iPhone 13: Apple drops 64 GB of storage and climbs to 1 TB on Pro editions
With the iPhone 13s, Apple has decided to review the internal storage options offered on its smartphones. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the Cupertino giant will no longer offer 64 GB of memory on affordable models. In addition, Apple would launch iPhone 13 Pro for the first time with 1TB of internal storage. Shortly before the keynote, the analyst confirms the latest rumors.
As the iPhone 13 keynote is fast approaching, a wave of configuration leaks has appeared on the web. Some of the leaks contradict previously surfaced reports. For example, a Ukrainian reseller hinted that the 1TB configuration was finally abandoned. Earlier, another leak predicted the abandonment of 256 GB of storage.
In this context, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo spoke in a new note dedicated to investors. According to him, Apple has reviewed the memory options usually available. Thereby, iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini will be offered in the following configurations : 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB. Apple signs the death sentence for the 64 GB option. Buyers will have to turn to 128 GB, which is more comfortable given the video recording capabilities of iPhones.
Apple jumps to 1TB of storage on iPhone 13 Pro
As for the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, Apple would offer the following options: 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB. Obviously, the 256 GB intermediate configuration is still in the game. Especially, Apple offers for the first time iPhones with 1TB of internal storage. This decision would be motivated by the integration of a special anamorphic lens capable of film in 8K up to 45 frames per second. To allow iPhones to store the sequences, Apple has revised the amount of storage offered.

In the process, the analyst mentions the shortage of computer chips. According to his information, iPhone 13 production may be impacted by the shortage. It is not impossible that the smartphone will be launched in more limited quantities than expected. It will not be necessary to hang around during pre-orders. Despite this setback, Ming-Chi Kuo believes that “iPhone 13 shipments in 2021 may increase by more than 10% ” compared to last year. Anyway, we will know everything about the iPhone 13 from Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at 7 p.m.
