iPhone 13: Everything we know so far from WWDC 2021

iPhone 13: Everything we know so far from WWDC 2021

Apple has been the talk of the town lately after its Spring Loaded event, it was more than we could hope for but there is still a lot of ambiguity present.

After Apple’s Spring Loaded event, all eyes are on the company’s September event, where the iPhone 13 is slated to debut. As is customary, many of the details are still up in the air: Will the iPhone be foldable? What about a higher rate of a refresh? Will the Lightning port be phased out by Apple? Will a bubblegum pink iPhone, which has caused a stir on the internet, find its way to the shelf?

If the constant trickle of leaks and rumors is to be trusted, we’re getting a surprisingly complete picture of the iPhone 13 even at this early stage. We sifted through them all and selected a few of the more significant and believable ones.

The Chances of iPhone 13 being Foldable are scarce

A dramatic overhaul for the iPhone 13s is doubtful, yet there will be some fascinating things to look out for. However, at least for the time being, a foldable iPhone isn’t one of them. However, a foldable iPhone is not one of them, at least not this year. Instead, we’re hearing about a similar “slabular” design with the flat edges of the iPhone 5 and the same four sizes, ranging from the smallest 5.4-inch iPhone Mini to the largest 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max.

In terms of design, we’re hoping for a reduced notch or a screen with no notch at all. However, before Apple can remove the notch, it must first find out how to hide the Face ID camera modules behind the screen. This is a design aspect that, according to current reports, could make its way into the iPhone 13.

Lightning Port may stay for now

Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known analyst, had stated in a report that Apple would eliminate the Lightning port in favor of an entirely portless phone. Apple’s inclusion of MagSafe in the iPhone 12 seemed to bolster that assertion.

However, that may not be the case anymore. In an Apple Insider story, he claims that MagSafe isn’t now a robust enough ecosystem for Apple to rely on it entirely for charging the iPhone 13. Because USB-C is unlikely to appear on the iPhone, Apple will need to preserve its lighting port.

A 120 Hz screen is likely

The screen is one aspect that’s rumored to change significantly. The two iPhone 13 Pro models will include LTPO technology in their panels, which will give them a 120Hz refresh rate, as we’ve heard before. This is a function that is already available on Android phones such as Samsung’s high-end Galaxy S21 series and Xiaomi’s budget-friendly Redmi Note 10 Pro. Despite Apple’s refusal to reveal refresh rates, all iPhone 12 models have a 60Hz screen refresh rate, which matches the iPhone 11 display.

Expected Price

The iPhone 13 will most likely include incremental enhancements rather than dramatic technological advancements. As a result, analysts predict the iPhone 13 to be priced similarly to the iPhone 12, which starts at $799 (£799, AU$1,349).

Summing Up

iPhone models are anything but subpar. The details revealed by Apple at the Spring Loaded event along with the rumors as well as speculations make it seem like the iPhone 13 will be ideal for carrying out multiple tasks such as getting rid of duplicate videos. We shall have to wait a bit more to see how much of what is circling the web is true. However, we can say for certain that Apple surely will not disappoint with the latest addition to its iPhone line.
