For every new iPhone generation, Apple chooses a new full color – last year it was blue before it was green. This year, it could be orange, as can be seen in recent reproductions by Ian Zelbo (who also reproduced the MacBook and MacBook Air).
This is a pretty light color, right? Remember that Apple typically splits the full color in two, ie. “Pacific Blue” on iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max is less saturated than “Blue” on 12 and 12 mini. This was also the case with the 11 series (“Midnight Green” vs. “Green”), plus the finish is different (matte for the pros and glossy for the other two).

The reproductions here show vanilla iPhone 13, which means that 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max can get a more restrained painting work – say bronze instead of orange. Or this may be one of the colors of the regular iPhones (they tend to have lighter shades) that have no counterpart in the Pro series.
By the way, we’ve already seen a photo of an iPhone 13 mini-prototype in blue, plus renderings of the iPhone 13 in Product Red. In addition to these, we will probably also get standard white and black / gray colorways.

Apart from color, the iPhone 13 generation mostly sticks to the same design with a few exceptions – a smaller notch, a slightly larger camera bump on the back and a few other details (eg LiDAR on all models).
