The price of the iPhone 13 is the biggest of speculations and now a new report has suggested that the prices are going to be higher than that of the iPhone 12 as the production cost is likely to increase.
Apple’s largest chip supplier TSMC plans to increase prices for “sub 7nm process technologies” by up to 5% and for “mature process technologies” by up to 20%. The report states that Apple is likely to set higher prices for its upcoming iPhone and other series.
According to IT Home, the iPhone 13 series is already listed on an e-commerce website in China. A report earlier said that Apple is likely to unveil all four models of its upcoming ‘iPhone 13’ lineup with bigger batteries, an updated chipset and expanded mmWave 5G support.
The iPhone 13 lineup could mirror the iPhone 12 family of phones with the 5.4-inch iPhone 13 Mini, 6.1-inch iPhone 13, 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The device is said to be powered by Apple’s next-generation A15 chip based on TSMC’s 5nm+ process.
The entire iPhone 13 range is also expected to have a LiDAR sensor. The sensor first appeared on the latest generation iPad Pro in March this year, followed by the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
