“We’re fast approaching the launch of the iPhone 13, a phone that will almost certainly land in September, likely alongside some other products such as the Apple Watch 7. Unsurprisingly we’ve heard a lot about these devices already, but the leaks just won’t stop coming.”
Now Mark Gurman (a Bloomberg writer with an excellent track record for Apple information) has in his Power On newsletter revealed some likely specs and features of these upcoming devices.In many cases he’s reiterating things that he’s said before, but there is some new stuff here, including a claim that the Apple Watch 7 will come with a new Time to Run feature. This will presumably be similar to the podcast-like Time to Walk feature already found on the Apple Watch, but aimed at runners, and it will apparently be joined by audio meditations.

As for the iPhone 13, here Gurman reiterates claims that the range will stick to the same screen sizes as the iPhone 12 did, that it will include a new A15 chipset, a 120Hz refresh rate on the Pro models, and possibly an always-on display.
Analysis: late 2021 is Apple’s to own
While most of this information isn’t new, it does line up with what we’ve heard before, so there’s a good chance it’s accurate, and if all of these devices land this year as they’re rumored to then Apple could have almost no new competition in the final few months of 2021.
