How many Iphone 13 are there?

The iPhone 13 release date is September 24 for all four models. The iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are all now available to pre-order in the U.S. and U.K. Tom's GuideiPhone 13 release date, price and every model reviewed

Apple could be finally looking to make the iPad Pro devices landscape default.  A new leak by Twitter user Dylan (@dylandkt) suggests that the brand could be giving the next iPad Pro a horizontally placed camera, along the longer edge of the tablet.

The leaker doesn’t mention whether the change will be implemented in the immediate next iPad Pro or a later release, but says the change is “in the works.” Check out the tweet below.

Future iPad Pro’s will feature a horizontal camera placement and a horizontally placed Apple logo on the back. Apple will make landscape mode the default for iPad Pro usage. I have not confirmed whether the next generation model will have this feature but it is in the works.

The brand is also expected to turn the logo on the back by 90 degrees too, to match the landscape orientation. However, the Magic Keyboard, perhaps the most used accessory along with the iPad Pro already features a landscape logo on the back.

Apple has been positioning the iPad Pro as a laptop replacement for the last few years, something even further cemented by the inclusion of the brand’s M1 chip in its latest iteration. With all that firepower, the iPad Pro is no more a handheld media device, but a more traditional performance-oriented machine.

So, it would only make sense for the company to design the iPad Pro for landscape usage over portrait use. The new layout would also mean a more natural design fit with accessories like the Magic Keyboard case.

iPadOS has also added mouse support now, with the Magic Keyboard getting its own trackpad. Making a landscape orientation practically feel like how the iPad Pro is supposed to be used. This is also supported by most of  the iPad Pro’s media images which show the tablet in a landscape orientation.

iPhone 13 preorders — here’s the wait time for each model

Tom's Guide 24 September, 2021 - 11:53am

iPhone 13 delivery dates are already getting delayed

The newest iPhone takes full advantage of Apple’s A15 Bionic chipset, has a bigger battery to keep it powered up for longer, and a better camera array with a compelling cinematic video mode. It’s arguably one of the biggest upgrades we’ve seen between iPhone generations, and this has naturally led to significant demand for the device. 

The iPhone 13 launched on September 24, but it seems unlikely that the majority of customers will be spending this weekend getting acclimated with the phone’s brighter display and speedy processor. The wait time for each model of iPhone 13 has been shooting up all week, and it's only getting longer with each passing day. 

The iPhone 13 certainly isn’t the only in-demand tech product. The PS5 and Xbox Series X are still supply constrained even 10 months on from launch, and similarly finding a retailer with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 graphic card in stock has become a herculean task. 

Before jumping into the wait time for each model in the iPhone 13 lineup, it’s important to stress that your mileage may vary. Wait time is determined by a variety of factors including your location and your chosen configuration, so we can’t guarantee that your wait time won’t be longer than the ones listed below. 

The standard iPhone 13 128GB looks to be quite readily available. Delivery estimates have it arriving between October 13 and 18, and in the New York area, it’ll even be available for pickup on launch day from a physical Apple Store. The 256GB/512GB models are also available with an estimated delivery date of October 13 to October 18 and local pickup available in the New York area.

It was a surprise to some when Apple announced the iPhone 13 mini, due to the reportedly poor sales of the iPhone 12 mini, but interest may have picked up in the smaller model. While the iPhone 13 mini can be picked up at a local store on launch day in our area, and it’s available for delivery from October 12 at the earliest. 

Across all configurations of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, the color of the device you opt for appears to be having a noticeable impact on wait time. While the blue, midnight, starlight, and red options are facing longer delays, the pink model is available a little earlier with delivery starting from October 11.

The iPhone 13 Pro model is where the delivery delays are truly being felt. The standard iPhone 13 Pro 128GB isn’t available for delivery until October 25 at the earliest, and that could stretch to as late as November 1. Although, there does appear to be the option for local pickup at an Apple Store near us. The situation is similar for the iPhone 13 Pro Max model, which is also facing delivery delays that could run into November.

As noted above, if you want to get yourself an iPhone 13 in the coming weeks it’s probably best to get your order in now before the delivery dates start to slip even further into the winter. If you’re looking for a bargain, we’ve got a roundup of the best iPhone 13 deals to help you save big on the latest Apple smartphone.
