This is an increase over the iPhone12, a phone that managed to dominate the 5G market, although it launched later and at a higher price than its Android competitors. Ives predicts that a big driver of this growth will come from iPhone owners who have stuck to their smartphones for the past few years.
As mentioned earlier, Ives says the iPhone 13 launch will likely happen in the third week of September. This fits in with iPhone event data for the past few years, with the notable exception of 2020 which was delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
