Since the iPhone X first came out, the notch design has still been highly discussed and criticized. Also today, people have moved on to perforated cuts that make the usual notches look almost like a view from the past.
Over the years, Apple has not strayed far enough from its original design to look almost outdated. But with the iPhone 13 series, Apple is said to have changed things a bit, and this latest leak reveals just how small the notch will be.
Notches have become a necessary evil for iPhone users. Beyond an older design, the size of the notch is necessary to accommodate all the hardware underneath, especially Face ID TrueDepth hardware. Because the larger the notch, the larger the space that cannot be used to display pixels.
A site called MacOtakara unearthed the 3D-printed iPhone 13 Pro based on iPhone specifications sent to accessory manufacturers. Let’s note that this type of printing is usually sent to manufacturers before launch to allow them to prepare things like cases and screensavers that need to be adjusted to new dimensions.
The notch part of the model, allegedly the iPhone 13 Pro, is 5.35 mm long and 26.8 mm wide, as opposed to the 5.35 mm and 34.83 mm values in the 12 series.
In other words, the notch will be slightly longer but significantly narrower than before. This change in size is attributed to Apple moving the headphone speaker to the top edge of the frame instead of the notch.
It is also claimed that the camera components have been rearranged to maximize the use of a smaller area. Let’s note that all this information that has been put forward is now just a claim and it is too early for everything.
