UPDATE: 11TH SEP 2019 – THE NEW IPHONES ARE HERE!
UPDATE: 30TH AUGUST 2019
Apple just sent out official media invites via mail and this is what it looks like. Long-time Apple fans will recall a similar set of color options for the old Mac PCs. So could this Apple logo be a hint that the new iPhones might come with fresh new colors? Take a guess & stay tuned to see more interesting stuff show up as we approach the launch date.
After recently releasing a closed iOS 13 beta 7 update, Apple supposedly sent media invites for a September 10 event. This event will be held at the Steve Jobs Auditorium in Cupertino from 9 AM. Here’s everything we know about the new iPhone(s)
As speculated and leaked and rumored an infinite number of times before, at least one of the more-than-one phones releasing on Sep 10th shall house a triple-camera setup at the rear, and that is exactly what Apple is flaunting in the (supposed) press-invites (see image above). Apart from that, Apple is believed to launch not one, not two, but three new iPhones this year, the third iteration carrying a ‘Pro’ tag. That should mean an iPhone 11, an iPhone 11 Pro, and an iPhone 11 Max. We can believe in this leak as this tip comes from the person who correctly leaked the iPhone XS last year. Our guess is, Apple shall be trying to cover a wider budget threshold with three models.
However, nothing is official at the moment other than the fact that Apple is organizing an event on the 10th of September. Rumors are hot that the bigger iPhone (which will be a successor to the iPhone XS Max) only shall flaunt the triple-camera setup with a regular-telephoto-wide angle arrangement. The regular iPhone 11 is rumored to have a 6.1″ 60Hz OLED displays (could also be 90Hz), slightly taller than the XS. It is also rumored that the new iPhones shall have reverse-wireless charging, meaning users should be able to charge other devices (that can charge wirelessly) with the iPhone 11. This shall also include apple accessories like the AirPods. Also, the new iPhones are said to have a new multi-angle Face-ID sensor and an all-new Taptic Engine.
Some more less-believable sort-of rumors include Apple dropping the lighting connector in favor of USB-C this year (please, do this Apple) and including a USB-C to lightning adapter in the retail box. On the design front, the new iPhones will also supposedly take fresh paint with some matte color & gradient finishes. It is also rumored that the 2019 iPhones shall have support for the Apple Pencil, which many users were, in fact, asking for.
Interestingly, the launch date for this event had been silently slipped as an easter-egg inside a developer build of iOS 13. They did the same for last year’s event with iOS 12. The iPhones all believed to go on pre-orders from 13th September, and available for purchase from the 20th. Apple is also believed to be launching a refresh to the Apple Watch and a redesigned MacBook Pro 16″ alongside the new iPhones.
We shall keep updating this article as we know more.
