Ives’ latest investor note has been accessed by MacRumors and it suggests that the iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro may include 1TB internal storage option. The two models are likely to be offered in lower storage configurations as well, but the 1TB storage option may be included as the top-end configuration. The maximum storage offered on last year’s iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max is 512GB.
If the 1TB claim is true, these will be Apple’s first iPhones to offer that much native storage. While smartphones are known to expand storage via an external microSD card, very few flagship handsets in the market offer 1TB native storage.
Ives also predicts that all models rumoured to arrive in the iPhone 13 lineup — iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max — may have LiDAR sensors. Last year, only the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max variants came with LiDAR sensors and its expansion to all models testifies Apple’s efforts towards making AR more mainstream. LiDAR sensors are currently used for low-light photography and AR effects.
iPhone 13 range is reported to pack larger batteries and sport mmWave 5G tech in over 50 percent models.
