iPhone 12 vs iPhone 13, should you wait?

Rumors about the iPhone 13 are the order of the day and, although the iPhone 12 hit the market just a few months ago, many may be considering waiting for the next generation of iPhone. Does it make sense to wait for the iPhone 13 or is it better to buy the iPhone 12 right now?

IPhone 13 concept based on the latest rumors

Clearly it is not an easy question to answer And it will depend on each user, it is not the same if you have one of the latest iPhone models or that you have an old iPhone that no longer works correctly.

Is the iPhone 13 worth the wait?

There is no doubt that the iPhone 12 are excellent devices, but clearly the iPhone 13 will surpass them in specifications. It is something constant in the world of technology, and traditionally the same thing is always said: if you always decide to wait you will never buy anything.

What improvements will come with the iPhone 13?

This year is a small renewal, in fact it is possible that this year’s iPhone is finished styling iPhone 12s. Therefore a revolution is not expected, rather a continuation of what we saw this year. These are the main improvements that the iPhone 13 will have.

The Touch ID vuelta

One of the most important rumors of this year. Apple could resurrect Touch ID on the iPhone in a totally new way within Apple devices: placing it under the screen. It is even possible that there is a large surface of the screen that can serve as a fingerprint sensor.

The iPhone screen of 2021, at least of the Pro models, will have a significant improvement thanks to LTPO technology. We will keep the same screen resolution, but the refresh rate will vary from 1 Hz to 120 Hz. This was something we expected in the iPhone 12, and it finally did not come.

A smaller notch

Another novelty that did not come with the iPhone 12 and that could mark the main design difference of the iPhone 13. We expect a smaller, or at least narrower notch in the new generation of iPhone.

What won’t get much better on the iPhone 13

However there are many other features the iPhone 13 won’t evolve as much. Yes, it will get better, but it remains to be seen if enough to make it worthwhile.


The A14 Bionic of the current iPhone 12 has taken a fairly significant leap, at least in terms of numbers. But when it comes to performance, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 are still very even. And that taking into account that the A14 has made the jump to 5 nanometers. Therefore, with the A15, we will probably see an even smaller difference.

It doesn’t look like we’re going to make a big leap this year when it comes to the iPhone camera, and it looks like improvements will focus on the ultra-wide sensor, especially image quality in low-light moments. Nevertheless, all other sensors will only receive minimal improvement.


The iPhone 13 design will be identical to iPhone 12. We will have the same screen sizes and the same straight design that Apple released last year. The only major difference could be the absence of a charging port, and the notch we’ve already mentioned.

So do I wait or don’t I wait?

In my opinion, iPhone 13 is not worth waiting for right now. Its launch is scheduled for mid to late September, therefore still there are more than 6 months until its launch. In addition, right now you can get the iPhone 12 with a significant discount, and they will also continue to maintain a very interesting value within 12 months in the second-hand market.

It is true that if you have an iPhone 11 or iPhone XS, in any of its versions, and it works well, you can try to endure it for 6 more months and make that big investment in the iPhone 13. But it would be the only option in which, for me, it would make sense to wait.
