Ives predicts that a big driver of this growth will come from iPhone owners, who have held onto their smartphones for the past few years.

This gels with the dates of previous years’ iPhone event, with the notable exception of 2020, which was delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Apple is prone to host its events on Tuesdays, so it’s possible that the 2021 Apple event will fall on September 14, all other things being equal.
In general, the iPhone 13 is said to be a refining update compared to the previous iPhone 12, with very few changes to the quality of life implemented.

Finally, Apple may offer a 1TB option for the iPhone 13. That’s a whopping amount of storage that – in combination with the A15 processor – will future-proof the iPhone 13 Pro for years to come. If these reports turn out to be true, then the iPhone 13 is already shaping up to be a good update for those who own the older model.
