A new leak claims that the rear LiDAR sensor will not be coming to all models in the forthcoming “iPhone 13” range after all.
Despite previous reports that all of the next iPhonewould gain a rear LiDAR sensor, a new claim says it will still be exclusive to the “iPhone 13 Pro,” and “iPhone 13 Pro Max.” There are no further details, with leaker “Dylandkt” saying only that it is for “one reason or another.”
LiDAR will only be coming to the pro iPhone models. Earlier this year it seemed Apple wanted to release all iPhone 13/12S models with LiDAR but due to one reason or another, it won’t be happening this year.

As yet, no other source has claimed there will be a delay in bringing LiDAR to all iPhones. However, leaker Dylandkt has a track record, having been correct in reporting that the M1 processor would come to the iPad Pro.
