Apple is said to be optimistic about the sales of its upcoming iPhone 13 models. 

Sources told Bloomberg that Apple has tasked suppliers to build up to 90 million iPhone 13 units by the end of the year. This is a huge increase from the typical order of 75 million units for the past few years. Apple is betting on the roll-out of Covid-19 vaccines and 5G connectivity to drive sales of the iPhone 13. 

The sources reiterated what have been reported in the past few months. The iPhone 13 lineup is expected to be an incremental upgrade over the current iPhone 12 models, which means there will be hardly any design and screen size changes. The notch will be reduced thanks to the smaller front-facing camera and Face ID components.

According to Bloomberg, at least one of the new iPhone 13 models will use LTPO display that supports 120Hz refresh rates. Other upgrades include more advanced video recording features, improved optical zoom, and an upgraded chipset. 

While there are rumours of an in-display Touch ID coming to the iPhone 13, Bloomberg claims it is unlikely to debut this year even though Apple has tested the feature. The iPhone 13 lineup is also believed to be announced in September.
