- They seem to again point to a smaller notch coming in this year's iPhone.
More images allegedly showing the iPhone 13's glass front have again hinted at a smaller coming notch.
Similar images shared back in March also hinted at this change. It is impossible to confirm whether these images are 100% legitimate, but they look very similar to that previous leak, from that report:
New leaked images reportedly depicting the glass of the iPhone 13 seem to confirm previous reports that Apple will shrink the notch currently featured in the iPhone 12.
iPhone 13 models are widely expected to feature a smaller notch, and we are able to share a first look at the potential design. Greek repair provider iRepair has provided MacRumors with an alleged photo of front glass panels for iPhone 13 models, with the same three 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.7-inch display sizes as the iPhone 12 lineup. The notch on each iPhone is visibly smaller as a result of the earpiece speaker being moved up into the top bezel, a design choice that was first rumored for iPhone 12 models last year but failed to materialize.
Multiple sources including IceUniverse and Jon Prosser, as well as supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and Digitimes, have all said that Apple will slim down the notch on the iPhone this year.
The iPhone 13, expected to debut in September, might actually be a more subtle 'S' update rather than a major redesign. News earlier today suggests Apple has huge upgrade plans for the iPhone 14 in 2022, including the introduction of a 48MP camera that can shoot 8K video.
