If you just got your hands on a shiny new iPhone 13, tough luck—it might already be outdated.
According to industry insider Jeff Pu, Apple is planning to release four new iPhones later this year, bringing some major upgrades to the company’s flagship smartphone.
If Apple sticks to its usual September release window, this Autumn will see the launch of an iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. They’ll have upgraded memory across the board, high-tech new ProMotion displays, and increased storage.
Although the analyst in question is not as well established as others in the field, his claims are said to be based on supply chain checks and support rumours from other more well-known sources.
Pu expects iPhone 14 Pro models to include a 48-megapixel camera, which supports other rumours and leaks from independent analysts.
Each of the four models will also have 6GB memory, which represents a 2GB upgrade from the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini.
He has also claimed that iPhone 14 Pro will start with 256GB of storage, while the standard iPhone 14 will have 64GB. These claims have been met with some raised eyebrows from MacRumors, as it would represent a two-fold increase from the iPhone 13’s current 128GB.
The new iPhone 13 was only released in September, but it’s predictably become very popular over the last few months.
It adds mostly incremental upgrades to the previous iPhone 12, including a faster A15 Bionic which is up to 50 percent more powerful than the competition.
The iPhone 13 also has a much larger battery than the iPhone 12, as well as some big camera upgrades. It’s a little bit heavier than its predecessor but is exactly the same size as the iPhone 12. It’s available in black, blue, white, pink, and red.
