What will the next iPhone
Since the beginning of the year, Apple managed to hold spring and summer presentations at which new services of the company, operating systems and hardware innovations were announced – in particular, super-power and terribly expensive Mac Pro. Since mid-March, Apple has improved a number of other products: iPad Air, iPad mini, AirPods, iMac, MacBook Pro.
Traditionally, for the second half of the year, Apple leaves the loudest announcements: iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad Pro and, perhaps, something completely new.
Which iPhone will Apple show this time
Since 2017, Apple has presented three smartphones at the September presentation. This year, the company will almost certainly announce the iPhone XI, XI Max and XIR.
Insiders claim that the third generation of frameless Apple smartphones will keep the bangs. Perhaps it will decrease in size.
XI and XI Max models will receive Samsung OLED displays.
It is already known that Apple designers reworked the back panel of smartphones: they replaced ordinary glass with dull glass and the usual camera module with a square cutout on the case. Also, insiders suggest that the framework for older models of the line will be made of surgical steel, and for the younger version – of anodized aluminum.
New items will keep the dimensions of the current generation of smartphones, however, they may weigh a little more – due to hardware improvements.
The iPhone XI and XI Max models come in three colors: cosmic gray, silver and gold. The latter due to the frosted glass will be similar to the golden color of the case of the MacBook Air 2018 or the new iPad Air.
The most affordable of the new iPhone will come in lilac and green colors – instead of blue and coral in the iPhone XR.
What will be the filling of the iPhone 2019
The top models will receive three rear cameras manufactured by Sony: regular, telephoto and ultra-wide. One of the cameras can be used for additional depth analysis in the frame, probably using Time-Of-Flight technology for augmented reality. The successor to the iPhone XR will receive two cameras: regular and telephoto. The resolution of the lenses will be from 12 to 16 megapixels. No major changes are expected in the front camera this year.
According to rumors, Apple may opt out of using 3D-Touch technology in favor of increasing the display refresh rate to 120 Hz, as in the iPad Pro. The X, XS and XS Max models are already equipped with displays with a touch sensor reading frequency of 120 Hz, and the company has implemented the 3D-Touch function at the software level in iOS 13.
In the beta version of iOS 13 recovery screen, instead of Lightning-cable shows the Type-C. This means that the iPhone 2019 can go to these connectors from Lightning. At the same time, it is unlikely that Apple will sell new smartphones with an 18-watt power adapter. Most likely, the company will change only the bundled cable with Lightning / USB-A to USB-C / USB-A and the EarPods headphone connector, if they are not completely abandoned in favor of AirPods.
All three devices will work on a 7-nanometer Apple A13 processor, it is expected that its performance will be 40-60% higher than the A12 Bionic.
Following the trends of 2018/19, Apple can place two-way wireless charging for AirPods of the second generation in the case and, perhaps, Apple Watch Series 5. Most likely, the company will have to make a frosted glass back panel precisely because other devices can scratch the case with two-way charging.
When will show the new iPhone
The next Apple presentation can take place on September 10 at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park. Some of the announced iPhones will be on sale on September 27, and others on October 25. It is expected that neither the amount of internal memory, nor the price this year will not change: iPhone XIR will cost from $ 749, XI – from $ 999, XI Max – from $ 1099.
