IPhone 13 effect: the effects on Italian searches in the latest idealo statistics

IPhone 13 effect

The launch of the new iPhone 13 has generated a reference point for a new research by idealo, the important German price comparator who analyzed the data of the Italian portal, noting a huge growth in interest in the entire range of Apple products. . This, predictably, following the presentation and then the actual launch of the iPhone 13 series, here is our review of the luxurious Apple iPhone 13 Max, flanked as we know by the new Apple Watch and the new iPad.

The interest generated by the launch of a recall product is obvious, but in this case what is relevant is the extent of the increase in searches that peaked on September 24, the actual launch day of the iPhone 13, with an increase in dizzying purchase intentions. It is no coincidence that idealo speaks of an iPhone effect, evident in the 55.3% increase, between 14 and 11 October, in interest in the purchase of Apple products. Enough to push them, in searches, to the same level as Android products, more numerous and therefore usually more popular, which have instead suffered an inflection of -10.6%. Below is the graph of the data collected by idealo which shows the extent of the increase in interest in Apple products on the Italian portal of idealo.

The iPhone 13 ships to buyers and starts selling in stores on Friday, which means millions of people will get to use one of Apple’s four new iPhones this weekend. The new iPhones are almost identical to the iPhone 12 series. They feature the same design, and have exactly the same height and width. But the iPhone 13 handsets are all 0.25mm thicker than their predecessors. The camera module on the back has also increased in size, as Apple added various upgrades to the camera performance with iPhone 13. Buyers getting their hands on the iPhone 13 models will discover that the iPhone 12 cases they already own might not fit the new handsets. On top of that, a more serious issue might impact those buyers who purchased an iPhone 13 Pro version and own a particular type of MagSafe charger.

The iPhone 13 Pro camera upgrade

All the iPhone 13 design rumors we saw earlier this year turned out to be accurate when it comes to camera module design. The iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max feature larger camera modules on the back.

The cheaper iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini have a new camera arrangement, as Apple brought the sensor-shift optical image stabilization tech to all four iPhones. The sensor-shift OIS lens was exclusive to the iPhone 12 Pro Max last year.

As for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, they have larger sensors than their predecessors. The cameras also seem to be thicker. As a result, the cameras are larger and occupy more space on the back. The camera module is even wider and taller than on the cheaper iPhone 13 models.

The best proof of that is the internal battery design that Apple showed on stage during the event. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 have the same size. But they feature different internal configurations and different battery shapes and battery capacities. That’s because the iPhone 13 Pro cameras take up more space internally than before.

That’s why the current iPhone 12 case protectors won’t fit the new phones, especially the iPhone 13 Pro models. The camera modules require bigger cutouts than before.

MagSafe Duo charger doesn’t quite fit

How do these iPhone 13 Pro camera upgrades impact MagSafe charging? A buyer discovered that the camera module on the iPhone 13 Pro prevents the phone from connecting perfectly with Apple’s MagSafe Duo charger. That’s the wireless charger that works with both iPhones and Apple Watch models.

Spanish blog La Manzana Mordida reports that a reader bought the iPhone 13 Pro alongside an official leather case for the phone.

That’s when they discovered the MagSafe Duo compatibility problems, as seen above. It appears that the case might prevent the iPhone from connecting perfectly to the MagSafe magnets. The reader only had the accessory on hand, as the iPhone 13 Pro hadn’t shipped.

This sort of problem might not impact all iPhone 13 users. But those people who own MagSafe Duo chargers and bought similar protective cases might experience the same issue. Using a different type of MagSafe charger might fix the problem. The alternative is getting a non-MagSafe wireless charger, but that means accepting slower charging speeds.

The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini might not be impacted. Their camera modules aren’t as big as the Pro and Pro Max. However, that’s just speculation as buyers are yet to test current accessories with the iPhone 13 handsets.
