iPhone 13 to Feature More Storage Than Ever Before

Apple's upcoming iPhone 13 is expected to feature an option for 1TB of storage, which is double the current maximum iPhone storage option and more than has ever been offered 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.

Last month, Apple leaker Jon Prosser also doubled down on an earlier claim that the ‌iPhone 13‌ lineup would feature a 1TB storage option.

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."

Major design changes are not expected for the 2021 iPhones, but we can likely count on a faster A-series processor, 120Hz ProMotion display, smaller notch, new 5G modem from Qualcomm, and more.
