Apple, one of the smartphone giants is set to release its annual iPhone range soon.
The Apple iPhone series is one of the best selling smartphones in the world recording over 100 million unit sales in the first super-cycle since the iPhone 6.
Undoubtedly, the Apple iPhone 13 is one of the most anticipated phones in the world but an exact date hasn’t been released yet.
Due to the Corona virus that led to the iPhone 12 delayed release thereby pushing it to October 13.
However, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the iPhone 13 will return to its normal release date of September, which means we’re expecting a possible September release.
Before 2020, Apple always launches its new iPhone models either on the first or second Tuesday of September.
This means that if Apple follows the same trend this year, then the iPhone 13 family will be released on September 7 or September 14, 2021.
However, multiple sources are certain the iPhone 13 will be announced on the third week of September which is 14 thereby making it the likely date.

Apple iPhone 13 Name
Every rumour about this next-gen phone has used iPhone 13 as the name for the upcoming model.
This is obvious since Apple went from iPhone 11 to iPhone 12 and the next in line will probably be Apple iPhone 13.
However, many experts suggest it’s going to be called the iPhone 12s
Why we’re not sure of the name of the next iPhone, many reports claim Apple will be sticking with the iPhone 13 name, which is obvious by many measures.
However, if we’re going to see iPhone “s” model then it means it’s going to have some similarities with its predecessor apart from a few improvements and the possible debut of iOS 15 OS.
Notwithstanding whether Apple goes with iPhone 13 or iPhone 12s, we’re sure of having many revamped features, upgrades, and debuting of interesting specs.
Left for us to say we’ll prefer having the Apple iPhone 13 to continue with the normal model trend.
Apple iPhone 13 Price
As for how much the Apple iPhone 13 will cost, we’re not expecting any price cheaper than that of last year.
The only Apple iPhone 13 price leak is that it’ll definitely cost more than the iPhone 12.
We’ll determine the price by relatively comparing it with the iPhone 12 price which starts at ₦400,000 (about $970), ₦300,000 (equivalent to $729), ₦500,000 (also $1,215), and ₦620,000 (about $1,505) for the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max respectively.
Although it’s reported the iPhone 12 mini is the list sold model, several leaks suggested that Applewill still release the iPhone 13 mini. Also, the rumours of 5G connectivity debuting on the Apple iPhone 13 will surely spring the price up.
If anything, we’re certainly sure the Apple iPhone 13 price won’t be cheaper than that of last year.
On top of the rumour is another news that Apple’s component suppliers are putting up the cost of their services and with the frequent rise of dollar rate, those in Nigeria won’t get it any cheaper too. However, let’s hope a miracle will happen, and the price should be lower without any deduction in quality, although that might never happen.
