We might have just been given our best look at an iPhone 13 device yet after YouTuber Unbox Therapy got hold of a supposed iPhone 13 Pro Max dummy unit.
Apparently provided by leaker Ben Geskin, the unit shows pretty much everything we've come to expect from a device that won't be announced until in or around September this year. That includes a smaller notch than we've ever seen before as well as a relocated earpiece to make that size reduction possible. The difference is noticeable, too.
While it's impossible to confirm whether this is indeed what an iPhone 13 Pro Max will look like, similar dummy units have proven accurate in recent years. At this point, I'm fairly confident that what we're looking at here is what we'll be buying come September.
The new notch, which is narrower than those found on current iPhones, will still house everything required for Face ID while the earpiece has been moved up a tad. There are changes around the back as well, with larger camera lenses expected to provide more light for improved sensors.
Beyond the most obvious differences, iPhone 13 Pro Max appears to be almost identical to iPhone 12 Pro Max – the the best iPhone for photographers to date. With the cameras set to be improved this year, I expect the Pro Max model to be the best camera around once more.
All being well Apple will announce the new 2021 iPhones this September or October.
