New rumors about iPhone 13: no Lightning physical port, software reinstallation via the internet and 1 TB storage

The next generation of iPhone, whether it will be called 12S or 13, is expected with a series of changes compared to the current 12th generation. First, some of the changes may be visible on the outside, with a smaller cutout on the screen, but others may be less obvious at first glance. Rumors suggest better cameras, a faster screen and, of course, a more powerful processor. However, a rumor that keeps popping up again and again in the online environment: Apple could finally eliminate the Lightning port.

iPhone 13 could bring changes both inside and out
While many will enjoy the fact that Apple may finally give up the Lightning port, they may not be exactly happy with the solution that Apple is proposing. Instead, we may not receive anything in return. Apple has USB-C ports on iPad Pro tablets and Mac and MacBook computers, but not on phones, and this move could lead to an iPhone without physical ports.

Charging is already possible since the iPhone X using Qi wireless technology, while the iPhone 12 generation has introduced MagSafe chargers, which use wireless charging with magnets for increased efficiency and higher power. However, if the upload is “somewhat” solved with MagSafe, reinstalling software without a physical port has a not very conventional solution.

Because you will no longer be able to connect a phone using a cable to a computer for emergency iOS reinstallation, Apple is preparing to integrate a software solution directly on your phone, which allows you to reinstall the operating system independently. This feature is called Internet Recovery and is similar to the solution that Apple already uses on Mac computers.

The information comes from, which has industry sources in an article that includes exclusive information about the new functionality. It seems that the process of restoring software over the Internet takes about 2.5 times longer than the standard one on a cable PC, but it is generally a fairly rare process, which is often done in service, even if and users have this option at home. Given that this solution requires iTunes, and most iPhone users don’t even use this software anymore, probably not many will be affected.
