We’ve only got a month till Apple’s new iPhone 13 series launches, and we’ve been hard at work collecting up and cutting through the biggest iPhone leaks. For the past few months, new iPhone speculations have been surfacing from a variety of sources, and we now have a clear image of some of the specs for the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, and iPhone 13 small. We think we’ve got a pretty good picture of the new iPhone 13 models based on our research, so we’ve condensed the rumours into a bite-sized chunk below… as well as tonnes more detail where we explain everything you need to know about the new iPhone range.
According to a report, the iPhone 13 series would have larger batteries, better 5G, greater power, and the same pricing.
When will the iPhone 13 be released? The iPhone 13 is expected to be announced in September 2021, but a precise launch or sale date has yet to be determined. Our best bet is that the new iPhone will be announced on September 7 or 14.
iPhone 13 price
Expect a price that’s close to the iPhone 12 range, with one leak claiming it’ll be the same. The iPhone 12 small, which is the most affordable of the 2020 iPhones, costs $699 / £699 / AU$1,199, while the iPhone 12 Pro Max costs $1,099 / £1,099 / AU$1,849.
Little is likely to change from the iPhone 12, but it appears that the rear camera will be redesigned. On the two cheaper phones, it appears to have a diagonal lens layout, while the rest of the phones are expected to be comparable to last year’s models.
Apple is expected to introduce various new colors with the iPhone 13 series, including pink and orange. Along with those, we can anticipate seeing colors like purple, black, and white that were shown in the previous generation.
Although screen sizes and pixels are believed to remain consistent across the iPhone 13 lineup, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are speculated to feature 120Hz refresh rates. As a result, the image on these screens will be more fluid than on earlier iPhones. We’re also anticipating an always-on display on each handset.
The camera on the iPhone 13 series is expected to be tweaked, and the two Pro models may have an updated ultra-wide camera. The iPhone 13 Pro could possibly have a better telephoto camera, and other reports say that LiDAR will be available on all four versions, giving you better depth awareness. Improvements to the video recording software are also promised, including a new Portrait mode.
Each of these handsets will most certainly be powered by the A15 chipset, although we don’t know how powerful it will be. Apple is also said to be releasing a 1TB iPhone for the first time in 2021, allowing for the largest iPhone sizes ever.
If the greatest iPhone 13 battery leak is genuine, 2021 phones will have a greater battery. These are believed to be significantly larger, with the iPhone 13 having a 3,095mAh battery vs the iPhone 12’s 2,805mAh. What does that imply? Expect the iPhone 13 to survive longer than prior iPhones.
More 2021 iPhone pricing leaks and rumours will be added as they become available, but for now, check out the prices for the iPhone 12 series, which we expect to be comparable on the iPhone 13. Prices are likely to climb modestly this year. This is especially true outside of the United States, where there are reports that much of the world will obtain the mmWave 5G technology that the iPhone 12s currently have, driving up the price. However, we don’t anticipate a significant shift. It is also said that the design and even the size is otherwise more or less the same as the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
