When will Iphone 13 be released?

Apple is famously secretive when it comes to tech announcements but going by the latest rumours, Apple's iPhone 13 launch date will be September 2021. The next-gen iPhone is expected to bring a host of upgrades including a super-fast 5G modem, ultra-wide 48MP camera and Apple's first-ever 120Hz display.

We’ve seen a number of iPhone 13 cases, and one of those case makers has today shared photos of the molds on which they are based.

The process of creating a case design before the launch of a new iPhone tends to have three steps, and can be a risky business …

First, someone in the iPhone supply-chain leaks CAD models or schematics, which reveal things like the exterior dimensions and positioning of the camera bump.

Second, a company will produce molds based on these measurements. Other companies create dummy models, which aim to replicate the finish of the final products – with some of these shown in more detail in videos.

Finally, case makers use these molds to design and test their cases.

If the original leak was genuine, and nothing changes between then and the final version of the phone, all is good – and case makers can make a lot of money by having products available for sale on day one. If the claimed leaks were fake, however, manufacturing large volumes of useless products can be an expensive mistake.

Twitter user DuanRui trawls Chinese social media for leaks, and found that one case maker, Benks, has shared photos of the molds they used to create their iPhone 13 cases.

Benks, a well-known Chinese cell phone accessory brand, sent out photos of the iPhone 13 series phone models. They have already produced phone case products based on this model.

Since multiple case makers will buy the same molds, this can create a consistent view of the design of an upcoming model, without any certainty that it is correct. However, in the case of the iPhone 13 there have been a fair number of reports all pointing to the same things, so these molds stand a decent chance of proving accurate.

The Apple logo is likely partially obscured to prevent trademark issues.

There has been speculation about the name of this year’s lineup, but one recent report suggested that the models will indeed be called the iPhone 13.

Epic Wins Appeal to Continue Antitrust Case Against Apple in Australia

MacRumors 09 July, 2021 - 06:02pm

Epic's case in Australia follows much of the same argument in the U.S., claiming that Apple is a monopoly and that the ‌App Store‌ and in-app purchasing system are unfair.

Apple argued that the case was already being tried in California courts, and won a three-month stay on the Australian action that would become permanent unless Epic filed a lawsuit in California alleging violations of Australian Consumer Law.

"This is a positive step forward for Australian consumers and developers, who are entitled to fair access and competitive pricing across mobile app stores," the company said in a statement. "We look forward to continuing our fight for increased competition in app distribution and payment processing in Australia and around the world."

"The initial decision in April from Australia's Federal Court correctly ruled that Epic should be held to the agreement it made to resolve disputes in California," said Apple in a statement. "We respectfully disagree with the ruling made today and plan to appeal."

Apple in March told an Australian court that Epic's legal challenge against the ‌App Store‌ is "self-serving," and that all the software company aims to do is "redefine the terms of access" that it's always been subject to on Apple's platforms.

The three-week ‌Epic Games‌ v. Apple trial wrapped up in the States in late May, but it could be several weeks before we learn of the verdict, and it's quite likely that any decision will be appealed, so this is a lawsuit that could carry on for months to come both in the U.S. and abroad.
