iPhone 13 protective film exposed earpiece and bangs may have big changes

The whistleblower DuanRui uploaded a photo claiming to be a protective film for the iPhone 13 on Twitter today. DuanRui had previously accurately broke the news about the iPhone 12 and iPad Air 4, so the iPhone 13’s screen revelation has a high degree of credibility.

The picture uploaded by DuanRui also claims that this is the protective film used by the iPhone 13, which shows a clear difference from the current iPhone 12 bangs, and the position of the earpiece may also be moved to the top of the screen. In addition, the bangs are expected to shrink by about 30%.

If the news is true, it is not clear how Apple plans to use the extra space on the iPhone 13 screen (beyond the bangs). However, the most obvious change is the display of battery percentage numbers in the status bar. Currently, users can view the remaining battery percentage on iPhone 12, and they must swipe down to the "Control Center" to view the battery percentage information.
