The upcoming iPhone 13 series promises numerous upgrades, but one of them may address a common issue: the never-ending desire for more storage.
According to 9to5Mac, well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated that the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max will be available with up to 1TB of storage.
In addition to the 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage options carried over from the iPhone 12 Pro family. While that will undoubtedly be costly, it may be appealing if you capture a lot of videos or want that much more futureproofing.
Kuo also predicted that the base iPhone 13 and 13 mini would start at 128GB, rather than the (inadequate) 64GB of their predecessors. There would also be a new 512GB tier, so you wouldn’t have to splurge on a Pro model to get more than 256GB.
Other ways to save money may exist. The analyst also predicted that the current AirPods would continue to sell alongside the third-generation models set to be unveiled at Apple’s September 14th event.
He wasn’t sure how this would affect pricing, but the most likely outcome is a price drop that allows the third-generation AirPods to occupy the existing space.
Apple may charge a higher price for the new wireless earbuds, but there won’t be much of a difference between them and the (normally $250) AirPods Pro.
If the leaks are correct, the new AirPods will look more like their Pro counterparts and support spatial audio, but they will lack the eartips and active noise cancellation found on the higher-end buds.
As a result, the current, no-frills AirPods could become the ‘budget’ option for those looking for alternatives to the Pixel Buds A, Nothing Ear 1, and other value-focused rivals.
