In about three months, Apple’s previous schedule should follow a new generation of iPhone on the market. A smaller notch for Face ID, slightly modified designs and larger batteries have been mentioned so far. There are also rumors for the coming year: an iPhone SE with 5G and a cheaper “iPhone 14 Max” with 6.7 inches.
got the ball rolling Sonny Dickson on Twitter with an image showing four dummies of the “iPhone 13” used by manufacturers of protective cases in preparation for new products. The picture shows the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini with a slightly different design for the rear dual camera. This retains its previous equipment with two lenses, but the cameras for wide and ultra wide angle are no longer positioned directly one above the other on the left side, but face each other in the upper left and lower right corner of the “camera island”.

The rings around the three cameras of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max appear slightly rounded, after a flattened border has been used so far and the actual glass even protrudes a little beyond this ring. On the other hand, the glass of the iPhone 13 Pro (Max) seems to be slightly recessed in the housing. The dummies also suggest that only the Pro models will again be equipped with a lidar sensor. The other smartphones only show the LED flash on the right.
Smaller notch suspected
on one other picture shows Dickson the iPhone 13 family again from behind, but also from the front in protective cases from an unknown manufacturer. Compared to the current Apple smartphones, the notch, which houses the front camera and sensors for Face ID, looks a bit smaller. The fact that Apple could reduce the notch has been circulating through the rumor mill for a long time, but cannot be conclusively confirmed.
iPhone 13 family should get larger batteries
Dickson also notes that the iPhone 13 Pro Max seems slightly larger than the iPhone 12 Pro Max. However, changes to the display diagonals are expected. However, larger batteries could have an impact on this, or at least on the weight, which the often accurate analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, among others, promises. Struck in the same vein @L0vetodream on Twitter in early June, which also repeatedly brings concrete information to light. In his tweet, he quotes a post from a Chinese forum, which in turn shows database entries from the Chinese battery manufacturer Sunwoda Electronic. The batteries of the iPhone 13 family, which are expected to grow by up to 18 percent, should be on display. This could be a measure by Apple to cushion the additional consumption of the 120 Hz displays that are expected for the new Pro smartphones.

According to the entries, the battery of the iPhone 13 mini should increase to 2,406 mAh (instead of 2,227 mAh), that of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro to 3,095 mAh (instead of 2,815 mAh) and that of the iPhone 13 Pro Max to 4,352 mAh (instead of 3,687 mAh). come.
iPhone SE is set to get 5G
However, the current rumors go beyond this year’s iPhone 13 family and are already dealing with next year’s Apple smartphones. In a Notices to Investors Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects a new iPhone SE for the first half of 2022. The next iPhone SE should adopt the current design, but be equipped with a new Apple silicon processor and also master 5G for the first time. The smartphone is said to be Apple’s cheapest entry into the 5G standard so far, after the iPhone 12 mini has occupied this position since last year.
iPhone 14 Max instead of iPhone 14 mini
Large smartphones should also be cheaper from Apple. The company is said to be the last to offer a 5.4-inch iPhone mini this year. In the second half of 2022, iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max with 6.1 and 6.7 inches as well as iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max with 6.1 and 6.7 inches will be presented instead. According to Ming Chi Kuo The iPhone 14 Max is said to be the cheapest 6.7-inch Apple smartphone to date and is expected to cost less than $900. The iPhone 12 Pro Max is currently the only option for a 6.7-inch Apple smartphone and costs at least $1,099.
Ming-Chi Kuo also assumes that Apple will upgrade the main camera of the iPhone 14 family from the current 12 to 48 megapixels and potentially also integrate a new Touch ID sensor developed in-house into the display.
