Wedbush via 9to5Mac’s Ben Lovejoy:

From a spec perspective, we have increased confidence that iPhone 13 will have a 1 terabyte storage option which is double from the highest Pro storage capacity today (512GB) and will also include a number of enhancements with Lidar across all iPhone 13 models.

We believe based on our recent Asia supply chain checks that iPhone 13 demand will be similar/slightly stronger than iPhone 12 out of the gates which speaks to our thesis that this elongated “supercycle” will continue for Cupertino well into 2022.

This positive outlook gives us enhanced confidence that 2021’s launch timing will be “normal.” From a timing perspective, we believe the current iPhone 13 launch is slated for the third week in September.

MacDailyNews Take: Currently, we’re using an average of 122 GB across our iPhone 12 Pro Max units, so 1 TB is still very much in the range of overkill for us for the foreseeable future. For those who use just their iPhone as their primary computing device, we could imagine a 1 TB option being very welcome.
