We’re in a busy nine months from IPhone 13 Rumors that preceded the unveiling of the phone expected in September 2021, and the latest unconfirmed whispers that reached us indicate that the phone will come with some subtle design adjustments.
Usually known and trusted Japanese outlet MacOtakara Reports suggest that the iPhone 13 will have a smaller notch at the top of the front screen, with the TrueDepth camera more compact for the Face ID, which enables Apple to make the aperture less prominent.
The phone has also been set to be about 0.26 mm (0.01 in) thicker as well, according to the suppliers who spoke to MacOtakara, but it looks like the rear camera bump will remain as the camera unit gets bigger as well.
The rear camera unit will be covered entirely in sapphire glass, MacOtakara claims, with the same camera module on the iPhone 13 Pro as the iPhone 13 Pro Max – meaning optical image stabilization converted through the sensor.

Even with the launch date approaching now, we’re starting to see rumors and leaks about the iPhone 13 starting to appear. Some of the features we thought might arrive on the iPhone 12 – like It displays a refresh rate of 120 Hz – It tends to go down this year instead.
