In a new video, popular YouTuber Filip Koroy, aka EverythingApplePro, has revealed leaked iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro CAD designs which show Apple is introducing massive new rear cameras to the lineup. In fact, Koroy describes them as “very Freakishly big” and a "massive increase in size".

While the images above and below illustrate this change best, Koroy also has specific measurements. “On the iPhone 13 Pro Max we have a 3.41mm higher lens and [it is] now 4.81mm wider, resembling a rounded square more than that of the 12 Pro Max.”

It is a similar change for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini’s dual cameras with Koroy also confirming both the new diagonal camera arrangement which leaked earlier this week. The changes mark the beginning of a new trend towards supersized smartphone cameras following the launch earlier this month of Xiaomi’s Mi 11 Ultra

In addition to this, Koroy also notes that the iPhone 13 range’s other big design change: “These CADs do confirm a smaller notch because they have a smaller earpiece that’s sitting up on the very top.” While the new notch is only about 30% smaller than the current one seen since the iPhone X, it’s very welcome and (arguably) overdue.

Further nuggests from Koroy, include a 'confirmation' that the sim card try will now integrate with the logic board to save space while the volume buttons and mute switch have "migrated north 2-3mm" and the . The new iPhone 13 models will also be almost identical in size to their predecessors, but old cases won't fit due to the change in camera size.

While previous leaks have revealed Apple’s next-gen iPhones will have 120Hz ProMotion displays, next-gen 5G modems, boosted WiFi speed and range, an improved version of MagSafe and significantly improved power efficiency, there is no doubt that their massive new cameras will be the biggest talking point. 

Combined with previously leaked improvements to image stabilisation and an exciting new portrait video mode and hopes will be high the iPhone 13 lineup will return to the top of the camera rankings. And the good news is, we won’t have to wait long to find out.
