The number of rumors about the next iPhone is increasing, and 2021 is no exception. With the Spring Loaded event on April 20, rumors are circulating about the next big iPhone. The iPhone 12 family is six months old and since then there have been a lot of leaks. And speculations about the next iPhone, which known as the iPhone 13. (Or it could be the “iPhone”, like the iPhone 12S or the fourth number. General iPad. It’s the iPhone 21 because it’s 2021?)
Latest and persistent rumors about the iPhone 13 cameras, specs, and features. And let us know the rumored cost of the iPhone 13, possible release date. And how to compare the iPhone 13 to the iPhone 12, Has got more Intel. I also found out what the iPhone 13 needs for success. Consider this iPhone 13 wish list.
And to be clear, these are rumors. Nothing is certain until Apple announces it. Some of these rumors are from last month. Others are many months or years old and synchronized.
The iPhone 13 can have a large battery
The first rumor is that the iPhone 13 will have a battery bigger than iPhone 12. iPhone 12 has good battery life. In use, both the iPhone 12 and the 12 Pro run for a day without any hassle. In our battery test of running looped video in airplane mode. The 12 iPhone Pro lasted 15 hours and 56 minutes; the iPhone 12 lasted 17 hours and 14 minutes.
But that’s far from the best battery life we’ve seen. The Samsung Galaxy S21, which has a 4,500 mAh battery, lasted 18 hours and 3 minutes in the same test. The Galaxy S21 Ultra and its 5000 mAh battery lasted for 22 hours and 57 minutes. And both of these phones have high refresh rate performance. That can charge the battery more.
Although Apple never reveals the capacity of batteries inside the iPhone. Sites like IFX IT. That sells kits to replace batteries, say that both the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are one. Uses a 2,815-mAh battery. Apple gets so much life from this small battery. Thanks to the performance of its A-series processors and iOS.
Now imagine putting these utilities in a large physical battery. This is a rumor that I hope is true and think the next iPhone needed. I mean, everyone wants better battery life.
Pro Motion may appear on the iPhone 13 screen
As of 2017, the iPad Pro has a 120Hz refresh rate. Now that panel is LCD, but rumors have pointed to the iPhone 13, which has a higher refresh rate. For years, many of us have wanted to see this feature on the iPhone. At different price points, there are several phones with high refresh rate screens. Such as the One 300 One plus Nord N10 5G, which has a performance of 90 Hz. The new $ 800 Galaxy S21 and 200 1,200 S21 Ultra each have a 120Hz display. Last week, Asus launched the ROG Phone 5, which has a 144 Hz screen. And last month, the Red Magic 6 phone announced with a 165 Hz screen. And the iPhone 12 has a 60Hz screen.
Why do you need a higher refresh rate? That’s all there is to it. This makes clean generality aside, animations and graphics look sharper, dynamic blur diminishes. And games (especially those designed for higher refresh rate screens) look deeper and more vivid. Think about how great a 120Hz Apple Arcade game can look.
The next iPhone needs a 120 Hz screen, at least the “Pro” models do. This will be another “Pro” feature. That helps distinguish between high-end iPhone Pro models for the permanent and mini versions.
There are new rumors that the “Pro” model will feature LTPO. LTPO means low-temperature polycrystalline oxide. The LTPO display can switch between refresh rates on the without the need for more display hardware. The Galaxy S21 Ultra, uses an LTPO display. That Samsung claims have allowed it to shine without using too much power.
The next iPhone has no port
There is a constant rumor that the iPhone 13 will not have a power port. Ever since Apple got rid of the headphone jack in 2016 with the help of the iPhone 7. People have speculated that Apple will one day make a portless phone. In December, credible rumor monger Ming-Chi Kou insisted that Apple would release the iPhone in 2021 without a port.
The launch of the Magsafe Charging on Apple’s iPhone 12 makes it easy to imagine such a port-free future. But, in its current form, the MagSafe is 15 watts in charging. Compared to 20 watts, you get Lighting to USB-C cable and a wall charger. OnePlus has a wireless charger called Warp Charge 30 which can charge from 30 watts.
To be a viable alternative to the physical charging cable, not only would the next version of MagSafe need to be more powerful. But Apple would also need to settle for some data sharing that currently has the Lightning port. Apple is hoping for 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, and its U1 Ultra-Wide Band Chip to replace data sharing? Or there’s a version of MagSafe with a power port dongle? Who knows?
