iPhone 13 to Feature More Storage Than Ever Before
In a note to investors seen by MacRumors, Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives said that initial Asian supply chain checks gave the firm "increased confidence" that the iPhone 13 will feature a considerably larger maximum storage option:
From a spec perspective, we have increased confidence that iPhone 13 will have a 1 terabyte storage option which is double from the highest Pro storage capacity today (512GB) and will also include a number of enhancements with Lidar across all iPhone 13 models.
Apple currently only offers this capacity as an option for its iPad Pro models, but a large amount of additional storage would make sense for some iPhone owners, especially those taking advantage of new photography features like ProRAW. ProRAW files are 10 to 12 times larger than HEIF or JPEG files, which means users will need a great deal more on-device storage or will need to pay for larger amounts of iCloud storage space.
Apple is predicted to be returning to its traditional September smartphone unveiling for the iPhone 13 lineup, which is expected to include the same-sized model options, including a 5.4-inch "iPhone 13 mini," 6.1-inch "iPhone 13" and "iPhone 13 Pro," and 6.7-inch "iPhone 13 Pro Max."
