Specifications and features of the new iPhone series (expected)
According to rumors, the new iPhone series will have smaller notches than previous models. And larger camera sensors to absorb more light. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are also said to have improved ultra-wide cameras in the new lineup.
Storage Capacities/ Colour/ Wieght
The regular iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini are said to have storage capacities of 64GB and 128GB. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are expected to have storage capacities of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. The rumor mill also suggests that a 1TB storage model for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max could be released this year.
In terms of color options, the iPhone 13 and the mini version are expected to be available in Black. The two versions will also come in Blue, Pink, Purple, (PRODUCT) RED, and White. The Pro and the Pro Max version, on the other hand, are expected to be available in Black, Bronze, Gold, and Silver.
The overall weight and thickness of the new iPhone lineup is expected to increase. The iPhone 13 Pro Max is said to have an 18–20 percent larger battery than last year’s model. Although, the Pro models have a refresh rate of 120Hz, it is reported to throttle at 60Hz when in Low Power Mode.
According to rumors, the iPhone 13 will include a portrait cinematic video feature that uses an electronic image stabilization (EIS) system known as “Warp.” Users will be able to blur the background while recording video with this feature. The camera system’s optical image stabilization (OIS) is said to switch to a less aggressive and more “smooth” operating mode. The night mode feature is expected to be improved so that it can recognize when there are stars in the scene and adjust itself internally. This is accomplished with the help of a new algorithm that analyses structures, sharpens, and adjusts shadows in nighttime shots.
Satellite Feature of iPhone 13
The satellite feature is said to be one of the main attractions. It will reportedly allow users to send short emergency texts and SOS distress signals in remote areas in the event of a crisis, such as a plane crash or a sinking ship. This may only work in areas with no cellular coverage and in a limited number of markets.
The feature is not expected to be available on the iPhone 13 right away, but will more likely to be next year. While hardware support will be built into the new iPhone line, the feature will not be available for a few months. Users will be unable to use the iPhone 13 as a satellite phone. And will be unable to make calls anywhere in the world without cellular coverage.
An early report suggested that the new Apple’s iPhone would be more expensive to compensate for the increase in chip production costs. Although a recent report refutes these claims and states that the range will not see a price increase. Face ID technology is also said to have been working on. According to reports, it will work with masks and foggy eyeglasses. Apple is also said to be integrating an Apple Watch-like Always-On display and adding Wi-Fi 6E support.
Specifications and features of the Apple Watch Series 7 (expected)
Apple is also expected to unveil the Apple Watch Series 7 at its California Streaming event. The new Apple Watch model is expected to follow the design language of the iPhone and iPad. It has a flat display that may be slightly larger in size than last year’s Apple Watch Series 6. The battery life of the Apple Watch Series 7 is expected to be improved over that of the original Apple Watch. Gurman recently stated that the wearable “this year won’t be about health upgrades. But the focus will be a new design with flatter edges, that new display, and a new chip.”
Specifications and features of the AirPods 3 (expected)
In terms of the third-generation AirPods, the earphones may also be unveiled at the Apple event. The tech behemoth may call them AirPods 3 and they may have an AirPods Pro-like design. The next-generation AirPods may come standard with a wireless charging case. The charging case is expected to have a 20% larger battery than the second generation. The batteries are likely to be the same size as those found in AirPods Pro. In terms of sound quality, it may provide noticeably better bass and low end.
