When Is the Apple iPhone 13 Coming Out?

Luke Fitzpatrick

Now that we’re in September, the world is eagerly awaiting the release of the latest iPhone. The newest model, expected to be called the iPhone 13, will hopefully be announced at Apple’s upcoming fall event. All signs point to a particular date.

While Apple’s schedule altered last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, things seem to be back on track in 2021. So, here’s all we know about the soon-to-be-announced iPhone 13. Read on to find out all about the announcement and release dates for the iPhone 13, the predicted color range, and more.

When will the iPhone 13 be announced?

Apple hosts an Apple Special Event every September. Since 2012, all-new iterations of the tech giant’s flagship iPhones have made headwinds during these September events. Last year was the only exception. But, with fewer disruptions this year, it is expected that we can once again rely on the traditional schedule.

Plenty of sources point to Tuesday, September 14, as the most likely date for the upcoming Apple Special Event. However, it probably won’t look like it used to. Given that coronavirus restrictions are still in place at Apple Headquarters, the chances are high that the announcement will happen virtually.

When is the iPhone 13 coming out?

New iPhones are typically released about a week and a half after the phone launch rumors. They are also usually made available to the general public on a Friday. So, you can mark September 24 as a provisional date in your calendar. Other signs reinforce this prediction.

According to a report released in April, the production of next-generation iPhone chips has been running ahead of schedule. So, it looks like Apple has been attempting to mitigate any potential delays resulting from existing coronavirus restrictions. That means a September release is quite likely to occur.

When is the iPhone 13 Pro Max coming out?

As with last year’s iPhone 12, the latest announcement will introduce four new iPhone 13 phones. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has suggested that we expect to see the exact four model sizes as last year. These include the Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max, the iPhone 13 Pro, the iPhone 13 Mini, and the standard Apple iPhone 13. The significant difference we can expect to see between the new and the old models is the camera quality.

The likely Apple iPhone 13 colors

As well as some older shades, the iPhone 13 is also likely to be available in a newer color range. So, as well as the blue, green, black, white, red, and purple finishes of the iPhone 12, buyers will have a choice of some bold new colors.

The leaked colors include matte black, silver, orange, sunset gold, and rose gold. However, there’s no way of knowing which will be available until the announcement. Still, if there’s any truth in the leaks, consumers will have an exciting range to select from come release day.

How much will the iPhone 13 cost?

Even though the one major upgrade to the iPhone 13 is the camera, it could cost more than its predecessor. The price hike is said to come as a result of inflation due to global shortages. As such, expect a potentially notable price increase.

For a point of reference, the standard iPhone 12 cost $799. So, chances are you’ll have to pay a higher price for the baseline model this time around.

The latest iPhone 13 news

If the predictions are accurate, then the release date for the Apple iPhone 13 should be just around the corner. And, with a bold new range of colors and a better camera, there’s plenty for Apple fans to look forward to. Unfortunately, however, the price hike might not be the news people were hoping for.
