Accessories maker Benks has apparently shared images of the cases it has made for the forthcoming iPhone 13 series as well as the dummy models they are based on. The pictures were posted on the Chinese social networking platform Weibo and have been reposted by tipsters Ice Universe and DuanRui on Twitter.

Only the back is visible and the images don’t really reveal anything we don’t already know: compared to their predecessors, the new models will have bigger camera bumps and sensors.
iPhone 13 cases also show bigger camera cutouts

Apple has seemingly increased the depth of the camera bump because it wants lenses to sit flush with the camera modules à la the new iPad Pro.
The camera bumps on the new phones are also rumored to be diagonally bigger, something these images reinforce. The change might not be apparent on the mini and standard variants because their camera islands are only expected to be a smidgen bigger than their predecessors.
That’s seemingly because instead of increasing the size of the bump significantly, Apple has changed the layout from vertical to diagonal to accommodate larger sensors.
The camera bulges on the Pro models, on the other hand, are expected to grow from approximately 28mm by 30mm to 36mm by 37mm. The images also show that the bump is closer to the edges now.
As for other design aspects, we hear the new phones will be a little thicker than their predecessors, presumably to make room for bigger batteries, and the notch is going to shrink in size.
The higher-end models may also come with a 120Hz ProMotion display. The new phones will probably be powered by the A15 Bionic chip and there is a faint chance that reverse wireless charging will be supported.
