Apple is set to host its iPhone 13 launch event today, which kicks off tonight. Users in India will be able to watch the Apple event at 10:30 p.m. At the event, the company is expected to announce several products, but the iPhone 13 will likely be the star of the show. Apple may launch four iPhone models, including the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Read on to find out more about it.
IPhone 13 release date
At this time, there is no confirmation of the release date of the iPhone 13 series in India. Based on last year’s release, the iPhone 13 series could be available by the end of this month. The iPhone 12 series launched on October 14, and the devices went on sale on October 30.
Apple may also delay the release of the iPhone 13 series in India. Due to a chip shortage, the company may first launch the 2021 iPhones in certain markets, according to reports. Manufacturing and supply challenges from the pandemic have reportedly caused chip shortages, which is why brands like Reliance Jio are also delaying the launch of their new phone.
Apple iPhone 13: Price expected in India
A known tipster Max Weinbach only recently suggested that the iPhone 13 lineup will not experience a price hike. This suggests that the new iPhones could be available in the same price range as the iPhone 12 series. But in India we generally see the prices increase for all new iPhones. As a reminder, the iPhone 12 was launched in India with a starting price of Rs 79,900, while the iPhone 12 Pro was made available for Rs 1,900. The iPhone 12 Pro Max was introduced with a starting price of Rs 1,29,900.
Leaks claim that Apple will likely offer the iPhone 13 at a price that is acceptable to the majority of people interested in purchasing the new iPhones. However, several reports also claim that the new iPhones could be available at a much higher price as the cost of chipsets has increased due to the shortage of raw materials and labor due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
A few weeks ago a report from the Wall Street newspaper said TSMC, which is the world’s largest contract chip maker, plans to increase the prices of its most advanced chips “by about 10 percent” and that Apple is using TSMC for its phone chipsets. So, if the Cupertino giant decides to pass the price hikes on to its customers, then the 2021 iPhones could be more expensive than ever. It will be interesting to see how Apple will price its latest products.
Apple iPhone 13 series: Online availability
Apple’s latest iPhone 13 series will be available for purchase through Flipkart and Amazon, as both ecommerce sites have posted a dedicated Apple event page on their platforms. The page also includes a “Notify Me” button for the Apple event. All of this confirms that the latest series of iPhone 13 and other Apple devices will be on sale through these online platforms. The devices will likely also be available in certain Apple-authorized offline stores.
