Apple might support a bit faster charging on iPhone 13 with a 25W USB-C power adapter, claims a new rumor. By comparison, iPhone 12 supports fast charging with a 20W adapter.
The iPhone 13 screen has been predicted again to provide always-on functionality said to be akin to the Apple Watch's always-on screen, this time by reliable reporter Mark Gurman.
iPhone 13 may enable enhanced wireless networking via support for the upcoming Wi-Fi 6E protocol, operating on a 6GHz band and offering increased speed and range.
We're inching closer to the time when Apple is going to announce new iPhones. Expectations, as usual, are set for early September. So it's no surprise to start seeing the hardware start cropping up ahead of time. Of course, nothing official. But, for now, it will certainly do.
One of the features that Apple has yet to add to its flagship iPhones is a faster display refresh rate. There have been rumors swirling around for quite some time the company is close to doing it. And maybe this year will be the year. But it won't be until 2022 that the entirety of the new lineup boasts the feature.
The iPhone 13 camera bump size may increase substantially over the current iPhone 12 Pro Max to accommodate bigger lenses and stabilizers, as evidenced by newly-leaked photos.
The “iPhone 13” name will stay, apparently. Rather than skip straight to “iPhone 14,” Apple reportedly has the courage to use the number 13 for the upcoming 2021 iPhone launch.
The iPhone 12 lineup isn't necessarily a slouch when it comes to battery capacity, or life. Still, there's some room for improvement. The iPhone 13 series may do just that.
According to reliable leaker L0vetodream, who posted a photo with some information on Twitter recently, Apple is going to give a significant uptick in battery capacity to its next iPhone lineup. At its peak, the biggest increase will see up to 18% improvement to capacity for the larger iPhone. Meanwhile, even the smallest smartphone is reportedly getting bigger.
Apple suppliers Samsung and LG Display have reportedly kicked off production of OLED panels for the upcoming iPhone 13 family, with Samsung focused on the 120Hz ProMotion screens.
It's felt pretty quiet out of the rumor mill regarding the upcoming iPhone refresh, and today's latest news regarding the camera system in the upcoming lineup doesn't really change that.
That's because this latest rumor is just the same rumor we've heard in the past. It's regarding the standout sensor-shift camera stabilization feature that Apple introduced with the iPhone 12 Pro Max late last year. It's easily one of the best camera-focused features in the iPhone 12 lineup, but it's reserved for the largest --and most expensive-- model. But that may be changing this year.
Apple has a thing for thin devices -- just look at that colorful iMac! -- but it looks like the company will be giving in a little with the next iPhone.
Later this year, Apple's going to launch the iPhone 13 lineup. Unless something really crazy happens. But, as long as we stay on course and new iPhones do get unveiled, those new handsets might boast a slightly different design.
