After the launch of iPhone 12 just a couple of weeks ago,
Features and some details of the iPhone 13 have been leaked on Twitter by LeaksApplePro, they said the features they listed in their tweet came from an internal meeting at Apple where future plans for the year 2021 were discussed.
LeaksApplePro has a mixed reputation in the tech industry, and the features they leaked features are not guaranteed to be what the engineers end up working on, but they could tease the Cupertino company’s plans for the time being.
Find the tweet below
iPhone 13 plans:
-Touch ID in half the screen(from the middle to bottom so you can press where you want).
-No ports, charging via MagSafe or SmartConnector.
-Redesign batteries to last longer.
-Camera is expected to have a massive improvement.

The leaked tweet indicates the iPhone 13 will use a Touch ID sensor that is hidden beneath the display, with the active area covering the bottom half of the screen for easy access.
He also indicated there will be no ports at all on the iPhone 13 but apple will maintain the Megasafe or smart connector charging.
A longer-lasting battery design wouldn’t be an earth-shattering upgrade, but consider that Apple just introduced battery-hungry 5G connectivity to the whole iPhone 12 lineup. Adding more upgrades like the ones LAP reveals would mean a potentially even greater power drain, so more battery life is a necessity.
The idea that there will be a massive improvement in the camera make it sound more exciting
Finally, LeaksApplePro also wrote that the iPhone 13 will finally get the 120Hz refresh rate that we were respecting in the iPhone 12. This feature was thought to be arriving this year on the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max except it got ditched due to engineering difficulties and costs.
Like under-display fingerprint readers, 120Hz refresh rates are common on Android rivals like the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE or OnePlus 8T, and Apple getting in on the action would be good news for its many loyal users.
This year’s iPhone launch was delayed due to pandemic-related problems. Assuming everything is back on track, we’d expect an iPhone 13 to launch next September, the usual month for Apple to bring out its new flagship phone.
