With Apple just days away from their new iPhone event, a new report claims that there will be another storage size option. While we will have to wait until September 14 to prove true, a 1TB iPhone 13 could be in the offering. A new investor report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says he expects the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max to each have a 1TB storage configuration (h/t 9to5Mac).
The 1TB iPhone 13 will only be available in the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max models. Makes absolute sense, given the price tag that will come along with it. There is no information as to what the price will be. However, with the 512GB iPhone 12 Pro runs $1,299 while the Pro Max is $1,399, you do the math.
1TB iPhone 13 isn’t the only change.
The iPhone 13 and mini will drop the 64GB configuration. Going forward, they will be offered in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB options.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise. In fact, they are a bit late to the party. For the longest time, Apple has always been stingy with storage capacity. While Android phones offered expandable memory slots, Apple only offered 62GB devices.
Some will say that was to push iCloud storage space. While there is some validity to that assumption, it did keep many hardline users away.
Although in recent years, Android devices have done away with expandable memory. This has mostly been since Google offered online storage of photos for free. Until recently. However, Pixel users still have that unlimited free options. Most users stream content from Netflix to Spotify. There is little use for true storage space.
The only drawback for a 1TB iPhone 13 is the cost of the device alone. Right now, the price difference between a 256GB and a 512GB is $2,000. That means we may see a $1,599 iPhone 13 Pro Max.
