” California streaming Says the invitation. This Tuesday, September 14, is the return of Apple with a major conference (“keynote”) organized at its headquarters in Cupertino (California, United States). The brand with the bitten apple must unveil its new products, of which leaks and rumors already give a first glimpse.
iPhone 13: everything for the photo
Every year, his iPhone. The highlight of the keynote will certainly be the new iPhone range, with the continuation of the “mini” (5.4 inch screen), classic (6.1 inch), “Pro” (6.1 inch and increased capacity) versions. and “Pro Max” (6.7 inches and increased capacities). On the denomination side, most specialists bet on “iPhone 13” rather than “iPhone 12 S”.

While the design shouldn’t really change, overall performance will improve, with doped A-chips and a 120Hz display, Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman reports. Better, the screen could integrate a fingerprint sensor, allowing to unlock the iPhone (easy recognition will always be present), according to the “Wall Street Journal”. Finally, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, storage capacities will be increased, going to a minimum of 128 GB, even the “Pro” versions could go up to 1 TB.
The main change would lie in the improvement of photographic sensors, which would be larger and thicker. The classic and mini iPhones would still have two lenses on the back, a wide-angle and an ultra-wide-angle, while the iPhone Pro and Pro Max will still have their three sensors (the same as the aforementioned two and a telephoto lens as a bonus). . To all these optics would be added a LiDAR sensor, in order to measure the distance of an object, for augmented reality applications and improve low-light rendering. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo finally mentions the addition of an autofocus on the ultra wide-angle, for macro photos. Finally, according to Mark Gurman, these new sensors will mainly improve video, which could benefit from Portrait mode, as well as a ProRes mode (equivalent to ProRaw mode).

All this for what price? Difficult to predict the final bill. Will Apple stay on its range from 809 euros? Or, to preserve its margins, will it postpone the increase in the cost of new chips, whose TSMC semiconductors will increase by up to 20% from next January.
AirPods 3, Apple Watch Series 7 …
Beyond the iPhones, Apple could present a third version of the AirPods wireless earbuds, taking over the design of the AirPods Pro, but without the active noise reduction, for a lower cost, reports Ming-Chi Kuo.

The analyst also mentions a new connected watch, the Apple Watch Series 7, whose screen would be enlarged by a few millimeters, by cutting off the edges. Functional side, it should make it possible to measure blood pressure and the level of oxygen in the blood, reports the Japanese newspaper “Nikkei”. It should also have better water resistance. Finally, some observers evoke the presence of a fingerprint sensor in the “digital crown”, the dial on the side.
