As we are getting closer to the second half of the year, we are also coming across more iPhone 13 leaks and reports in the rumor mill. The latest leak is from a well-known YouTuber Lewis Hilsenteger aka Unbox Therapy who has got his hands on an alleged iPhone 13 Pro Max dummy unit. He has shared a video featuring the dummy and talking about the differences he has noticed.
It goes without saying that the dummy is a non-functional unit and only gives an idea of what the design would look like. The design schematics of the unit are based on the leaks and rumors so far. These dummies are usually used by accessories makers to prepare their product lines for the new generation. Lewis is also quick to note that this particular dummy is one of the best in terms of qualities that he has ever come across.
The first thing that one would notice straightaway is that the iPhone 13 Pro Max dummy has bigger camera sensors than the iPhone 12 Pro Max. This is likely due to the major camera changes Apple is rumored to be working on for the next generation. It is said to offer wide-angle cameras with f/1.8 aperture and auto-focus as compared to f/2.4 aperture and fixed-focus on the current models. This will help the sensors capture more light and eventually click better low-light shots.
On the front side of things, the iPhone 13 Pro Max dummy features a 6.7-inch display but with a slightly smaller notch. Apple is said to have achieved this by moving Face ID sensors closer and front-facing speaker to the top bezel. There have also been rumors of a port-less iPhone but the dummy shows that at least the iPhone 13 lineup will be coming with the same ports as the iPhone 12 series. There is not even a USB Type-C port on the next-gen iPhone and features the same lightning port.
