iPhone 13. We all know how secretive Apple can be when it comes to the announcement of its new tech products. However, according to Rumors from a different source, the Apple iPhone 13 is likely to be released in September 2021.
And the phone is expected to pack a host of upgrades like an ultra-wide camera lens, a super-fast 5G modem, and Apple’s first-ever 120Hz display.
So if you have been wanting to buy the latest Apple phone with great updates, then the iPhone 13 might just be the best choice for you.
The very first rumor of the iPhone came up long before Tim Cook, Apple CEO had unveiled the iPhone 12, back then in 2020.
And of recent, there is great speculation that Apple could bring back the TouchID and talk about the upcoming device sporting an uncommon diagonal camera arrangement.
From all we have heard so far, the upcoming device will offer a 120Hz LTPO display on both of the Pro models. It will also have an improved battery life (all thanks to a more efficient 5G modem) and important upgrades to the all-important cameras.
And that includes a LiDAR sensor on iPhone 13 and the mini together with a new portrait video mode.
So when will Apple release the device? How much it will cost? How is the design like? You will get to see answers to all those questions. Just get a coffee and relax.
iPhone 13 Leaks
The latest updates on the upcoming device include:
- Proof showing smaller notches on the iPhone 13.
- An iPhone 13 mini prototype leaked showing a new diagonal camera module.
The iPhone 12 went back to having flat sides with a new design, and this literally means that the upcoming iPhone 13 likely will not change the external design so much year-over-year.
In other words, the more a design can be reused, then the wider the margins Apple can make on their new models.
The most visible changes to the upcoming phone might just be the camera bump and notch. We expect the camera bump to change from different bumps for each of the lenses to just a single sheet of glass covering every one of the lenses.
This would reduce jiggle when the phone flat on its back.
The notch is also expected to be reduced or eliminated.
We are not so sure the colors the iPhone 13 will be released in. But as rumors have it, the 13 Pro models might come in bronze color while the other models might come in matte black.
Though we haven’t heard so much about the iPhone 13, however, rumors have it that the 13 pro and the 13 Pro Max will offer a new 6-element ultrawide lens. It will as well offer autofocus capability.
The iPhone 12 Pro models have a 5-element ultrawide angle lens. So the more elements in a lens, the better the quality of the image.
Another rumor came in that Apple is in search of suppliers for a folded lens camera that will upgrade the optical camera zoom of the iPhone 13.
And the periscope-like design actually means that the telephoto would be stacked vertically instead of horizontally. This means that you can increase the optical magnification without having to increase the phone size.
Having Apple is keeping the same display size as the iPhone 12, Apple could also make other changes to the screens of the phone.
Following a report from ET News, the tech company will adopt a 120Hz refresh rate for the 6.1 inches 13 Pro as well as the 6.7 inches13 Pro Max. This will enable smoother scrolling plus improved gameplay and video playback.
According to a new leak, the iPhone 13 will get an LTPO panel. The source also stated that Samsung Display will be the company to do that.
Storage and Specs.
According to rumors, the upcoming device will raise the bar when it comes to its storage and specs. Well, so far, the most interesting news is that the iPhone 13 range will boast Qualcomm’s X60 modem.
This report was according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
The iPhone 13 is also set for a further boost. All thanks to Apple’s rumored A15 Bionic chip.
Now talking about the storage, we expect the iPhone 13 to come between 64GB and 512GB.
Also, rumors also have it that the phone will support Wi-Fi 6E, which is an improved version of Wi-Fi 6. And it is said to deliver faster mobile internet speeds.
iPhone 13 Price
Several rumors had it that the upcoming device will come in the same four sizes as the iPhone 12 which is:
- a 5.4 inch 13 mini
- 6.1 inch iPhone 13
- a 6.1 inch 13 Pro
- as well as a 6.7 inch 13 Pro Max.
So now talking about the price of the iPhone 13. We still expect the device to somehow fall in the same price range as the iPhone 12.
The reason is that Apple tries to keep its pricing for each new generation of iPhone closer to the one that preceded it.
The price of the iPhone 12 range are $699, $799, $999 and $1,099 respectively.
If the upcoming phone will follow Apple’s pattern for the previous launches of the previous iPhone, then we expect to see Apple release the device in September 2021. Probably 24th of September, 2021.
