That's still Apple. Despitethe company achieved $ 37 billion last year by selling nearly 50 million phones . The iPhone remains . Therefore, we can not expect the possibility that Apple will surprise us this autumn with revolutionary features or distinctive aesthetics.
In the meantime, there is no shortage of analysts, experts and delicacies who value these features and aesthetics. And a miniature scandal has already blown the rumor mill of iPhone 11. On January 10, prominent Leaker Ben Geskin tweeted his personal wish list for the next-generation iPhone, which included a ProMotion display, a triple camera array, a 4,000 mAh battery, and a wireless recharge. The tweet transmitted through the Internet became the source of a handful of articles about potential specifications for the upcoming iPhone 11. Finally, the misunderstanding was dispelled, corrections made and we went back to the dark, mostly empty abyss of facts about the next iPhone.
Yes, for now, details are scarce. However, we count the months until Apple introduces us to the next iPhones and collect the most interesting rumors here. Look often.
Rumor: Deja vu again, three new iPhones are expected in September 2019
Apple plans to stick to the script of recent years and introduce three new iPhone models this autumn, according to the Wall Street Journal. We expect the new models to generally follow the current generation format: a "budget" successor to the iPhone XR, a mid-range flagship that follows in the footsteps of the iPhone XS, and an oversized model like the iPhone XS Max.
Despite the buzz aroundthere is no reason to believe that Apple will disrupt its tradition of announcing new cell phones in September. Last Thursday, September 13, the company introduced three new phones and released the first two, the iPhone XS and XS Max, on Friday, September 21st. The iPhone XR was shipped about a month later, on October 26th. We expect the timing to be similar again this year – although there is a possibility that new features may delay the announcement or release time as Face ID 2017 allegedly did.
And how will Apple call this next batch? Phones? As my colleague Jessica Dolcourt has pointed out, Apple may have buried itself in a hole with the current harvest. There is no obvious continuation of the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR. So far, most of the reports we've seen use the nomenclature for iPhone 11 or iPhone XI.
Probably: The iPhone 2019 will not support 5G.

During the process, an Apple supply chain executive reported that the company had considered using modems manufactured by MediaTek and Samsung for the iPhones, which will be available in 2019, Reuters reports. However, the executive did not announce whether Apple had opted for a 5G fashion provider or would actually launch a 5G iPhone this year.
Rumor: Three rear-facing cameras on the iPhone 2019
Cameras have always been a major topic in iPhone rumors, and the early consensus suggests that one or more of this year's phones will have three rear-facing lenses. Bloomberg has just published an article suggesting that at least one of the 2019 iPhones will have three cameras on the back. (The article also suggests that a subsequent iOS update doubles the length of Live Photos to six seconds.]
Bloomberg's coverage follows an earlier Twitter user leak Ice Universe, who posted a render of what is supposed to be a prototype of the new array, consisting of three triangular cameras and a flash housed in a large, square module. (Ice Universe later tweeted that such a camera design is a " irreversible reality ".)
An article published by OnLeaks and the Indian website CompareRaja postulates an alternative theory. However, the iPhone 11 will have three 10 and 14 megapixel cameras, with two of the lenses and the flash arranged around a central lens. As shown in the illustrations, it looks a bit like the camera on the back of the [Mateo Pro 20]

A statement by seasoned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo saysas reported by 9to5Mac. This means you can use your iPhone's battery to charge other devices. Even if true, Apple will be catching up with Samsung, whose latest Galaxy S10 phones will be able to charge other devices – including Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Watch Active – from the company via the wireless Qi standard.
In addition, Kuo predicted that all new iPhones in 2019 will have larger batteries – and probably better battery life. And that's what I mean: in our video dump test for video playback, the iPhone XR lasted more than 19 hours and the iPhone XS Max 17 hours (23 minutes), while the iPhone XS only lasted 13 hours (30 minutes). remained alive.
Rumor: New Representations of iOS 13 in Dark Mode
With a lack of official news and even credible leaks, we need to go through the renderings – the power of imaginative minds with advanced Photoshop capabilities. At the moment, the rounds are making mock photos that show what iOS 13 – that's what Apple will call the next version of its mobile operating system – looks like on the upcoming iPhone 11 like in "dark mode".

Rumor: iPhone goes to USB-C in 2019
One of the longest-running iPhone Rumors concern Apple, which makes the leap to USB-C, but this year is more dynamic behind the noise as the company updates its proprietary Lightning connector with USB-Cand .
Bloomberg now says Apple is testing USB-C on some prototype iPhones after Mac Otakara had previously reported that the company would consider the model The video released by ConceptsiPhone shows what an iPhone with a USB-C port could look like.
Steve Hemmerstoffer, who runs the Twitter account OnLeaks says there ss the iPhone prototype 2019, he has seen, has a Lightning port for charging – according to CompareRaja.com no USB-C connection.
Rumor: Apple sticks with LCD and OLED mix
Among the three phones released by Apple in 2018, only the iPhone XR has an LCD screen. The two high-end models iPhone XS and XS Max both use OLED panels, which have higher resolutions and produce more vivid colors and images.
Although Apple may introduce OLED technology into its entire phone portfolio this year – the more expensive panel is being introduced in addition to the XR's episodes in addition to the XS and XS Max sequels – more likely in 2020, according to Wall Street Journal. (So far we've heard exactly zero credible rumors about plans for a foldable iPhone.)
Rumor: Apple updates Face ID
According to Bloomberg's report, Apple's upcoming 3D camera – which may not be included in any 2019 phone – will feature an updated version of Face ID that extends the reach of the technology, improves security, and enables new AR capabilities.
Earlier, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via MacRumors) predicted a much more modest update for Face ID in 2019 – the addition of a new "floodlight" for all upcoming iPhones that will attenuate the ambient light and improve face ID performance In other words, the next version of Face ID may include a brighter light that will allow the phone to recognize you faster and more accurately, with more dramatic advances beginning in 2020 and beyond.

Rumor: iPhone apps coming to the Mac (and vice versa)
In addition to the idea of a new version of its A-series chips for the next iPhone, Apple plans to plan a major processor change for its computer. As of 2020, the company will no longer use Intel chips on its Macs for custom ARM-based processors.– which will begin sometime in 2021 – that Bloomberg and Axios will use on Apple's various operating systems on the iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
Rumor: iPhone Prices Will Rise Again in 2019
When Apple announced a $ 1,000 price tag for thein 2017, critics complained. However, the customers did not seem to care, and the phone for weeks afterwards.
Apple has noted this, and the iPhone XS and XS Max have raised prices even further, starting at $ 999 and $ 1,099, respectively. The analysis of my colleague Jessica Dolcourton the premium smartphone market, and we expect Apple, Samsung – it costs almost $ 2,000 – and others to push the limits of customer budgets for the foreseeable future.
