a rundown of the leaks that have surfaced on the web over the last few months.
iPhone 13 Lineup Design
The site received dummy models of the iPhone 13 Pro Max, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 mini, and the iPhone 13. These kinds of mockups are usually designed for case manufacturers. Releasing a case for a new device is quite lucrative. These models are designed based on leaked details from the company’s manufacturing partners.
It is worth noting that dummy models are usually an accurate depiction of Apple’s upcoming devices. The aforesaid dummy models bear a striking resemblance to the iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 mini, and the iPhone 12. In other words, the tech company is unlikely to bring any major design changes to the 2021 iPhones.
While even the sizes seem to be the same, there may be some minor differences in terms of thickness for some models. For the most part, the iPhone 13 series will look like its predecessor. Apple is reportedly planning to reduce the size of the notch for its upcoming iPhone lineup, and the dummy model seems to showcase these changes.
The top bezel will now house the microphone. This design change will probably enable the company to offer a slimmer camera module in the front. If a report from IndiaToday is anything to go by, only the iPhone 13 Pro model features the LiDAR sensor. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will feature a quad-camera setup at the back,
The Dummy Models Hint At Some Negligible Design Changes
There will be notable changes made to the camera modules. However, the general body design isn’t likely to undergo a radical overhaul. Moreover, the 2021 iPhone is expected to boast an array of new features. The iPhone 13 lineup could support Sensor-Shift Stabilization. There are a few other improvements likely to be available in the iPhone 13 Pro model.
Aside from that, the camera bump of the iPhone 13 Pro seems to be larger than the camera bump of the iPhone 12 Pro. It is as big as the iPhone 13 Pro Max camera bump. This means that you will not be able to use your iPhone 12 Pro case for the iPhone 13 Pro. MacRumors attempted to put the iPhone 13 Pro case on its precursor, but they didn’t fit.
The lens sizes of the dummy model are quite different, but there are no other changes. Apple is likely to arrange the camera lenses diagonally for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. The top right corner of the camera setup will feature a flash, while the bottom left will house a microphone.
