What we expect from next week’s Apple event – TechCrunch

2 Mins read

We’ve been scouring the latest rumors and leaks and playing all of The Mamas and The Papa’s songs forward and backward to get the best possible picture of what we’re in store for with next Tuesday’s “California Streaming’” event. The invites, which went out a week, don’t appear to give the game away here. There was some extremely excellent AR trickery, accessible through Safari on mobile, pointing to some fancy camera upgrades. However, augmented reality has become a staple on these invites. Meanwhile, the California Streaming title seems likely to be more of a nod to the all-virtual nature of the event rather than anything to do with, say, Apple TV (of course, we’ve been one-more-thinged in the past). And as for that lovely shot of the Sierras — that could well be a nod to macOS, though the company has moved onto Monterey. It seems just as likely to be a reference to the title above.

Apple event

The most significant, straightforward, and vital answer to expect is a new iPhone. Last year’s models saw a notable delay due to COVID-19-related supply chain bottlenecks. Supply chain problems have persisted, but the company appears to be back on track with its pre-pandemic release cycle by all accounts. The iPhone 12’s most significant upgrade was, of course, the long-awaited addition of 5G. That and the delay led Apple to massive sales quarters amid a broader stalling of the overall mobile market. While other manufacturers have skipped the number out of superstitious concerns, Apple seems firmly on board with the iPhone 13 (even as renders of its successor, the iPhone 14, have reportedly already leaked).

Recent reports suggest that the iPhone 13 will arrive in four different configurations — much like its predecessor. So: the iPhone 13, 13 Mini, 13 Pro, and 13 Pro Max. The screen sizes should remain the same: 5.4, 6.1 (x2), and 6.7 inches. Meanwhile, a separate report suggests that we’ll see additional colors, including black, white, blue, purple, pink (rather than green), and Product (Red). But remember that offering different color availabilities in foreign markets isn’t entirely out of the question.

Unsurprisingly, camera upgrades appear to be the biggest news here. A word from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is that last year’s Pro Max model specs will graduate to the rest of the line (including, potentially, lidar). A ProRes video mode is said to be following the addition of ProRAW to further advance the handset’s bonafides as a semi-pro video shooting rig. Cinematic Video, meanwhile, is said to bring a Portrait-mode-style effect to Video. Kuo has also suggested that the devices get a feature based on the Qualcomm X60 that allows for emergency satellite calls — reportedly only available in select markets.
