The latest buzz about the iPhone 13 lineup also came from Kuo. In a recent investor report, spotted by 9to5Mac, Kuo says the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will be available in 1TB storage. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini will reportedly be available in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB options.
Apple’s next flagship phone, said to be called the iPhone 13, will almost surely debut on Sept. 14 at the tech giant’s next 2021 event. We expect to see four iPhone 13 models: a standard iPhone 13 as well as Mini, Pro and Pro Max versions. According to a filing with the Federal Communications Commission for a revised MagSafe charger, spotted by 9to5Mac and MacRumors, Apple references the four new iPhone models alongside the four “legacy” iPhone 12 models: the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The four-model lineup for the iPhone 13 was predicted previously by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Although the iPhone 13 is rumored to mirror the iPhone 12 lineup, Apple’s 2021 iPhones may feature a few new design, camera and feature upgrades. The prices may also be a bit higher than for 2020’s iPhone 12 models.
Besides size, last year’s iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini are fairly similar. They share the same camera specs and storage options, and they both lack the lidar scanner Apple included in the Pro models. The iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max also share similar features, with a few small differences in their camera sensors and lenses. For the iPhone 13, however, we won’t know exactly how each model compares until they’re launched.
Here are all the rumors we’ve heard about the iPhone 13 collection so far, and how we expect each model in Apple’s new lineup to differ from each other. Just note that none of the iPhone 13 specs have been confirmed by Apple yet. We’ll keep this story updated as we hear more.Price: iPhone 13 line could match the cost of its predecessor
Like most details about the iPhone 13, the exact pricing of Apple’s next lineup of phones has yet to be revealed. But we speculate it could mirror the price structure of the iPhone 12 lineup.
Of Apple’s 2020 line, the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini are the more affordable phones, with US starting prices of $799 and $699, respectively. The iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max are considered Apple’s higher-end models, and cost $999 and $1,099.
We expect the iPhone 13 Mini to be about $100 less than the baseline iPhone 13, if last year’s price structure is any indication. Similarly, an extra Benjamin will probably be the difference between an iPhone 13 Pro and a Pro Max, with prices also varying across storage size and carrier.
If the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max are priced comparably to the iPhone 12 line, the prices would be similar to other high-end smartphone models like the Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra, which cost $1,000 and $1,200, respectively.
But Apple could also raise the prices for its new lineup. According to an August report from DigiTimes, the tech giant is considering upping prices for the iPhone 13 models to compensate for the increased costs of chip production from its supplier TSMC. Apple’s supplier is looking to increase the cost by as much as 20% for “advanced and mature process technologies” by January 2022, the report says. What’s unclear is whether this would impact the price of the entire lineup, or if costs will be passed on unevenly across the different phones.
