Autumn is just around the corner, so more and more information about upcoming Apple smartphones appears on the network.
Earlier, there were rumors that the new line would not be called the iPhone 13, but the iPhone 12s. But now a photo of a label for sealing Apple products in boxes has been posted on the Chinese social network Weibo. And it clearly states the name of the iPhone 13.
Of course, the image hasn’t been confirmed, but the author of the DuanRui leak last year also leaked images of the packaging stickers with the correct iPhone 12 name.
As a reminder, the family is expected to have four models: iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
In addition, the DigiTimes report says the price of the iPhone 13 has risen compared to last year’s iPhone 12. It is reported that Apple will have to take such a step in order to compensate for the increased costs of manufacturing chips from its leading supplier TSMC.
According to the report, TSMC plans to increase rates up to 20%, but from January next year. At the same time, Apple, the largest customer of TSMC, whose orders account for more than 20% of the plant’s total revenue, will experience price increases of 3-5%. To compensate for it, it is considering the possibility of increasing prices for the iPhone 13. But how much is unknown.
