SAN RAMON, Calif. (AP) – SAN RAMON, Calif. (AP) – Apple unveiled its next iPhone line-up, including a model that offer twice the maximum storage and other modest upgrades to last year’s editions that proved to be a big hit among consumers devouring the latest technology during the pandemic.

The pre-recorded video event streamed Tuesday gave Apple a chance to present a polished story following a turbulent few weeks that included a backlash to its plans to scan iPhones and a mixed ruling in a trial targeting its iPhone app store.

Like last year’s model, the new iPhone 13 will come in four different designs, with prices starting in a range from $700 to $1,100.
