The 2021 iPhone season of rumors and leaks has been announced. The first details on the iPhone 13 were revealed by a reputable insider, Mig-Chi Kuo. He gained wide popularity largely thanks to accurate forecasts regarding the products of the Cupertino company. According to the information available to him, the iPhone 13 line will receive a design and dimensions similar to the iPhone 12.
The first details of the iPhone 13 series
Next year, the new lineup will feature four models: iPhone 13, 13 Pro, 13 Pro Max and 13 mini. It is expected that the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will receive a new wide-angle sensor in the main camera with an f/1.8 aperture and autofocus.
Such an innovation should impact the quality of photos compared to its predecessors; which received a sensor with an f/2.4 aperture and lacks an autofocus system. The key supplier of lenses for the iPhone 13 will remain the Taiwanese company Largan Precision; which will account for 70% of all orders for the new wide-angle sensor.
Perhaps the iPhone 13 series models will receive ProMotion displays with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. These are expected to be LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) panels designed by Apple. Most likely, the new devices will receive the latest A15 Bionic chip, created by TSMC using a 5-nanometer process technology. And also, the bigger model of the iPhone 13 series can offer a 1 TB flash drive.
Gizchina News of the week
Due to hot sales, Apple iPhone 12 increased its order by 2 million units
There have been a couple of complaints regarding the new iPhone 12 smartphone. Since its launch, there have been reports of its poor battery performance. However, these down points are not stopping customers from purchasing this phone. According to a new report, due to hot sales, Apple iPhone 12 has increased its order by 2 million units. The company is also optimistic about the shipments of Apple’s product lines next year.
Since this generation of iPhone 12 is based on a combination of multiple models, 5G support, thinning and weight reduction, and replacement of existing models; Cinda Securities believes that Apple’s iPhone 12 sales will exceed expectations. Cinda Securities predicts that Apple’s supply chain orders in the fourth quarter of this year will be between 80 million and 85 million; and sales in 2021 are to reach 230 – 240 million units.
The iPhone 11 shipped 75 million units in the fourth quarter of last year. Since only two of the Apple iPhone 12 series are on sale, and they are available later than last year’s release date, consumer feedback is still unclear. The final sales volume needs further observation.
Well-known YouTuber @CaptainGizmo previously counted the total sales of Apple’s smartphones. The results show that as of April this year, the current best-selling iPhone 6/6 Plus has delivered 222.4 million units, and currently holds the title of iPhone series sales. The iPhone 12 series has a long way to go.
