�� What is the release date of the iPhone 13 ?

The iPhone 13 have arrived in stores Friday September 24, 2021. Unfortunately, some of the deliveries are late, and it’s not about to improve. Because of the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in Southeast Asia, several Apple suppliers have closed their factories. To overcome the lack, the firm puts pressure on its other partners, hoping to reduce deadlines. To overcome the shortage, Apple would also have Requisition of components dedicated to the iPad.

Unfortunately, this does not seem to be enough. Apple would have Revived his production ambitions downwards. In this complicated context, the firm expects stock breaks for December. Stock breaks would last until February 2022.

Nevertheless, Things seem to improve. Apple has also managed to sell 40 million iPhone 13 during the holidays, a record for the brand. In parallel, delivery times for the most requested models continue to be revised downwards.

�� What is the price of the iPhone 13 ?

IPhone 13 price

Apple has not changed the price grid much, since smartphones are displayed at the same prices as iPhone 12:

  • iPhone 13 mini: from 809 euros
  • iPhone 13: from 909 euros
  • iPhone 13 Pro: from 1159 euros
  • iPhone 13 pro max: From 1259 euros

However, Apple introduced a new version with 1 TB of storage on its pro range, which has flown the price of the most expensive variant. Indeed, it is necessary to count 1,839 euros to afford version 1TO of 13 pro max.

Note that thanks to the arrival of the Self Service Repair in Europe, owners of iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and iPhone SE of 3rd generation have the possibility of ordering tools and components to repair their devices themselves. The dedicated site of the Cupertino firm offers dozens of repair manuals to guide DIY enthusiasts.

��What design ?

Apple reduced the size of the notch by 22% to the iPhone 13. The notch, even less imposing, is therefore always part. Apple needs room to house its TrueDepth sensors, essential for facial recognition technology Face ID (which would work this time with mask), even after having managed to miniaturize them somewhat. Apple had to group the infrared camera and the points projector in a single module. Despite this little notch, the iPhone 13 still does not display the percentage of battery.

On the other hand, the photo block is also more prominent. To protect it, Apple affixes a layer of sapphire crystal on the objectives to make them more resistant. On the standard iPhone 13, Apple now has diagonal sensors, as can be seen in the image below. This is also the case on the mini version.

iPhone 13

The aesthetics of devices resembles the design of iPhone 12 with a metal frame and flat slices. It is nevertheless a little thicker especially because of the photo modules. They have a thickness of 7.65 millimeters, against 7.4 mm for the iPhone 12.

Apple iPhone 13 Pro test

They are also heavier. The 13 pro max weighs 238 grams, against 228 grams for the 12 pro max. For its part, the iPhone 13 weighs 203 g, against 189 g for its predecessor. The standard iPhone 13 weighs 173 g, against 164 g for the iPhone 12. Finally, the 13 mini displays 140 on the balance, up compared to the 12 mini (135 g).

The terminal is available in five colors: pink, blue, midnight, stellar light and (product) red. For iPhone 13 pro, Apple has developed 4 colors: alpine blue, silver, gold and graphite.

iPhone 13 Pro

�� What is the screen size of the iPhone 13 ?

Apple takes up the same screen diagonals as those of iPhone 12:

  • iPhone 13 mini: 5.4 inches
  • iPhone 13 and 13 pro: 6.1 inches
  • iPhone 13 pro max: 6.7 inches

On the other hand, there is new on the frequency of refreshment. Apple had abandoned the idea of ​​offering 120 Hz slabs on the iPhone 12, fearing to ruin the battery life, which can already be undermined by 5G. But this time, it’s the right one: the iPhone 13 pro and 13 pro max enjoy a 120 Hz screen, with promotion.

iPhone 13

Standard and mini models are not affected and remain at 60 Hz. However, the Super Retina XDR screen of the iPhone 13 is 28 % brighter than the previous generation and can reach a brightness peak of 1200 nits in HDR.

