iPhone 13: Rumors and Facts

iPhone 6 front and back

We expect the iPhone 13 to land in September this year, and from the buzz, we hear fans have a lot to look forward to for the coming generation . In this new phone, we expect to see:

  • a faster processor,

  • a refresh rate of 120Hz on Pro models,

  • improved cameras across all models,

  • and increased storage space.


While we cannot help but wait to see these features in the new iPhone, there are pending rumors in terms of specs and features. These are the things we know and expect for the upcoming iPhone 13. Many will get ready to trade in iPhone that they currently have and preorder the new model.




Because Apple only gives minor changes to its phone devices after 3-4 years, we don't expect a significant visual change to the new iPhone. Bloomberg  tells us that, "Apple isn't planning major changes for this year's iPhone line."

However, rumors suggest that the iPhone could have a thicker and redesigned outlook.

Recent leaks also suggest that this iPhone has a closer look to Google's Pixel 5 with a matte backing and better hold. Although only the Pro models of the iPhone 12 have this kind of backing, we do not know if all the iPhone 13 models will have the same.

Rumors or Facts: We do not expect significant visual changes. However, we hope to see minor tweaks here and there.




All of the iPhone 12 models came with excellent looking screens with full HD resolutions and OLED panels. This was a pleasant development considering the iPhone XR and iPhone 11 came with low-resolution LCD panels. We expect that the iPhone 13 to come with these same features. Including a super-smooth 120Hz ProMotion screen as seen on the iPhone 12.

And thanks to the OLED technology, we can also expect less lock screen take, so when you are not looking at your phone, it saves power. Although features like this are already on Android phones, it will be a nice inclusion to the iPhone 13.

Rumors or Facts: We expect to see the 120Hz ProMotion screen this time.




Over the years, Apple has pride themselves in their Bionic chip. The A14 Bionic chip is comparable to the premium chips in Android phones, such as the new Snapdragon 888 chip. Given that the Bionic chips were a considerable gain for Apple last year, it is expected that the iPhone 13 will come with its A15 Bionic chip.

Rumor has it that the new iPhone might be coming with a storage of 1TB. Although, we do not know if it will be on one or all models

Rumors or Facts: We are expecting to see the usual fast chips that Apple provides. More storage would be a welcomed addition.




Apple usually times the launch and release of its iPhone around September. Except for 2020, the first two iPhone 12's came out in October and the other two in November. This was due to the worldwide pandemic.

As things gradually go back to normal, we expect to see the iPhone 13 around September. Provided unexpected factors do not delay it.

Rumors or Facts: The iPhone 13 is likely to launch and release in September-more specifically around the third week.




We expect to see the same sensor-shift optical image stabilization in the iPhone 13. The cameras allow enhanced low-light snapping performance along with 47 percent bigger primary sensor. Rumors tell that all the iPhone 13 models will have sensor-shift technology on their core sensors.

Unlike the previous camera, we expect to see a flat surface camera that sticks out from the phone's frame. We hope the camera will not only be balanced but covered totally by lasting sapphire glass.


We have also heard that it could have portrait abilities in video and blurry backgrounds. However, it could come with a wide camera that includes autofocus and aperture. Giving it a great deal of improvement.

Rumors or Facts: We already have fantastic cameras in the iPhone 12: we can only expect things to get better in the iPhone 13.

There are four different devices and colors on the new iPhone line-up:

  • the standard iPhone 13

  • iPhone 13 Pro

  • iPhone 13 Pro Max

  • the iPhone Mini.

They all have a nice aluminum finish, and it gives it a sleek look. The new 120Hz display is nice, and the performance is excellent. The battery life of the iPhone 13 has been impressive, especially on the bigger iPhone 13s.


The 13 Mini keeps the same design as last year. Although it has added a few extra grams, the phone looks, feels, and operates almost the same way, so it feels a little dense to hold. It said a quarter millimeter of extra thickness.

With the slight upgrades, does this series of iPhones feel worth it? Here is our look into the new iPhone 13 series.


Design and Size


Compared to the iPhone 12 lineup, the new iPhone 13 is heavier and thicker. Apple even included a notched display on each of them to have a selfie camera on. However, it was confirmed during the iPhone 13 event that the iPhone 12's notch is 20 percent bigger than on the iPhone 13.

The screen sizes range from 5.4-inch to 6.7-inch. The Mini is 5.4-inch, the standard 13 and Pro are 6.1-inches, and the Pro Max is 6.7-inches.

As expected on the iPhone 13 Mini, the camera has significantly changed. It now has a diagonally situated camera lenses, unlike the previous iPhone Mini.




The displays of the iPhone 13 are all similar. However, only the iPhone 13 Pro Models come with the 120hz display. Hertz on a screen determines how smooth or fast your screen experience is when you scroll through web pages or apps. This upgrade in display makes the Pro Models earn their higher price point.

The new iPhone 13 Pro Max has a new SuperRetina XDR display with ProMotion that offers an incredible display experience: letting you game with ease and scroll smoothly.

Apple devices are expensive to repair, but you can sell broken iPhone to us and buy another one, if it becomes defective.




There is no longer a 64GB option for this new line-up, which means better storage options. The iPhone 13 Mini and iPhone 13 now come in storage options of

  • 128GB

  • 256GB

  • 512GB

While the Pro Models come with a 1 TB storage option—which is the first of its kind.




