Less than a month separates us from the announcement of the next generation of iPhone. This year, Apple plans to return to the standard iPhone update schedule, which means that the presentation of the iPhone 13 family should take place approximately in the first half of September. And the new smartphones will go on sale in the second half of next month. Moreover, thanks to Chinese sources, we already know the exact date of the start of sales.
Chinese sources have received information from local online retailers about the date of the start of sales in the country of the new generation of iPhone. According to the information received, the launch of sales of the iPhone 13 series is scheduled for September 17th. Moreover, all four models, unlike last year, will go on sale at the same time. Given that China is usually among the countries of the first wave, then on September 17, sales of new iPhones will begin not only in the Middle Kingdom, but also in the United States, Australia, Europe and some other priority markets for Apple.
Also, a new leak confirmed the September announcement of the third generation of AirPods wireless headphones. The new accessory will be presented at the presentation along with the iPhone 13, and will go on sale a little later than smartphones. It will be available for purchase starting September 30th. And the start of sales, traditionally, will be preceded by a short period of receiving pre-orders.
Recall that last year Apple had to move away from the usual schedule and postpone the announcement of the iPhone 12 series to October. This was due to the worldwide coronavirus epidemic, which caused a number of production problems and delays.
