Rumors and leaks about iPhone 13 release date and price have already started circulating for a long time, although the iPhone 12 series hasn’t passed much since its launch.
Of course, it is difficult to predict what the American giant Apple is planning because it always surprises us with what is new and unexpected.
But some early leaks of the iPhone 13 reveal some potential changes that are expected to impress users well, which we will address in this article, and we will present the technical specifications and expected prices of the iPhone 12 and many new technologies that the company is working on, so follow us.
Leaks indicate that the company may offer at least one iPhone 13 model with a port-free design. Why not, now with wireless charging, Bluetooth-enabled AirPods and many other wireless technologies, it’s even easier.
In addition to that, we can also expect some big upgrades in terms of screen, camera and battery capacity.
Here are all the details expected so far in terms of specifications, price, launch date, the most important developments and information we got about the 2021 Apple series.
iPhone 13 release date
For ten years, we have always seen Apple release its phones in the last quarter of the year, specifically, in the month of September. Then there were some problems in 2020, forcing Apple to postpone the launch of the iPhone 12 to October.
With the exception of 2020, Apple is very inclined to launch the iPhone 13 in September 2021, according to the usual routine.
Technical analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated that production of the upcoming series will run on the usual schedule, and that we can “expect the launch date of the iPhone 13 by September 2021 without delay.”

Here you go, a list of leaked pictures of iPhone 13 with its new design
iPhone 13 phone models
Most reports indicate that the American giant (Apple) will launch its next series of phones (2021) with four different models, which will come as follows:-
- iPhone 13 mini – has a screen measuring 5.4 inches
- iPhone 13 – 6.1 inch screen
- iPhone 13 Pro – 6.1 inch screen
- iPhone 13 Pro Max – which includes the largest screen in the series, and the screen measures 6.7 inches, which is also the most expensive among the phones of this lineup.
The company is launching two “low-priced” and two advanced models featuring Cupertino’s camera technology and falling into the leading category, the 2021 flagship phones and the competition for the Samsung Galaxy S21 and Huawei Mate 50 Pro.
Nothing is consistent though – if the iPhone 12 Mini fails, we could see Apple abandon the 13 Mini but the most anticipated reality is the launch of four different models.
will iPhone 13 have a charge port?
We recently got some information about the expected design of the iPhone 13 series, which helped us design images that show the expected shape of the upcoming phone from Apple for the current year 2021.
Imagine if the iPhone 12 series were the last generation of Apple devices to feature a physical charging port on every phone.
It’s a shocking idea, but Apple could start phasing out Lightning ports starting with one of the iPhone 13 models in order to boot into the future.
Instead, his tweet from blogger Jon Prosser makes it clear that there will be one iPhone without ports in 2021, as he says:-
Apple will follow suit and all phones will be released in the future without any ports.
The analyst also adds that the company will never use a USB-C port, dashing the hopes of fans of the brand (Apple) that it will adopt the same standards as Android phones and the vast majority of other modern electronic devices that use the common port.
The idea of launching an iPhone without a port may seem a little silly, but ironically it’s become more likely since the European Union took steps to force all phone manufacturers to use a common port for charging. The Lightning port has been a hallmark of the company since 2012, when it was introduced alongside the iPhone 5.
The most prominent reports indicate that Apple will not back down from this matter at all, in order to direct the focus towards wireless chargers and all other products in order to try to market and sell these accessories well>
On the other hand, we think that Samsung will go in the same direction but first wait for Apple to start, so don’t worry about the Samsung S21 series phones expected to be launched soon, because it will come with the charging port but you have to worry about the upcoming phones after the S21 🙂 .
With the iPhone 12, Apple introduced the new MagSafe wireless charger. It also raised the maximum wireless charging speed to 15W.
MagSafe appears to be the logical development for future portless Apple devices, and it offers a wealth of options such as new premium leather cases.
But what else can a port-free iPhone allow? In theory, eliminating the largest hole in the device will improve durability and resistance to water, dust, and dirt.
It could also help make phones thinner. Despite the gigantic battery sizes we’re hearing about these days at all companies and the advent of power-hungry 5G networks in particular, it’s also possible that iPhones in 2021 will be bigger and possibly thicker than those of today.
iPhone 13 specifications
Apple’s settlement documents with Qualcomm reveal that Apple has plans to use the Qualcomm X60 5G modem in upcoming iPhones, among which the iPhone 13 series will likely be. This is important because the 5nm X60 modem is smaller, faster and less power consuming.
In addition, it should better support 5G networks, as the modem can combine mmWave and sub-6GHz 5G networks simultaneously.
