Daniel Ives, Wedbush analyst, persists and hints: According to him, Apple will offer the option of getting an iPhone 13 Pro with 1TB of storage. This rumor was already raised by the person concerned last February. This will be twice the current maximum capacity and since the iPad Pro 2021 range has maxed out at 2 TB, we can imagine Apple increasing that to a terabyte for its smartphones.
According to the analyst, this option will be reserved only for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. On the other hand, and this is new, they have also mentioned the possibility of normalizing the LiDAR sensor on the back of the smartphone. On the 2020 range, only two top-of-the-range models dedicated to distance calculation and especially useful for augmented reality include this tool. According to Daniel Ives in the 2021 range, four iPhone 13s will be equipped with the sensor.
And while doing so, analysts also suggest that Monday’s keynote, the opening of WWDC 2021, will be an opportunity to announce the content. He talks about the launch of new Apple silicon MacBook Pros, an updated 16-inch and a new 14-inch. These two computers are known for rumours, we expect them strongly for 2021 and the only real unknown is the exact date. Mark Gurman was talking about a summer launch, so an announcement next week might make sense.
However, we will take these new rumors with caution. Daniel Ives had mixed predictions for the last special event, correctly heralds the arrival of a new colorful iMac. However, he was also wrong about the appearance of a new entry-level iPad as well as a new Apple Pencil.
