While we haven't officially announced this year's flagship, called the iPhone 12, we've already received a number of rumors about next year's iPhone 13 series.

Display analyst Ross Young tweeted his predictions for the next iPhone. According to him, the iPhone 13 series will consist of a 6.7-inch "iPhone 13 Pro Max", 6.1-inch "iPhone 13 Pro", 6.1-inch "iPhone 13", and 5.4-inch "iPhone 13 mini" models. These are exactly the same as the iPhone 12's expected lineup, and there won't be any major changes in design or form-factor.

Furthermore, according to him, all iPhone 13 models will use "Y-OCTA". This is Samsung's technology that integrates touch functionality into the OLED panel itself, eliminating the need for a film for the touch sensor. Samsung will still provide this technology to Apple, and for two of these 6.1-inch models (iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13), China's BOE will be a supplier along with LG Display.

Young also claimed that the "most important development" of the iPhone 13 Pro models will be the adoption of 120Hz-capable ProMotion displays with variable refresh rates, accommodated by the adoption of LTPO display technology.

The iPad Pro series already uses ProMotion technology, and rumors were rife that the Pro models of the iPhone 12 would include it at one point. However, Young argued that 120Hz display requires LTPO (a power-saving technology that enables constant display on the Apple Watch Series 5 and later), which can be adjusted from 1Hz to 120Hz, and that Apple could not introduce it until 2021. The company has since settled on the observation that the device was not installed this year due to a delay in procuring the necessary components. It has since been speculated that it was not adopted this year due to a delay in procuring the necessary components.

And while the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini will have the same camera sensor as the iPhone 12 Pro Max, the sensor size on both Pro models will be larger. In other words, we can expect significant camera improvements on all models.

Meanwhile, the successor to the low-cost iPhone SE, however, is not expected to arrive until spring 2022. The third-generation iPhone SE will feature a 6.1-inch LCD display, Touch ID and sub-6 GHz 5G support, and the same dual cameras as the iPhone 11.

This repeats the same pattern as previous generations of the iPhone SE series, reusing the design of an older model while upgrading internals. Supposedly, the next-generation iPhone SE will follow the iPhone 11 design but integrate Touch ID into the sleep button like the 4th generation iPad Air. A similar prediction was stated by renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo as "iPhone SE 2 Plus".

This year's iPhone 12 mini is rumored to be $50 cheaper than the iPhone 11, so maybe they'll take a break from updating the cheaper model for a while and focus on promoting that one.
