One thing that should happen for any phone before it is launched is regulatory certification with various official bodies around the world, and the process has already begun for the iPhone 13.
Consomac (a French site focused on Apple news) has looked as the iPhone 13 ranges on the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) database.
Seven model numbers are listed, notably A2628, A2630, A2634, A2635, A2640, A2643 and A2645, and while the iPhone 13 is not mentioned by name, they are listed as Apple smartphones, and by numbering. Turns out they are new models. iPhone 12 range.

So it’s almost certainly the iPhone 13 range that we’re looking at, and the information on the EEC is generally accurate – not that there’s too much information here, regarding the model numbers that are listed.
Also note that those seven models will not be seven different phones, but rather they are likely to have different storage capacities or other minor differences.
Still, with the iPhone 13 range probably landing in September, we’d expect to start seeing these database listings right now, so this suggests that the upcoming phones are indeed on track for a September launch.
We’ve heard elsewhere that the iPhone 13 range will feature better cameras and Face ID, as well as a 120Hz refresh rate screen (at least on the Pro model), a LiDAR scanner for all models, and a smaller notch with other improvements.
It doesn’t look like this will be the biggest year for iPhone upgrades, but these are still likely to be one of the best handsets of 2021, and with the EEC already listing them, it looks like the wait is almost over. could.
