The iPhone 13 leak just revealed the design change we have been waiting for



The notch, which houses Apple’s smart Face ID scanning technology, has remained a staple of iPhone design since the iPhone X in 2017. But it looks like the rumors were correct, and the notch will be slimmed down when the iPhone 13 arrives in September.

Mac Otakara has obtained what it believes is a 3D-printed mockup of the iPhone 13 Pro. As you can see in the photos and video below, while the overall phone size is equal, the notch is significantly reduced when held together with the iPhone 12 Pro.

If you struggle to judge how much smaller the iPhone 13 pro notch is, the photographer took a ruler for both handsets. It’s actually a bit higher at 5.35 mm to the old notch’s 5.30 mm, but it’s markedly thinner, with the new notch clocked at 26.80 mm, down from 34.83 mm on the iPhone 12 Pro.

The raw mockup also reveals how Apple has made the change without affecting the functionality: it seems that the earplug has been pushed up into the frame of the iPhone 13 Pro. The forward-facing camera also appears to have been moved from the right side of the notch to the left side.

Pictures on the back of the phone show no changes at all, with the same triangular triple camera array placed in a small, square shock at the top left.

Although the Mac Otakara does not share the full dimensions of the model, the iPhone 13 Pro mockup does not look so different from its predecessor, suggesting an iterative update in terms of design.
