The 2021 iPhone rumor train seems to be going at full speed, with EverythingApplePro and renowned leaker Max Weinbach revealing a series of leaks for the upcoming iPhone lineup. One of the mentions is the feature of an always-on battery-efficient 120Hz LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) display.
Just like most Android devices the always-on display on the iPhone would feature a persistent clock, the battery percentage, and a bar of notifications. New incoming notifications would only pop up temporarily.
Other, less surprising but possibly more impactful rumors shared by Weinbach and others include improved ultra-wide cameras with better low-light performance, an automatic astrophotography mode, and a portrait video mode similar to the one appearing on the Galaxy S21.
The MagSafe magnets are expected to become stronger – possibly paving the way to what some expect to be a portless iPhone 13.
Minor design changes, including a grippier matte back on the Pro models are also part of the rumor mill.
Previous rumors, or just obvious expectations, included a smaller notch for the front camera and Face ID and the possibility of an in-display fingerprint reader, which would be great in times of a global pandemic.
Nothing new here actually, just smartphones getting better all around.
