Expected changes in the design of the iPhone 13 series, get to know them

Series models are expected to be iPhone 13 Apple's is slightly thicker than the iPhone 12 series phones and will also feature larger, thicker camera bumps with lenses that protrude less, according to the ‌iPhone 13' schematics seen by Specs Pro.

iPhone 13 and iPhone models are expected to be thicker13 Pro The new ones are 7.57 mm, which is more than the 7.4 mm on the ‌iPhone 12‌ models. This is an increase of 0.17 mm, which won't be much noticeable to most people.

The changes to the camera bumps in the new iPhones may be more noticeable. The iPhone 13‌ and 13 Pro will have thicker camera bumps, with the most noticeable change being the ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro.

‌iPhone 12‌ and . feature12 Pro With camera bumps in the 1.5mm to 1.7mm range, the iPhone 13‌ will have a 2.51mm camera bump. Meanwhile, the iPhone 13‌ Pro will have a 3.65mm-thick camera bump.

The camera bumps are partially thickened to prevent the lenses from protruding just as much on the iPhone 13 models. Instead of the single lenses protruding as we've seen in a series iPhone 12On the ‌iPhone 13‌ series, the camera will stand out even more while the lenses will stay closer to streaming mode, similar to the design of the 2020 iPad Pro.

More prominent camera module in iPhone 13

In addition to a thicker camera bump, Apple is changing the overall size of the camera bump, a shift that will also be more noticeable on the ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro. The ‌iPhone 12 and 12 Pro will have camera bumps that are about 28mm x 30mm thick, while the iPhone 13 will have a camera bump that's closer to the box at about 29mm x 29mm.

The iPhone 13 Pro is expected to come with a larger camera bump, measuring around 36mm x 37mm, so instead of having a camera bump size similar to the ‌iPhone 13‌, it will be more similar to the iPhone 13‌ Pro Max.

The iPhone 12 Pro camera is smaller than that of the iPhone 12 Pro Max, so the shift in 2021 indicates that the 13 Pro and Pro Max will have similar cameras, and Apple may reintroduce parity on both phones.

The rumors also suggested that the upgraded telephoto lens that was introduced exclusively on the ‌iPhone 12 Pro Max‌ could reach ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro, another sign that both ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro and Pro Max cameras can share the same set of features. We haven't heard of any new camera features limited to the 13 Pro Max, which is good news for those who want a smaller phone with all the features of the Pro Max edition.

Since the size of the rear camera module will change in the iPhone 13 series, Apple may also plan to adjust the position of the side button, mute button, and volume buttons. The side button can be moved down a bit on the iPhone 13 models, with the mute button and the volume buttons on the other side also toggled down accordingly.

All phones of the ‌iPhone 13‌ series are also expected to feature upgraded A15 processors, faster 5G support, and more, and you can read all the news and exclusive details about the iPhone 13 here.
