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. What Hi-Fi?iPhone 13: release date, price, leaks and all of the news

In a new exclusive, the Economic Daily News claims that reports Apple will launch an ‘iPhone 12S’ series are wrong and we will indeed be getting iPhone 13 models. This would be a shock, given recent reports “confirming” an S year

“The supply chain has reported that this year's new phone will be named ‌iPhone 13‌,” EDN reveals. The site also reiterates the names and screen sizes for the full lineup: 5.4-inch ‘iPhone 13 Mini’, 6.1-inch ‘iPhone 13’ and ‘iPhone 13 Pro’ models and a 6.7-inch ‘iPhone 13 Pro Max’. Moreover, EDN reports that Apple’s chief suppliers “will start shipping in the third quarter” which ties in with reports that the iPhone 13 range will launch much earlier this year. 

The news is interesting because a) Apple fans will hope that the generational name change signifies that several of the range’s more ambitious upgrades will still make it, and b) that Apple has - somehow - overcome the global chip shortage to get the new range to market a lot sooner than expected

Needless to say, reports about the name change are conflicting so it would be wise to remain cautious. That said, here are the biggest leaks about the new iPhone range if you want to daydream: supersized primary cameras with upgraded image stabilization, a smaller notch, big battery size increases, 120Hz ProMotion displays (Pro models only), up to 1TB of storage and global 5G mmWave compatibility

Will Apple deliver all these upgrades? I’d be very surprised. That said, if your preferred upgrades don’t make the cut in 2021, then the first iPhone 14 leaks suggest your patience will be well rewarded in 2022

Is Apple about to surprise us by releasing a device it canceled years ago?

Yahoo Entertainment 08 July, 2021 - 11:25am

Apple first announced AirPower when it unveiled the iPhone X at a special media event in 2017. Apple at the time said it would ship later in the year. However, several technical roadblocks kept pushing the release date back. Ultimately, Apple ended up cancelling the product altogether in 2019. It was a rare miss for Apple.

According to reports, the charging mat was prone to overheating when charging multiple devices simultaneously. Notably, the key feature of AirPower was its ability to charge multiple devices at once. Other reports pointed to interference issues involving the coils which impacted charging efficiency.

“After much effort, we’ve concluded AirPower will not achieve our high standards and we have canceled the project,” Apple senior VP of Hardware Engineering Dan Riccio said two years ago. “We apologize to those customers who were looking forward to this launch. We continue to believe that the future is wireless and are committed to pushing the wireless experience forward.”

Interestingly, there are rumblings that AirPower might actually see the light of day. Nothing is certain, but Bloomberg recently said that Apple is working on a new wireless charging product similar in nature to AirPower.

The Cupertino company is still exploring a future wireless charger that works similarly to its failed AirPower, a charging mat designed to simultaneously power up an iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods, the people said. It is also internally investigating alternative wireless charging methods that can work over greater distances than an inductive connection.

Additionally, Apple has several patent filings about this type of technology. Some were made in 2019 and 2020 after the product was canceled. It is, however, possible that the technology described in the patents will be incorporated into something like MagSafe. Still, Bloomberg’s record with respect to Apple rumors is quite strong.

That notwithstanding, Bloomberg notes that it may be several years before Apple’s ongoing work with wireless charging yields a new charging mat similar in function to AirPower. In short, it remains unclear if AirPower will ever see the light of day. Still, there’s reason to believe that Apple engineers haven’t given up on the idea just yet. In the meantime, there are already compelling charging mats on the market from the likes of companies like Mophie. It’s possible that by the time AirPower is ready, it will be far less appealing to the masses.

Despite public opposition in Japan over fears of new coronavirus surges, the Tokyo Olympic Games that were postponed last year will get under way on July 23, with spectators now barred from all events. The delay and crowd restrictions on the Games, which will end on Aug. 8, have been expensive in various ways. Organisers said last December that the entire cost of holding the Games would be about $15.4 billion, including $2.8 billion for the unprecedented postponement from 2020.
