iPhone 13 or 12, S, whatever they end up calling it.
I got these devices in, my first reaction was they’re cool, right?
There are some aesthetic differences between the upcoming stuff compared to last year’s model.
But I didn’t want to do a dedicated blog on it, because the visual differences, as interesting as they are, they’re relatively mild, right.
But then I saw this report on Bloomberg, Mark Gurman, a very reputable Apple leaker.
He’s stating that Apple’s requesting 90 million units of the iPhone 13 to be made.
That’s a very significant bump up from their regular requests and normally go for about 75 million, which is a lot of iPhones already.
But they are confident they have the intrinsic belief that they’re going to sell a lot more of these new iPhones than they have in the past.
Now, there are a couple of theories as to why this is happening. Right.
So, there’s, I’ve seen theories of like, the post-pandemic period, maybe people want to buy stuff, right to the retail therapy of buying a new iPhone, or maybe the whole idea of like, the second generation of a 5g device from Apple, people might want that.
But when I look at the rumored spec list of these new phones, the one feature that jumps out to me is the 120-hertz display on the iPhone 13 Pro, and the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
So, these are rumored to have these 120 hertz OLED panels with LTP tech.
It’s pretty interesting stuff.
But what makes it special, what makes it special is that people that are in this ecosystem, like the people that are deeply entrenched in the Apple ecosystem, which is a lot of people, they’ve never seen a high refresh screen on a phone before.
A lot of them, right. If you’re reading this article, even if you’re an iPhone user, you’re a tech enthusiast, you’ve at least heard of a high refresh screen, maybe you’ve had the privilege of seeing one, maybe even on one, if you’re an Android user, there’s a reasonable chance that you have a high refresh screen on your phone because they’ve been around for years.
Or if you’re on a game or PC gamer, you’ve seen high refresh screens. But there’s a huge, huge chunk of the apple ecosystem users that have never seen that before.
Ever, they may not even be heard of it before. And when they see this in a store, when they see a high refresh screen, in a store. It’s a whole new experience.
Like, think of phones, and the way that Apple tries to market things and try to sell you things new products every year. It’s hard.
They have a crack marketing team. They’re amazing at it.
But even then, it is a really difficult job to sell you a new iPhone, because of the differences between the old one and the new one every year.
They’re subtle. You have to sell it right. It’s got this feature. It’s faster. It’s got this new collar, this new design, there’s a whole bunch of things that make the new iPhone 13 better for the perceived market.
But it’s not super, super obvious. What is obvious is a screen you see a high refresh screen for the first time.
It’s like whoa, that’s, that’s new. That is a fast phone. That is something that my old phone didn’t do. Couldn’t do it.
And this is coming from someone that had access to gaming desktops, right, I played on high refresh screens or higher refresh screens.
But to go from a 60-hertz phone to a 90-hertz phone back in 2017. Was quite the experience.
And now Apple users have good I think a large chunk of never seen this type of tech before, they’re going to go from 60 hertz to 120 hertz overnight, and they’re going to see it on in a store or maybe like they pick up the device and it’s going to be a very compelling reason for them to be interested in this phone.
And the other thing, even if they’ve seen the iPads like the, you know, the promotion, iPads, 120-hertz displays, those are IPS panels.
There’s ghosting on that stuff, right? Oh, LED panel, zero millisecond response time. It’s a whole new experience.
And I think that is the reason why Apple’s pushing those bigger numbers because people are going to be interested in this thing in a way that they haven’t ever been for years when it came to a new iPhone 13.
iPhone 13 Feature’s
Now some other new features include a smaller notch on the front.
So, the front screen has a slightly smaller notch and an earpiece that supposedly moved up just above its original position.
The whole kind of camera system for face ID has shrunken down to fit into that smaller space.
iPhone 13 Battery
The battery cells be a little bit bigger I’m assuming to support that high refer screen even with LTP tech it’s going to draw more juice and the devices will be slightly thicker than the previous models of the iPhone 12.
But the biggest difference is the camera system, at least from the visual.
Just starting with the regular, let’s look at the so this is the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Mini, and they’re still making an iPhone 13 Mini.
If you look at the camera rate of the upcoming iPhone, you can see the diagonal layout of the cameras as opposed to the vertical layout from the previous generation.
It’s supposed to make room for some bigger components.
So apparently, they’re bringing in that sensor-shift technology over from the iPhone 12 Pro max like that ability to move the sensor around not just the lenses, but the actual sensor to deal with.
Just like their version of optical image stabilization. It’s like a more improved, more efficient manner of it.
iPhone 13 Camera
They’re bringing that across the line. And I think that’s supposedly the reason why they’re having this kind of diagonal camera orientation.
But the big one to me is like this chunky camera system on the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max, and these are big, like if you compare them to the previous iPhone 12 Pro Max, like this already had a large camera system, right?
I’m just going to clear these out of the way. This was a big camera system, I looked at this and I was like, That’s big. Do you compare it to? Well, it’s compared to this.
The suppose that iPhone 13 ProMax. That is a huge difference in the camera cluster.
Even more interesting is that the iPhone 13 Pro, like the regular size iPhone 13 Pro, has the same cluster size as the iPhone 13 Pro Max, which is unlike what we saw last year.
If you looked at the 12 Pro max to the 12 Pro, like the 12 Pro had a smaller camera cluster.
But this year, supposedly they’re rocking the same size.
This is what has been kind of confirmed by case manufacturers they’re saying that they’re the same kind of camera cut.
One of the things that I was stating, I think this was a sentiment felt by a lot of reviewers is that the difference between the 12th and the 12th Pro wasn’t massive like there was a lot of stuff that was so good about the 12 that it made it quite difficult for people to recommend a 12 Pro unless you cared about having a zoom lens on your phone.
Because that third lens, that zoom lens was the biggest difference between the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro.
But this year in the iPhone 13 series, it looks like there’s going to be a big difference between the pro and the non-pro phones like we’re talking the like the fast refresh screen, we’re talking a completely different camera system between iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 Pro.
It seems like if they’re charging pro money on this, you can be darn sure that they will, but I think there will be more differences between them to desegregate the plumb line and the proline.
But yeah, so this is I mean, this is what we have to look forward to a new phone from Apple, of course, it’s going to be a new phone from Apple. But, um, yeah, this I just wanted to share this with you.
Right, I just had some thoughts on this.
And my question is, what do you think like, you see that number 75 million units normally and they’re bumping it up to 90 million? What’s your guess as to why?
Because there’s, there’s got to be a reason it can’t just be like, we hope that we’re going to sell them so we’ll just make them, no, they believe they’re going to sell them is that thing is the screen the reason you think that’s going to take it off.
Alright, that’s it.
