In September 2021, Apple is scheduled to hold its iPhone 13 launch event. Although the September Apple Event is still months away, the leaked render images give us an idea of some of the iPhone 13 specifications.
The most recent one appears to confirm the return of Touch ID, but with a twist. It will be in the form of an in-display fingerprint scanner rather than a physical one. This confirms previous rumors that pointed in the same direction.
The camera module design has undergone several improvements. The camera sensors on the iPhone 13 are positioned diagonally. There are four cutouts in the square-shaped camera module, two of which are for the LED Flash and the microphone.
The notch on the front is smaller. According to previous news, Apple will eventually reduce the size of the notch on the iPhone 13 series. To save space, the earpiece has been relocated to the top bezel.
The unit is 146.771.57.6mm in length. The lightning port is already on the bottom side. The power button is located on the right side, while the volume controls are located on the left edge.
Another rumor about iOS 15 features indicates that the next-generation Apple operating system will have a multi-factor authentication API that will enable developers to use Touch ID. Face ID, which is actually the only biometrics on an iPhone, is planned to be launched at the same time.
The iPhone 13 would have dual biometrics as a result of this, something that Android phones have had for years. It’s also been proposed that the iPhones in 2021 will have a fingerprint scanner built into the glass panel, which will disable Touch ID if the monitor is replaced.
Other than that, the iPhone 13 isn’t supposed to have any significant design changes.
There will most likely be four iPhone 13 models: the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, 13 Pro, and 13 Pro Max. All devices will have an A15 Bionic chip, iOS 15, and camera enhancements such as better zooming, enhanced night mode, and more.
The concept renders for the iPhone 13 Pro have also been leaked. The notch on the Pro model will get smaller, much as it did on the iPhone 13. The camera bump on the back is said to be larger than that of the iPhone 12 Pro. Apple is rumored to be using a larger sensor in the iPhone 13 Pro models, resulting in a larger camera module. It will have three camera sensors, as well as a LiDAR sensor and an LED flash.
A 6.1-inch monitor will be included in both models. The dimensions of the Pro model will be 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.6 mm.
The iPhone 13 series, which is said to have a 120Hz ProMotion Camera, will eventually catch up with Android flagship smartphones by introducing the Pro model with an LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) display.
Despite the global chip shortage, the iPhone 13 phones are scheduled to launch in September, which appears to be on schedule. However, no official statement has been made on the subject.
