The iPhone 13 will likely be launched in mid-September, based on the company’s history, as Apple launched its new flagship devices at the same time each year. However, there have been a few instances where the company has launched devices at a different time – including the iPhone X and XR launched in October and November (respectively), the SE series launched in the spring, and of course not forgetting the iPhone 12 series, which was postponed for a month due to the Corona.
Analyst Daniel Ives, of Woodbush Securities, has released a forecast that the announcement event is expected to take place in the third week of September. He did not specify an exact date, but the company usually holds its events on Tuesdays, so the event will likely take place on September 14th. According to him, the pre-order will open (as every year) on the Friday of the same week of the announcement – in this case it is September 17, and the official launch in stores will be on the 24th of the month. The information is probably based on sources in the supply chain, so it may be reliable.
The devices are not expected to undergo a significant external change, although it has been reported that the company is testing a number of new colors and finishes for the devices. One significant change that will probably be in the new devices is the reduction of the gap, which has been at the top of the devices since the iPhone X released in 2017. In addition, Ives further claimed that the series is expected to include a device with 1 terabyte of storage, along with smaller volumes, and that all models will incorporate a LiDAR sensor for depth collection in the rear photography array. Another report that comes up and may hurt many users is the expected change in the rear photography system – which will stand out more than in the iPhone 12.
