The iPhone 13 is finally here, along with the release of its other brand-new smaller and bigger models. The new iPhone 13 features a design that is nearly identical to the last generation of the iPhone, with flat edges and an edge-to-edge display. Unfortunately, there’s one small change you should be aware of if you're planning on keeping your old case from an earlier model. Apple has switched up its casing so it won't fit anymore!
The dimensions between these two models are nearly identical, however, the new iPhone 13 is 0.25 mm thicker with one big difference. The larger size change in design elements means that some cases will no longer accommodate either phone, which can make things tricky when deciding what type of coverage fits your needs best! The comparative dimensions are:iPhone 12: 146.7mm x 71.5mm x 7.4mm
iPhone 13: 146.7mm x 71.5mm x 7.65mm
The camera bump on the back of this phone is 1 millimeter larger than before, meaning you are unable use your old iPhone 12 case. As a result, iPhone 12 covers with small camera bump cutouts won't fit on the iPhone 13. But don’t worry. There are new capabilities for taking pictures and videos that make up for it, so enjoy an entertainment-focused device in hand instead of one solely intended to be used as a communication tool or business asset.
Finally, squashing your new iPhone into an old case might seem like a good idea, but remember why you bought the protective gear in the first place; to keep it protected.
