A well-known analyst has already shared a lot of information about the iPhone models that are due to hit the market in 2021 and 2022, including the supposed display sizes, the planned camera upgrades, and the start of the long-awaited 120 Hz ProMotion.
The iPhone 12 hasn’t even been officially unveiled yet, and there are already new rumors about the iPhone 13 due to be released next year. The well-known display analyst Ross Young provided a whole series of exciting information in the tweet embedded below.
Most important development on the iPhone 13 models from my perspective will be ProMotion with variable refresh rates through LTPO adoption on the Pro models.

Accordingly, Next year the iPhone family will consist of four models. The 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch iPhone 13, as well as the 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro. All four devices will feature an OLED display and a 5G modem. New, however, is that the Pro models must be equipped with a 120Hz screen, whose frame rate can be dynamically controlled using Apple ProMotion technology to adapt to relevant requirements and thus save energy.
In addition, the analyst says that the cheaper iPhone 13 should inherit the cameras of the iPhone 12 Pro Max. While one can expect larger camera sensors for the next year’s Pro model, which may deliver higher-resolution, but in any case, lower-noise images should. The entire iPhone 13 product family will continue to use Face ID.
The analyst also states directly that Apple will present the successor to the iPhone SE 2 in 2022. The smartphone will have a 6-inch LCD display instead of Face ID. There will be a slightly more old-fashioned Touch ID -Fingerprint sensor, which, like the new iPad Air, could be built into the lock button.
