The new iPhone 13 is out and this time it packs a bigger battery than ever. But, how much?
Well, The iPhone Pro Max is apparently going to have a whopping 1 TB of internal space. Plus numerous other cool features. So, are you ready?
The new iPhone 13 Pro is expected to come with 1TB of internal space.
Apple's California Streaming event will unveil the iPhone 13 series on Tuesday, September 14, 2013. The storage options available with the new smartphone range have been revealed in a leak that was made before the official launch. Four smartphones from the iPhone 13 series will be released by the technology giant based in Cupertino.
Apple will announce four new iPhone models at the event, as well as the AirPods 3, and sell them with the AirPods 2. Apple's launch event will be available live on its YouTube channel or website.
Ming-Chi Kuo's statement on this news
Ming-Chi Kuo, a market analyst, stated in a MacRumors research note that the storage capacity for the new iPhone 13 models would be 128GB to 1TB. According to reports, the Vanilla iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini smartphones will have 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage options. The iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro Max should have 128 GB storage options, 256GB, 512GB, and 1 TB storage options, respectively. The iPhone 13 Pro Max will have the most storage capacity of any iPhone model.
Kuo also claimed that Apple would showcase the AirPods 3 alongside the iPhone 13 lineup at California Streaming. According to the analyst, AirPods 3 could be even more expensive than AirPods 2 (or the same price as the previous generation model), which will receive a price reduction. However, Kuo predicts that Apple will continue selling the older AirPods to those who prefer the design to the Airpods Pro-like fit that is expected in this new model.
Specifications for the iPhone 13 series
According to earlier rumors, the iPhone 13-series smartphones may have a smaller display notch than the previous iterations and larger camera sensors. In addition, the iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro Max will be equipped with ultra-wide cameras that are better than the previous iterations.
The iPhone 13 mini and vanilla iPhone 13 should be available in black, blue, pink, and purple colors. The iPhone 13 pro max and iPhone 13 max could come in silver, bronze, gold, and silver colors.
The whole iPhone 13 range could be more robust and thicker than ever before. According to reports, the iPhone 13 Pro Max has an 18-20% battery capacity than its predecessor. Pro models also have a refresh rate up to 120 Hz and can run in power-saving mode at 60 Hz.
According to previous leaks, the iPhone 13 could have a portrait cinematic feature. This feature uses an electronic imaging stabilization system (EIS), also known as a warp. This feature allows users to blur the background while recording video. In addition, the new models also include night mode and optical image stabilization (OIS).
A new satellite feature is also being added to the iPhone 13 models. It allows users to send quick emergency messages and SOS distress signals to each other in case of a disaster. However, this feature may not work in certain markets and areas without a cellular network.
The expected price rise for the upcoming iPhone lineup was anticipated due to a global shortage of chips. However, recent reports suggest it might not. Apple is also working to improve its FaceID technology. As a result, the upcoming iPhone 13 models will be able to have an always-on display, in addition to Wi-Fi 6E integration.
iPhone 13 vs. iPhone 12 comparison
Apple may release four different iPhone 13 variants.
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 13 will be available in four versions, similar to the iPhone 12. These include the iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Mini, the iPhone 13 Pro, and the iPhone 13 Pro Max. A statement by Apple with the Federal Communications Commission adds validity to this theory, revealing four "New phone" variants that might operate with such a new version of Apple's MagSafe charger.
The size of the camera may vary.
According to a May MacRumors rumor, the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro models could be thicker than their iPhone 12 predecessors. The new models will be 7.57mm thicker than the iPhone 12 models. But it's a slight difference most people won't notice.
MacRumors reported that the camera bump could become more significant. Whilst the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro have camera bumps ranging from 1.5mm to 1.7mm, the iPhone 13 has a 2.51mm hump, and the 13 Pro has a 3.56mm hump. The lenses will not stick out as much on older phones due to their larger size.
The iPhone 13 series may cost more than its predecessor, the iPhone 12 series.
As per a DigiTimes source from August, Apple is currently considering boosting the price of its 2021 range to cover rising chip production costs from TSMC. According to the report, Apple's supplier wants to increase the price for "advanced process technologies" by 20% by January 2022. However, based on the report, it's not clear how much the iPhone could go up.
The majority of phones, including the iPhone 12, refresh at 60 frames per second or 60Hz. However, some phones, such as the Galaxy S21 or the OnePlus 8 Pro, refresh at 120Hz. The iPhone 13's display is expected to boast a 120Hz refresh rate, according to rumors. A phone's refresh rate determines how smooth and fast it feels to scroll through websites and apps. Although it was also reported for the iPhone 12, it appears to be more plausible this time.
Why is Apple giving such a high upgrade on Internal Storage?
Well, for starters. The iPhone, unlike other smartphones, does not have a dedicated slot for external storage. Thus, amping up the internal storage was the only way to satisfy the needs of the customers.
