Judging from the recent frequent reports regarding the iPhone 13, we all know that this series will launch soon. In fact, the potential launch date is already in the public domain, September 14th. This new series will come with the biggest change in the screen design since the 2017 iPhone X. Of course, this series will significantly reduce the notch which many users are looking forward to. It is very common for predecessors of new flagships to significantly drop their price just before the launch of the successor. This seems to be the case with the iPhone 12 (predecessor) and iPhone 13 (successor).
As the launch date of the iPhone 13 draws closer, the iPhone 12 now has a huge price drop. According to reports, the 128GB version of the iPhone 12 now sells for 4799 yuan ($744) on some platforms. This is a massive 2000 yuan ($310) shy of the official price of 6799 yuan ($1,054). As we all know, when the iPhone 13 series arrive, the sales of the iPhone 12 could drop significantly. This is the risk that many sales platforms can not afford to take. Thus, they activate these price cuts to sell off their remaining stock of the iPhone 12.
Although the iPhone 13 will come with a couple of upgrades this year, its starting price will not rise. However, due to the addition of the 1TB storage version, the high version will cost over $2,000. Considering the pricing, many iPhone 12 users are now getting set for an exchange with the upcoming iPhone 13.
In addition to the change in screen design, there are reports that the iPhone 13 will also increase its battery capacity. Under the hood, these smartphones (iPhone 13 series) will use the Bionic A15 SoC. Of course, we expect the overall battery performance to be better.
The reduction of the notch will ensure that the new iPhones have a larger screen-to-body ratio and a better visual effect. However, the size of the screen remains the same as the previous generation. This series will have three screen sizes which are 5.4-inch (mini), 6.1-inch (13 & Pro), and 6.7 inch (Pro Max). The iPhone 13 series comes with more colour options than other previous series. In addition to the black and white colour options, there will also be a sunset gold and rose gold colour option. Nevertheless, these two colours are not entirely new to the iPhones. It is important to note that the iPhone 13 Pro series will not have a 256GB model. Users will have to choose between the 128GB model and the 512GB version.
