iPhone 13: Apple allegedly increases production significantly


Apple expects a good iPhone autumn 2021: The group has commissioned the production of around 90 million pieces of the next generation of smartphones from suppliers by the end of the year, such as the financial news agency Bloomberg reported on Wednesday.

It is a significant leap compared to previous years, in which Apple produced around 75 million new iPhones at the start of sales. In addition to the latest iPhone generation, usually introduced in September, Apple also continues to sell older model series, but no data is yet available on their production volume.

Apple also wants to fill the gap that the manufacturer Huawei is leaving in the smartphone market due to US sanctions and the corona pandemic, how Bloomberg writes with reference to an informed person.

According to analysts, the iPhone 12, which was launched a little later in autumn 2020, passed the 100 million mark last spring after around six months of sales. It is already considered to be the most successful iPhone model series in recent years. The OLED displays in the cheaper non-Pro model and the support for 5G networks have boosted demand, and Apple is also using a new housing design.

Like the display sizes offered, this should remain unchanged for the iPhone 13. However, a reduction in the “notch” – the noticeable notch on the upper front that offers space for the camera and sensors – can be expected, according to the report.

In at least one model variant of the iPhone 13, Apple will probably use an LTPO display with a variable refresh rate, which should reach up to 120 Hertz and thus enable a more fluid display of animations. To extend the battery life, the refresh rate when displaying static content can also be reduced significantly. This technology, called “Pro Motion” by Apple, is already in the iPad Pro. As usual, Apple is likely to integrate a more powerful A-Chip and revise the camera system, and improvements in optical zoom are to be expected, especially for video recordings, according to the financial news agency.
