When does Iphone 13 come out?
The iPhone 13 release date is likely to be in September 2021, and we expect it to hit stores on the fourth Friday of the month so you'll likely be able to buy it on September 24. The next Apple event is set for September 14 - the company has confirmed that - so we're expecting to hear about the phone then. TechRadariPhone 13 release date, price, specs, news and leaks
Apple's iPhone 12 was one of its best sellers.
Last year, Apple tapped 5G wireless as one of the key new things about its iPhone 12, promising faster downloads and more reliability. With this year's next iPhone,for its next big breakthrough.
"The challenge is getting the same level of attention and creating a cycle of upgrades," said Carolina Milanesi, an analyst at Creative Strategies. But, she said, Apple has a knack for coming up with something for fans to get excited about.
An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment ahead of the company's event.
This year's launch will mark another test for Apple, which already won't go away.around the world. And the phone's popularity continues to grow. Last year's iPhone 12 was such a hit that it pushed Apple's sales and profits to new records, even though the device launched in the middle of one of the worst health and economic crises in a century. The iPhone 13's job will be to help Apple keep the momentum going, even with a pandemic that stubbornly
Historically, the hype around new iPhones seems muted when the outward design remains the same. Apple somewhat acknowledges this, adding an "S" to the name of these inner-changed iPhones, starting with 2009's iPhone 3GS, which the company originally said stood for "speed." And though some critics might say the S stands for "snooze," Apple has used these off-year iPhones to introduce new marquee features.

When it launched a decade ago, the iPhone 4S introduced. The iPhone 5S, in 2013, . The iPhone XS offered a " ," CNET reviewer Scott Stein wrote on its 2018 debut. (But it was the iPhone XR, released the same year, that stole the show, with a in exchange for a lower-quality screen and camera.)
Whether Apple calls its next iPhone the iPhone 12S or the iPhone 13, as the internet seems to have already christened it, won't matter. What'll matter is whether Apple can pack enough into the device to hit the mark after one of its biggest iPhone launches ever, last year.
The good news for the company is that it already appears to have a head start. A survey by SellCell, a phone reseller, found that 44% of current iPhone owners plan to upgrade to one of thewhen they launch. That alone could amount to tens of millions of iPhones.
"Apple does an amazing job making hit products seemingly year after year, like a pop band," said Bob O'Donnell, an analyst at Technalysis research. And just like any band, he added, some releases may not hit the general population the same way a smash album does. "They're still OK, and still important to fans. That's probably what we'll see with the iPhone 13."
The Apple Watch has become more than merely an accessory for the iPhone.
Part of Apple's success has been thanks to companion products, which starts at $279, and the company's , which start at $159. That ecosystem of interconnecting products and services has helped create a behemoth of industry.
So it's worth noting that though the iPhone may not have many physical changes this year, the Apple Watch reportedly will.
Leaks suggest the, as it may be called, will come in 41mm and 45mm sizes, up slightly from the 40mm and 44mm offered today. That slight increase is expected to account for a new, flat-edge design, marking a significant shift from the curved edges Apple has . Reports from Bloomberg and from Apple leakers suggest the screen's bezels may also shrink, allowing for more viewable screen area.
Though the Apple Watch doesn't sell anywhere near as well as the iPhone -- Apple doesn't even publish individual revenue for the device -- it reportedly sells better than the entire output of the Swiss watch industry. And it's become a key halo device for iPhones, with Apple saying 75% of purchasers are buying their first Apple Watch.
"Traditional Swiss watch makers, like Swatch and Tissot, are losing the smartwatch wars," Neil Mawston, an analyst at Strategy Analytics, wrote in a report last year. "Apple is delivering a better product through deeper retail channels and appealing to younger consumers who increasingly want digital wristwear."
Last year was all about 5G for Apple.
Apple observers saw a sure bet with the iPhone 12 when it launched last year. The tech giant was finally adopting superfast 5G wireless, playing off a culmination of. Now, a year later, Apple CEO Tim Cook said he believes last year's record iPhone sales were just the start of 5G wireless upgrades.
"We're only in the early innings of 5G," Cook said during a conference call with analysts this summer. One data point he noted was that people around the world, and the US, still don't have easy access to 5G signals. That gives people less reason to upgrade now and potentially more reason to buy when the signals arrive.
While the carriers boast 5G coverage across the nation, the speeds are often disappointing relative to marketing hype. Consumers haven't rushed to embrace the technology, and many peopleavailable around their homes. But the carriers have been steadily upgrading their networks, improving on those early lackluster experiences. Both the iPhone 12 and its newer sibling stand to benefit from those coming changes.
Satellite connectivity could also offer an extra incentive to help the iPhone stand out from the pack. It remains to be seen whether this is a regular perk or more of an emergency-use feature, as rumors suggest.
What's certain is that Apple will be sure to tout some feature of the iPhone 13 as a breakthrough that makes the device the next must-have product. But with a similar design, and an S-type year, that could be a tough sell, even when it comes to the most loyal Apple fan.

This potential new feature could be a major productivity booster
This is a staple on many Android phones and with Apple going all in on OLED displays, now's the best time to introduce iOS users to the feature. But if you've never seen or used always-on display, you might be left wondering why people are excited about the iPhone 13 supposedly getting it.
Always-on display (AOD) is a minimal part of the screen that remains on even when you lock your phone. While we don't know what Apple might end up doing with it, we can look at how Android handles it for an idea. The biggest part of AOD is displaying the time, but the iOS version could also show calendar events, notifications, weather, or music information.
You might be wondering if AOD hurts battery life, but the effect on Android is negligible. Since OLED panels can light up (or turn off) individual pixels, AOD only uses the parts of the screen it needs instead of turning the whole thing on. It's essentially a low-power mode. In some anecdotal cases, AOD can actually save on battery life since you don't need to turn on the display to check the time or your notifications.
Having always-on display is more than just a convenience. I have found it to be crucial to staying productive. My phone sits beside my keyboard on my desk, easily reachable and within my line of sight. When I'm using an Android phone, I can quickly see the time (which is often larger than the tiny clock on my MacBook Pro's screen). I also see new notifications that come in, weather updates, my battery percentage, and important calendar reminders. Seeing these things at glance with a quick look helps keep me from picking up my phone and derailing me from progressing on my current task.
I sorely miss AOD when I use the iPhone 12 Pro. It's a small feature, but it's one Apple could easily implement. AOD can be one of those little things that makes a big difference and I really want to see it on an iPhone. If the iPhone 13 does get an always-on display option, it won't be a highlight of the new phone. It won't make as big of a splash as the new processor or camera upgrades, but you might find it a lot more valuable (or least used more often) than you think.
