iPhone 13 Dummy Models Depict Repositioned Camera Modules

New alleged dummy models of the upcoming iPhone 13, shared by leaker Sonny Dickson on Twitter, depict a modified camera layout on the standard ‌iPhone 13‌ and ‌iPhone 13‌ mini, with two lenses in a diagonal arrangement rather than the vertical arrangement seen on the iPhone 12 models.

The dummy models generally line up with ‌iPhone 13‌ schematics previously seen by MacRumors, which showed that the upcoming iPhones will feature a thicker overall design and a larger camera bump on the iPhone 13 Pro to more closely match its larger sibling.

The larger and thicker camera bumps could be a result of the rumored inclusion of sensor-shift stabilization for the entire lineup. The highest-end Pro and Pro Max are also rumored to feature upgraded Ultra Wide cameras.


Beyond camera improvements, the upcoming ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ and Pro Max are expected to come with a 120Hz display and potentially always-on capabilities. Recently leaked battery capacities suggest that the entire lineup will feature larger batteries, possibly due in part to the higher power consumption needed for the higher variable refresh rate on the Pro models.

Unlike last year, Apple is expected to launch the new iPhones in September, in line with years prior to the global health crisis. Apple recently filed upcoming models of the iPhone into the EEC database, and Apple's suppliers are beginning to ramp up efforts to improve device production.

Anyone else tired of this design?
It’s only been around for a single generation. The iPhone 6-era design lasted for six years (if you count the iPhone X, XS, and 11 Pro as part of that design).

Personally, I love it, but given that this design style has been applied to the iPads and new iMac as well as rumored for the next MacBook Pro and even  Watch, I don’t see it going away anytime soon.
