Official Apple sources have confirmed that the upcoming iPhone 13, which is set to be officially released in the fourth quarter of 2021, will be thicker than the iPhone 12, and there are fantastic reasons for this.
The Apple iPhone 12 made its debut on the 23rd of October 2020 and, arguably, the most notable visual aspect was the return of the flat edge design which we last saw on the iPhone 5 and 5S generations.
The new iPhone 13 is said to be thicker in design, although it will be visually identical to the iPhone 12 in every other regard. The reasons for the iPhone 13 to be thicker in design is to allow for more space for the electronics of their 120Hz display, a first for the iPhone. In order to compensate for the extra power needed by the screen's faster refresh rate, a bigger battery is needed. To this end, Apple has has splashed out, the new iPhone 13 will feature a gigantic 4,352mAh battery, a serious set up from the 3,687mAh found in the iPhone 12.
