What you need to know
- The iPhone 13 is just a few weeks away.
- A new report reiterates we can expect better battery life and other upgrades.
- Trendforce says the new iPhone will offer more mmWave 5G support too.
TF also reiterates rumors that Apple will adopt a new circuit board over its previous rigid-flex PCB design. The new design will feature SiP combined with a flexible PCB to make more space inside the phone, this, in turn, will provide for a larger battery.
Trendforce also says the new iPhone will be priced the same as the iPhone 12, currently Apple's best iPhone because there are no "significant hardware upgrades".
With rumors of a new LTPO display and 120Hz refresh rate for the 'Pro' iPhone, it is unclear if larger batteries would lead to more battery life or simply performance matching the current lineup. With a rumored iPhone event expected in September, we don't have long to wait and find out.
