According to this render by Twitter user @RendersbyIan, Apple may be adding a new Sunset Gold color to the iPhone 13 lineup.
Will Apple’s upcoming iPhone be given a stylish makeover? The iPhone 13 could have an improved design with a smaller notch, bigger camera bump, and a variety of intriguing new color options including bubblegum pink, matte black, and a bronzy sunset gold, but we won’t know for sure until its likely arrival in September.
Apple is also expected to release four new iPhones: the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Plus.
We don’t expect a huge design change for the iPhone 13 based on the speculations and leaks we’ve seen so far; in terms of models, cameras, size, and pricing, it’ll most likely be comparable to the iPhone 12. (Learn more about the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13’s predicted performance.) However, there are a few noticeable modifications and additions to the iPhone 13 that could make it a lot easier to use. Here’s what we currently know.
Sizes of iPhone 13
The following are the sizes of the iPhone 13 that have been rumored:
5.4-inch iPhone 13 Mini
6.1-inch iPhone 13
6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro
6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max
These dimensions are identical to those of the iPhone 12, but they may be somewhat thicker (more below).
Colors on the iPhone 13
There haven’t been many trustworthy leaks about possible iPhone 13 colors. Deep blue, minty green, Project Red, white, black, and, most recently, purple are the six colors available on the iPhone 12. Apple frequently switches out one hue for another in new models, but we don’t know which one it will be this time.
According to leaker Ranzuk on Naver, a Korean blogging platform, Apple may be adding a new color to the iPhone 13 lineup dubbed “Sunset Gold.” The hue is claimed to have a “bronze feel” to it, and is a shade lighter than Apple’s rose gold. @RendersbyIan shared renderings of the iPhone 13’s new color on Twitter. Earlier this year, rumors of a pink iPhone 13 surfaced.
A more powerful battery
According to Kuo, all four iPhone 13 models will have larger batteries than their iPhone 12 counterparts. This would make the 120Hz display possible.
A wider breadth as well as a camera bump
According to a May MacRumors report, the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro models may be thicker than their iPhone 12 predecessors. Both new variants are projected to be 7.57mm thick, compared to 7.4mm for the iPhone 12 models. However, most people are unlikely to detect the change.
A modification to the camera bump, according to MacRumors, could be more noticeable: While the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro feature camera bumps ranging from 1.5 to 1.7mm, the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro will have 2.51mm and 3.56mm bumps, respectively. Because of the larger size, the lenses will not protrude as much as they do on prior phones.
The reported design of the four versions was shown in a photo posted on Twitter by leaker Sonny Dickson in late June, with the camera bumps of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini revealing two lenses positioned diagonally.
Since the 2017 iPhone X, Apple has introduced a notched display on every iPhone as a location for the selfie camera. In March, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo projected that the iPhone 13 would have a smaller notch than previous models.
A narrower notch
The Lightning port is the same (for most iPhone 13 models)
While iPhones no longer have a headphone jack, some speculated that the rise of MagSafe accessories last year signaled the next iPhone would be portless. Except for the iPhone 13 Pro Max, Kuo forecasts that all iPhone 13 models will contain a Lightning port. The iPhone 13 could possibly come without any buttons, but this is more likely to happen in the future.
A display that operates at 120Hz
Kuo also predicted in March that the two iPhone 13 Pro versions will feature LTPO technology in their panels for a 120Hz refresh rate, which has been mentioned in earlier reports. The number of frames per second that a phone screen can display is measured in hertz, which impacts how fast and smooth the screen seems when scrolling through apps and online pages. It also has an impact on how smooth supported games run.
Many people were expecting the iPhone 12 to have a 120Hz refresh rate, as other higher-end phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S21 and the OnePlus 8 Pro, have. Jon Prosser, a tech analyst and leaker, alleged on Twitter that the decision was not made in the best interests of the company.
