Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives confirms in his latest note the arrival of a 1 TB storage option on iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, as well as the generalization of the LiDAR sensor on all iPhone models of 2021. Between the uncompressed ProRAW photos and the video capabilities of these devices, storage options closer to what iPad (1 TB or 2 TB) offers are increasingly in demand by customers.
For weeks, several rumors have been circulating around the iPhone 13 (we still don’t know if it’s their definitive name). Besides details on the size of the notch, or the new XXL camera sensors of the device, we expect Apple to offer a new internal storage option. Until now, Apple had never offered an internal storage option of more than 512 GB on its smartphones.
Yet Apple offers up to 2TB of storage on iPad Pro, mobile devices that are basically iPhone XXL with a slightly different OS. However, for several generations, Apple has progressed simultaneously on the quality of photos and videos of its iPhone, while presenting its most expensive products as professional tools.
IPHONE 13: TWO BIG RUMORS CONFIRMED ABOUT LIDAR STORAGE AND SENSORS
Apple then added uncompressed image formats such as ProRAW which generates particularly heavy files. The latest iPhones are also among the best smartphones for recording 4K videos, again with quite heavy files to the key. Of course the general public will probably opt for compressed formats and this is the behavior of the iPhone by default.
But for others, having more internal storage is a must. It has been several weeks since we expect that the iPhone 13 offers at least an internal storage option 1TB on the most expensive Pro models. Several reputable analysts and leakers have already corroborated this information, but Daniel Ives, analyst at Wedbush also confirms it in a note for investors. But the analyst does not stop there and also confirms two other rumors.
The first is that as expected, there will be a LiDAR sensor in the iPhone 13 regardless of the variant. What to democratize and develop the uses of this new component, especially for augmented reality and computational photography. Daniel Ives also says Apple will launch its new MacBook Pro 14 and 16 with M1 chip at WWDC 2021 next week.
