What you need to know

  • More alleged iPhone 13 case images have been shared to Weibo.
  • They appear to show the 'Pro' model again getting a larger bump and bigger camera lenses.
  • They also reveal a change in position for the mute switch and new regular camera layout.

New images shared to Weibo allegedly depicting cases for the iPhone 13 appear to again show a change in camera design compared to the iPhone 12, currently Apple's best iPhone

The images were shared to Weibo by user 'Old explosion technology' who states:

You can see that the iPhone 13's camera is a small turn larger than the iPhone 12, and then closer to the top left corner of the border. The position of the key moves down a little.

More images appear to show the iPhone 13 'Pro' variant which includes larger camera lenses and a larger bump to house them:

The biggest upgrade to the iPhone 13 series looks like a camera, and after the Pro's camera is about the same as the 13ProMax, how do I feel like the high brush is just 13ProMax exclusive ah, otherwise the Pro is a little too showy

A third post reads:

Guess it based on the shell of the iPhone 13. The iPhone 13 and 13mini cameras are the same and get bigger, so the 13 camera ramps allow the camera area not to get bigger while maximizing space utilization. The aperture is about the size of the iPhone 12ProMax, so did the sensor inherit the iPhone 12ProMax? (The aperture of the shell will be a small circle larger than the phone camera)

Cases depicted earlier this week appeared to show the camera bump of the iPhone 13 Pro would be much bigger than that of the iPhone 12 Pro, and these new images corroborate that report and previous rumors we've heard about the new device. Whilst no changes are confirmed until announced by Apple, it seems clear the new phone will see limited design changes, with the focus on improving performance by introducing a new 120Hz display, under-display fingerprint scanner, and a new A15 chip.
