1. 20% SMALLER NOTCH

The iconic notch was a defining character of the iPhone, all modern-day phones have them. For the newer models, Apple has decided to shorten the length of the notch by 20%.
Furthermore, the notch of the previous years iPhones was among the biggest in the industry and people were hoping they would launch a complete notch-less design but I think we’ll have to wait for few generations before we see a complete 100% screen to body ratio.

2. NEWER 120 Hz DISPLAY

It was one of the most awaited features of the iPhone. People were waiting eagerly for this announcement and finally, we see higher refresh rate screens in iPhone 13 Pro for the first time. This year only Pro phones are able to deliver 120 Hz but surely from next year non-Pro models would also be getting higher refresh rate screens.

3. NEW A15 BIONIC CHIPSET

Every year Apple comes out with a new chipset that is way faster than the last year‘s model, but even the last year‘s model is way faster than any other smartphone out there. Apple is truly killing in the chipset game, they are fast enough that everyone doesn’t need that much power.

4. CAMERAS & VIDEOS

Every year the iPhone has been setting a benchmark in this category, capturing some of the stunning details in photos and videos. but the problem is Apple has been using the same 12-megapixel primary camera for future generations but this time they have added the OIS in the sensor rather than in the primary camera, which in my opinion would yield better results.

5. BATTERY LIFE

This is one of the most controversial topics about the iPhone as they have been making a tough decision of not giving a great battery life in accordance with the longer life of the iPhone. This time they have slightly increased the capacity of the battery.

THE ABSOLUTE FUTURE OF iPhone

In my opinion, the future of the iPhone lies in the viewing experience. Currently, we see a 2-D image on any smartphone screen but with the use of dual eye sensing cameras, we can integrate a 3D viewing experience into the screens without the need for special 3D goggles.
Those cameras would be catching the movement of the eye in real-time and can fluctuate the image or text accordingly to increase our view on experience.

If this technology goes into production and if Apple is the first one to do it then we can clearly see a revolutionary product that would change the way we embrace content.
