Tomorrow evening Apple will officially unveil its latest iPhone lineup but, true to form, information on the devices is leaking ahead of time. To that end, it is believed the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max will both feature options with 1TB storage.
Fuelling this report is noted industry analyst Ming Chi-Kuo who has normally been on the money when it comes to these sorts of predictions.
As for the significance of the announcement, while an increase in internal storage is nothing new for the latest iterations of flagship phones, this news is potentially notable for two reasons.
The first is that if true, the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max would be the first Apple smartphones to feature such a storage capacity and the second is what this could mean in terms of the hardware onboard the Pro models.
To that end we saw Apple up the ante in terms of what quality of footage the iPhone 12 Pro options could muster, with content creators and filmmakers being targeted by the device’s ability to capture raw video and utilise 5G to store it in the cloud.
Perhaps then, given the fact that 5G is not as proliferate globally as many thought it would, the native capacity of the Pro models could help compensate.
It could also mean that Apple has improved upon the camera tech with the new iPhone 13 Pro options, which we are also quite keen on seeing tomorrow night.
Either way, with less hype surrounding this iPhone launch compared to previous years, it will be interesting to see what Tim Cook and co. have in store given the current state of the mobile industry.
For those who are not interested in the more expensive and larger capacity Pro models, Kuo also noted in an investor report that the regular iPhone 13 and 13 mini would come in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB, skipping 64GB altogether.
For us though, we’re hoping chargers make a return, but that’s more wishful thinking than anything else.
