Specs for the iPhone 13 lineup continue to arise in the rumor mill as Apple’s next-gen flagship offering is expected in the fall of this year. Just like last year, the lineup, is expected to include high-end models, and these will most likely be called the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. A new note to investors from Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives has suggested that the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max may come with internal storage of 1TB. Additionally, the investor note also suggests that all models in the iPhone 13 lineup can support LiDAR sensors.
Ives’ latest investor note was viewed by MacRumors and it suggests that the iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro may include an internal storage option of 1TB. Both models are also likely to be offered in lower storage configurations, but the 1TB storage option can be included as a high-end configuration. The maximum storage offered on iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max from last year is 512 GB.
If the 1TB claim is true, these Apple iPhones will be the first to offer so much native storage. While smartphones have been known to expand storage via an external microSD card, very few leading handsets on the market offer native storage of 1TB.
Ives also forecasts that all models that are supposed to arrive in the iPhone 13 lineup – iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max – could have LiDAR sensors. Last year, only the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max variants came with LiDAR sensors, and its expansion to all models is a testament to Apple’s efforts to make AR more common. LiDAR sensors are currently used for AR effects and low light photography.
The iPhone 13 range is said to contain larger batteries and 5G mmWave technology in more than 50% of the models.
