Last year when Apple refreshed the iPad Pro, one of the new hardware features they introduced was LiDAR. Apple later brought it over to the iPhone 12, except that only the higher-end iPhone 12 models had the technology. For those who are shopping on a slightly tighter budget, you might be interested to learn that all the iPhone 13 models could come with the tech.
This is according to Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives who in an investors note suggested that all iPhone 13 models will be coming with LiDAR technology. For those unfamiliar, LiDAR is what helps the iPhone and iPad gain better depth perception, which in turn can help with other technologies such as augmented reality and also photography.
Apple usually tries to keep its iPhones the same across the board in terms of hardware, although in some cases, newer hardware features are limited to the higher-end models before they eventually make their way to the entire lineup. In addition to LiDAR, Ives also claims that the iPhone 13 could finally hit the 1TB storage mark.
As it stands, the iPhone maxes out at 512GB of storage, but Ives believes that this could change with the iPhone 13. We’d hate to think of how much a 1TB iPhone configuration could cost, but at least the option is there for those who might need it.
