And they are going to be jam-packed with brand new features, including a new leak of a new 240Hz refresh rate technology. Also make sure, you stick around after to get your complete guide of what we know so far for all the specs. For all four iPhone 13 models.
iPhone 13 Release Date 2021
So, let’s start with that iPhone 13 release date 2021. We are expecting an end September early October launch of all four iPhone 13 models. Now, right away you are probably wondering, how on earth have we got to this conclusion. Well, it’s quite simple and logistic when you think about it.
Let’s do a quick summary of how we have got here by doing a tiny summary of the last 10 years of iPhone model release dates. If we go way back to the iPhone 4 in 2011. This classic iPhone came out on october 14th 2011. Then skip a year to 2012 with the iPhone 5, it was September 21st 2012. Then let’s skip a few years ahead to say 2016, where it was the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus release year. Where we had a release date of September 16th. Then in 2019, we saw the release date of the iPhone XS or the 10s on September 21st and the 10R or the XR on October 26th. The last year for example, with the iPhone 12 models release dates they were from October 23rd to November 13th.

Now, mainly you can see the release dates have been an end September to end October. With the main exception of last year, where it was a bit unusual for the iPhone 12 due to Covid-19 we had a bit of delay on the release of the models. However, if the pandemic dies down we expect an Apple event in September for the iPhone 13 models with a release in mid of October compared to the delayed launch what we had in 2020.

iPhone 13 Refresh Rate
Let’s talk about that amazing new leak of the new 240Hz refresh rate. So, despite phones like the Samsung Galaxy S21 or the OnePlus 8T and many others having a 120Hz refresh rate. The iPhone 12 range is stuck at 60Hz but with the iPhone 13, Apple might leapfrog its competitors. This theory comes from a recently published Apple painting granted by the US patent and trademarks office and spotted by patently Apple. It’s a painting, that details a phone display with multiple refresh modes offering a native refresh rate and the ability to operate a potential several times that original rate.
So, as an example the native refresh rate might remain at 60Hz but the phone might be able to operate at two times for 120Hz or even three times that 480Hz or even four times that for 240Hz. In theory, it might be able to go even higher. Though, 240Hz is the highest example given on this patent. By having two or even more different refresh rates offered, you’d potentially be able to choose which you prefer.
A higher refresh rate means the screen refreshes more frequently. Which can make interactions feel smoother, but can also affect battery life. So, you may want to stick at a lower rate for certain activities and tasks. Alternatively, it is more possible just like the latest Galaxy S21 models that, this function would be a variable refresh rate.
Automatically switching refresh rates based on what’s most appropriate for the apps or features you are using. While some phones have edged above 120Hz with example with charmaid phones like the 10T Pro having a 144Hz refresh rate, no widely available ones have yet reached 240Hz. So, if the iPhone 13 does go that high it could be a massive win.

iPhone 13 Models and Prices
So, let’s talk about the iPhone 13 model prices and the best way to do it is to give you a summary of what we know for all the models. So, first of all there are four models this year just like there was with the iPhone 12.
iPhone 13 Normal
The smallest model is the iPhone 13 and again it has a 5.4-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2340×1080 and we are believing this will have a 60Hz refresh rate panel on it. For storage size though there will be a bit of a change in the iPhone 13. The smallest amount of storage will be 128GB, 256GB and also a 512GB storage option. The 64GB option looks like it’s going to be dropped. Then for chipsets we are looking to get the new A15 bionic with 5G connectivity. Which is around 25 to 30 percent faster than the current A14 bionic. What is around now in the iPhone 12 and that is still super powerful. For RAM we are going to get four GB of RAM inside it.
It will have an aluminium body similar to the iPhone 12 Mini. A dual camera setup on the rear and the base model for that 128GB storage model will start in at $699.
Standard iPhone 13
So, next you have the standard iPhone 13. Again, this is a 6.1-inch OLED display just like the iPhone 12 and it has a 2532×1107 resolution screen which again is also a 60Hz panel. Storage again just like the iPhone 13 Mini starts at 128GB and goes all the way up to 512GB storage options. There is also the A15 bionic again with 5G connectivity 4GB of RAM, the aluminium body as well and also that dual camera set up on the rear of this phone just like the iPhone 13 Mini and the base model will be starting in at $799 and that will give you the 128GB model.
iPhone 13 Pro
So, the next phone after this is the iPhone 13 Pro. Again, it’s a very similar size phone to the normal iPhone 13. It’s a 6.1-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2532×1170. However, this time the screen will have a 120Hz refresh rate panel on it, which will be a change to the iPhone 12 Pro. The storage options will be 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and also 1TB storage option for the first time on an iPhone. The chipset power with this iPhone 13 Pro will be the A15 bionic with 5G connectivity. It will have 6GB of RAM inside it and they will have a stainless-steel body frame. There is also a triple camera set up on the back including that possible Periscope we may see as well and also the lidar sensor. The base model is coming in at $999 and that will get you the 128GB storage space model.
iPhone 13 Pro Max
Finally, we have the iPhone 13 Pro Max. This is a 6.7-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2778×1280. Well it’s the same size as the iPhone 12 Pro Max. However, the big difference here is, it also has a 120Hz refresh rate panel compared to the 60Hz rate panel which is on the normal iPhone 12 Pro Max. The storage options we have are, 128GB, 256GB, 512Gb and again that 1TB for the first time on an iPhone. Then for the chipset, we have the A15 bionic again with 5G connectivity. There is 6Gb of ram with stainless-steel body frame as well just like the iPhone 13 Pro normal. A triple camera setup again including that Periscope possibly and also the lidar sensor. The base model will be coming in at $1099.
So, as you can see, there are some big improvements on the iPhone 13 models. Mainly with the Pro models having that 120Hz refresh rate display.
More Details About iPhone 13 Release Date 2021
For release date it has been a bit unsure for the iPhone 13 this year due to Covid-19. However, if the pandemic does die down for next year, we expect the iPhone 13 to come out in September just like the time it has done in many other years for other iPhone releases, or we might see the phone being released again in around mid of October time, just like it has for the iPhone 12 if the pandemic does conclude on.
Design of iPhone 13
So, next for design-wise we are expecting not many huge changes more like enhancements to the current iPhone 12 design. The iPhone 12 is the newest design or newest shape since the release of the iPhone 10 or iPhone X in 2017. Apple generally like to keep their same designs in their phones for at least three or four years and that’s the iPhone 12 is the newest design. We can’t really see there will be a huge design change for the next version of the iPhone for iPhone 13.
Colors of iPhone 13
For Colors, we are expecting the same colors as the iPhone 12. However, we may see another new color introduced something that apple seems to be doing every year. Now it is introducing a new color to their platter for all their new models. However, they may also take a color out just like what they did with the iPhone 11 Pro models. We did have the midnight green that has been switched out this year to get the pacific blue.
Models of iPhone 13
It is also worth noting that we are probably going to be getting four iPhones again. These will be the iPhone 13 Mini, the iPhone 13 normal, an iPhone 13 Pro and an iPhone 13 Pro Max and all four phones will have IP68 at six meters again for 30 mins. So, this means chucking the phone into a six meter deep swimming pool, if you can find one or a clean lake on your vacation and you fancy diving down six meters within 30 minutes and rescuing it in theory the phone should be but you might not be yourself.
So, in this article we have talked about the iPhone 13 release date 2021. Hope you enjoyed reading my article and get some details about iPhone 13 release date, models, pricing, colors, design and much more. We will come back in the future with more updates on iPhone 13 release date 2021.
