Apple iPhone 13 series is not getting delayed this time: Report
Unlike last year, Apple is making sure its iPhones launch on time later this year. And the good news here is that they are indeed coming on time, as per an analysis by Wedbush. The company states that the next-gen iPhones, tipped as iPhone 13 or iPhone 12S, will be coming in late September like they usually do every year.
Last year, the supply chain got severely affected due to Covid-19 and lockdown imposed by almost every country around the world. This also led to a delayed arrival of the iPhone 12 models, specifically the iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
However, as per Wedbush (via 9to5Mac), the launch is likely to take place in the third week of September. But there can be ‘product model tweaks' that can lead to a slight change in the timeline and push the launch to early October. This might not be for all the iPhone 13 models but at least for some of them.
iPhone 13 has been rumoured since past few months and the features are already speculated by tipsters and analysts. The latest piece of rumour indicates that iPhone 13 will get a smaller notch, bigger battery and 120Hz refresh rate screen.
As per a GizChina report, the upcoming iPhone 13 or the iPhone 12S will come with thinner bezels compared to older iPhone models, which will be coupled with a smaller notch. This setup would increase the effective screen area for iPhone users. In addition to this, the upcoming iPhone model is also expected to come with Direct time-of-flight (ToF) technology that will replace the existing Face ID components. This in turn will help in reducing the space required for the notch.
The upcoming iPhone model will also come with a 120Hz ProMotion screen by Samsung -- a feature that several reports in the past have hinted towards. The report says that Samsung's LTPO screen will support a refresh rate varying between 1Hz to 120Hz, which in turn will help in conserving the battery better.
