According to Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives, even the iPhone 13 mini might contain a LiDAR sensor.
As Apple’s next-generation flagship product is expected in the autumn of this year, the iPhone 13 range characteristics keep showing up in the rumor mill. Premium editions are expected to be introduced, like they were last year, and will most likely be branded the iP 13 Pro and iP 13 Pro Max. According to Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives’ latest investor letter, the iP 13 Pro and iP 13 Pro Max might include 1TB of internal storage. In addition, the investor letter claims that LiDAR sensors would be included in all iPhone versions.
MacRumors obtained a copy of Ives’ most recent investor letter, which claims that the iPhone Pro Models would include a 1TB internal storage option. Lower storage choices are anticipated to be available for both models, but the 1TB storage option may be featured as the top-end variant. Last year’s iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max had a maximum storage capacity of 512GB.
If the 1TB storage claim is correct, they will be Apple’s first iPhones with that much storage built-in. While smartphones are recognized for allowing users to extend capacity through a microSD card, only a handful of premium devices provide 1TB of capacity out of the box.
Ives also believes that all of the iPhone 13 variants rumored to be released — the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, 13 Pro, and 13 Pro Max — would include LiDAR sensors. Only the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max models had LiDAR sensors last year, and their extension to all models demonstrates Apple’s attempts to make AR more widespread. Currently, LiDAR sensors are employed for low-light photography and augmented reality effects.
More than half of the iPhone 13 models are said to include bigger batteries and mmWave 5G technology.
