    Typically Apple holds its iPhone event in the second week of September and normally on a Tuesday so then we will see if the 4 choices of iPhones 13 are true .

    Via twitter, an old thread mentioning that the iphone 13 could be using magSafe

    MagSafe terminal (Smart Connector) is supposed to be on the “side” of or on the “bottom“ iPhone 13 .

    iPhone 13 Touch ID – is it time for an in-screen fingerprint sensor ?

    One of the most exciting rumors we’ve heard about the upcoming iPhone 13 is a feature Android phones have had for years: an in-screen fingerprint sensor. So how likely is Apple’s next flagship phone to get it?

    We’ve heard so many rumors that Touch ID is coming back to iPhones that it feels like a question of when, not if. But it could be coming in 2022 or later, as a couple other predictions suggest.

    Apple switched away from fingerprint sensors in its flagship phones when it introduced the iPhone X in November 2017, and its priciest phones have relied solely on facial recognition since. While Face ID has been very accurate and dependable for unlocking and secure authentication for apps, users have wanted an alternate method for years – a murmur which rose to a clamor in 2020 as widespread mask usage obscured its use.

    While Apple did release a ‘fix’ for the issue in iOS 14.5 – using a paired Apple Watch to unlock your iPhone – it was barely a half-measure, since it doesn’t authenticate for app functionality and requires a pricey wearable, too. In-screen Touch ID wouldn’t just be helpful in the current still-masked climate, but is just genuinely useful when facial recognition is too awkward. Don’t take our word for it – ask any Android user, or the many iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 owners who aren’t upgrading because they don’t want to lose Touch ID.

    iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini might miss out on a key upgrade

    there’s one thing that leakers can’t agree on, and that’s whether or not the whole iPhone 13 range will get a LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) scanner. However, it looks increasingly unlikely that the two cheapest models will.

    According to @dylandkt (a developer and leaker), LiDAR will only come to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Apparently Apple originally wanted to include it on all four upcoming models (which might be why a lot of leaks say it is coming to all four), but for undisclosed reasons that’s supposedly not now happening.

    That would mean no change on this front from the iPhone 12 range, where the Pro models already have a LiDAR scanner – a sensor that uses laser beams to measure distance, aiding photography and augmented reality.