Apple could create something like the smart connector found in the current iPad Pro in the next iPhone. While all attention focused on the USB-C port on the iPad Pro. There are three flat metal connectors on the back of the iPad. When you use the magic keyboard devices with the iPad Pro. It connects to the iPad via smart connectors and magnets. You can plug a USB-C cable into the magic keyboard to charge the iPad Pro. Most days during epidemics, I used a magic keyboard to charge my iPad via a smart connector.
The next iPhone will have a “Smart Mag Safe” charge? Even if this rumor is true, Apple doesn’t have to remove the phone’s last port right now.
New cameras may appear on the next iPhone
The biggest feature and the biggest rumors revolve around the camera on the iPhone. And here’s a bunch of rumors pointing to the widespread adoption of new lenses. New camera sensors, and sensor-based stability across the iPhone line.
Currently, the iPhone 12 Pro has the same selfie, wide and ultra-wide cameras as the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini. The Pro has a 2x telephone camera, but not as much as the 2.5x in the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The iPhone 13 Pro can get a big sensor for its wide camera. This rumor does not say whether it will be exactly like the iPhone 13 Pro Max. But the larger sensor could add sensor-based stability, which is currently only available on the iPhone 12 Pro Max model.
The iPhone 13 Pro rumored to have a telephone camera like or like the 13 Pro Max. This means that the next “Pro” model will be closer to the Pro Max model. While this year, the 12 and 12 Pros are very similar.
There are rumors about a new Ultra-Wide camera on either the iPhone 13 or the iPhone 14. (Yes, there are already rumors about the next iPhone!) The Ultra-Wide camera mounted on the 13 may have lower light performance and a faster Aperture Lens Currently. The Ultra-Wide lens is f2.4, but the new lens f1.8, which will help improve low light performance.
Camera hardware, the iPhone 13, the regular Pro model could use these rumored upgrades.
Touch ID may return to the iPhone
The iPhone 13 can get a fingerprint reader under the display. Since the first Android phone came out with a fingerprint reader on one screen. People speculated that the under-display Touch ID sensor would be a way for some people to overcome the frustration of using Face ID. And It was before the epidemic of facial masks (an everyday thing).
Currently, there are two types of screen fingerprint sensors in Android phones. Phones such as the OnePlus 8T and Motorola Edge Plus have optical in-screen sensors. Phones such as the Galaxy S21 series also have ultrasonic fingerprint readers via Qualcomm.
If the iPhone 13 gets a fingerprint reader on the screen, it’s not clear if it will replace the Face ID or something else. Rumor has it that Apple, with the example of the 2019 patent. Also hinted that the iPhone could unlock anywhere on the screen with a fingerprint touch instead of a single sensor on an Android phone.
If Apple could make the ultrasonic sensor as easy to use. And dependable as the old-school Touch ID sensor found on the iPhone SE. It’s not hard to imagine them on the iPhone. And if Touch ID paired with Face ID, you can have even more ways to keep your phone safe and accessible. Alternative biometric security measures must the iPhone.
iPhone 13 can shoot portrait mode video
The next iPhone can record portrait mode video. You may be familiar with the portrait format. That allows you to take photos and give the image an artistic, blurred background. The idea is that it mimics what a large sensor mirror or DSLR camera can do with a sharp aperture lens. On the iPhone, portrait mode limited to photos only, but there are many Android phones. Such as the Samsung Galaxy Line. That can record portrait mode video (or live focus video) – that leaves the background in your article. Can fade Focus. In my experience, the results hit or miss.
Apple can do with portrait format video and how it handles all the processing needed to separate the preview and blur the background. The rumor also hints at the ability to change the depth of field (the amount of background that blurred) after the video has already shot. It would be especially cool if it included Apple’s portrait lighting lights. And the ability to edit them after the fact. While portrait mode will be as much fun as video, it doesn’t need an iPhone.
The iPhone 13 could be better at astrophotography
The last rumor to highlight is the new camera feature. The iPhone 13 can get a better astronomical mode. You can mount the iPhone on a tripod and, in the darkest conditions, extend the night mode capture to 30 seconds. Under the right sky and weather, you can get a wonderful picture of the starry sky. But when you look at what Google Pixel Astro can do for photography, it leaves much to desire on the iPhone.
If this rumor is true, astrophotography will still be active in night mode. But can you extend the time by more than 30 seconds to capture a better night sky or moon. Or use computational photography? This could be another feature that only lives on “Pro” models, as Apple Pro currently does. This is not a desired feature, but it is your strength.
