EverythingApplePro and Max Weinbach have revealed plenty of details about this year's iPhones, the so-called iPhone 13 series. Apparently, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will have 120 Hz LTPO displays, among many other changes compared to the current iPhone 12 models. The long-awaited AirTags will reputedly cost US$39 too and should work using Bluetooth Low Energy.

EverythingApplePro (EAP) has revealed more details about Apple's AirTags and this year's iPhone 13 series. While the latter should be arriving in the fall, the former is supposedly ready for release. According to EAP, who references Max Weinbach for some of the information provided, the AirTags will measure 32 x 32 x 6 mm and should cost approximately US$39. The pair add that AirTags use Bluetooth Low Energy to work but that they do not transmit any personal data. Apparently, Apple still plans to release the AirTags alongside new iPads, which is thought to be happening next month.

Additionally, EAP and Weinbach believe that every iPhone 13 series device will have smaller notches than their iPhone 12 series counterparts, along with in-display 'Touch ID' fingerprint sensors and LIDAR sensors. Similarly, larger batteries should be coming to all iPhone 13 models, but Apple will reserve 120 Hz LTPO displays for its Pro-branded iPhones this year. Also, EAP and Weinbach expect Apple to sell iPhone 13 Pro models with up to 1 TB of storage, up from a maximum of 512 GB in the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

Moreover, the pair assert that the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max will have smaller camera arrays than last year's models and will be orderable in a new gold colour option. A new matte black option should be available across the iPhone 13 series too, which will be close to the Phantom Black edition of the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Unsurprisingly, Apple will also be introducing numerous camera improvements with the iPhone 13 series, such as improved OIS. Meanwhile, portrait mode will benefit from improved edge detection thanks to the inclusion of LIDAR sensors. EAP and Weinbach claim that Apple will allow people to shoot videos in portrait mode, too. In short, the iPhone 13 series should contain several important upgrades compared to the current iPhone 12 models, not least of the adoption of high-refresh-rate displays.
