We Have the Moniker for Apple’s 2021 Smartphone Flagship

Everyone knows that Apple will release its next smartphone flagship this year, and while the most plausible moniker will be “iPhone 13”, other people raised different possibilities for how the gadget will be called. The age-old superstition that the number 13 brings bad luck also contributed to speculations that Apple will choose a different moniker for its upcoming lineup of iPhones.

Thanks to a new article from 9to5Mac.com, we have a definitive answer for how Apple will be calling the 2021 iPhones. As most of us expected, the new lineup will indeed be called iPhone 13. It’s nice to see that the guys from Apple don’t believe in primitive superstitions, and neither are they affected by such nonsense.

Grab an iPhone 13 starting this September!

If everything goes according to the plan and there won’t be another pandemic, an alien invasion, or anything else of such magnitude, Apple will launch the iPhone 13 lineup in September. The news of the confirmation of the upcoming iPhone’s moniker comes from a new supply-chain report, to be more precise. An official statement says it loud and clear, as quoted by 9toMac.com:

Apple’s new iPhone this year has entered the countdown stage of stocking, and the supply chain has reported that this year’s new phone will be named iPhone 13.

We can only expect that iPhone 13 will surpass its predecessor in terms of specifications, and that implies that Apple will have a lot of work to do in the area. iPhone 12 was equipped with the fastest processor that Apple ever created (A14 Bionic), and it will be exciting to see what surprises does the Cupertino-based giant has for its fans.

Of course that ultimately, you are free to call the upcoming iPhone as you want: iPhone 13, iPhone 12S, or even “my reason to skip work”.
