Like most tech companies, Apple is always looking for places to upgrade and improve. Rumors about the new iPhone 13 have surfaced on the internet, with a reported arrival date in fall 2021. Fans of the company have been curious about the price of the iPhone 13, amongst other details.
Here's everything we know about how much the new iPhone 13 is and when it can be expected to release.
So, how much is the new iPhone 13? Sources are conflicting.
According to Apple Insider, the majority of the iPhone 13 is expected to stay the same as the 12 in terms of physical layout. However, the iPhone 13 is rumored to come in new colors. At present, the iPhone 12 comes in five colors: white, black, blue, green, and red. Typically, a new iPhone release comes with an upgrade, and rumor has it the new colors introduced will be bronze, matte black, and "sunset gold."
Another report by Tom's Guide suggests that Apple's Face ID will be modified to create a face-unlocking capability that includes masks, which has been one of the biggest flaws of the iPhone 12 since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. With the Delta variant causing a rise in cases once again, it would be good news if Apple crafted technology that could recognize you with your mask on (as long as it's accurate).
The biggest question on consumer minds is regarding the price of the iPhone 13, which Apple Insider notes could also be called the iPhone 12S instead, given Apple's tendency to switch up the names of their products. Currently, there is some debate about the price of the new model, but Tech Radar suggests that the new phone could start its pricing at a whopping $699.
As is typical with Apple products, the details are largely kept under wraps until the company sees fit to release them. It sounds like aside from a potential camera upgrade and new colors, not much will be changing between the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 13. Consumers will have to wait and find out for themselves!
When will the iPhone 13 be available for purchase?
The price of the new iPhone isn't the only aspect up for debate. The release date for the new iPhone has been heavily rumored to take place in early fall 2021, reportedly at the end of September. However, the exact date has caused much contention. Some sources say that the phone will be released on Sept. 14, 2021, while others believe the phone will become available on Sept. 27, 2021.
While this is a difference of two weeks, it's enough to keep consumers on their toes. Hopefully soon, Apple will formally announce when their latest product is going to drop.
