We are still weeks away from September, when the NFL, pumpkin spice, and back-to school season will return.
This is also the occasion for the introduction of a new iPhone.
Apple hosts an event every September to reveal details about the next iPhone and launch it days later.
Apple had to change its strategy last year in order to launch the iPhone 12 because of the COVID pandemic. Apple pushed back its announcement until October and launched the iPhone 12 on October 23rd. Apple also launched the iPhone 12 Mini in November.
When will the next iPhone be released? It will be called iPhone 13? What features will it have? We know what we think we know so far.
Analyst says iPhone 13 will launch in September
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives predicted Tuesday that Apple would launch the iPhone 13 in the third week of September.
Ives cited checks of Asia’s supply chains and stated that the next iPhone will represent between 35% and 45% of all iPhones built in Asia.
Ives stated that “this positive outlook gives us increased confidence that 2021’s launch timing will remain ‘normal’.”
iPhone 13 storage upto 1 TB
Ives projects that the iPhone 13 will offer a substantial upgrade in storage, reaching a new maximum of 1 Terabyte. The iPhone 12 Pro with 512GB storage is the model with the most storage.
Ives stated that all iPhone 13 models will likely be compatible with Lidar, remote sensing technology which enhances the smartphone’s ability to create augmented reality.
Better chips, plus Portrait Mode for video
Reporter Mark Gurman, who has been plugged in to Apple for years, is expecting a better chip to beef up the speed of the iPhone, as well as Cinematic Video, which is basically a version of Portrait mode for video.
An iPhone battery that is larger?
The new iPhone could offer a significant increase in battery life. ZDNet reports the next iPhones will support significantly larger batteries, which means we might spend less time charging our smartphones.
