Starting with the iPhone 13 series, which debuts this fall, there are four models with screens the same size as the current lineup, all with a small notch and a Lightning port. Kuo says Apple wants to move to a portless iPhone with a MagSafe connector, but the technology isn’t mature enough yet. I was able to see the first portless iPhone in 2022 or 2023 at the latest.
All iPhone 13 models are equipped with a new ultra-wide camera (6p f / 1.8 lens and autofocus (currently 5p f / 2.4 fixed focus)). iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max have a LiDAR scanner and a 120Hz compatible LTPO display. Qualcomm’s 5nm X60M 5G modem will be incorporated into the 13 series.
Apple will increase the battery capacity of all iPhone 13 models thanks to space-saving innovations such as embedding a SIM slot in the mainboard. All iPhone 13 models are a bit heavier due to the increased battery capacity.
For future planning. Apple’s first foldable iPhone will have a 7.5-inch to 8-inch screen and will be available in 2023.
Apple is reported to abolish the Face ID notch on punchhole selfie cameras in 2022. An iPhone with an under-display Touch ID and a periscope zoom camera may arrive in 2022, but may appear in 2023.
Finally, Kuo says Apple could replace the iPhone 11 with an iPhone for less than $ 600 in the first half of 2023. This provides Face ID, 5G, and a 6-inch screen of similar size.
