iPhone 12S or iPhone 13? This question has been present in the Apple world for almost a year, at least until Apple leakers started talking only about the iPhone 13 a few months ago. However, before that there were rumors that Apple was planning an iPhone 12S for this year.
12S or 13: What’s the difference?
For some users, the name doesn’t play much of a role: whether it’s called the iPhone 12S or 13 doesn’t matter, as long as the new iPhone has a bunch of new features on board. But by giving an iPhone an S suffix, many consider Apple to be signaling that it’s a minor upgrade.
This has been the crux of the desire of Apple fans to know the name of the new phone. Will this year’s update bring minor or major changes to the iPhone?

The latest rumors indicated that the iPhone was going to receive a full number update, hence why everyone was referring to the iPhone 13. Now a photo has appeared on Twitter that was initially shared on Wiebo.
Twitter user DuanRui (who denies being a leaker, though we’ve seen his name associated with several Apple reports recently) says he has no first-hand information, just sharing something he thinks is “relatively reliable.”

The photo you share appears to show an Apple sticker intended for packaging. In it you can clearly see the name iPhone 13. However, we must be cautious with this information. Apple has previously used arrow stickers on its iPhone packaging, but with a different look.
However, it’s possible that the packaging design of the next generation of iPhones will change, especially now that Apple has dispensed with the plug to allow for flatter packaging.
DuanRui also tweeted the following images recently, which apparently indicate that the new iPhone’s camera lens will be larger, the notch smaller, and the new iPhone thicker than the iPhone 12. Also, the iPhone 13 Pro’s camera bump Max appears to be thicker than the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
