Apple iPhone 13 Reportedly Launching Third Week Of Next Month
Last year’s Apple‘s iPhone 12 lineup was a bit later – launched in the month of October because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But this time around, the company is going back to its usual timeframe and the next-generation iPhone series is expected to launch in September, which is next month.
According to a new report from MacRumors, citing an investor note by Daniel Ives of Wedbush, it claims that Apple will officially launch the iPhone 13 series in the third week of September but the exact date is not yet known.
However, Apple typically hosts the launch event on Tuesday and we expect the company to continue the trend. This means that the launch event could take place on 21st September. Even if the new report turns out to be untrue, then Apple could launch the iPhone 13 lineup on 7th September or 14th September.
In the same report, it is said that Daniel Ives is expecting Apple to manufacture between 130 million to 150 million units of its next-generation iPhone by the end of this year and about 35 percent to 45 percent will be built in Q3 2021.
Design-wise, the Apple iPhone 13 lineup is expected to come with a slightly smaller notch and will have a 120Hz refresh rate. Notably, the higher refresh rate is expected only in the Pro variants. It is also being reiterated that the company will also be offering a 1TB internal storage model this time.
The report also claimed to have support for mmWave 5G for countries outside of the United States. The phones are said to come with the space-saving internal circuitry, which should allow the company to offer a larger battery inside the device.
A recent report claims that the new iPhones will come with support for 25W fast charging technology, a slight upgrade from the current 22W charging. It is also expected to come with a LiDAR scanner.
The upcoming flagship smartphone series from Apple will come with notable hardware upgrades. It points out to a faster and more power-efficient chipset manufactured using a 5nm+ process, which is presumably the upcoming Apple A15 Bionic.
