The Sellers Research Group (that’s me) thinks the timetable is almost right. However, I expect both the iPhone 13 and the third gen AirPods to go on sale on Friday, September 24. I think we’ll see a (virtual) Apple event announcing them on Tuesday, Sept. 14.
Here are the rumors/predictions for the iPhone 13:
° At least some models will support ProRes for videos and Portrait Mode for video.
° It will add advanced photo filters.
° It will pack an A15 processor.
° It will have an “always-on” display like the Apple Watch.
° It will adopt the improved Wi-Fi 6E protocol.
° High-end models of the upcoming iPhone 13 lineup will sport an upgraded ultra-wide camera with autofocus.
° Some, perhaps all, models will have LiDAR sensors.
As for the “AirPods 3,” they’re expected to look pretty much the same as the current version, but with a shortened stem, adjusted earbud body and an AirPods Pro-style charging case.
