iPhone 13 leaks and rumors
It’s still early for iPhone 13 leaks and rumors, so we don’t know much yet.
Design: Notchless and USB-C?
One alleged 2021 iPhone prototype in summer 2020 showed a device that was notchless and sported a USB-C port. That mock-up was made based on information from the Chinese-equivalent of eBay, Alibaba.
An improved ultra-wide camera?
We do know according to reputable analysts like Ming-Chi Kuo that the 2021 iPhone is expected to have improved ultra-wide cameras. This could mean an aperture widened from f/2.4 to f/1.8, the number of lens elements increased from five to six, and the ultra-wide lens could get auto-focus for the first time.
5nm A15 chip?
A market intelligence firm by the name of TrendForce came out with a report in November 2020 stating that Apple’s A15 system-on-a-chip (set to launch inside the iPhone 13) will remain a 5nm process like the A14 that shipped in the iPhone 12.
