Apple iPhone 13 Rumors, Features and Specs
Various internet sources contributed to the iPhone 13 rumored features and specs.
iPhone 13 might have improved camera performance. The smartphone could use features like "Cinematic Video" in portrait mode and higher-quality multimedia format (including HD and 4K video) known as ProRes. iPhone might also use AI filter systems that significantly improve picture colors through highlights, shadows and warmer or cooler temperatures.
Other reports said Apple upgraded iPhone 13 battery capacity. Upgrades per iPhone 13 model are as follows:

- iPhone 13: from 2815 mAh to 3095 mAh
- Pro: from 2815 mAh to 3095 mAh
- Pro Max: from 3687 mAh to 4352 mAh
The iPhone 13 might also be the first Apple smartphone to feature satellite upgrades. Reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the smartphone would feature a customized Qualcomm chip that allows LEO (low-earth orbit) satellite communication. This means users could call and send messages even in places outside the 4G or 5G network.
An FCC filing from Apple was also recently spotted about a new MagSafe charger. The new design should help prevent the phone from overheating even with less charge time.
Lastly, the iPhone is said to feature A15 processors. This chip would lower energy consumption and improve overall smartphone performance. Unfortunately, the 5nm chip technology comes with a price.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), which controls half the global foundry market and is Apple's largest chip supplier, recently announced its "biggest price hike in a decade," according to Nikkei Asia. Note that the company normally commands 20 percent higher production fees than its rivals.
As such, the knock-on effect of the price might affect the iPhone 13 price.
