As anonymous insiders say, Apple has already asked iPhone manufacturers to produce 90 million iPhone 13 smartphones. That’s roughly 15 million more units than in 2019 and 2020. It seems that Apple anticipates that the first post-vaccination iPhone model will be more demanded than iPhone 12.

The Leaked Updates

It’s already clear that the next-gen iPhone won’t differ from the latest mode very much. It will be an incremental update with a better processor, display, and camera onboard. All the new models will feature 5G as well. The codenames for the upcoming models are D16, D17, D63, and D64 that match iPhone 13 (5.4-inch), iPhone 13 mini (6.1-inch), iPhone 13 Pro (6.1-inch), and iPhone 13 Pro Max (6.7-inch).

Insiders also mention that at least one of the upcoming iPhones will feature a new LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) screen. The technology allows the display to alternate refresh rates, depending on the type of content, to save energy. LTPOs have already demonstrated excellent results in Apple Watch and flagship devices by Oppo, Samsung, and OnePlus. Additionally, the new devices will feature the IGZO (indium gallium zinc oxide) for saving even more energy.

Other functional improvements may include an in-display fingerprint scanner for the fans of the good old round button as well as a reduced notch. Finally, the main camera may receive better optical zoom and stabilization to provide users with more flexibility for video content creation.

Earlier This Time

Unlike iPhone 12, the presentation of the new generation is scheduled for September instead of October. All due to the speedy supply chain recovery.
