Kuo: iPhone 13 to ditch 64GB option, Pro model to offer up to 1TB

Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is dropping last-minute leaks regarding the iPhone 13 lineup, stating that the upcoming devices are going to drop the storage option of 64GB.

In an investors note to TF International Securities, Kuo is stating that the regular iPhone 13 and the smaller 13 mini will have the starting storage option of 128GB, with 256GB, and 512GB as extra options, meaning that the 64GB option is no more.

The Apple analyst also says that the upcoming iPhones will be affected by supply chains due to COVID-19:

“We believe that iPhone’s current production challenge is the component shortage. Due to the component shortage, the legacy models had been cut by about 5–10% in 3Q21. The iPhone 13 shipment in 4Q21 may have a potential downside risk due to component shortage. However, this downside has a limited impact on iPhone 13 shipments. We believe that iPhone 13 shipments in 2021 can grow by more than 10% YoY.”

Regarding the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max, Kuo notes that all the mentioned options are available too, but there is one extra storage option to be exclusive to the pro models: 1TB of storage, a first time for an iPhone.
