Apple’s upcoming “iPhone 13” models will be slightly thicker than current iPhone 12 models, with larger, thicker camera bumps with less protruding camera lenses. The information comes from iPhone 13 schematics shared by MacRumors.
The new iPhone 13 and 13 Pro models are expected to have a thickness of 7.57mm, up from 7.4mm in the iPhone 12 models. That’s a slight increase of 0.17mm, meaning it might not be noticeable to most people.
The iPhone 13 and 13 Pro will have thicker camera bumps, with the biggest change being most noticeable on the iPhone 13 Pro. The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro sports camera bumps ranging from 1.5mm to 1.7mm, while the iPhone 13 will have a thicker 2.51mm camera bump. The iPhone 13 Pro will feature a 3.65mm thick camera bump.
The thicker camera bumps will prevent the lenses from protruding as much on the iPhone 13 models.
Apple is also changing the overall size of the iPhone 13 camera bump, a change that will be most noticeable on the iPhone 13 Pro. The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro’s camera bumps measure in at around 28mm by 30mm, while the iPhone 13’s camera bump will be closer to square at around 29mm by 29mm.
The iPhone 13 Pro is expected to sport a larger camera bump, measuring in at around 36mm by 37mm, meaning the handset’s camera bump will be more similar to the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Leaks of this type normally originate from accessory makers who get Apple’s iPhone measurements well ahead of time to allow them to design cases.
Apple’s upcoming iPhone 13 lineup is expected to boast improved A15 chips, faster 5G connectivity, and more. The new iPhone lineup will likely be unveiled at a September event.