The 120 Hz Promotion screen adapts the rate of refreshing the slab according to user needs (games, reading, etc.). “Refreshment rates are linked to what’s going on on the screen. If your game falls at 30 i/s, promotion does the same. If you watch a video filmed at 24 i/s, it diffuses at 24 I/S ”, explains Apple on its site.

iPhone 13 screen

Note that you can now have your screen repaired by any professional, approved or not. To prevent users from going through other repairers, Apple initially installed a chip necessarily being twinned during the screen change, under penalty of deactivating definitively in front of ID. As would be expected, the measure did not particularly please users, who put pressure for the Cupertino firm rear machine. It will be done with iOS 15.2, which incorporates the desired fix.

⚡️ What performances ?

The Bionic A15 SOC is manufactured according to a 5nm engraving process+. According to Apple, its A15 chip uses 6 cores, 2 high performance cores and 4 low -consumption cores. Apple announces that its chip is 50 % more efficient than its competitors, and the benchmarks confirm the promises of the brand.

On the GPU side, this has 4 cores on the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini, and 5 cores on pro models. Apple promises performance respectively 30 % and 50 % higher. The 16 Neural Engine hearts would also be able to perform 15.8.8.8 trillion operations per second. Ultimately, graphic performance is 55% higher than on the iPhone 12 Pro.

The iPhone 13 are 5G compatible thanks to the presence of a Qualcomm Snapdragon X60 modem. This modem is capable of combining simultaneously millimeter (mmwave) and 5G under 6 GHz to offer both high speed and good user coverage. Millimeter 5G is however reserved for the United States.

Apple A15

Apple smartphones benefit from the new WiFi 6th standard, the main interest of which is to add a third frequency band to this technology, the 6 GHz joining the 2.4 and 5 GHz to unclutter these. This standard promises a more stable connection, faster flow (up to 11 GB/s) and reduced latency. Again, not all countries are at the same level. In the United States, WiFi 6th is useful because the 6 GHz is available.

�� How much RAM and internal storage ?

The iPhone 13 mini and 13 are offered with 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB of internal memory. The iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max are entitled to 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB. The amount of RAM is similar to that of the iPhone 12.

�� What autonomy and what recharge ?

Apple promises significant improvements in the autonomy, including in particular 1:30 additional on LIPHT 13 Mini compared to the previous generation, and an additional 2:30 am on the iPhone 13 thanks to a 25% larger battery. On Pro models, Apple also promises a 1 hour and a half gain compared to the iPhone 12 Pro, and 2:30 for the iPhone 13 Pro Max. The iPhone 13 are mainly distinguished by autonomy in video streaming. The tests confirm the excellent autonomy of smartphones.

As for the iPhone 12, the 2021 model is deprived of a charger in the box. Only, the thing could change due to a complaint filed by a coalition made up of many Chinese students. They demand that Apple again provide a mains charger in the packaging. According to them, the new Apple procedure pushes users to go to magsafe magnetic recharge.

Magsafe

�� What camera for iPhone 13 ?

In terms of sensors, Apple puts on a new 12 Mp sensor with a focal length of 26 mm for its iPhone 13 and 13 Mini, capable of capturing 47 % additional light. At his side, there is a new ultra-wide-angle of 12 Mp with a field of vision of 120 degrees, and with a focal length of 13 mm. Unsurprisingly, the Lidar scanner is reserved for the most expensive versions of the iPhone 13, in this case the pro models.

iPhone 13 Wide

The optical stabilization of the Sensor Shift image, which only benefited from the iPhone 12 Pro Max, also appears on the lower models of the range. As a reminder, this is a system based on the ultra-wide-angle sensor, which acts as a gimbal and capable of moving to follow the action at best without tremors.

iPhone 13 Camera

The ultra-wide-angle sensor is also entitled to a complete overhaul, but its opening remains at f/2.4. Last novelty for this specific objective, he receives an autofocus functionality, which has been absent so far. These additions pushed Apple to revise the size of the photo block upwards.

But suddenly, how the iPhone 13 pro and 13 pro Max stand out in pictures if the other two versions (13 and mini) catch them on all points ? These two references are entitled to XXL photo sensors, with an opening of f/1.5 more interesting for light management. They show better capacities in photos during bad light conditions.

The iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max offer a new high-angle sensor which offers huge individual pixels of 1.9 microns, perfect for night photos. This year, all cameras are compatible with the “Night Mode”, which allows better performance in low light. Apple promises higher 2.2x performance compared to the iPhone 12 Pro, and 1.5x higher compared to the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

iPhone 13 Pro

The models in the Pro range also benefit from a new ultra-angle sensor with an opening of F/1.8, which promises to capture 92 % additional light compared to that of the previous generation. It also brings autofocus, a first on iPhone for this sensor. The latter also allows you to capture Photos in macro mode at a distance of only 2 centimeters from the subject. Besides, some doctors use it to treat the eyes of their patients.

Smartphones also use a new 77 mm telephoto lens allowing users to get closer to their subjects while recording videos and making portraits with even more classic framing, offering a 3X optical zoom for a total range of 6x optical zoom on the camera system.

Finally, the iPhone remain undisputed champions of the video, their real strong point compared to high -end Android mobiles. Apple announces that it is for example possible to change the bokeh after a video has been captured, a first on a smartphone. To facilitate the recording of videos, Apple launched the intelligent kinematic mode which passes between the front focus and the background according to what is happening within the framework of the image. He “Anticipates the way an important new subject will enter the frame and takes stock of it at the right time”,

In addition, smartphones offer for the first time the portrait mode on videos, hitherto reserved for photos. This functionality is accompanied by the presence of a new format, Prores, which allows you to record films in very high definition. This format is added by the iOS 15 update.1 on pro editions. On the other hand, this format will be reserved for iPhone 13 Pro with a minimum of 256 GB of internal storage. To activate this format, simply follow the manipulation below:

  • Go to the adjustment app
  • Go to the camera section
  • Click on Formats
  • Check Apple Prores

�� What innovations for iOS 15 ?

iOS 15 notifications

The iOS 15 update signs the arrival of a function called “shareplay” on facetime, a soberly called “focus” option which allows you to cut certain notifications and a new weather application. It is installed on all iPhone 13s at the exit of the factory. However, she suffers from a few minor bugs. Rather serious safety flaws have also been identified.

Unfortunately, Apple has not only improved its smartphone compared to the model of the previous year, since the manufacturer has also abandoned a functionality which is however present for several generations.

Indeed, the iPhone 13 is no longer compatible with noise reduction during calls, which made it possible to reduce ambient noise to be heard by its interlocutor. It could be an Apple strategy aimed at selling more AirPods, since the latest models are equipped with a noise reduction for calls.

�� What connectivity ?

The iPhone 13 is obviously 5G (Sub-6 GHz) and retro-compatible 2G, 3G and 4G. It is also compatible with these standards: Gigabit LTE with Mimo 4 × 4 and Laa, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-fi 6 (802.11AX) with MIMO 2 × 2.

And if you want to keep up to date with the latest rumors concerning the iPhone 14, we have compiled them in the following folder:

For posterity, we have kept rumors and announcements that preceded the official release of new iPhone 13.

iPhone 13: the most credible rumors

  • Release in September – credibility index: 99%
  • Four models – Credibility index: 90%
  • A15 chip – Credibility index: 85%
  • Same design – Credibility index: 80%
  • 120 Hz screen – Credibility index: 80%
  • Same price – Credibility index: 70%

When ? The iPhone 13 should be available on September 14

The new Apple iPhone will certainly make its first appearance on September 14 at the next online event of the technology giant.

We already doubt that the next Apple event would be entirely virtual. Mark Gurman of Bloomberg said in July that the keynote will only take place online due to the decision of the technology giant to delay its return to face-to-face work following the increase in COVVI-19 cases.

Originally, Apple said that all employees would be required to go to the office three days a week from September. According to M. Gurman, if the company had been held on the September calendar, an event in person for the iPhone 13 would have been “Plausible”.

It will be the second consecutive year that Apple unveils its new online iPhone. In 2020, the pandemic also forced the company to push the beginnings of the iPhone 12. It was the first Apple event in September in eight years without iPhone.

