5.5-inch iPhone 13 prototype shows no notch & USB-C

Ben Geskin

The news: A possible 5.5-inch iPhone prototype for release in 2021 has surfaced, according to Macotakara (67.4% accurate).

  • The notch has been removed, presumably due to in-display Touch ID replacing it
  • Also present on this prototype is USB-C (something most sources have said will never materialize)

Our take: Like the last iPhone 13 leaks, these should be taken as entertainment over anything else. The final design for this year’s iPhone lineup reportedly isn’t even complete. Yet, we’ve been hearing more and more about the removal of the notch on at least one 2021 model…so this is a good sign.
