Apple is expected to launch the new iPhone 13 series sometime in September this year. However, the exact launch date is yet to be confirmed by the company. Now, ahead of any announcements, the series’ launch timeline has been allegedly revealed.
According to IT Home, the iPhone 13 series is already listed on an e-commerce website in China. The listing’s screenshot was first shared on Weibo by Chinese leaker @Pandalsbald. Not just the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro, rather the entire series including the vanilla smartphone, the Pro model, the Pro max model, and the mini variants were listed. Even the rumored Apple AirPods 3 was found listed on the portal.
Additionally, the publication revealed that the series will go on pre-orders from September 17th. It is said to go on sale starting September 24th in the market. While the launch date, as well as the sale date, is revealed, we aren’t sure if the dates are legit. Previously, the Chinese publication was subject to incorrect launch dates. However, this time around, the tipster Jon Prosser confirmed that the listed date is real and indeed the launch timeline is correct.
If we are to go by the said launch date then Apple is expected to send invites by September 7th. This is how the entire launch timeline would look like.
