Most companies across the globe faced a slowdown in their business owing to the Covid-19 crisis but there were a few like Apple that managed to keep things steady for them. Despite several challenges, the tech company ensured that sales remained stable and the company manages to protect itself from any major crisis because of the prevailing situation.
In the middle of the pandemic, Apple took a bold step by unveiling the iPhone 12 series of phones. The gamble paid off and iPhone 12 series was received very well by the consumers. Its success has encouraged Apple to go ahead with its plans of launching the iPhone 13 series in a grand fashion this year. The next-generation iPhones are being keenly awaited and now, one hears that the Cupertino-based giant is planning to launch the iPhone 13 series in September this year.
What to Expect from iPhone 13 Series?
The upcoming series would include the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. The features and specifications of these phones have been a subject of speculation for some time and though there has been no confirmation about any of the unverified reports, it has helped in keeping the buzz alive. One expects the Apple iPhone 13 Pro to offer a new matte black option along with a much better Portrait mode.
According to a report published by Max Weinback and from data sourced from the YouTube channel of Everything ApplePro, the iPhone 13 will offer a matte black option for both the Pro and Pro Max models. These models will feature a stainless-steel covering that would help in reducing the possibility of fingerprints and smudges appearing on the surface of the phone. A newly designed rear camera is also expected to be found on these models.
On the upcoming iPhone Pro devices, the functionality of the portrait mode will be heavily dependent on LiDAR. At the moment, LiDAR features on devices like the iPhone 12 Pro, Pro Max and iPad Pro and primarily contributes towards low-light image photography.
The display screens on the upcoming iPhones are said to be provided by Samsung. The entry of Samsung has been bolstered by the fact that Apple now wants to use LTPO instead of OLED display panels in a bid to help users conserve energy while using their phones. This, however, would not have an effect on the refresh rate offered by the display screens of the devices.
