Apple (AAPL) is expected to unveil four new iPhones today during a virtual media event held from California: the iPhone 13 mini, the iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

The devices likely won’t have any groundbreaking design changes or features — or at least compared to last year’s 5G announcement. But there’s a long list of potential feature changes under the hood that could be coming.

Here’s what to expect:

Changes to the display: Apple could finally do away with the “notch” at the top of its display, which holds its TrueDepth camera, speakers, microphone and other sensors, to give a less obstructed view of the touchscreen. It could also get an always-on display and an under-display Touch ID.

Updated camera system: The iPhone 13 and more budget-friendly iPhone 13 mini are rumored to have two rear-camera lenses placed diagonally for the first time, potentially to make room for a larger sensor. Meanwhile, the three rear-camera lenses on iPhone 13 Pro models could come in different sizes and sit inside a thicker bump, reportedly for advancements with stabilization. 

Advanced camera features: Apple could offer Portrait mode for videos and astrophotography support to take pictures of the night sky

A massive storage option: In a recent investor note, Wedbush analyst Dan Ives said the iPhone 13 may come with a 1 terabyte storage option, double the Pro’s maximum current storage capacity of 512 GB.

Other bells and whistles: Satellite technology support for sending messages in emergency situations, a faster refresh rate for better gaming, an improved 5G chip and a bigger battery that promises to last all day
