Apple’s iPhone 13 lineup will probably be largely just like the iPhone 12. However the iPhone 13 storage choices might be in for a shake up…
Apple launches and releases its new iPhones across the identical time yearly – in the direction of the top of the 12 months, often Q3. And in 2021, it will be the turn of the iPhone 13.
Just like the iPhone 12, there’ll virtually actually be three fashions, presumably 4 – however that every one is determined by whether or not Apple retains the Mini possibility round. Gross sales haven’t been good, so this mannequin’s survival is now in query.
Because it stands, we’re taking a look at at the very least three fashions: the iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Professional, and the iPhone 13 Professional Max. If Apple does replace the iPhone 12 Mini and launches the iPhone 13 Mini, that’ll make 4 – however, once more, all bets are presently off with this particular mannequin.
iPhone 13 Storage Choices
We all know fairly a bit already about Apple’s plans for the iPhone 13. Nothing is concrete, in fact, however rumors and leaks are usually fairly correct as of late. We all know the digicam will probably be up to date closely, we all know TouchID is returning, and we all know Apple will use its new A15 CPU within the telephones.
However what about storage?
In an fascinating flip of occasions, it now appears to be like as if Apple is pushing forward with its first ever 1TB iPhone. If true, this implies you’ll have the next storage choices for Apple’s iPhone 13 vary:
Nonetheless, the 1TB iPhone possibility will virtually actually be reserved for Apple’s flagship mannequin, the iPhone 13 Professional Max. It is going to additionally break the bank. Wherever from $1300 to $1600, most definitely. And this implies the 1TB iPhone 13 Professional Max will probably be a critically area of interest providing, most definitely aimed squarely at photographers and videographers.
Greatest Promoting iPhone Storage Dimension?
As with most issues in life, the most well-liked possibility is often the most affordable, and Apple’s iPhone isn’t any exception. Gross sales of the iPhone XR, iPhone 11, and iPhone 12 are all pushed strongly by the most affordable (and lowest storage) possibility of the vary.
Actual numbers are tough to pin down, however after chatting with a number of networks about the most well-liked storage dimension for iPhones, the overall consensus appears to be the bottom possibility – both 64GB on older fashions or 128GB on newer telephones just like the iPhone 12 and iPhone 11.
In keeping with my sources, 64GB iPhones account the majority of Apple’s iPhone gross sales in 2019 and 2020, particularly the iPhone 11 and the iPhone XR.
Is there demand for a 1TB iPhone? Maybe. However it’s going to take ALL of Apple’s advertising genius to promote this idea. Given the above stats, the one potential avenue I can see for a 1TB cellphone is video-content creators.
And even then, I feel most of them would have the ability to get by with 512GB, certainly? Both method, it’s most likely going to be a troublesome promote. However given how well Apple’s iPhone 12 has been selling, I feel the corporate can afford to take the danger.
