It is pretty evident for anyone following Apple for some time now that the company launches its new iPhone models in September every year. However, last year was different as the company had to delay the launch due to complications produced by the pandemic.
But, following the past fashion of launching new iPhone models, Apple is expected to bring the new iPhone 13 models somewhere in September this year. This is what the very notable personality, Mark Gurman from Bloomberg has reiterated in his latest report as well.
Gurman claims Apple is in full preparation mode for another jampacked holiday season of device launches. Gurman once again mentions that Apple might unveil new watches, AirPods, iPad mini, and MacBook Pro alongside the new iPhone models at the upcoming event. Gurman also says that while iPhones along with AirPods, new iPads are expected to launch next month, Apple will hold a different event for the new Macs with its in-house SoCs. He believes the new MacBook Pros with M1X SoC will hit the shelves in November this year, the time the current MacBook Pro hits its two-year anniversary
The report mentions although the upcoming iPhone set won’t get quite as big as an upgrade, it remains Apple’s star. A key focus of the new iPhone models is better camera features and faster speed while retaining last year’s design. The report then sums up all the features of the upcoming iPhone models, some of which have already been reported by Gurman before. Some of the features include a faster A15 chip, new screen technology that will enable ProMotion, and always-on screen mode.
The major camera capabilities include a video version of Portrait mode dubbed Cinematic Video, a new AI-driven filter system to apply different styles to your photos, and higher-quality video recording in ProRes for the Pro models.
Gurman reiterates, the new iPhone set will include the same 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch of the regular models and the same 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch variations for the Pro models.
Reportedly, the company is expected one of the biggest iPhone launch cycles ever, projecting the need for over 90 million shipments through calendar 2021 as the world shifts to 5G.
