We’re officially one day away from Apple’s biggest event of the year and a lot has already been said about what to expect. However, that does not mean that more information cannot arrive. The latest scoop comes from Apple Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who in an investor note provides some more details about the expected Apple products: the iPhone 13 series and AirPods 3.
iPhone 13 series
According to Kuo, the storage capacity of iPhones will hit 1TB this year with the Pro models. Both the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro are expected to offer up to 1TB of storage, making them the first iPhones to offer. so much storage on board. As for the non-Pro models, iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, the storage can be expected to be the same as that of the iPhone 12 duo, that is, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.
It is said that Apple will launch the third generation AirPods on September 14 and not the second generation of AirPods Pro, according to Kuo. However, the new AirPods are likely to offer a similar design to the AirPods Pro.
Because of this, Kuo believes that the AirPods lineup can follow either course after the launch of the new AirPods. In the first case, Kuo says that Apple can launch the third-generation AirPods at a higher price than the current second-generation AirPods, thus keeping the existing model on the line. Or, Apple can lower the price of the existing AirPods and replace them with the third-generation AirPods at the price of $ 199.
Therefore, according to Kuo, Apple plans to keep the second-generation AirPods in the lineup, as there may still be customers who prefer the older design.
Apple Watch Series 7
Since the design change is on the table, Kuo suggests that Apple was facing production problems. Because of this, there was a delay in mass production of the new models, but Apple seems to have solved the problem.
Therefore, the mass production of panel modules is scheduled to start in mid-September. He also adds that Luxshare, Apple’s supplier, is “aggressively doubling down production lines” with the goal of making the Watch Series 7 widely available by mid to late October.
