Rumors from recent months brought out a lot of contrasting information. Some analysts claimed that Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) scanners would only be available to iPhone 13 Pro models. Others also said that 1 TB storage capacity was a feature reserved for the incoming iPhone 12S.
While consistency does not automatically assure its credibility, Wedbush seemed certain that the LiDAR sensor is a staple feature for all iPhone 13 models. Since Apple plans to increase its sales by 15 percent more than iPhone 12 series, the iPhone 13 LiDAR sensor might be the key to its success.