This year, Apple will return to its usual agenda. An April report suggested that the manufacture of new iPhone chips was ahead of the calendar and Kuo previously provided that the Apple supply chain continued its activities as before.

Let us summarize the information we have:

  • Apple likes to organize its events on Tuesday or Wednesday and the next keynote will take place on Tuesday.
  • The iPhone usually releases a week and a half after its announcement.
  • In general, the new models are launched on a Friday, around the third week of September.

The iPhone 13 will be launched on Tuesday September 14, so we can expect its release to be scheduled for the third week of September, perhaps September 24. We will know more when Apple will officially present its new range of phones next week.

Which name ? Apple sticks to “iPhone 13” for its next flagship

For the moment, we opt for “iPhone 13” but we are not immune to a surprise. Apple could very well succumb to its own Triskaïdekaphobia and choose another nomenclature for its range.

The iPhone 12S is a name that deserves to be put on the table for the next generation of Apple smartphones. Just as the 2014 iPhone 6 gave way to the 2015 iPhone 6S and iPhone X of 2018, the iPhone XS in 2018, the iPhone 2021 could very well position itself as a simple update of The iPhone 12.

Apple can also be inspired by Samsung and give its next phone the name of the year of its design: iPhone 2021 sounds good. Or iPhone XXI ? Or, if you dare to dream, Apple could take a completely different direction and give a fun name like the Motorola Citrus or the LG chocolate of yesteryear.

What price ? The same as the iPhone 12 … or even less

Apple’s iPhone 12 range includes four phones with three different storage capacities. At the time of launch, the basic model of the iPhone 12 cost € 909, an increase of 100 euros compared to the 2019 iPhone 11, largely thanks to the addition of 5G.

Apple could further increase prices for its iPhone 13 range. According to a August report of Digitimate, The American giant plans to increase the costs of the iPhone 13 to compensate for the increase in the price of the production of the fleas of its TSMC supplier. The Apple supplier would consider increasing the cost by 20 % for “Advanced and mature process technologies” By January 2022. It is not clear, according to the report, how much the price of the iPhone could increase exactly.

What design ? The iPhone 13 will probably have the same look

A number of renderings have already toured Twitter to illustrate rumors around the design of the iPhone 13. According to Macrumors, The iPhone 13 photo module could be thicker.

A new rendering made at the end of June by Sonny Dickson on Twitter showed a slight variation in the camera module of the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini, with its two objectives located diagonally compared to the other, rather than a above the other.

Twitter was boiling at the beginning of May when an account called Peng Phones published the image of an alleged Rose iPhone 13, although it turned out to be the creation of an artist on Instagram specialized in the 3D modeling. Then, in June, the YouTube EveryTygapplePro account presented in preview the rendering of a black matt iPhone 13.

Earlier, we spotted a 3D printed model on the Japanese blog Macotakara and some conceptual renderings of the YouTube Everythingappropro channel.

We do not expect big changes in the design of the iPhone in 2021 since we attended the return of the flat edges of the iPhone 5 on the generation of 2020. Apple should not modify the phone size either compared to iPhone 12.

IPhone 13 size according to rumors:

  • iPhone 13 mini: 5.4 inch
  • iPhone 13: 6.1 inches
  • iPhone 13 Pro: 6.1 inches
  • iPhone 13 pro max: 6.7 inches

For several generations, we have also mentioned a screen without borders or notches, as well as the death of the Lightning port on the iPhone of the future.

The iPhone 13 could reduce the size of the notch

Apple introduced the notch display in 2017 with the launch of the iPhone X. Those who crossed their fingers for an iPhone 12 without notch or at least with a smaller notch redirect their hopes to the iPhone 13.

Our colleagues from Macrumors got their hands on an image of the protective window which seems to confirm the reduced size of the notch.

3D renderings shared by MYSMARTPRICE Also go in this direction. The general appearance of the device is relatively close to the iPhone 12. We note, however, that the objectives are positioned diagonally with the flash at the top right.

According to Digitimate, The manufacturer would have the project to reduce the size of the VCsel chip which is used to identify the user. This should allow him to do the same with the notch. Apple could also change space certain components such as the speaker or the front camera.

