New renders of the iPhone 13 Pro smartphone have appeared on the web, based on insider information and leaks from the supply chain, indicating the expected characteristics of the device.
From everything we've heard so far, the iPhone 13 is set to offer a 120Hz LTPO display on both Pro models, improved battery life thanks to a more efficient 5G modem, as well as substantial upgrades to the all-important cameras. That includes a LiDAR sensor on cheaper iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, as well as a new portrait video mode.

If the iPhone 13 release date follows Apple's pattern for previous launches, we could see this device hit shelves on the fourth Friday of September 2021. That would be September 24.
A report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple will once again offer four sizes for the iPhone 13. So you can expect a 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini, a 6.1-inch iPhone 13, a 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Early rumors about this fall's iPhone have used iPhone 13 as the name for the upcoming model, since Apple went from from the iPhone 11 to the iPhone 12 last year. But a handful of recent rumors have referred to the unreleased iPhone by a different name — the iPhone 12s.

One report from Mac Otakara, having spoken to sources in Apple’s supply chain, reports that the iPhone 13 design will finally offer a thinner notch. This could be accomplished by moving the top speaker.
The biggest change we can expect from the iPhone 13 is that one model could feature a portless design, dropping the Lightning port and opting for charging and data transfer to be carried out wirelessly. That would be a radical change from the iPhone 12, but could also spark a move for the smartphone world to slowly ditch its reliance on ports and bundled chargers and cables. (Apple already made such a move with the iPhone 12, by not including a charger with any of those phones.)
According to the source, the upcoming flagship iPhone 13 Pro will keep the notch at the top center of the display, but it will be smaller. This cutout will have the speaker hole and the selfie camera setup. It is also said to have an in-display fingerprint sensor for security. The square shaped rear camera setup will include a 12MP primary sensor with f/1.5 aperture, a 12MP ultra-wide sensor (12mm) with autofocus, and a 12MP telephoto sensor (65mm). The report further claims that the iPhone 13 Pro will come with a 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display with a resolution of 2688 x 1242 pixels. The display will have 458 pixels per inch and a 120Hz refresh rate. Apple iPhone 13 Pro is also said to come with Bionic A15 SoC and iOS 15.
