iPhone 13 : Rumour Roundup

The iPhone 13 is swirled in mystery but thanks to alleged leaks from Apple analysts we can get a pretty good idea of what to expect:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Design: The new design of the iPhone 12 will stick around but we’ll see some new colour options and finishes. The phone may be 0.26mm thicker to accommodate a larger battery.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Display: We can expect a high refresh rate of 120hz or even 240hz according to a patent filing. This will be enabled thanks to tech called LPTO. It allows OLED panels to run at very high and low refresh rates. Another benefit is that the display may be always on for notifications.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Notch: Mac Otakara claims the true depth camera system that enables Face ID will be smaller and the ear piece will move up to the bezel. This should result in a much smaller notch.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ports: Rumours suggest Apple will remove the port entirely this year. Ming-Chi Kuo says that won’t be the case. Apple will add stronger magnets to enhance MagSafe. USB C support is unlikely.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Touch ID: We may see the return of Touch ID but embedded in the display. This will compliment Face ID but won’t replace it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Chip: We can expect modest performance improvements thanks to the A15 chip and enhanced 5G with the X60 modem from Qualcomm.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Camera: Big upgrades are on the way for the ultra wide camera. Sensor shift stabilisation is rumoured and a larger sensor. LiDAR is expected across the range.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