A patent filed by Apple and shared by our colleagues fromAppleinsider shows the progress of the work of the company on this subject. To keep Face ID while reducing the place of the notch, the manufacturer would use micro-optical elements that could be used at reception or detection to read any object or face through the screen.

Apple will he also kill the port of Lightning ?

When I apple removed the mini-jack port, the apocalypse clock began to do ticking for the loading port of the iPhone according to analysts in the sector. Although many of us always have the hope of seeing a USB-C port, the introduction of Magsafe accessories in 2020 practically sealed the agreement on a future without future for the iPhone for the iPhone for the iPhone for the iPhone. Jon Prosser, who frequently discloses information, shares this prediction and affirms on his YouTube channel: “The final objective is obviously dead. »»

But don’t be too excited (nervous ?): Kuo predicts that only one iPhone 2021 will be completely without port, probably the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

3D renderings published by our colleagues from the site Letsgodigital present an iPhone with a notch (more discreet) but without Lightning port. Here it keeps the rectilinear borders of the current generation.

An American patent application spotted by Apple Insider suggests that society is studying “Capacitious detection entry devices”. Apparently, it would be“Invisible backlit retro openings” which will appear to the touch and will disappear when they are not requested. We can expect an iPhone without physical commands.

Cameras: new technologies for the iPhone 13

The iPhone 12, and in particular the Pro and Pro Max models, integrates several improvements that have been well received. We are thinking in particular of the Lidar (also available on the pro) and the Proraw mode.

Prores and video in portrait mode

The iPhone 13 could have at least three new major features in terms of camera and video. According to a recent report by Mark Gurman from Bloomberg, The latest Apple iPhone could offer a video portrait mode, a better quality video recording option called Prores, and a new filter system to improve the appearance and color of the photos.

Portrait mode was initially launched with the iPhone 7 Plus in 2016, only to take photos. But, if Gurman’s speculation is true, you could soon be able to record videos with a bokeh effect behind your main subject. Regarding Prore functionality, Gurman thinks that it could be similar to the way Proraw for photos is exclusive to high -end models of iPhone 12. Prores could thus be available only for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

The same big angle as the iPhone 12 ?

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini and iPhone 13 Pro will recycle the 7P Grand-Angle module with an opening at F/1.6 of iPhone 12. Only the iPhone 13 Pro Max would benefit from a large angle open to f/1.5. It would be necessary to turn to the ultra large angle to raise a real update. The four expected iPhone 13 would incorporate a module with an opening at F/1.8 against f/2.4 for that of iPhone 12. All models would also benefit from a Lidar so far reserved for pro and pro max models.

A zoom that sees further

One of the weak points in the 2020 range is at its zoom level. The iPhone 12 Pro Max is only equipped with a 2.5x optical zoom – as a comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra offers a 10x optical zoom and a 100x digital zoom. According to ETNEWS (as reported by Techradar), the iPhone 13 could potentially include a periscopic telephoto lens. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, it was not until the generation of 2022 to take advantage of it.

A more successful night mode

In early February, new rumors reported an improved night mode for better photos in low light. Analysts rely on an ultra-angle with a large opening of F/1.8 instead of 2.4.

You have the lidar, you have the lidar, everyone has the lidar !

The four models in the iPhone 13 range could include LIDAR technology, according to a report Digitimate. The Lidar was introduced on the iPhone in 2020, but only on the pro and pro max models, which would therefore be only a real upgrade for the basic model and the mini. The fact remains that the Lidar for everyone would be quite practical: the system projects laser beams that will reflect on objects and return to the source, which makes it possible to measure the distance by timing the flight time of the light impulse.

Battery: greater capacity does not mean that the iPhone 13 will have better autonomy

In early June, a rumor from the Chinese social network Weibo suggested that the iPhone 13 range will have larger batteries. The characteristics, shared on Twitter by the Leaker @l0vetodream, report a 2,406mah battery for the iPhone 13 Mini, going to 3,095mAh for the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 Pro, and 4,325mAh for the ‘iPhone 13 Pro Max.

