There are a bunch of new iPhone 13 rumors to sift through, covering the colors and design choices Apple may have in the tube, as well as software upgrades. The same amount of leaks also includes an update on Apple AirTags.
The leaks come with permission from Filip Koroy at EverythingApplePro and Max Weinbach, both of whom are known to have solid inside information more often than not. Perhaps the most interesting treat is an indication that Apple may be planning a matte black iPhone 13.
The new color will apparently be exclusive to the Pro models, and is said to be a reworking of the current graphite shade. This is in line with an Apple patent we spotted at the end of last year, and suggested that the company was working on a matte black surface for both the iPhone and Apple Watch.
According to sources talking to EverythingApplePro and Weinbach, Apple is also working on a bronze or orange surface for a future iPhone ̵
A return for mini?
Apple is apparently working on a new coating for the stainless steel frame around the iPhone, to reduce the effect of stains and fingerprints. On the software side, it is also said that improvements in portrait mode (utilizing the LiDAR sensors in the Pro models) are on the way.
Another chunk of information we have taken from the leak drop: despite weak sales of the iPhone 12 mini, the iPhone 13 mini will happen – and it also comes with a slightly larger battery installed.
Other revelations from this particular batch point to an enhanced sound experience and a redesigned camera module – one that means less of a camera bump for the iPhone 13 models when they appear (September is the most likely launch month).
Finally, tipsters also revealed more details about Apple AirTags: They are said to measure 32 mm x 32 mm x 6 mm (1.26 inches x 1.26 inches x 0.24 inches) and cost $ 39 per pop, with a release together with new iPad pros in the near future.
