This year iPhone 13 lineup will include an always-on-screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, enhanced camera features for astrophotography, stronger MagSafe magnets and a finer matte finish on the back, according to leaker Max Weinbach (via YouTube channel EverythingApplePro).
Weinbach is a well-known leaker and has previously shared information via the YouTube channel about 2020 iPhone 12 lineup, some of which became a reality. Either way, take the following with a grain of salt. According to their sources, Apple plans to include an always-on screen in the iPhone 13 series, where the technology is similar to the always-on screen in the Apple Watch Series 5 and newer.
Always-on screens are typical of most flagship Android smartphones, and it allows users to view information on their screen at any time without having to turn on or unlock the device. Ever since iPhone X, which was the first iPhone for having an OLED screen, many have speculated that Apple will bring this feature to iPhone users.
OLED screens use less power than LCD screens, as each pixel is controlled individually, unlike LCD panels that use backlighting and illuminate all pixels, even if it’s just to display a small piece of information on the screen. With OLED screens, Apple is able to turn on only the pixels needed to show users the time, battery, or some kind of indicator for app notifications without using a significant amount of battery power.
Weinbach claims that the always-on screen will look like a “dimmed lock screen”, where the clock and battery charge are always visible, and previous messages are displayed through “a bar and icons.” When users receive a notification, the message “will appear normally except that the screen does not fully light up.” Instead, “it shows it just like you’re used to right now, except toned down and only temporarily” according to the leaker.
The leak also “confirms” that a 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate is happening on the 2021 Pro iPhone models, a feature that was much rumors appears on the iPhone 12P. An always on and ProMotion screen would not require a change in the physical design, and it gives in to the fact that Weinbach reports that there will be no change in the actual chassis of the iPhone 13 compared to the iPhone 12 lineup. The only possible hardware change would be a matte back with a “grippier, more comfortable” feel similar to the finish on the back of the Google Pixel series.
Internally, agMagSafe will be “significantly” stronger according to the leak. The IPhone 12 has agMagSafe on the back, which allows users to magnetically attach various accessories and offers an alternative way to charge the device, but the magnets have been criticized by some for being weak. Apple seeks to alleviate these concerns by adding stronger magnets, though the addition is not expected to be the only reason for a rumors of increase in unit thickness. In terms of cameras, Weinbach reports that Apple is stepping up its efforts in astrophotography.
Astrophotography, photography of astronomy, typically requires complicated camera setups to skillfully capture the dark sky at night. The integration of the iiPhone capability is expected to be hassle-free, with the leak claiming that the iPhone automatically switches to mode when it detects a user pointing to the sky. The mode allows the phone to detect various artifacts such as the moon and stars and adjusts settings such as exposure accordingly. Affirmative Apple Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the leak says the ultra-wide camera across the entire lineup will get one improved sensor and lens.
The latest information from the leaks points to the possibility of taking portrait videos on this year’s iPhone. Users have been able to take portrait photos since the launch of the iPhone 7 Plus, but it has remained completely limited to photos. Portrait mode adds a sense of depth to your photos, blurring the background and keeping the center subject in full focus. With videos, the task becomes much more difficult as the subject moves actively, making it harder to add a depth effect in real time.
The new information joins an already long list of features we expect for the 2021 iPhone. ONE Bloomberg the report suggests that the biggest headlining feature in the lineup will be reintroducing Touch ID on iPhone. According to this report, Apple is testing to bury Press ID sensor under the display so that users can unlock their device if Face ID is considered unusable, e.g. when you have a mask on. Unlike the iPhone 12, which saw delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the iPhone 13 is expected to launch to the time in September.
