Prior to iPhone release X S and iPhone X S Max, rumors had already begun churning if the next smartphone series Apple has to offer. With months gone by since the 2018 flagship, the users hit the iPhone rumors 2019 full steam ahead, which gives us a pretty clear idea of what can be expected when the next fall comes.
Many rumors from last year's iPhone X S and X S Max has become true, for example, the new naming convention, the exact sizes, dual-SIM functionality, an upgraded processor, OLED display technology, an IP68 dust and water resistance rating and a TrueDepth face ID camera for both models.
Rumors of the 2018 series that never came true included Apple Pencil support, shared screen on Max (it ended up being split box for just a few layer apps) and a USB type C power adapter with USB-C lighting. cable in the box. It was definitely more true rumors than false, and it is likely that the same thing will happen to the iPhone 2019 models. But what rumors will be the true ones?
Number of models
Like last year, it is certain that there will be three different iPhone models to buy at the end of 2019. All three units will become successors to the current range, according to the famous analyst Ming -Chi Kuo and other sources. We will only discuss successors to iPhone X S and X S Max in this article, however, not the newer iPhone X R Upgrade.
The new names
t any leaks or rumors from any analyst, it's almost safe that the new 2019 iPhone models will take off, where their predecessors ended. That means we're watching an iPhone XI and iPhone XI Max, pronounced as the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max.
It is still too early to have a good idea of when the new iPhone models will be announced and released, as leaked dates usually do not tend to be transmitted in a few weeks in advance.
But based on Apple's history, it is likely that the 2019-iPhone models will be announced in early September with a late-September release. Last year, iPhone X S and X S saw the time frame with a sept. 12 announcements, preorders on September 15 and a release on September 21. The former Plus and regular models had very similar timeframes since then Plus format models were one thing.
- Notice date: beginning of September 2019
- Pre-order date: mid-September 2019
- Release date: at the end of September 2019
There are no surefire Rumors than in storage sizes, but it's likely to come with last year's devices, with 64 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB for the two iPhone XI models. As with all iPhones, there will be no extensible storage options.
- Storage space: likely 64 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB
- Expandable storage: no
No prices are rumored, but they may cease to be very similar to last year's units . AppleCare + will also be an option, with the same monthly payments and fully paid plans at $ 199 for the base offering and $ 299 for the one including theft and loss protection. Monthly plans are also available, but they will end up costing you more in the long run.
- Price: currently unknown
- AppleCare +: $ 199 or $ 299 (or $ 999 or $ 14.99 monthly)  Buy the new iPhone X S : Amazon | Apple | Best Buy | Walmart | Other stores
Nothing has leaked compared to the overall frame and finish. The former will probably be very similar to iPhone X S and X S Max models, with glass on both sides (to maintain wireless charging) and a rounded "metallurgical" stainless steel "surgical grade" frame. It has been chatting if the frame is rounded like the 3rd Gen iPad Pro models, but we don't expect it to happen.
The final colors can be the same, with space gray, silver, and gold options, but Apple usually changes at least one color during releases, so you never know.
- Frame: Probably stainless steel
- Finish: Unknown colors
With Apple's constant environmental message, we expect the new iPhone XI and XI Max to be free of mercury, arsenic, brominated flame retardants, PVC and beryllium. It is likely to have a carbon dioxide process and includes a recyclable stainless steel frame. It's a start for environmental friendliness, but Apple must also win the green audience by revealing where materials come from and how they are recycled.
There are no definite leaks than for dimensions, weight and supported carriers, but if history has any guidance for us, they will probably be exactly the same for iPhone XI and XI Max as for iPhone X S and X S Max.
For dust and water resistance, Ming-Chi Kuo expects Apple to retain the IP68 value. So these models will be dustproof and can be immersed in water up to 2 meters for 30 minutes. And like the majority of smartphones, all major mobile network operators will receive support.
