Apple is set to hold its launch event on September 14 at 6pm UK time. The phones will then be available for pre-order from Friday September 17, and are expected to hit the shelves around a week later, on Friday September 24.
The interest in iPhone 13 possibly reflects consumer’s need to learn more about the device in terms of price and features. The report highlights how the phone’s price might play out. According to the research report:
“Notably, a significant focus will be on the iPhone 13’s pricing. The phone’s development comes in the wake of a global chip shortage that almost crippled several industries. Notably, TSMC, Apple’s primary chip supplier, has reportedly increased costs by up to 20%, and the company might pass the charges to customers.”
Overall, the iPhone 13 is expected to have a host of improved features from the successful iPhone 12 series launched last year. The main focus will be on features like design, camera, battery life, and connectivity.
