With around six months to go until the launch of the iPhone 13, pundits have a decent general idea of what we can expect, but the details remain sketchy. We don't even know, for example, which month the new phones will launch in - although one analyst has now put his head above the parapet and made a prediction.

According to a new report from Dan Ives, quoted by MacRumors, this autumn's models of iPhone will probably go on sale at the end of September.

Apple habitually launches new iPhone models in September, but last year's iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro were released on 23 October, while the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max were delayed until 13 November.

Of course, there is a risk of delays this year as well, especially as the ongoing pandemic has led to a component shortage. But Ives reckons there will be a few weeks of delay at the most.