The standard iPhone 13 and Mini have a new diagonal camera layout. This was not changed to differentiate the models. Rather, it was altered to rearrange the camera lenses to fit the sensor. Which means sharper low-light photos when combined with the sensor-shift feature, before only available on the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

There is also a new video recording feature called Cinematic Mode, which automatically creates depth effects and focus transitions similar to actual movies. The HDR 4 feature now recognizes more than three people in a photo and enhances lighting, contrasts, and skin tones for each one.




The 13 Mini has 1.5 hours more battery life than the 12 Mini, and the iPhone 13 has 2.5 hours more than the iPhone 12. This improved battery life is due to iOS 15, the new A15 Bionic chip, and a bigger battery.

Apple claims the 13 Mini and standard 13 can run for up to 19 hours of use. The Pro is said to run for up to 22 hours while the 13 Pro Max runs for 28 hours. The Pro Max has the most improved battery in all of the iPhones.

We expected a battery boost in the new iPhone 13 – both in size and capacity. You get to work, play, create and watch on your phone for hours without needing a charge. You can multi-task for hours with all-day battery life.


Final Verdict


We have reason to believe that the iPhone 13 might also come with an additional feature of an in-display fingerprint sensor. And asides from security, the fingerprint sensor could also be useful for augmented reality and Animoji. Along with these additions, there might be a removal of the charging port allowing just wireless charging for all the new iPhones.


With all the new features being questioned, it's exciting to see new tech on the horizon. Apple is such a staple as a brand that their new phones always bring a wave of excitement and speculation. We are looking forward to the new iPhone 13 to see how factual the rumors will be.

iPhone 13 Event: Let’s Discuss What’s New

The expected and anticipated Apple event took place in September of 2021. Many things were announced in the line-up, such as the iPhone 13, new iPad and a few other things. The events are usually huge and glorious, and there were lots of new updates for the latest Apple Series. Here are our big take-aways from the event this year.


The New iPad


The new iPad has a new baseline, and I think it is the best thing in the tablet world. The 10.2 inch stays the same, but inside it, there is a total newness. There is a 12MP ultra-wide selfie that has the center stage like the Mini.

New iPad users will find it as accessible as other familiar Apple products. And while using this iPad, you will be getting the iPadOS 15, with a base storage of 64GB.

Aside from the standard iPad, all Apple iPads come with different chips and USBC.


The New iPad Mini


This is most likely the most significant redesign of the event. The new iPad Mini has been redesigned in every way, and it is now looking a lot like a small iPad Air. Its metallic body comes in four different colors, with a curved design at the corners. And unlike the last iPad Mini, it has just one camera at the back, and it is on a bump.

It is interesting to note that the iPad Air will need to be updated because now the iPad Mini has a new, upgraded chip. If you have an older one, you can sell iPad to us for cash and use it towards the new model.

What Comes with it
  • a beautiful 8.3-inch display

  • USBC

  • A15 Bionic

  • 5G support

  • thin bezels

  • a 12MP camera

  • a front ultra-wide camera

    • with center stages

All these fantastic features are in the new iPad Mini, and it fits perfectly in hand.


The New Apple Watch Series 7


Rumors had it that the Series 7 would come with a square design, but that was not the case.  The new Apple Watch comes in the same shape as before but with a bigger screen. The all-around bezels are 40 percent thinner than the Series 6, and the screen is curvier and flows slightly over the edge.

It still has the same sensors, chips, button, and digital crown. It charges 33 percent faster and comes with a USB-C charger. If you want to upgrade you can sell Apple Watch from previous generations for cash to us.


iPhone 13


There are significant similarities between the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 12 series. But majorly, there are two updates which are the cameras and the display.



What Has Changed

All the new iPhones have brighter screens which is wonderful for HDR and visibility. But iPhone 13 comes with 1000 nits, and the 13 Pros comes with a 1200 nits’ peak. They all have a 20 percent smaller notch. The face ID and selfie camera are still in the same place but compressed to a smaller notch. The iPhone 13 is thicker and heavier to accommodate the same IP 68, ceramic shield, and flat side materials as last year.


iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro max finally have an added 120Hz display. It is a pro-motion display with a possible refresh rate from 10 Hz to 120 Hz. This makes it a real differentiator between the 13 and the 13 Pro.



What Has Changed

The new cameras have a diagonal layout, but the bumps of the camera are a little larger. The actual iPhone 13- both the regular and mini- have the same 12MP dual camera and bigger sensors everywhere.

However, there is a sensor-shift optical image stabilization on the primary sensor. The Pro and Pro Max have similar cameras like the base iPhone 13, but they have higher resolution capabilities. However, each of the cameras comes with a night mode; the telephoto lens has gone up from 2.5x to 3x.


There are two new features on the video mode: the ProRes mode and the Cinematic mode. We can now shoot with 4K 30 FPS ProRes video on the iPhone Pro models. And the Cinematic mode has a bunch of focus tricks and tools to help videographers with their projects.


There are two significant updates on the iPhone 13 Series:

  • a new A15 Bionic chip,

  • a 5 core GPU in the Pro models

  • 4 core GPU in the regular phones



What Has Changed

The battery life of this iPhone 13 Series are slightly better as they have gone from 1.5 to 2.5 hours of use.