- Height: Probably 5.65 inches (XI) and 6.2 inches (XI Max)
- Width: likely 2.79 inches XI) and 3.05 inches (XI Max) [Depth: Probably 0.30 inch (XI) and 0.30 inch (XI Max) Weight: currently unknown
- Dust / water resistance: ] IP68 according to IEC standard 60529
- Mobile network operators: AT & T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon
For the environmental use requirements, there is no reason to believe that Apple will change anything.
- Operating temperature: 32 ° to 95 ° F
- Not operating temperature: -4 ° to 113 ° F
- Relative humidity: 5-95% non condensation
- Operating height: up to 10,000 feet (but may be more)
Apple is expected to keep the same image sizes from iPhone X S and X S Max for the newer iPhone XI and XI Max models, so that means we get a 5.8 inch and 6.5 inch display, respectively. Resolution and pixel density may be the same as last year's models, as well as a 19.5: 9 aspect ratio, but it is too early to say for sure.
These screens will also be the same OLED technology from previous models, but rumors suspect we may have even thinner fittings this time around. However, there are still no details on how much thinner they will be, so there is nothing to talk about how the body-body relationship will be.
Thin frames also allow for a smaller chopping. With rich improvements for the TrueDepth camera and the speaker grille moving up, the odds of a slightly smaller score are higher.
Almost all iPhone models I can imagine had 2 nits minimum brightness and 625 nits maximum display brightness, and there is no reason to believe that it will change on the iPhone XI and XI Max. But rumors speculate that Apple will finally move up from a 60 Hz screen refresh rate to either 90 or 120 Hz, making it even more competitive for the best gaming phone.
The color temperature varies from iPhone to iPhone, so this is Someone guesses until a substantial leak happens. This specification is not usually part of a leak, historically, so we will not know it until people happen to the units in September 2019.
One of the biggest changes on the display rumored to happen is the loss of the 3D Touch. Apple already drew 3D Touch in favor of Haptic Touch on iPhone X R but it was for an LCD panel. Haptic Touch is nowhere ready to replace 3D Touch at this time, and another technology might replace 3D Touch in OLED screens. But almost every leak for the 2019 series is betting on no 3D Touch – we hope this is not the case.
- Screen size: Probably 5.8 inches and 6.5 inches
- Screen resolution: currently unknown
- Pixel density: currently unknown
- Screen type: OLED, Super Retina HD
- Notch: yes
- Image to body ratio: Unknown
- Aspect ratio: likely 19.5: 9
- Minimum brightness: likely 2 nits  Maximum Brightness: Probably 625 Nits
- Update Rate: 90-120 Hz (120 Hz for Touch Detection)
- Color Temperature: currently unknown
- 3D Touch: for Currently unknown
It is not very well known at the moment for the iPhone XI and XI Max performance statistics except that Apple will have improved AR13 chips over the 2018's Bionic A12 models. Apple is unlikely to go under last year's 4 GB or RAM either. But if Max will get three lenses on the back and an upgrade time (see details below), maybe there might be more memory, such as 6 GB.
- Memory: at least 4 GB of RAM
- Processor: Apple A13
- Chip size: currently unknown
- Coprocessor: currently unknown
- CPU frequency: currently unknown
- CPU cores currently unknown
- GPU: Apple-designed (unknown model)
- GPU cores: currently unknown
Batteries in iPhones are never as big as in previous models, and regular and Max versions never have the same capacity. The iPhone XI Max will not tell what the capacity will be for the iPhone XI, but if you believe in rumors, the iPhone XI Max comes with a 4000 mAh battery – 826 mAh more than the iPhone X S ] Max.
From now on, all wireless charging iPhone models are maximum at 7.5 watts, but there are claims that both XI models support 15 watts instead, which is quite possible because the Qi technology supports it. It is also possible that this does not happen to keep the temperature down in the body, but we hope Apple finds a solution to that problem. Anyway, it will work with all Qi-certified charge cushions and maybe we'll finally see Apple's AirPower charging station.
