Every year at this time, there are an ever-increasing number of rumors about the next iPhone, and 2021 is no exception. The iPhone 12 family is six months old and yet there are already a plethora of leaks and speculation about the next iPhone, which may be known as the iPhone 13. (Or it could be the iPhone 12S, or just the “iPhone” like the fourth-gen iPad. Maybe it will be the iPhone 21 because it’s 2021?) 

I gathered the newest and most persistent rumors about the iPhone 13’s cameras, specs and features (and we’ve got more intel on the iPhone 13’s rumored cost, a potential release date, and how the iPhone 13 might compare to the iPhone 12) and figured out what the iPhone 13 needs in order to be a success. Consider this an iPhone 13 wish list.

iPhone 13 rumors and what the next Apple phone needs



10:51

And just to be clear, these are rumors and leaks. Nothing is for certain until Apple formally announces it. Some of these rumors are from the past month. Others are several months or even years old and keep rising back to relevance.

The next iPhone could have a bigger battery and maybe a longer battery life.

iPhone 13 might get a bigger battery

The first rumor is that the iPhone 13 will get a bigger battery. iPhone 12’s battery life is good. In use, both the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro lasted a day no problem. In our battery test with looped video playing in airplane mode the 12 Pro lasted 15 hours, 56 minutes and the iPhone 12 lasted 17 hours, 14 minutes.

But it’s far from the best battery life we’ve seen. The Samsung Galaxy S21, with its 4,500-mAh battery, lasted 18 hours and 3 minutes in the same test. The Galaxy S21 Ultra and its 5,000-mAh battery lasted 22 hours and 57 minutes. And both of those phones have a high refresh rate display which can tax the battery even more.

While Apple never reveals the capacity of the batteries inside the iPhone, sites like iFixIt, which sells kits to replace batteries, show that an iPhone 12 and 12 Pro use a 2,815-mAh battery. What’s brilliant is Apple gets so much life from that small battery purely through the efficiency on its A-series processors and iOS.

Now imagine applying those efficiencies to a larger physical battery. This is a rumor that I hope is true and think the next iPhone needs. I mean, who doesn’t want better battery life?

The next iPhone is rumored to have a high refresh rate screen which could bode well for making those Apple Arcade games look even better.
