iPhone 13: release date, price, specifications. Apple will unveil the iPhone 13 series smartphones in September 2021. The basic 6.1-inch iPhone is traditionally the most interesting – firstly, it is not as expensive as a pro. Secondly, according to rumors, it will receive an unusual camera with a diagonal arrangement of sensors (you cannot confuse it with the previous generation). Finally, it will have the signature (PRODUCT) RED color scheme.
Let’s tell you more about the device. Well, when the gadget is officially presented, we will add the material.
iPhone 13 release date
The release date is roughly known. September 2021. It is likely that Apple will introduce new iPhones in the first half of the month. Insiders hint at the 13th. And that is symbolic. The thirteenth iPhone on the thirteenth of September.
There have been speculations that the iPhone 13 will be more expensive than the iPhone 12 series, and although this is the expectation, according to the information from the research company TrendForce, the iPhone 13 price will be the same as the iPhone 12 models.
Regarding this, when we consider that the iPhone 12 starts at $ 799, we can say that the price of the iPhone 13 will be $ 799. In contrast, the iPhone 12 mini was $ 699 and the iPhone 12 Pro was on the shelves with a price tag of $ 999. From here, the iPhone 13 mini can be sold for $ 699 and the iPhone 13 Pro for $ 999. Again, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is expected to be priced at $ 1099.
The parameters of the iPhone 13 are already approximately known. The gadget will receive a top-end chipset, a cool screen, more memory (both RAM and flash), and a cooler camera. More details below.
IPhone 13 processor
The entire iPhone 13 lineup will be powered by the mighty Apple A15 Bionic. This is a 5nm SoC. What is the advantage? In numbers in tests, as well as in energy efficiency (which is important, considering that new iPhones will receive screens with a refresh rate of 120 Hz). The smartphone will work quickly.
The same size as the iPhone – a 6.1-inch LTPO OLED panel with about 20% less power consumption. Fine. Even wonderful. What’s new? The refresh rate will increase to the current flagship 120Hz. The frequency will not be fixed, but dynamic. The frequency will vary depending on the task. In games, for example, it will be high, while surfing the web it will be lower, and in idle mode it will be near zero.
Yes, the screen will be protected even better. The new generation Ceramic Shiled glass is sure to be even stronger.
Bangs with Face ID
Annoyed with bangs with Face ID? Bad news for you (and we even like it, so nothing bad for us) – the bangs will remain. The good one will become smaller. This is because the speaker was moved higher, closer to the frame. The sensors themselves (apart from the selfie camera) have also become smaller.
The most interesting! This is because the iPhone 13 will use a new camera module with a diagonal arrangement of sensors. Judging by the renders (based on CAD drawings, by the way), the lenses will get bigger. This means that there will be more light. More light means better image quality. Especially when it comes to night photography. The camera will still be double. Zoom? It will probably be double, but there may be more. Will the plain iPhone 13 get LiDAR? We don’t know yet.
The sound will still be of high quality. Perhaps even better than the iPhone 12. Stereo speakers are expected. The 3.5mm jack is not coming back, no hope for that.
Touch ID in iPhone 13
Hurray, according to rumors, the fingerprint scanner will return to the iPhone 13. And in the era of masks, this cannot but rejoice, right? They will probably build it directly into the display (as flagship manufacturers on Android have been doing for a long time).
The sore spot of any iPhone is a small battery. Will they fix this flaw in the iPhone 13? Unlikely. But the battery will turn out to be larger than that of the iPhone 12, this has almost been decided. How do you achieve this, given the identical case dimensions? By reducing the size of other components. Fast charging? Will be. Power? Hardly below 30 watts. Wireless? No more than 15 watts. Don’t forget about the MagSafe magnetic charger.
I think Apple will keep the 64GB version. But it cannot be ruled out that a smartphone with 128 GB of flash memory will become the basic option. If so, then the top version will not be the one with 256 GB, but 512 GB. However, if you are running low on storage, iCloud can help!
- Connectivity: We expect the iPhone 13 to receive Wi-Fi 6E modules (improved speed and energy saving), Bluetooth 5.2 (higher range, more stable connection). Of course, there will be a 5G modem. But we do not need it, in the Russian Federation 5G is still neti. And if the iPhone 15 comes out, that’s good.
- eSIM: saved, but there can be only one physical SIM card.
- Vibration motor: of course, it will remain. It will get smaller, but not worse.
- Dimensions: Same as iPhone 12. Weight will not increase either. And if it grows (because of the bigger battery), then no more than 5-10 g.
It will not be worse. There is simply nothing to clean up. The box with the iPhone 13 will definitely contain the iPhone itself, instructions, stickers, wire. The charger and earbuds will never come back. Will the SIM eject paper clip be removed? We hope not.
iPhone 13 externally (especially in front) will be almost indistinguishable from iPhone 12. The case with sharp corners will remain. Similarities to iPhone 4 too. The main innovation is another camera module. But also the bangs with Face ID are smaller. Well, and, possibly, they will add new colors.