In July of 2019, Apple bought Intel’s modem maker division for $1 billion. This was the only logical measure for the US company, as it marked an end to the tension that had been in and out of court with Qualcomm for years over patent disputes that had left some iPhones at a disadvantage to support networks as well as contemporary Android phones.
In the end, both companies reached a legal settlement, but it is clear that Apple wants to control its own destiny rather than be indebted to a supplier with which it has a weak relationship at best.
By the time the iPhone 13 is released, that division of Intel will be under Apple’s leadership for nearly two and a half years, making 2021 the earliest possible time to launch the first phones with the new modem.
However, some skepticism remains, and the Fast Company recently noted that modems take a long time to develop and undergo a lengthy approval process. It looks like 2022 would be a safer bet, although the Fast Company source you cited believes 2023 is actually a more realistic timeframe.
iPhone 13 battery, cameras, photography and new changes
The iPhone 12 series didn’t impress us in terms of battery life testing. Only the iPhone 12 Pro Max liked it somewhat due to its large battery. However, a new report from Ming-Chi Kuo talking about the so-called soft battery technology in the iPhone 13 says that the upcoming iPhones could offer more battery capacity without increasing the actual design itself.
Apple could also decide to offer similar capacity in thinner, lighter designs.
Aside from the battery, we haven’t heard much about all the iPhone 13 series phones in full yet, but there are many leaks that the iPhone 13 Pro and the Pro Max model will both come with an upgraded ultra-wide-angle lens, the lens consists of 6 elements and provides the possibility of laser autofocus .
It is worth noting that the current iPhone 12 Pro models feature an ultra-wide-angle lens that consists of only 5 elements.
One interesting rumor that has surfaced is that Apple is looking at suppliers for a “foldable lens” camera that will improve the optical zoom of the iPhone 13 camera. The Telephoto periscope sensor can be positioned vertically, rather than horizontally, which means that the telephoto sensor can be positioned vertically, rather than horizontally. Apple can increase the optical zoom without increasing the size of the phone.
In fact, this design is most commonly used by other phone makers, including Samsung and Huawei, when increasing their optical zoom capabilities. Although it is still unclear which iPhone 13 models will get an improved optical zoom.
Various other reports claim that the iPhone 13 camera will get a major upgrade as well in terms of specifications. Analyst Ross Young expected Apple to use larger sensors in upcoming phones.
Larger sensors mean larger pixels increase light penetration, and larger pixels mean better image quality. Unfortunately, it is not clear which phones will benefit from this technology.
Furthermore, Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst, has predicted that the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max will have larger holes in the ultrawide sensors. Kuo says that both phones will come with an aperture of f/1.8, higher than the f/2.4 aperture currently in use.
In addition, that sensor will be a six-element lens, which means more light enters through the camera and better image quality.
Kuo also says that the optical stabilization feature found in the primary camera of the iPhone 12 Pro Max will also be present in the iPhone 13 Pro Max, along with the iPhone 13 Pro. It is worth noting that a fixed lens means better photos especially in low light conditions.
iPhone 13 Flip : Is it real?
There is no evidence at this point to suggest that Apple will release a foldable iPhone in 2021 alongside the iPhone 13.
Although that possibility is getting stronger with each series that is launched, especially as foldable devices are becoming more popular and affordable.
Apple has a number of patents to its name regarding phones with foldable screens, so we wouldn’t be surprised if Apple’s foldable phone launches next year.
Reports in the past two years have claimed that Apple has experimented with some foldable screens for future use, hinting that Apple certainly wants to be in that category of phones. Some of the projected images we’ve seen look pretty cool but in the end they’re nothing more than guesswork at this early stage.
Now that we’re past the launch of the iPhone 12 series and starting to look forward to the upcoming specs in earnest, we’ll likely have a better idea soon as to whether the foldable phone will arrive soon or if it’s still some time away. At the moment, that phone is only a guess.
Storage capacity won’t improve in iPhone 13 phones
A new report from TrendForce indicates that the storage space will not be extended on the iPhone 13 (or iPhone 12s), according to information from TrendForce, the 2021 iPhones do not seem to change much, especially when it comes to their storage space.
Among the novelties of this series, we can expect a design similar to the previous series, but with a smaller notch, a 120Hz screen (at least on the Pro models) and some improvements in the camera department, such as the addition of ultra-wide-angle autofocus for the Pro versions. Anyway, that’s what TrendForce’s latest report suggests, confirming previous rumors about it.
When it comes to storage space, one should not expect too much. According to recent leaks, the storage capacities of the new phones will remain the same as their counterparts in 2020.
As a reminder, the iPhone 12 and 12 mini offer 64, 128, or 256 GB of storage, while the Pro and Pro Max models have 128, 256, or 512 GB of storage.
