Like its predecessors, the new iPhone 13 – its unconfirmed name – is expected to be released in a whole family of sizes.

There should be the standard iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, both with a 6.1-inch screen, as well as the Pro Max, with a 6.7-inch screen, and a Mini, with a 5.4-inch screen.

But in terms of looks, analysts expect it to be similar to last year’s iPhone 12, with distinctive square-edges. According to a report, it may be ‘a bit thick’ but the screen size is likely to remain the same.

One noticeable change could be a small rectangular black notch at the top of the display – which can be shortened or removed entirely, according to the leaker Maury QHD on Twitter.

The notch, appearing on flagship iPhone models since 2017, hides the phone’s front-facing camera components and sensors.

The iPhone 13 may instead place these important components at the top of the bezel, the border between a screen and a phone’s frame.

Some reports are claiming that a one terabyte internal storage option could be available for the first time with improvements to the phone’s cameras, possibly in the form of an upgraded Ultra Wide camera lens.

Insiders are also saying that the iPhone 13 will come with a much longer battery life, due to its added thickness being able to accommodate a larger battery.

Apple is expected to unveil its new iPhone at the company's September 14 product launch.  Among the many rumors about the new device is that it will come in pink, black and bronze, replacing green, graphite and pacific blue.
