Despite warnings from Samsung, analysts say Apple won’t be late this year. The iPhone 13 would be announced in September with immediate marketing.
Analysts are certain: the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro are due to be presented in September 2021 and, ideally, they should also be released in stride. Unlike last year, with the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro, there would be no lag this year. Another important information: there would be no shortage problem with the new iPhones unlike other market players.
No delay this year and no shortage of components?
In 2020, Apple unveiled these iPhone 12 much later than usual. And for the first time, they were released on two different dates: October 23, 2020 for the 12 and 12 Pro, and November 13 for the 12 mini and 12 Pro Max. This year, no delay according to analysts.
Apple would however have reasons to be late this year. The industry is currently experiencing what is known as the “silicon crisis”. Samsung was the first tech giant to voice concerns about chip shortages spreading beyond the automotive industry and graphics cards. Moreover, the first victim will undoubtedly be the Galaxy Note which should not be announced this year.
In any case, if Samsung speaks publicly about future products, it is very likely that the silicon crisis is serious and that it will certainly affect all companies in the sector. It is still too early to imagine the consequences of such a shortage, but we are already seeing the damage in other sectors such as game consoles or graphics cards.
The iPhone 13 would have the same look as the iPhone 12
According to the same analysts, the iPhone 13 would be iterations of the iPhone 12, the same look, with a new 1TB storage option as well as the integration of LiDAR on all models this time around. We would therefore be in a generation with few changes.
