We recap the new features we’re anticipating to see on Apple’s next batch of iPhones in September and discuss how Apple is betting massive on 5G with its billion-dollar acquisition of Intel’s modem business. We also break down the most recent rumors in regards to the next MacBook Pro, Apple Watch, and Apple’s mixed-reality headset.
It appears as if there is a fresh batch of rumors about the next iPhones every week and the fact that they’re all beginning to sound repetitive means their debut is likely getting close.
A report Mac this week paints an image of all the modifications (or lack thereof) we can anticipate within the iPhones. Citing people who’ve already seen the brand new phones, the report backs up most of what we already heard concerning the iPhones however provides a number of extra tidbits to the combo.
The 3 new iPhones, for instance, will look pretty just like the 2018 models and are rumored to have the identical screen size because of the previous iPhones (5.8-, 6.1- and 6.5-inch). They’ll also have the identical resolution and same screen technology (OLED on the XS and XS Max sequels and an LCD screen on the followup to the XR).
They will still have Face ID with the True Depth front camera, and the notch would be the same size. The one difference identified by 9to5mac is that Apple may get rid of 3D Touch and the front-facing camera on the 2019 iPhones can have slow-motion video recording. There was no mention on whether they’ll have in-screen fingerprint scanners as previous rumors suggested.
