iPhone 13 Pro specs and features
--As per the previous and current reports, the iPhone 13 models will receive minor design changes while the overall design will remain the same.
--Some reports suggest a smaller display notch that has even been subjected to a few render leaks. Apple has achieved this by placing the earpiece in the top bezel. Front panels of the upcoming iPhone 13 models had leaked a while ago, confirming the same.
--While there's still a triple camera setup like the iPhone 12 Pro on the rear, the housing module appears to be a tad bit bigger. Through which we can predict that iPhone 13 Pro will feature bigger camera sensors.
--The iPhone 13 Pro is said to feature a 6.1-inch display which is the same as the iPhone 12 Pro. This device measures 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.6 mm, which is slightly thicker to incorporate a bigger battery, we suppose.
--Several reports have popped up to suggest that the upcoming iPhone 13 Pro models will feature LTPO displays with support for a 120Hz high refresh rate. For your information, LTPO is a superior and power-efficient backplane technology that can switch the individual pixel on display on and off. Thus, allowing for better battery life on the Pro models.
--Reports suggest that these LTPO displays are being developed either by Samsung or LG.
--In addition to that, reports have been making rounds around the inclusion of an in-display fingerprint scanner. This will work in unison with the Face-ID to improve authentication on the upcoming iPhones.
--Like every year, we will see a new chipset, this time, it will be the A15 Bionic chipset powering all iPhone 13 models. This will be built on the same 5nm manufacturing process as the A14 Bionic. A report suggests that this chipset is being built by TSMC and will begin production in May. This chipset is expected to bump up the performance while being power efficient.
--New iPhones may see a major upgrade in terms of wireless connectivity. Apple's settlement with Qualcomm allows it to use Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon X60 5G modem. This modem will expectedly be integrated into the upcoming A15 Bionic chipset hence, saving a lot of battery life.
--The iPhone 12 Pro models had excellent camera setups, and the same holds for the iPhone 11 series. Meaning engineers at Apple will have a tough time making the camera on the upcoming lineup a notch better. From what we heard, a six-element Ultra-wide lens will be used on iPhone 13 Pro models. The current iPhone 12 Pro setup features a five-element ultrawide lens on the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro max. This should bring better image and auto-focus capability to the respective devices.
--Another interesting rumour suggests that Apple is looking for suppliers for a "folded lens" camera that will improve the iPhone 13's optical camera zoom.
--Further, all iPhone 13 models are supposed to get an upgraded ultrawide lens and LiDAR sensors. Improved Sensor-Shift Stabilisation will also be seen on iPhone 13 Pro models.
--The upcoming iOS 15 is also expected to bring a few improvements. Recent reports have suggested that the upcoming version of iOS will get a major change to the notifications panel. This upgrade will allow users to set different notification preferences based on current status, for instance, if you're sleeping, you may get silent notifications, whereas sound notifications when awake.
--iMessage is also supposed to get an update, however, details around the same are currently scarce. Moving forward, iOS 15 will allow users to change more default apps.
--Widgets that received a huge upgrade with iOS 14 may also see a few improvements. In addition to that, Apple is planning to introduce a new Home Screen for the iPad. Users will be able to place widgets anywhere on the Home Screen, plus an entire app grid will be replaceable with widgets.
--In another interesting update, Apple has added iOS and iPadOS support for PS5 and Xbox Series X controllers on iOS 14.5. Through which we can predict that Apple may bring more gaming-specific features on iOS 15 to entice smartphone gamers.
--Finally, Apple will bring several features to iOS 15 to improve the security game of upcoming iPhones.
