The iPhone 13, the name by which we commonly refer to the device that Apple will unveil next September, he already has an official name. And it will be called the iPhone 13 according to rumors coming from Apple’s Asian supply chain. In addition, these same rumors ensure that the names mini, Pro and Max of each model will be maintained as before.
A predictable name for the iPhone 13
Long before the announcement of a new iPhone, the wheel of rumors begins to turn with its possible name. And these inevitably fall into two areas: keeping the current name with an “S” at the end or continuing with the next number. With the iPhone 13, the story was no different. The same sources that filter new features, functionality and production starts for iPhones now assure us that they also know the plans by their name. According to this Economic Daily News report, the supply chain already knows the name of the next iPhone:
This year’s new Apple iPhone has just entered its inventory countdown, and the supply chain has announced that th is year’s iPhone will be called the iPhone 13.
The report then turns to models, which they keep the current last names. So, in September we will have the iPhone 13 mini (despite the fact that the iPhone 12 mini is no longer manufactured), the iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max. He also assures us that Foxconn will be the one to take much of the model assembly orders, which is not particularly surprising.
The truth is, there aren’t many more options for choosing the name of the next iPhone. iPhone 12S, iPhone 13 and iPhone 2021 included these are almost the only three possibilities. That said, it’s hardly credible that Apple communicated the team name to its manufacturing partners so far in advance. Well, this is something that is controlled by the Cupertino marketing team and is not disclosed until almost at the end of the production process.
