Apple’s iPhone 13 series will be announced in the third week of September, reports MacRumors citing an investor note by Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives.
Apple last year had to delay iPhone 12’s unveiling to October because of challenges posed by the pandemic. Various reports have indicated that the Cupertino giant will revert to a September launch this year.
Per today’s report, the iPhone 13 will be launched in the third week of September. Since Apple usually keeps its iPhone announcement events on Tuesdays, September 7, September 14, and September 21 are likely dates for iPhone 13’s reveal.
Ives expects Apple to manufacture between 130 million to 150 million iPhone units in the second half of 2021, 35 to 45 percent of which are iPhone 13 “builds in Q3.”
Will iPhone 13 have 1TB?
The new models will come in the same sizes as the current variants and will retain largely the same design, with the exception of a smaller notch. New camera features and improved speed will be one of the main selling points.
The handsets are rumored to get a Portrait video model, higher-quality ProRes format for video recording, and a filters-like system. The Pro models will allegedly feature an improved 6-element Ultra Wide lens with autofocus.
Ives also claims that all the new models will get LiDAR sensors for better AR experiences and improved autofocus in dimly lit environments.
The iPhone 13 series is forecasted to stick with the current pricing structure.
