What is iPhone 13?

iPhone 13 is the presumed name for Apple’s 2021 flagship iPhone. This device is expected to build on what Apple built with the iPhone 12, adding new features like improved cameras, high refresh rate displays, and more. Like the iPhone 12 series, the iPhone 13 is expected to ship with 5G.

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.

Display: more power efficient, always-on possible

As for the iPhone 13’s display, the latest rumors about the 2021 iPhone lineup suggest that it could be more power efficient and support always-on functionality.

iPhone 13 release date

Apple has released an iPhone annually for over ten years, and we’re expecting the company to launch the latest 2021 iPhone in the fall just as it has done with every other flagship model.

A report from analyst Ming Chi Kuo said that Apple is planning to manufacture and launch the iPhone 13 on a regular timeline — unlike the iPhone 12 series, which was delayed due to COVID-19.

iPhone 13 specs

iPhone 13 specs won’t be completely clear until after it launches in the fall of 2021, but there are a few things we can assume based on existing iPhone models and leaked information about the new iPhone.

iPhone 13 price and where to buy

We don’t know what the iPhone 13 price will be yet, but we do know it’s likely to be in the same general ballpark as the iPhone 12. That will mean the standard iPhone 13 coming in around $800, the Pro model nearing $1,000, and perhaps a mini model will stick around at $700. You’ll be able to purchase it at all major carriers and in brick and mortar retail stores nationwide.
