Just a few days ago, the Cupertino-based manufacturer uncovered a few products, including the iPad Pro with the M1 SoC, the all-new iMac with the same processor, the Apple AirTag, and the purple versions of the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 mini. The next station is the company’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC). At the event, we will see the new iOS 15 and maybe some new hardware such as the AirPods Pro 2. However, the biggest event of the company is scheduled to take place in September, where Apple will launch the new iPhone 13.
If the iPhone 12 has been on everyone’s lips because it was going to be the first 5G iPhone, the iPhone 13 series is going to come with a LTPO display supporting 120Hz refresh rate, on-screen fingerprint recognition, and what’s more interesting, it will have a smaller notch.
More importantly, we are going to see the last mini iPhone of the company. The iPhone 12 mini is not selling well. And if believing in the rumors, the manufacturer will discontinue this line starting from 2022. Anyway, the iPhone 13 mini is in works and it has been shown in a video.
iPhone 13 mini To Adopt New Camera Design
The iPhone 12 mini comes with a rear camera that locates the sensors vertically. In this regard, the forthcoming iPhone 13 mini will arrange the lenses diagonally. Though there is still no explanation of this, many think it’s conditioned with larger-size sensors. The video from the ConceptsiPhone YouTube channel showcases a design we’ve been talking about.
However, we still don’t know whether the iPhone 13 mini will come with a smaller notch as its siblings. As a reminder, the iPhone 13’s notch is rumored to be 26.8mm wide compared to 34.83mm on the iPhone 12. But it will be a tad taller and will measure in at 5.35mm compared to 5.3mm on the iPhone 12.
We should also note that the company could shrink the notch by relocating the earpiece speaker. Now, it’s on the top of the notch.
iPhone 13 mini Display
The iPhone 13 Pro will come with an excellent display supporting 120Hz as well as ProMotion feature. The phone will also support for Portrait Mode during video recording. And even it will come with an Always-On Display identical to what is currently available on the Apple Watch.
A tipster Max Weinbach said recently that this Always-On Display will have minimal customizability. ‘Current design basically looks like a toned-down lock screen. Clock and battery charge is always visible. Notifications seem to be displayed using a bar and icons. Upon receiving, the notification will pop up normally except that the screen will not entirely light up. Instead, it will display it just like you’re used to right now, except dimmed down and only temporarily.’