These battery sizes are all upgrades compared to the respective capacities of the iPhone 12 (although Apple does not disclose official specifications of the battery). However, the increase in the size of the battery of the iPhone 13 may not result in greater autonomy. It all depends on other telephone upgrades and how its software optimizes battery life.

According to the Leaker Max Weinbach, the iPhone 13 could be compatible with reversed charging by taking on a more imposing wireless load coil. The journalist of Bloomberg Mark Gurman thinks that this technology will be reserved for iPad Pro at first.

What technical sheet ? All the other rumors we heard on the iPhone 13

There are many things that we can predict with confidence for the 2021 range of the iPhone based in particular on the characteristics of the models of last year. For example, they should all be compatible with 5G and take an A15 chip. There will probably be no charger in the box, no lighter socket, nor a USB-C port. Apple presented in preview iOS 15 and (iPados 15) at the opening conference of the annual WWDC event on June 7. It is with this version that the iPhone 13 will enter the market.

A 120 Hz refresh rate for iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max

We thought the frequency of refreshment in the iPhone 12 was not going to be blocked at 60 Hz, but rumors of 120 Hz did not succeed, probably due to the already increased consumption of the smartphone because of its 5G connectivity.

2021 could be the year of the 120 Hz display. Many high -end competitors already offer this refresh rate (OnePlus 8T, Galaxy S20), so there is a good chance that apple is in this direction for its next pro range. Blogger Max Weinbach also goes in this direction and also specifies that the iPhone 13 will have a LTPO slab. TFI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo evokes a 120 Hz refreshment rate and an LTPO slab for iPhone 13 Pro. He adds that the iPhone 13 will have more powerful batteries and include a Qualcomm Snapdragon X60 MoDem Chip.

Korean media The Elec also indicates that two of the iPhone 13 models will use LTPO technology on their screens. This technology would make the phone more energy efficient.

Relayed by the same media, the cabinet Ubi Research says that Samsung will take care of the production of OLED LTPO screens for the professional and pro max versions. At the beginning of May, we learn that Samsung Electro-Mechanics will provide rigid flexible print circuits to Apple. These components make it possible to connect the OLED panel with the motherboard.

An Always-on screen

Like the Apple Watch and Android smartphones, the iPhone 13 could offer an Always-on screen. If the rumors are true, your next iPhone would always display the time and the load of the battery, as well as the incoming notifications, without you having to unlock it.

Return of the Touch ID button

Bloomberg reported in 2019 that the Touch ID button could return to the iPhone 12. It did not happen, but the report of Bloomberg left a margin of error, saying that technology could be offered on the iPhone 2021.

The Leaker @l0vetream also mentioned a Touch ID under the screen last fall, which was corroborated (and translated) by Jon Prosser.

Mark Gurman of Bloomberg said in August that this system “Will not be selected” For the iPhone 13. Apple envisages instead an integration of Face ID under the screen.

Apple’s iPad Air 2020 announced last September incorporates a Touch ID button on the side of the device. This addition is well thought out since it solves the problem of facial identification without impacting the size/screen ratio. A button under the screen would also solve the problem, but it remains to be seen if the technology will be ready in time for the iPhone 13.

Satellite connectivity

Ming-Chi Kuo evokes satellite connectivity for the iPhone 13 which will allow its holder to make calls and send SMS in zones without cell coverage. Still according to Kuo, Apple would collaborate with Globalstar, provider of satellite communication services in low -land orbit. Connectivity of satellite communications could however be only for emergency purposes, for example to send SMS to emergency services or call emergency contacts.

1 TB storage for iPhone 13 pro and pro max

In a recent report to investors, spotted by 9TO5MAC, Kuo says that the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max will be available with 1 TB of storage, while the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini will be available in 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB. If this rumor is verified, this would mean that the 64 GB storage option, previously offered for the iPhone 12, will not be available for the iPhone 13. It would also be the first time that Apple has offered 1 TB of storage on a phone.

As the keynote approaches, we will keep this article up to date with all the leaks, rumors and other speculations concerning the next Apple smartphone.
