As it has done in the past, Apple is expected to unveil its newest iPhones this fall. With summer now on our doorstep, rumors are ramping up, with an increasing number of analysts chiming in on what the Cupertino company will bundle into the iPhone 13. According to Wedbush analyst, Daniel Ives, as reported by MacRumors, the next-generation iPhone 13 will see some key improvements that’ll bring the iPhone closer than ever to the iPad Pro.
Ives made headlines earlier this year with the claim that Apple is looking to boost the storage on its iPhones. According to Ives, the iPhone 13 may top the iPhone 12 Pro with a whopping 1TB storage option that doubles what Apple currently offers in its iPhone lineup.
Though its iPad Pro includes 1TB of storage, the company’s flagship iPhone 12 Pro is available only with 512GB as the highest available capacity. In his latest research note, Ives continues to push the idea that Apple will double the iPhone’s available storage.
Storage isn’t the only area of the iPhone 13 to see an expansion. Concerning the iPhone 13, Ives continues to claim that Apple will bring its LiDAR sensor to all of its iPhone 13 models, including its entry-level versions.
Currently, the LiDAR sensor is only available in the iPhone 12 Pro models and not the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini. Starting with the iPhone 13, Ives believes Apple will expand the reach of LiDAR in order to bolster its rumored augmented reality efforts and make them more mainstream.
The iPhone 13 wasn’t the only topic Ives addressed in his research note. The Wedbush analyst also touched upon Apple’s powerhouse MacBook Pro notebooks. Apple last year introduced new MacBook Air and Pro models with the company’s M1 silicon. This year, some analysts like Ives believe Apple will announce new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models at WWDC 2021.
Ives claims that the new MacBooks will be powered by Apple’s M1 chipset and may include a radical redesign with the return of the HDMI port, the SD card slot, and MagSafe charging.
