Apple’s next iPhone mirrors last year’s iPhone and adds more storage


SAN RAMON, CALIF. – Apple has unveiled its next line of iPhones, including a model that offers twice the storage available in previous versions and other modest upgrades from last year’s editions that turned out to be a big one success among consumers devouring the latest technology during the pandemic.

The pre-recorded video event that aired Tuesday gave Apple a neat story after a few hectic weeks. Recent issues have included a hastily patched security vulnerability that could allow hackers to covertly take control of iPhones and other Apple devices; a backlash to the company’s plans to search for child sexual abuse images on iPhones and a federal judge ruling that has further deepened the competitive barrier Apple has built around its app store , which generates billions of dollars in profits every year.

As has been the case since the late Apple co-founder unveiled the first iPhone in 2007, Apple executives have reverently spoken of the latest model, although it is not drastically different from the version. released by Apple almost a year ago.

Like last year’s model, the new iPhone 13 will come in four different models, with prices ranging from $ 700 to $ 1,100. They should be in stores on September 24.

Perhaps the most notable change in the latest high-end iPhone 13 will be an option for a full terabyte of storage – that’s 1,000 gigabytes – on the device, down from its previous maximum of 512 gigabytes.

Apple also promises better cameras on the iPhone 13, including an improved ultra-wide lens, cinema-like video capability, and technology for better nighttime images. (The latter reflects a feature that Google has long offered in its Pixel phone line, which haven’t yet been big sellers.) As usual, the latest iPhones are also said to have longer lasting batteries.

“We continue to make the iPhone more capable,” boasted Apple CEO Tim Cook.
