Shared via video and images, Macotakara was able to get its hands on the mockup which is likely based on schematics shared by sources in iPhone’s supply chain. If that’s accurate it’s likely this thing is indeed what we will see come September.
The notch is significantly shrunk, based on these images, with key components moved around to make space for extra screen real estate. It isn’t clear what Apple will do with the newfound space, however.
Macotakara, via Google Translate, has the new dimensions.
Regarding the size of active area of the center housing, the height becomes from 5.30mm to 5.35mm, and the width becomes from 34.83mm to 26.80mm, which is smaller.
The infrared camera and light shooting illuminator placed on the left hand side of the speaker / mic are moved to the area of the speaker / mike of iPhone 12.
The position of the speaker / mic of iPhone 13 gets closer to the body,
The front camera used to be the right hand side of the speaker / mic, but it is moved to the left.
Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max in September, likely via a virtual event as was the case last year.
