A bunch of juicy iPhone rumors just dropped

We have been ready for Apple to jack up the iPhone’s refresh price for some time now. If the newest spherical of iPhone 13 rumors are to be believed, we cannot have to attend for much longer.

The brand new claims come courtesy of MacRumors, who bought their arms on analysis notes from market analyst and standard Apple prognosticator Ming-Chi Kuo. By Kuo’s estimation, the 2021 iPhone (which we’ll name the iPhone 13) can have smaller notches on the entrance and larger batteries. Some of them might even have a 120Hz show.

For those who aren’t up on tech lingo, the refresh rate is how usually a display can refresh itself, or “blink,” in a second. Up till now, iPhones have shipped with 60Hz screens, that means they refresh 60 instances in a second. Going as much as 120Hz would clearly double that, with the tangible profit of making all the pieces look approach smoother than earlier than.


In keeping with the analysis notes, Apple will seemingly stick to releasing 4 new iPhones this yr, much like how 2020 introduced us the iPhone 12 with Mini, Professional, and Professional Max variants.

Kuo says each iPhone 13 mannequin ought to have an improved battery, whereas 120Hz refresh charges will solely make it to the Professional fashions. That might be mildly disappointing if true, as flagships from rivals like Samsung have included excessive refresh charges for the previous couple of {hardware} cycles. 

Maybe a bit extra juicy are Kuo’s predictions for the 2022 iPhones. Sure, we sadly want to start out interested by 2022 as an actual yr that can occur quickly. When it does, Kuo says Apple might undertake hole-punch shows like these seen on the entrance of the aforementioned Samsung flagships, changing the notch solely. No phrase but on how (or even when) Apple plans on retaining Face ID sensors contained in the hole-punch show, however hey, that is an issue we are able to fear a couple of yr and a half from now.

We cannot discover out if Kuo is true till Apple has its official showcase this fall.
