This is what the iPhone 13 should look like

TechRadar 17 July, 2021 - 03:00am

What we expect the iPhone 13 to look like

With all of those leaks and rumors cluttering up the internet, we have created renders of the most likely design we expect Apple to employ for its upcoming iPhone 13 flagship phone.

In the image above (and the galleries below) you'll find our renders of the biggest and best iPhone 13 rumors we've seen so far. There's no guarantee this will be accurate come September, or whenever Apple reveals the new phone, but this is currently our best guess at the handset's design.

Consistently leaks have suggested we won't see major design changes for the iPhone 13 series, but there will likely be a few tweaks that mean the look of the upcoming phone will differ.

Camera upgrades for the iPhone 13 are currently expected to be minimal, with the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max likely to be the handsets that get major changes to their rear cameras.

The design of the camera on the iPhone 13 is widely rumored to be changing though, and the biggest likely change will be the lenses moving to a diagonal design rather than how they look on the iPhone 12.

It's also expected that the iPhone 13 camera block will jut out from the rear of the phone more too. One leak says it'll be 2.51mm thick, which is compared to a thickness of 1.5mm on the iPhone 12.

According to a wide variety of leaks, Apple will be including a smaller notch on the iPhone 13 series. In fact, it's thought to be 30% smaller in terms of width when compared to the iPhone 12.

This has been cited by numerous sources, and some have suggested that Apple will be moving the earpiece from the notch to the bezel of the handset to provide extra space on the screen.

In our renders, we've included the smaller notch. At first glance, this may not seem as slim as you were expecting, so we've also included it in comparison to the iPhone 12 from 2020.

Other leaks have suggested that Apple will be changing up its colors in 2021, and that doesn't surprise us. The company often does this when it reveals a new iPhone.

What has surprised us is the colors the company has possibly opted for. According to some leaks, Apple is considering a pink shade and an orange as the new additions for 2021.

Apple isn't adverse to these colors generally, but we've yet to see the company include these on a flagship smartphone. The leaks haven't given us a clear idea of the exact shades, so we've based the above renders on two existing Apple products.

The pink shade is a similar tone to the headband on the company's AirPods Max, which debuted earlier in 2021. The orange meanwhile takes the color of the company's recent iMac 2021.

Neither of these colors are guaranteed to make it to market - in fact, one rumor even suggested the orange variant didn't make it past prototyping stage - but it's fun to see what Apple may decide to bring to market later in 2021.

You can see the rest of our iPhone 13 renders above. As noted, these are just our own artist's impressions of what the next-gen handset may bring, but these are based on what we believe to be the most accurate leaks and rumors so far.

The iPhone 13 series is expected to debut in September 2021, so it’s likely we’ll be hearing from Apple directly about the next iPhone in around two months time. Until then, we'll continue to give you the latest leaks and rumors about Apple's next-gen iPhone.

Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 11 were top sellers in Q2 2021, iPhone 12 mini got the cold shoulder - GSMArena.com news

GSMArena.com 17 July, 2021 - 03:00am

We recently reported on a research by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners which analyzed for how long Apple users were holding on to their older iPhones.

Another interesting angle of the research however was which were the most popular new iPhone models in this period.

The research looked at iPhones were selling during Apple’s third fiscal quarter (April through June).

Among the people surveyed, the iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 11 models were the best-selling, both of which each made up 23% of the share of iPhones purchased by participants of the survey. All four iPhone 12 models made up 63% of iPhones.

During the same period last year the iPhone 11 series made up 65% of sales. Indeed, the iPhone 11 matched the iPhone 12 Pro Max, the two best-selling models for the quarter at 23% market share each.

On the other end of the spectrum, the least popular models for the quarter were the iPhone 12 mini, and the iPhone XR. Each of which made up just 5% of the participants.

Apple no longer reports an average selling price, instead it focuses on a “US weighted retail average price” (US-WARP).

CIRP estimates that as more people picked the iPhone 12 Pro Max as their next phone, the US-WARP rose to $869 in the April-June quarter, “considerably higher” than the same period last year, according to the analysts.

Another positive trend is that Apple recorded a significant increase in sales through its own retail operations (both online and brick and mortar stores), while Best Buy and carriers sold fewer units. Most iPhones (66% as of June 2021) are still sold through carriers, though.

True. My Samsung S6 Edge works well till now. And almost all app can be installed easily.

Why are you changing the topic? You gave no reply to those facts he mentioned. 200 budget Android > 1000$ iPhone in multiple areas. If that doesn't make iPhone a low quality product, then I don't know what does

Android phones can last for years without updates. Better than IOS updates which slow down your phone with every updates and make the whole phone a buggy mess

Apple Increases Production for New iPhone 13, Expects All-Time Popularity

The global tech company has reportedly put in an order with its suppliers to increase its iPhone 13 production by 20 percent. The ramped-up order is expected to see the new generational iPhone ship 90 million units by the end of 2021. Normally, Apple orders approximately 75 million units of its new iPhone for its launch period between September and October to the end of the year.

Apple Stock: Next Stop, $175?

Yahoo Finance 17 July, 2021 - 03:00am

With shares hitting an all-time high this week and the gap in performance narrowing over the past month, that conversation can now be put to rest.

The uptick has coincided with reports Apple has boosted the production rate of its iPhones, instructing manufacturers to build 90 million iPhones this year, a 20% increase on the 75 million units it produced last year.

