I know you definitely didn’t expect to see a new iPhone this year. Just kidding. Still, it’s worth putting on the list because of the new features of the so-called “iPhone 13.”
First, some good news. It seems like Apple won’t go completely portless this year. Many rumors suggested that Apple will have at least one iPhone 13 model with no charging port at all, not even Lightning. However, Apple analyst and leaker Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple wouldn’t be ditching the Lightning port this year.
Even better news, rumors, and leaks say that the new iPhone will have a smaller notch, albeit it will still be noticeable. Thanks to a redesigned camera module on the front, we expect a smaller notch across all iPhone models.
Speaking of iPhone models, we should expect the same four-model formula Apple used with the iPhone 12. There have been rumors of Apple ditching the iPhone mini model, but since the company released a new purple iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini, it’ll probably keep the smaller iPhone at least for one more year.
Other than that we should expect the same familiar improvements: better camera, more powerful processor, and a better battery. Regarding design, we’re expecting to see a similar design to the iPhone 12 with little to no changes, other than the notch that is.
