° It will have Face ID hardware that will work with masks and foggy glasses.

° At least some models will support ProRes for videos and Portrait Mode for video.

° It will add advanced photo filters.

° It will pack an A15 processor.

° It will have an “always-on” display like the Apple Watch.

° It will adopt the improved Wi-Fi 6E protocol.

° High-end models of the upcoming iPhone 13 lineup will sport an upgraded ultra-wide camera with autofocus.

° Some, perhaps all, models will have LiDAR sensors.
