The iPhone 13 would be entitled to a reduced size notch. According to a well-known informant, Apple would have finally managed to reduce the size of the sensors necessary for Face ID facial recognition. According to him, the notch would be as wide as that of the iPhone 12 but a little thinner.
Since the release of the iPhone X in 2017, Apple has placed a notch on the top of its iPhone screen. In this large notch, the Cupertino company places all the sensors intended for the operation of Face ID facial recognition. All of these sensors are called TrueDepth. In addition to the essential equipment for Face ID, the notch also contains a proximity sensor, a speaker, the microphone and the front camera.
Every year, fans of the brand hope that Apple manages to reduce the size of this notch. In vain. For 3 years, Apple has been using the same thick notch on all of its smartphones. Except surprise, the notch will still be back on the iPhone 12, whose presentation keynote is scheduled for October 13, 2020.

Finally a thinner notch for the iPhone
Based on information shared by Ice Universe, the iPhone 13 would sign the arrival of a notch of reduced size. In a tweet, the informant claims Apple is working on a thinner notch at the height. It would therefore be more discreet than that of the iPhone 12 despite a similar width. If this is confirmed, Apple would have obviously managed to miniaturize TrueDepth sensors.
For now, the Californian brand has therefore not yet planned to get rid of the notch. For an iPhone enhanced with a 100% borderless screen, you will have to be patient. The latest news, the iPhone 13 would take up the aesthetic codes posed with the iPhone 12: angular frame and camera arranged in a square block. It would also be equipped with a 120 Hz ProMotion screen, a technology that would ultimately be absent from the iPhone 12.
The iPhone 13 is not expected before September 2021. As is the case this year, Apple would decline the range in 4 variants. We tell you more as soon as possible about future Apple smartphones. While waiting for more information, feel free to give your opinion in the comments below.