The renewed optimism in all things Apple is not surprising to J.P. Morgan’s Samik Chatterjee. The analyst recently told investors Apple is well set up to outperform in 2H21. In fact, the growing confidence means Chatterjee has added Apple to the firm’s Analyst Focus List as “a Growth idea.”

“The recent momentum led by better market share, drives us to also estimate higher sustainable volumes in future quarters, leading us to see a path to Apple outperforming investor expectations over a longer time horizon rather than just the upcoming earnings print,” the 5-star analyst said, confirming Apple is also a Top Pick.

To reflect the increase in build rates, Chatterjee has “modestly” increased iPhone volume expectations, but of more importance to the analyst is the “path to upside” for the shares in the medium-term.

This is because of the potential for better iPhone 12 sales but also due to what Chatterjee considers are low expectations from the iPhone 13’s fall launch, which could create “another leg to the upside opportunity.”

It’s a potent mix which is given additional allure with the launch of the iPhone SE3 next year and means Apple can “not only pleasantly surprise with a more robust iPhone 13 cycle, but also has the opportunity to drive material upside to consensus expectations for FY22.”

To this end, Chatterjee rates Apple shares an Overweight (i.e. Buy), while slightly lifting the price target from $170 to $175. The revised figure implying shares will add 19.5% from current levels. (To watch Chatterjee’s track record, click here)

So, that’s J.P. Morgan’s view, what does the rest of the Street have in mind for Apple? Based on 20 Buys, 5 Holds and 2 Sells, the stock currently has a Moderate Buy consensus rating. The forecast is for shares to appreciate by 8% over the coming months, given the average price target clocks in at $158.62. (See Apple stock analysis on TipRanks)

First iPhone 13 date leak is a sign the world is slowly getting back to normal

T3 17 July, 2021 - 03:00am

There have been so many iPhone 13 leaks that it's hard to imagine we'll be super-surprised by whatever Apple unveils later this year, but one thing we weren't sure about at all is when the new phone might launch.

Most years, Apple has unveiled its new iPhones in September, with the launch coming shortly after. But in 2020, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro (and their other-size versions) didn't appear until August, with the delay likely coming from construction and delivery problems, what with the pandemic and all.

Well most countries have a much better hold on things now, and it looks like Apple is planning to return to the old schedule, if this rumour from noted Twitter leaker AppleLeaksPro holds up. It says that the iPhone 13 (or 12S, or whatever it gets called) event will be held on the 14th of September.

Apple events are traditionally held on Tuesday, which is why the 14th looks like the likely date despite the original information being just 'week 37'. And pre-orders opening on the Friday for delivery a week later is also exactly in line with Apple's usual MO.

Based on previous experience, we'll probably see the Apple Watch Series 7 on the same day, and iOS 15 will be launched that week.

CIRP: US buyers bought more expensive iPhones, traded in their old ones earlier in Q2 2021 - GSMArena.com news

GSMArena.com 17 July, 2021 - 03:00am

CIRP surveyed 500 US customers who bought an iPhone, iPad, Mac or an Apple Watch in the April-June quarter of this year. And what the researchers found is that Apple customers are spending more money than in previous quarters.

While the general trend in the industry (and for iPhones too, until now) is for the upgrade cycle to grow, US buyers were trading in newer iPhones than before. CIRP notes that the number older models (3 years and older) was smaller and that they were being replaced by more expensive models, for the first time in many quarters.

During the 12 month period ending in June this year 37% of buyers held on to their previous phones for 2 years or less, 30% for 3 years or longer. For comparison, the stats for the 12 month period ending in March show that 35% of owners upgraded after 2 years or less and 34% waited 3 years or more.

iPhone 13 could be completely buttonless. What Apple might do instead

CNET 17 July, 2021 - 03:00am

Rumor has it that a future iPhone (iPhone 13?) might lack physical buttons. A recent US patent application spotted by Apple Insider suggests the company is investigating "capacitive sensing input devices". Apparently these input devices, aka buttons, will be "invisible backlit holes" that appear when touched and disappear when not in use. 

This approach sounds pretty slick and will no doubt add a bit of elegance if applied to any device. The big question is whether a feature like this will find its way into the next iteration of the iPhone, or if we have to wait until 2022 or beyond in order to see Apple integrate it. It's not an entirely wild concept and fits with other possible changes Apple may make to future iPhones.

Read more: iPhone 13 release date rumors and why it might actually be called the iPhone 12S

For example there's talk of the iPhone 13 regaining a fingerprint scanner. Instead of a physical reader though, the new scanner will live under the surface of the phone's screen. It's a tactic that certainly matches a buttonless, minimalist design aesthetic should Apple choose to go this route.

Apple already killed the headphone jack in iPhone 7 back in 2016, and rumors suggest the Lightning port might be getting the ax as well. If the iPhone 13 nixes its Lightning port and goes all-in on wireless charging, it would become Apple's first-ever completely portless phone. Why not add buttonless to the mix?

Of course this patent application could be associated with an entirely different product than the iPhone. After all, much of what we think we know about Apple's anticipated handset is pure conjecture. Even its product name is uncertain. However, one thing is clear: All these mysteries will be dispelled at Apple's next iPhone launch event, likely to be held in September
