The leaker Max Weinbach has today shared a series of rumors about Apple's upcoming iPhone 13 models, Apple Watch Series 7, and third-generation AirPods via his Twitter account @PineLeaks.

Weinbach's most notable ‌iPhone 13‌ rumors from his latest tweets are listed below:
  • No price rises for the ‌iPhone 13‌ lineup.
  • The ‌iPhone 13‌ mini will offer approximately one additional hour of battery life.
  • The ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro Max will feature an 18 to 20 percent larger battery compared to the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
  • Both the ‌iPhone 13‌ and ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro will continue to use the same battery components as last year, but offer batteries that are 10 percent larger.
  • The battery life of the ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro may be worse than the ‌iPhone 13‌ due to the power consumption of the 120Hz-capable ProMotion display.
  • The ProMotion displays of the ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro and ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro Max will throttle to 60Hz when Low Power Mode is enabled.
  • The ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro Max will continue to offer exclusive features that the ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro will not have.
  • The camera sensors across all models will be able to receive at least 15 percent more light, with the biggest increase on the Ultra Wide camera's sensor, with up to 40 percent more light.
  • "Cinematic" portrait video mode will use an electronic image stabilization (EIS) known as "Warp." This mode will attempt to keep the subject in the center of the frame, use optical image stabilization in a more "smooth" operating mode, and offer additional effects.
  • Night Mode will recognize when stars are in the frame and adjust settings accordingly. A new algorithm analyses structures, resharpens, and adjusts shadows. The color science of ‌Night Mode‌ will also be "visibly" improved.
According to Weinbach, Apple's third-generation ‌AirPods‌ will feature a charging case with a 20 percent larger battery compared to the second-generation ‌AirPods‌, but will offer wireless charging as standard. The batteries inside each individual AirPod will also be around the same size as previous models. The sound quality is said to be largely the same as the second-generation ‌AirPods‌, but with slightly improved bass and low-end.

Weinbach added that the ‌Apple Watch Series 7‌ is set to see the Apple Watch's biggest improvement in battery life yet.

Apple's September event is scheduled to kick off tomorrow and the company is expected to unveil new iPhone models, Watch Series 7, and AirPods 3. And although we know a bunch of unconfirmed details about the upcoming iPhone 13 already, new information keeps pouring in.

Now, a new report (thanks, 9to5Mac) by industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Apple will ditch the 64GB storage option completely and add a 512GB variant in iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. Their current counterparts offer 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB variations. The move could also mean that the entry price for an iPhone will be bumped up provided that Apple doesn't bring the price of the 128GB version down to match that of the existing 64GB one.

Meanwhile, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will offer storage up to 1TB. The current storage options of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB will remain as well, so hopefully, the bar for entry in terms of price isn't being raised. The 1TB variant was already rumored previously, but at that time, it was not clear whether it would be available for all models or select ones.

Kuo has also cautioned that iPhone 13 may be affected by supply issues, saying that:
We believe that iPhone’s current production challenge is the component shortage. Due to the component shortage, the legacy models had been cut by about 5–10% in 3Q21. The iPhone 13 shipment in 4Q21 may have a potential downside risk due to component shortage. However, this downside has a limited impact on iPhone 13 shipments. We believe that iPhone 13 shipments in 2021 can grow by more than 10% YoY (vs. iPhone 12 shipments in 2020).
Although we don't know the full list of specifications yet, there have been rumors that this year's iPhone refresh will feature an always-on 120Hz display, a smaller notch, a vapor chamber for better cooling, smaller batteries, and faster 5G. We'll know for sure how much all of these rumors hold up once Apple officially unveils its new hardware on September 14 at at 10AM PT/1PM ET.
