iPhone 13 may get always-on display, stronger MagSafe & Portrait Mode for video

The rumor: Apple is planning a number of notable upgrades for the iPhone 13 series, according to Max Weinbach (67.1% accurate, via EAP).


  • 3 impressive camera upgrades: new astrophotography mode, upgraded higher-quality ultra-wide lens and Portrait Mode for video(!)
  • Always-on display: the clock, battery level and minimalistic notifications are said to be shown at all times
  • Stronger MagSafe magnets will be placed in the chassis to improve the attraction of accessories

Our take: An always-on display would be so incredibly nice to finally see on iPhone! And as a huge fan of MagSafe, stronger magnets on the 2021 iPhones would make some accessories like the wallet attach more securely. I’m still highly skeptical about Portrait Mode for video coming this year, though.
