Packaging leak seemingly confirms iPhone 13 name
With the launch of Apple’s next iPhone nearing, a new image shared on Chinese social network Weibo (via “DuanRui“) has seemingly confirmed that this year’s new iPhone will indeed be called the “iPhone 13,” despite rumors that suggested Apple would use the “iPhone 12S” name instead due to the superstition that the number 13 is unlucky.

Let me emphasize again that I am not a leaker. I don't have first-hand information. I just reprint some information that I have seen that I feel is relatively reliable. pic.twitter.com/Avy9ndDT4Q

A survey by SellCell last month showed that one out of five iPhone and iPad users would be put off by Apple announcing an “iPhone 13” due to superstition. Instead, 74% of people surveyed said they would would prefer a different name than iPhone 13 for the next-gen iPhones, with ‘iPhone (2021)’ voted the most suitable name at 38%.
Reports suggest the all four iPhone 13 models will feature upgraded displays, larger batteries, a shrunken notch, expanded support for mmWave 5G, and a more efficient A-series chip. The new devices are being described as a “classic Apple S model,” despite carrying the iPhone 13 name.
