iPhone 13 release date, leaks, price and news
Apple’s new iPhone 13 series is expected soon, and the biggest leaks suggest we’ll be seeing the new iPhone at some stage in September 2021. You don’t have to wait until then to hear about the new iPhone 13 though.
iPhone 13 leaks have been springing up from a variety of sources for the last few months, and we’ve now got a clear picture of some specs of the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 mini.
Below you’ll find the top-line facts about each of the new iPhone models, and after that you’ll find more on each aspect of the phones.
Release date: September 2021 is likely when we’ll hear about the iPhone 13, but an exact launch or release date hasn’t yet become clear. Our best guess is you’ll hear about the new iPhone on September 7 or 14.
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.
Design: 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 it’s largely set to be similar to last year’s handsets.
Colors: 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.
Display: 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.
Camera: 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.
Specs: The A15 chipset will likely power each of these handsets, but we’ve yet to know how powerful that will be. 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.
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 than your previous iPhones.
