Looking again at one other week of stories and headlines from Cupertino, this week’s Apple Loop consists of September launch occasion, Apple confirming iPhone line-up, new iPhone 13 options leak, MacBook Professional launch dates, scary lightning cable hack, AirPods 3 particulars, impression of App Retailer adjustments, and the way the Nintendo Swap would possibly look a bit like an iPhone.

Apple Loop is right here to remind you of some of the very many discussions which have occurred round Apple during the last seven days (and you’ll learn my weekly digest of Android information right here on Forbes).
iPhone 13’s Lacking Possibility (Up to date Sept 13)
With lower than per week to go, the ultimate particulars of the iPhone 13 household are clicking into place, together with the SKU particulars of the 4 handset flavors due to a leak from an internet retailer. Curiously although, the longed for 1TB iPhone 13 Professional Max is just not current; the belief being that the worldwide chip scarcity might have made this an excessive amount of of a stretch on Apple’s stock.

“In accordance with the listings on a Ukrainian web site, the iPhone 13 mini will are available in six color choices – Black, Blue, Purple, Pink, White, and PRODUCT (Pink). The mini might be out there in 64GB and 128GB storage variations.
“The iPhone 13 will are available in the identical six color choices just like the mini, whereas storage choices are 128GB and 256GB. The iPhone 13 Professional and iPhone 13 Professional Max might be out there in Black, Silver, Gold, and Bronze color choices, in line with the web site. Whereas the Professional mannequin might be supplied in 128GB and 256GB storage variations, the Professional Max will are available in 256GB and 512GB storage variants.”


Famous Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, writing within the day earlier than the iPhone 13 household is launched, has confirmed that the 64 GB storage choices that have been out there with the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini might be depreciated; the entire iPhone 13 fashions will now begin at 128 GB of storage. Not solely is the decrease tier going to start out additional up the storage charts, however Kuo believes that we’ll see the 1 TB choice for these wanting on the top-of-the-line iPhone 13 Professional and iPhone 13 Professional Max. Joe Rossignol stories:
“In a analysis notice with funding agency TF Worldwide Securities, obtained by MacRumors, Kuo mentioned the iPhone 13 lineup will begin with 128GB of storage, with no 64GB choice for any fashions. Kuo added that the iPhone 13 Professional and iPhone 13 Professional Max might be out there with as much as 1TB of storage, which might be the most important capability ever supplied for an iPhone.”
What we may very well be taking a look at right here is Apple’s choice on methods to allocate provides throughout the world chip scarcity. Providing an iPhone 1TB of storage makes a powerful assertion across the platform, however there’s no requirement to supply the identical SKUs world wide. Ukrainian iPhones could be restricted to 512 GB, whereas US shoppers might have the 1TB choice.
