iPhone 13 release date
Apple’s new iPhone 13 is highly likely to debut on iPhone 13 release date September 14, and you may be able to buy the phone soon after that. The company has confirmed its next launch for that date, and we’ve been hard at work rounding up and cutting through the key new iPhone leaks.
New iPhone rumors have been springing up from a variety of sources for the last few months, and we’ve now got a clear picture of many of the likely specs of the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, and iPhone 13 mini.
We also have a good idea of the likely design of these phones and have seen numerous leaked images. For those of you who are light on time, we’ve cut down the rumors into a handy, bite-sized portion below, while further down you’ll find tons more depth where we explain everything you have to know about the new iPhone range.
iPhone 13 release date: September 14 is likely when we’ll hear about the iPhone 13. Apple is hosting an event on that date, and it’s almost certain to be the day we hear about any new devices.
iPhone 13 price:
Expect a similar price to the iPhone 12 range, with one leak suggesting it’ll be exactly the same. The iPhone 12 mini – the cheapest of 2020’s iPhones – started at $699 / £699 / AU$1,199 while the iPhone 12 Pro Max cost $1,099 / £1,099 / AU$1,849. That said, there is some evidence the price could increase a bit.
iPhone 13 Design Review:
Little is expected to change from the iPhone 12, but it seems the company will be changing the design of the rear camera. It’ll seemingly have a diagonal lens arrangement on the two cheaper phones, but the design seems otherwise largely set to be similar to last year’s handsets, albeit with a slightly smaller notch.
iPhone 13 Colors Review:
Apple may debut some new shades with the iPhone 13 series, and two rumored versions are pink and orange. Alongside those, we expect to see similar shades to last-gen, such as purple, black, and white.
iPhone 13 Display Review
Screen sizes and resolutions are expected to stay the same across the range of iPhone 13 products, but both the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are heavily rumored to debut 120Hz refresh rates.
That means the image on these screens will be smoother than previous iPhones. Plus we’re expecting an always-on display on each handset, too.
iPhone 13 Camera Review:
Apple is expected to be tweaking the camera on the iPhone 13 series, and the two Pro handsets may get an upgraded ultra-wide shooter. The iPhone 13 Pro may also get an upgraded telephoto camera, plus some leaks suggest LiDAR could be present on all four models so you’ll have improved depth perception, though more recent leaks don’t mention this, so don’t count on it. Video recording software improvements are also expected, including a new Portrait mode.
iPhone 13 Specs:
The A15 chipset will likely power each of these handsets, though current reports suggest this won’t bring a huge power boost. It’s also heavily rumored that Apple may bring out a 1TB iPhone for the first time in 2021, so that’ll allow for the largest iPhone sizes ever.
iPhone 13 Battery:
If the biggest iPhone 13 battery leak is correct, you can expect a larger battery inside 2021’s phones. These are expected to be notably larger, with the iPhone 13 expected to offer a 3,095mAh cell compared to the iPhone 12’s 2,805mAh. What will that mean? Expect a longer-lasting iPhone 13 then your previous iPhones.
