iPhone 13 Pro could include the most storage yet on an Apple phone

Apple is only a day away from the launch of the highly anticipated iPhone 13, with reports continuing to drop about all of the goodies that the new handset might offer.

If you find the storage always filling up super-fast on your current iPhone, then the latest tidbit from reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo should be of interest.

In an investor report released at the weekend and first seen by 9to5Mac, Kuo suggests the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will launch with the most storage ever offered on an Apple smartphone: 1TB. To put it another way, that’s 1,000GB or 996GB more than the lowest option offered with the original iPhone in 2007. Yes, it’s a lot of storage.

It means that even if you’re an avid videographer and/or photographer who also likes to download movies, TV shows, music, and podcasts rather than stream content from the cloud, you’ll probably still never fill it up. But that’s the idea, right?

According to Kuo, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini will offer storage options of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB, with Apple eliminating the 64GB option that came with the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini while adding a new 512GB option.

The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, on the other hand, will likely offer 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage options. This would be identical to the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, except for the addition of the new 1TB option.

It’s not the first time we’ve heard that the iPhone 13 will include a 1TB option, but Kuo’s input so close to the launch date offers the clearest indication yet that it’s really going to happen.

In his report, Kuo also pointed out that the iPhone 13 could be hit by the same component shortages affecting many tech firms at the current time, though he seemed to suggest the issue would probably affect shipments of legacy iPhone models more than the iPhone 13.

iPhone Flip: what we know about Apple’s first foldable phone
Folding iPhone concept from iOS Beta News.

In the past few years, Samsung has become one of the leading manufacturers of foldable devices, including the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5. Though it's not the only brand making foldable devices, it offers the most mainstream and available options, especially in the U.S. That leads to the question of whether Apple will follow suit with a foldable iPhone — or even an iPad.

There have been long-standing rumors that Apple could be working on such a device, including a foldable iPhone, which we'll call "iPhone Flip" for now. Apple's a secretive company, so there may very well be at least some research and development taking place on such a device. But, of course, this continues to just be all speculation for now. From the latest news, rumors, and reports, here's everything we know so far about Apple's folding iPhone.
