It’s been just a day since Apple officially issued invitations for its upcoming September keynote event, and people are already spilling the beans with what we might see on September 14. After Apple’s announcement, PineLeaks (Max Weinbach’s alternate Twitter account) shared basically everything Apple plans to announce next week.
Fitting to the annoucement of Apple’s September event, we are publishing our report on Apple’s upcoming products, including the iPhone 13, Apple Watch Series 7 and 3rd Generation AirPods. Here’s what we’ve got to share.PineLeaks on Twitter
PineLeaks talked about all the new features that the iPhone 13 lineup and the Apple Watch Series 7 will have – they also revealed basically everything about the new AirPods 3.
According to PineLeaks, the complete iPhone 13 lineup will be heavier and thicker this year, especially compared to last year’s model, which other sources have corroborated in the past. The tweets also claim that you’ll only be able to notice the weight difference on the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The size increase will allow these iPhone 13 models to have larger batteries. According to PineLeaks, the iPhone 13 Pro Max will feature an 18 to 20% larger battery compared to the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The iPhone 13 mini, on the other hand, will reportedly offer an additional hour of battery life.
PineLeaks also states that the iPhone 13 Pro models will feature a display with a 120Hz refresh rate and will dynamically decrease to 60hz when possible, but will stay there if Low Power Mode is enabled.
PineLeaks goes on to talk about the camera improvements the iPhone 13 lineup will have, which is something we’re all expecting due to the rumored larger camera bump on the back of the iPhone 13.
- According to PineLeaks, the new OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) system switches to “a less aggressive and more ‘smooth’ operating mode.”
- Night Mode will now recognize stars, too, and it’ll adjust itself based on them.
- Night Mode’s Color Science has been improved as well, and there’s a new algorithm that analyzes and resharpens structures and shadows.
We Will See AirPods 3 During the September Event?
Another thing PineLeaks “confirmed” is that Apple will reveal the AirPods 3 during next week’s keynote, as multiple other sources have corroborated over the past few weeks.
In addition, PineLeaks claims that the new AirPods 3’s charging case will have a 20% larger battery, and wireless charging will become a standard feature. Moreover, the battery inside the AirPods will be similar in size to the battery in the AirPods Pro.
As for sound quality, things will remain the same for the most part. According to PineLeaks, we’ll see a slight improvement in bass and low ends.
Overall sound should be about the same as you’ve seen on the 2nd Generation, though with noticably better bass and low ends.PineLeaks on Twitter.
What About the Apple Watch?
PineLeaks didn’t give much love to the Apple Watch Series 7. Fortunately, we already know that the Series 7 will get a big redesign this year. Though, PineLeaks did mention that the Apple Watch Series 7 will see its “first real battery life improvement since the original Apple Watch.”
Several rumors have pointed out that the Apple Watch will be slightly thicker so Apple can implement a larger battery in the device. The difference in size and weight will barely be noticeable for most people, though.
The Countdown Has Begun
Whether PineLeaks, or any other leaker for that matter, is correct about these rumors remains to be seen. However, the good news is that we’re only a few days away from Apple’s biggest event of the year, so we don’t have to wait much longer to see if the rumors are real or not.
