Apple’s upcoming iPhone 13 model numbers have been leaked thanks to the EEC. Apparently, the Eurasian Economic Commission requires products that use encryption and cryptographic tools to be registered in a timely manner. According to the Nashville Chatter Class website, the Cupertino-based tech giant has already submitted its upcoming 2021 iPhone flagships for certification.
All iPhone 13 Model Numbers
A Russian-language regulatory filing shares the model numbers of the upcoming iPhone 13 terminals. We can identify seven different products including: A2628, A2630, A2634, A2635, A2640, A2643, and A2645.
If we compare the model numbers of the iPhone 12 lineup we can make the following prediction:
- iPhone 13 Model Numbers: A2628, A2630, A2634, A2635
- iPhone 13 Pro Model Numbers: A2640, A2643, A2645.
Fact: Apple might not have registered all its upcoming iPhone 13 and 13 Pro models on the Eurasian market, because it might not intend to sell all of them in this region.
Will Apple Release Seven iPhone 13 Flagships?
No, that’s not the case! As noticed above, the Cupertino-based tech giant is manufacturing and labeling iPhone models to meet various criteria and legislations of the region that’s going to be sold in.
For example, Japan requires by law that a smartphone’s Camera shutter sound for taking pictures, can’t be muted. This has been enforced to fight the rising trend of upskirt photos. This is why Apple manufactures and sells a different iPhone model for the Japanese market.
Fact: Because of cellular network differences, the iPhone 12 Pro has different model numbers for the U.S. version and the European market. Below you can have a look at all iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro model numbers! What do you notice? There are eight different models, four for the iPhone 12 and four more for the higher-end lineup!

iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max
Most leaks and rumors speak about the iPhone 13 lineup having an identical configuration with its 2020 predecessors. This means that we have to expect four different device sizes (5.4-inches, 6.1-inches (2x), and 6.7-inches), two of them being lower-cost model, while the other two ending up as high-end products.
Fact: No design changes have been predicted for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, excepting a smaller notch, a slightly thicker camera module and a diagonal camera module layout for the lower-cost devices. Take a look at these leaked iPhone 13 case renders to have a better understanding of these changes.
