There have been many rumors about the upcoming iPhone, but one of the biggest questions was which name Apple would finally use.

In a recent survey, most people said they don’t like the name iPhone 13, maybe because of the general superstitions behind the number or straight triskaidekaphobia — a literal fear of the number 13.

This led numerous people to believe that Apple might skip the number this year and just call it the iPhone (2021), as the company does with other products.

Others believed that Apple was going to go back to the old days and introduce the “iPhone 12s.”

However, a new report from UDN says that Apple doesn’t care about superstition or bad luck, and the company will use iPhone 13 for the 2021 iPhone.

According to 9to5Mac, the new iPhone will still be named iPhone 13 and now it’s even entering the stocking stage of the product, so they’re ready for their release this fall. 

Apple’s new iPhone this year has entered the countdown stage of stocking, and the supply chain has reported that this year’s new phone will be named iPhone 13.

Not only that, but this new report says that Apple will introduce the iPhone 13 in September and that the iPhone will ship in the third quarter.

The supply chain reports that this year’s new iPhone will return to the situation announced in September of the previous year. The assembler will start shipping in the third quarter, and the peak of the pull will fall in the fourth quarter.

A September launch seems to be a pretty safe bet – most rumors claim that Apple will launch the new iPhone in September, and that’s what the company has done in previous years, like with the iPhone 11. However, it’s possible that Apple announces the new iPhone 13 in October, as it did with the iPhone 12 lineup in 2020.

We’ll have to wait for Apple’s invitation to see when the iPhone 13 will drop and which rumored features will be accurate.
