Calls Will Sound Better Than Ever With iPhone 13
Apple is looking to significantly improve the sound quality of phone calls on the upcoming iPhone 13, according to leaker Max Weinbach.
A YouTube video from EverythingApplePro that shared Weinbach's leaks said that the iPhone 13 will feature improved noise cancellation for phone calls that will better single out voices while blocking background noise.
As part of this system to improve sound quality during calls, Apple reportedly intends to use beamforming microphones. Apple has previously used beamforming microphones on the AirPods and AirPods Pro to enhance the quality of calls, so it is possible that some of this technology is being brought over to the iPhone 13.
Weinbach also claimed that the iPhone 13 will feature an always-on 120Hz display, a matte black color option, a fingerprint-resistant coating for stainless steel finishes, a flatter rear camera module, improved battery life, and an improved Portrait Mode that makes better use of the LiDAR scanner.
Weinbach previously stated that the 2021 iPhones will include stronger MagSafe magnets, astrophotography capabilities, and the ability to take Portrait Mode videos, but it is important to note that Weinbach does not have a proven track record for iPhone leaks.
Apple is predicted to be returning to its traditional September timeframe for unveiling the iPhone 13 lineup, which is expected to include the same-sized model options, including a 5.4-inch "iPhone 13 mini," 6.1-inch "iPhone 13" and "iPhone 13 Pro," and 6.7-inch "iPhone 13 Pro Max."
Major design changes are not expected for the 2021 iPhones, but we can likely count on a faster A-series processor, 120Hz ProMotion display, smaller notch, new 5G modem from Qualcomm, up to 1TB of storage, and more.
