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 13 launches tomorrow, but you can see it right now in this stunning video

Yahoo Entertainment 14 September, 2021 - 01:50am

A set of rendered images appeared this week of a so-called iPhone 14, with the suggestion that they were sourced the same way as a number of highly accurate leaks in the past. Images show the iPhone 14 Pro with industrial design features that remind one of the iPhone 4, including a flat front and back, flat sides, and circular volume buttons. This new device is expected (in this set of images) to include a switch, at least three cameras on its back, and a punch-hole front-facing display panel.

The iPhone 14 Pro appeared in the images and video released this week by Renders by Ian and Jon Prosser for FPT. This new device is expected to be released in approximately one year from now. We’re just about a week away from the next Apple Event – that’ll take place on September 14, 2021 – but there we’re expecting the iPhone 13. The iPhone 13 family hasn’t even been formally revealed by Apple at an Apple event yet, and the iPhone 14 Pro is claimed as leak-ready – imagine!

The device in the leak appears with a back-facing set of three camera lenses, the potential for a ToF (Time of Flight) or LiDAR system for 3D scanning and augmented reality purposes. The back facing camera array also has an additional sensor OR mic hole, and a large LED flash.

The iPhone 14 Pro leak this week shows this camera array flat against the back of the smartphone. This would be the first time a hero device from Apple would have such a flat array of cameras for quite a few years. The iPhone in this set of renders appears as if it’d be nearly as flat on the back as it is on the front.

The front would also bring a first to the iPhone lineup with a punch-hole front-facing camera. This would be strange, considering the notch full of sensors that generally appear on most iPhone devices. Either Apple has plans in place to put said sensors below the display, or to remove said sensors altogether. OR they’ll all fit in that extremely tiny bezel around the edges.

This new iPhone 14 leak suggests there’ll be a SIM card tray on the left side and a Lightning OR USB-C port at the bottom. The phone will also have bottom-firing speakers, much like most iPhone devices released over the past decade.

We’re still expecting a slightly less surprise-filled smartphone set to appear in the September 14, 2021 event held by Apple. It’ll be there that we’ll likely see the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. The notch will still almost certainly be in place, and the most welcome change won’t be a change at all.

Apple iPhone risk from powerful motorbike vibrations

BBC News 13 September, 2021 - 07:02am

The technology giant published a warning iPhones should not be attached to powerful bikes, in a support document spotted by MacRumors.

Engine vibrations can harm phones' optical-image stabilisation or closed-loop autofocus systems, it says.

Owners of scooters and mopeds should also use "vibration-dampening mounts".

On social media, several users have said their phones have been damaged after being attached to a motorcycle.

And Apple says several models of iPhone are susceptible to the damage.

The affected systems are designed to improve picture quality by counteracting movement, vibrations, and the effects of gravity.

But high-power or high-volume motorcycle engines generate "intense high-amplitude vibrations", the support page says, which can be transmitted through the frame and handlebars.

"Direct exposure to high-amplitude vibrations within certain frequency ranges may degrade the performance of these systems and lead to reduced image quality for photos and videos," it says.

The solution is to refrain from attaching iPhones to the bike in the first place - something commonly done for navigation.

BBC research finds the number of days passing 50C has doubled in the past 40 years.
