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 five 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. I gathered the newest and most persistent rumors, and figured out what the iPhone 13 needs in order to be a success.
Oh and iPhone 13? I have no idea what the next iPhone will be called. 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? For the sake of simplicity, I’m going to call it the iPhone 13 because that comes after 12.
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 week others are or even years old and keep rising back to relevance.
