Supply chain analysis from Daniel Ives at Wedbush indicates that the iPhone 13 is on its way to a regular launch in September.
Last year, the supply chain disrupted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic Apple broke its usual tradition without any new iPhone models being launched in September. Instead, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro were released on October 23, with the Mini and Max arriving on November 13.
In previous years, Apple has been releasing iPhone models for several months. For example, in 2018, the iPhone XR was released in October, but the iPhone XS series had launched in September as normal. However, 2020 was the first year that Apple did not launch a single new iPhone model in September, a trend that had otherwise been maintained since the iPhone 4S in 201
Wedbush says supply chain controls indicate that the iPhone 13 series is currently scheduled for release in the third week of September. However, ‘product model adjustments’ may push it out to early October, at least for some iPhone 13 models.
The iPhone 13 is expected to have various feature upgrades, such as a 120Hz screen with a high refresh rate, a smaller notch and improved cameras. As reported earlier, the analyst believes that the iPhone 13 will offer 1 TB storage models for the first time.
Wedbush expects Apple to build 25% more iPhone 13 devices than the iPhone 12, with current estimates within 100 million. The analyst believes that iPhone demand remains strong, largely driven by consumer and operator interest in 5G phones.
