Apparently 2021 iPhones won’t be notch-free as expected by this old iPhone 13 mockup. At least, we will get a smaller notch! It’s unclear from the images if the notch has reduced in size both horizontally and vertically, but it certainly looks like it smaller in width. What do you think?

iPhone 13 Leaks And Rumors
With iOS 15, iPadOS 15 watchOS 8 and macOS Monterey previewed by Apple during the WWDC21 keynote. The leakers focus is now on the iPhone 13 lineup. The 2021 Apple smartphones will be released this fall, most likely in the month of September.
The iPhone 13 should embrace the same shape as its predecessor. Noticeable changes could be:
- Smaller notch: for all four expected models. With the most noticeable difference seen in the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
- Thicker Camera: the depth of the camera module, to be able to accommodate the OIS (Optical Image Stabiliser).
- Thicker Device: the thickness of the entire device, to be able to accommodate a larger battery.
- Lens Layout: the camera module design for iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. Sonny Dickson’s leaked case renders, depict the two wide and ultra-wide camera lenses aligned in a diagonal, instead of the vertical lineup used with previous iPhone models.
Fact: This change also causes the Flash and microphone to be rearranged. Apparently, the Flash will be placed in the top-right corner (above the right camera), while the microphone will be housed in the bottom-left area of the camera module!
Important: This is the time of the year when case manufacturers receive precise info from Apple regarding upcoming iPhone sizes. This allows them to design and manufacture cases that will be available for sale on iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro launch day.
