Apple Rumored to Announce Green iPhone 13 and Purple iPad Air at 'Peek Performance' Event

Apple plans to introduce a new green color option for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini at its "Peek Performance" event tomorrow, according to Luke Miani, host of a tech channel on YouTube. This would be similar to Apple announcing a purple color option for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini at its April 2021 event last year.

Miani said Apple also plans to introduce a purple color option for the iPad Air, as is already available for the iPad mini. A new iPad Air as a whole is expected, with key new features rumored to include an A15 chip, an upgraded 12-megapixel Ultra Wide front camera with Center Stage support, 5G for cellular models, and Quad-LED True Tone flash.

Mockups of what the new colors could look like were shared by concept artist Ian Zelbo, and more details are available in an AppleTrack blog post.

Apple's virtual "Peek Performance" event takes place on Tuesday at 10 a.m. Pacific Time, with a video stream to be available on Apple's website and YouTube. MacRumors will have full coverage of the event as it unfolds, with other rumored announcements including a new iPhone SE, a so-called "Mac Studio" desktop computer, a new external display, and more.

Awesome!

My Dad needs a new iPhone and it would be cool for him to have the latest, exclusive color so I’m going to get this as a gift

I’m glad that Apple continues to release new colors every spring time, the purple iPhone 12 last spring was definitely cool

The color green looks stunning. I wish Apple would also upgrade the Pro and Pro max color lineup. I'll be upgrading every 6 months then.
