The iPhone hack may be here to stay, at least on this year’s upcoming models. But that does not mean iPhone 13 notch must be the same size as the one that Apple has on all the latest handsets.
MacRumors provided a set of images from Greek repair provider iRepair showing three different iPhone 13 panels for a 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screen, similar to the models Apple included this fall iPhone 12 release. But the notch in these pictures is smaller than anything we have seen before.

We’ve been expecting a minor notch on the iPhone 13 for some time. Through various leaks and reproductions, the creators have hinted (and hoped) for a slimming of the notch, or a little change in some way to make the iPhone’s distinctive design function less prominent.
Most recently, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted it New iPhone models will find their Face ID components slimmed down in future iterations. However, a repositioning was not part of the plan, at least in these initial leaks.
Ever since Apple introduced the iPhone X in 2017, there have been no changes in the notch. Going forward, however, more than notches will be affected, according to Kuo. In fact, Apple is reportedly planning to introduce a pinhole screen for some iPhone models in 2022, much like some of Apple’s competitions. After that, the company could even introduce an iPhone with the first screen design in 2023 – no notch to see here.
When it comes to headphone design, iPhone 13 – or no matter what Apple ends up calling the new device – rumored to have a number of new options, with a newer A15 Bionic chip, improved cameras and a 120Hz screen on the Pro models.
All of this is of course speculation, as Apple has not yet confirmed anything about the iPhone 13. But there should be many more leaks on the way between now and the expected release date in September.
