Apple announced the iPhone 13 series and possibly at least three other products including the Watch Series 7
The rumored iPhone 13 series will keep much of the same design as the older generation, but may come with a smaller notch. The screen size is the same as last year, including the 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini, 6.1-inch iPhone 13, 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max . They also come with the new Apple A15 Bionic chip which seems to be slightly faster than the A14 Bionic powering the iPhone 12 series. Gurman also claims that the new iPhone series will make headlines with its video-focused features and an AI-powered filter system for images.
The Pro models may retain the triple camera setup, while the standard models have dual cameras. According to previous reports, the new iPhone’s camera will be slightly larger than the current one. The Pro versions are highly likely to come with a 120 Hz LTPO display. While Gurman thinks the new models will come with satellite functionality, it doesn’t appear to work when it’s released. Software support for the feature could arrive next year, when it will allow users to send emergency messages and SOS alarms without the need for cellular coverage.
According to a previous report, iPhone 13 pre-orders will start on September 17 and they will hit shelves on September 24. Pricing will likely be the same as last year, meaning the iPhone 13 mini starts at $699.Regarding the storage configuration, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that the iPhone 13 mini and 13 will have 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB versions. Meanwhile, the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max will have 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB versions. For Apple Watch Series 7, the product is expected to have a new design with a flat screen and flat edges. Apple is expected to release new bands and watch faces for the device as they will be available in 41mm and 45mm sizes, with thinner bezels.
The watch will be powered by the new S7 chip. Apple may also reveal the new AirPods 3 at the event. The headphones are said to come with an AirPods Pro-inspired design and a refurbished charging case. Apple is expected to stop making AirPods 2. And finally, the arrival of the iPad mini 6, which is said to bring design touches from the iPad Air. More specifically, it appears to have a larger display, thinner bezels, and a side-mounted Touch ID sensor. It comes with the A14 Bionic chip like on the iPhone 12 series.
