September is usually an exciting month. Not only do we move from the heat of summer to the cold autumn days, but it’s usually the same time frame when Apple announces new iPhone models and releases the next version of iOS.
And yet, as September approaches each year, it seems like it’s too early to start talking about Apple’s next phone. But here we are, almost a year after the release of the iPhone 12 lineup, getting ready for the iPhone 13. Of course Apple has not officially announced nor acknowledged that the iPhone 13 (or maybe it will be called iPhone 12S?) Is coming. So, instead, we have to rely on rumors to peek behind the iPhone screen.
Current rumors paint a good picture of what we should expect, and on top of that, we can make some educated guesses about what the iPhone 13 will do and get a better picture of it. That said, we don’t know everything, and thank you all for joining the event before Apple CEO Tim Cook steps off the stage and details the new hardware, below. This is how all rumors should be treated.
What will the next iPhone be called?
- Can be iPhone 12S or iPhone 13.
- Mark Gorman thinks the iPhone 13 is a name.
- To differentiate between models, we will now go with the iPhone 13.
Apple has traditionally used the TickTack approach to update iPhone design, hardware and names. For example, the iPhone 6 was followed by the iPhone 6S. Recently, however, we’ve seen the company pull in favor of extending the S series from one, as it did just a year after the iPhone 11 with the release of the iPhone 11.
In the August 15 edition of Mark Gorman’s own Power on Newsletter, he says he expects Apple to use the name iPhone 13 – or the full Dutch number, as Apple introduced the iPad a few years ago. What happened to the line?
Any name could be in our future, but for ease of identifying the new iPhone, we’re going with the iPhone 13 unless Apple CEO Tim Cook says otherwise.
When will the iPhone 13 be available?
- Possibly in the third quarter.
- 2020 pushed back the iPhone launch by a few weeks.
- September 14 event, September 24 launch.
Typically, Apple announces new iPhone models in September and then releases them a few weeks later. That time was pushed back a bit in 2020 due to epidemics, with the iPhone 12 lineup launch split between October 23 and November 13.
This week, rumors began circulating that Apple would hold this year’s iPhone event on Tuesday, September 14th. Pre-orders for the iPhone 13 will begin on September 17, and orders will begin arriving on September 24.
Earlier, in a note to investors that Macroms viewed and reported, Wadebush analyst Daniel Ives claimed that the iPhone 13 line would launch in the third week of September, the same as Apple’s previous launch dates. Similar. ).
How much will the iPhone 13 cost?
- It is too early to know.
- But we do not expect a big increase or decrease in price.
Pricing is always the hardest information before Apple’s announcement. It’s been a month or so since this announcement, we’ve seen no indication of what to expect in terms of price as we talk about the next crop of iPhones.
We don’t expect Apple to raise prices, at least not on base storage models, but strange things have happened.
What will the iPhone 13 look like?
- Apple has just changed the design, don’t expect two years in a row.
- Small fee ID mark is speculation.
With the launch of the iPhone 12 and its flat-edge design, Apple has completely reshaped the overall look of the iPhone line. Because of this, we don’t expect Apple to change the design of the iPhone 13 much, if at all.
There have been reports that the iPhone X has been at the forefront of iPhone display since the iPhone X was smaller, so this may be a minor change in design. The rumor was recently backed up in the August 15 edition of Powerman’s Gorman, which further boosted its credibility. Otherwise, out of the new colors, and perhaps a large camera array on the back of the phone, don’t live up to your expectations for a new design.
What features will the iPhone 13 offer for the specs?
- No ports and no return of Touch ID, maybe?
- 120Hz always on display? It is possible
- A better camera system is always a safe bet.
Features and specifications may be something we may start to get closer to announcing, but right now, reports are all over the place and possibly include things Apple is working on, working on, or working on. Is considering
For example, last year, rumors suggested that we would see an iPhone with a 120Hz display refresh rate. That hasn’t happened, and it’s not clear if that will ever happen, although there’s speculation that Sharp Display Tech will launch the iPhone this year. It’s possible that Apple is still working on a faster display and that was always the case for the iPhone 13 (or 14). If I were to guess, we would see a 120 Hz display in the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max this year, but not the base iPhone 13 (and the iPhone 13 mini, if any).
There is also speculation that Apple will get rid of the lighting port under the iPhone. Instead, Apple will use its new MagSafe technology to charge the phone and sync data. Another possibility is that Apple removes the Lightning port and replaces it with a USB-C port, such as the MacBook, iPad Air and iPad Pro lines. Personally, I don’t see Apple doing that yet. I would like Apple to switch to USB-C in all of its products, but replacing the lighting connector on the iPad model has been a slow process.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gorman reports in his weekly newsletter Power On that Apple is developing the iPhone with a new A15 processor, smaller notch and possibly an Apple Watch, always on display. Oh, and Gorman also suggests that 120Hz is possible. He reiterated these expectations in his August 15 newsletter.
A new portrait mode camera feature is also being discussed, but instead of blurring the background of the image, the effect will be applied to the video. Gorman reported that this feature will be limited to promodels and will be called cinema video.
Another rumor that may be the product of wishful thinking is that we will see the return of Touch ID, Apple’s fingerprint sensor tech in the iPhone 13. Side buttons, such as the fourth-generation iPad Air, or embedded under the display, as we’ve seen on many Android phones and tablets over the years.
Any option would be welcome, especially with face covering. Fee ID is almost useless. Although Apple has added a tool to make it easier to use in iOS 14.5, it’s still not ideal if you own an Apple Watch.
Whether these rumors can be based on reality or wishful thinking is difficult to say right now. We can expect that Apple will upgrade the camera with a faster processor, better GPU, improve or maintain battery life. These are all basic upgrades to the new iPhone.
