Apple is famously reticent when it comes to giving out information regarding its products. But as per the latest leaks, we can expect Apple iPhone 13 anytime in September 2021. The upcoming iPhone will come along with a lot of upgrades that include an ultra-wide 48 Megapixel camera, 120 Hz LTPO display, and much more. Here’s every information available with us regarding the next-gen iPhone.
The leaks regarding iPhone 13 were in the news even before iPhone 12 was announced by Tim Cook in 2020. And as per our digging, similar to iPhone 12, iPhone 13 will also be available in four models and offer an improved battery life.
So, what’s the possible iPhone 13 release date? What features can we expect? What’s the satellite communication capability that iPhone 13 is expected to have? And most importantly, what’s the expected price? If these questions have been bothering your mind, then we are here to help you. So, sit back, grab a cup of tea, and prepare yourself to check out all the available information regarding iPhone 13.
iPhone 13 Release Date
Even though the release of the iPhone 12 was affected by the coronavirus pandemic, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that iPhone 13 will not face any delay and will be launched on the scheduled September 2021 release date.
If everything goes according to Apple’s release date pattern, we could expect the device to hit the market on the fourth Friday of September 2021, i.e. 24th September. Even a FrontPage Tech report confirms this theory, and as per them, pre-bookings will start from September 17th and the launch will be on September 24th.
However, as per a report posted on MacRumors, iPhone 13 could hit shelves on September 17th, followed by the launch of AirPods 3 on 30th September. It’s possible that the release could be further delayed, as Apple is currently struggling to hire workers. Additionally, even before the release, the demand for iPhone 13 is already very high. As per a survey done in the US, 44% of current iPhone users are ready to buy iPhone 13.
iPhone 13 Price Prediction
We’re yet to get any trustable source or leak regarding iPhone 13 pricing. But still, there are plenty of things going on in the market through which we can calculate the approx price of the next-gen iPhone.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 was launched in January this year at a lesser price than the Galaxy S20. And since its launch, inflation has hit the market. And according to many analysts, the shortage of semiconductor chips can result in rising in tech prices.
We will have to see whether Apple also does the same as Samsung, i.e. launching new series at a lesser price than its predecessor. However, it seems unlikely to happen as being such a huge brand, it will be stupid enough to get affected by price-cutting. As per our digging, iPhone 13 price should be more likely around iPhone 12 – $799. And the same will repeat for other iPhone 13 models – iPhone 13 Mini ~ $699, iPhone 13 Pro ~ $999, and iPhone 13 Pro Max ~ $1,099.
iPhone 13 Features
The iPhone 13 line-up may be similar to iPhone 12 family in terms of screen size too. The iPhone 13 Mini can come along with a 5.4-inch screen, iPhone 13, and 13 Pro with 6.1-Inch, and iPhone 13 Pro Max with 6.7-Inch. In terms of the powerhouse, the next-gen iPhone series features A15 Bionic chip, based on TSMC’s 5nm+ manufacturing process.
The most exciting news so far is that the upcoming Apple series will feature a Qualcomm X60 modem. The X60 will also make sure that you receive the best connections speed without draining much battery percentage. Further, the device will have a smaller notch and a 120Hz refresh rate for smooth scrolling.
The A15 chipset is expected to be 20% more battery efficient than its predecessor. Combine this feature with the expected iPhone 13 Pro Max battery size of 4352 mAh. Now coming to the storage, iPhone 13 series is rumored to have storage between 64GB and 512GB.
In terms of camera, the iPhone 13 will feature a 48 Megapixel ultra-wide camera with autofocus. And this time we will have a bigger camera bump. Further, all the iPhone 13 models will come along with LiDAR sensors. As per the render leak by MySmartPrice, iPhone 13 will have a diagonal camera arrangement. According to us, this arrangement will make sure that the device has enough space for the LiDAR sensor. For taking beautiful selfies and Zoom video calls, iPhone 13 will have ToF selfie cameras. It will use artificial intelligence to recognize your facial expression and gestures.
Lastly, the iPhone 13 is expected to come along with the support of Wi-Fi 6E. This technology will make sure you get faster Internet speed compared to Wi-Fi 6.
iPhone 13 Satellite Phone Feature
iPhone 13 is rumored to come along with the feature of satellite communication. It means your iPhone 13 will be able to make calls and texts even in an area that doesn’t have network coverage. However, there isn’t any surety whether this feature will come or not, even though two strong sources have confirmed it. Furthermore, according to Bloomberg, this feature will only allow you to make emergency calls.
According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the Qualcomm x60 chipset will make sure that the iPhone gets easily connected to the low earth orbit satellites. This feature will let users contact their emergency contacts in a remote area that doesn’t have any network coverage. Unlike normal iMessage, this service will have a character limit. And the messages sent through this service will be denoted by a grey bubble. As per Bloomberg, this feature won’t be available in iPhone 13 until next year. And since Apple hasn’t confirmed this news, we recommend you to not take this update too seriously.
These were all the available information regarding iPhone 13 release date, pricing, and features. However, there isn’t any official confirmation regarding any of these leaks we recommend you to take these leaks with a pinch of salt.
