- The upcoming iPhone 13 Pro models said to have texturised back panel for better grip.
- New astrophotography mode also rumoured for the iPhone 13 series.
- Rumours suggest a stronger magnet array for MagSafe tech.
iPhone 13 or the iPhone 12S series has been featured in several leaks and drop some new possible details of the 2021 iPhones. The latest one claims that the new iPhones may feature refined matte back for offering a better grip and maybe texturised as well. The tipster adds that the new design change may be limited for the Pro models. The latest leak also claims that the new iPhones may finally sport the 120Hz ProMotion display tech seen on the iPad Pro.
EverythingApplePro YouTube channel has posted a new video and cited new details via tipster Max Weinbach for the upcoming iPhone 13 series.
In terms of the design, the video says that Apple will be making minimal changes this year. Sources of Weinbach claim that the Cupertino-based giant will be using the same chassis as last year and this will mean that the iPhone 13 series may look a lot like the iPhone 12 series overall in terms of design.
The video adds that the new matte material at the back may make the iPhone 13 Pro models feel more like Pixel devices that are easier to grip and use on a daily basis. Further, the video claims that Apple will be using the new LTPO tech on the Pro models, which we already see on the new Apple Watch.
One of the biggest features being touted in the video is the always-on display. However, it is being said that the always-on display may minimal customisability at release. According to the details, the always-on display may take some cues from the Apple Watch Series 6 always-on display feature and keep showing time and battery icon on the screen.
In case a user gets a notification, the portion of the display will be activated to save the device's battery life.
"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 just like you're used to right now, except dimmed down and only temporally," tipster Max Weinbach claims.
Some of the other claims made by Weinbach include a stronger magnet array for MagSafe charging tech. There's also the astrophotography mode that's being said to be activated the moment users point the phone to the sky.
Considering nothing has been confirmed by Apple, and these are very early days of iPhone leaks for the year, we suggest readers take the leaked details with a pinch of salt.
