Last year, Apple released three iPhones, iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max. Apple is known to release a new range of iPhones every September, and 2019 won’t be any different.

Rumours about the 2019 iPhones began before iPhone XR and iPhone XS were announced. With rumours of iPhone 11 being released this year, here’s everything you need to know about the design, specs, features, release date, and more.

Design

The 2019 iPhone design rumours suggest that the back will have a camera bump in the rear top corner. Predictions state that the phone will have a single piece of glass, and will feature a flash unit and several camera lenses. The multi-sensor camera setup is something you’ll find in the Huawei P30 Pro and Galaxy S10.

In terms of screen technology, reports suggest that Apple will stick to the 5.8 and 6.5-inch screen sizes like in the XS and XS Max. The iPhone 11 is likely to stick to OLED technology, rather than the LCD.

Specs

The iPhone 11 will be the first to run on iOS 13. According to the Wall Street Journal, the 2019 line-up will feature three models, with one LCD variant and two OLED. The XR successor will have a dual-camera system.

Rumours also suggest that the 2019 iPhone will have something similar to Samsung’s Powershare. That means that the iPhone can wirelessly charge AirPods or the Apple Watch. While the screen size will remain the same, this may change in 2020, where the company will introduce new screen sizes.

Performance

Apple works with Taiwan Semiconductor to supply processors for its iPhones. There are rumours that the new iPhone will have an A13 Bionic Chip, which could mean better graphics performance and excellent processing power.

Price

Although there are no reports on the official price of the new iPhone, chances are it will be something similar to last year’s models. We expect the price to start at $1,000, and go up for a larger screen and extra storage. Storage could start at 64GB, with additional options for 256 GB and 512GB.

The new iPhone 11 may look similar to the current models. However, this may change in 2020 as Apple plans to introduce frosted glass casing and 5G support.
