Alleged cases for the iPhone 13 series reveal larger camera modules and thicker bodies
All 2021 models will use Sensor-Shift technology to stabilize videos and counter the shaky hands that some users have. Unlike OIS which adjusts the lens to make up for the jitters, Sensor-Shift adjusts the sensor to deliver improved stabilization. Reliable TF International analyst Ming-Chi Kuo sees the 13 Pro models offering improved Ultra-wide cameras with autofocus with six elements instead of five.
Bigger batteries are coming to all four 2021 iPhone models
What might help reduce some of the heavy energy consumption usually associated with faster refresh rates is the LTPO backplane that will allow the rate to drop from the peak of 120 updates per second depending on the content found on the screen. For example, iPhone 13 users playing a video game with stunning animations will probably see their screen refresh at 120Hz. On the other hand, if the same user is reading an email or a text, that static content will bring down the refresh rate and save the handset’s battery life.
The iPhone 13 series will be the first handsets from Apple to employ the ProMotion displays. Apple has already employed 120Hz ProMotion screens with its top-of-the-line IPad Pro tablets. The gang in Cupertino really had no choice but to debut a 120Hz refresh rate on the new iPhone models as 90Hz, 120Hz, and higher refresh rates have been seen on Android phones.