For wired charging, there are various rumors that the 2019 iPhone models will finally get USB type C ports instead of Lightning, like the 3rd Gen iPad Pro models. It also means that Apple will include a USB-C power adapter with iPhones for fast charging, so you may not have to buy a flash for USB-C cable and wall adapter anymore to increase the charging speed.
- Battery: rechargeable lithium ion
- Capacity: currently unknown
- Wireless charging: 15 watt
- Wired charger: USB Type-C
Front camera  There will be improvements Facial ID (see section "Security" below), but in the case of pictures and videos there is no details except that the possibility of a 10 megapixel player instead of the 7 MP as iPhone X ] S models had. Image stabilization is likely to be software-based, but it can also be optical as well. No zoom or RAW support, as well as a screen slot, will most likely return on these models, but there may also be improvements here as well.
Flash: Currently unknown
Image stabilization: Image stabilization: ] currently unknown
RAW support: en
Object detection: Back camera (Photos)
Rumors speculate that the usual iPhone XI will maintain the setting for two lenses, but the gambler this year for iPhone XI Max will be a triple line camera. Two different XI Max renders made by Leaker Steve Hemmerstof, aka @OnLeaks show two very different looks for the camera's layout, one square at the top left with the lenses in a triangle and one on iPhone X S models in the top center but with the lenses aligned horizontally.
Either reproduction is possible, as Apple still receives feedback on the design, but the main concept will be three camera lenses. Rumors suggest that the extra third camera turns the optical zoom up to three times, compared to twice on the dual rear iPhone and iPhone XI. The setting is likely to be a telephoto lens, wide-angle lens and super wide-angle lens. Having three lenses is likely to improve photography under low light.
With three lenses, there is also the possibility that Apple will make the system a time-of-flight ( ToF) camera for some serious depth sensing that is perfect for enhanced reality, 3D maps and object tracking. Rumors suggest that chips could be made by Sony. Ming-Chi Kuo believes, however, that there is no three-lens system with ToF capability as it does little to improve photography and meet Apple's goals for AR superiority. So there still seems to be a debate about the problem.
There will likely be a jump in resolution from 12 MP lenses on previous devices to 14 MP, but rumors suggest that a lens will only be 10 MP while the other is 14 MP. For the iPhone XI Max, it is not yet speculated on the resolution of the possible third lens.
- Resolution: 14 MP and 10 MP (third for XI Max unknown currently)
- Aperture: currently unknown
- Zoom: 3x optical (digital unknown at present)  Flash: Square LED true flash with slow synchronization
- Image stabilization: optical, both lenses
- RAW support: yes
- Lens protection: Sapphire glass
- Object protection : Bodies, Faces
- Formats: HEIF, JPEG, RAW
Most of the video recording specifications with the rear camera will remain the same, but we can see some changes here and there. Now anticipate that it is similar to the specifications of the iPhone X S and X S Max:
- Resolution: 720p, 1080p and 4K
- Max frame rate: 30 fps for 720p, 60 fps for 1080p and 4K
- Slow motion: yes, 1080p at 120 or 240 fps
- Time lapse: Yes, with stabilization
- Photos: 8 MP still images during recording 4K
- Zoom: 2x optical, 6x digital
- Flash: Quad LED True Tone Flash
- ] Image stabilization: optical
- ] Lens protection: Sapphire glass
- Object detection: Bodies, faces
- Sound: Stereo sound
- Formats: H. 264, H.65 (HEVC)
No new audio functionality changes expected to change from iPhone X S and X X ] S Max models, so there will not be a 3.5 mm
- 3.5 mm headphone jack: no
- Stereo speaker: yes
- Mics: three in total (19459028) on the rear, front and bottom)
- Maximum speaker volume: unknown
The usual sensors will be on board the 2019 iPhone models, but it is possible that may be another sensor or two. It is also possible that one of the below stated will be nixed if a newer sensor can perform its duty.
- Sensors: aGPS, barometer, accelerometer, treaxels gyroscope, proximity sensor, magnetometer, barometer, digital compass, step meter
As we mentioned earlier we can see a USB Type -C port on iPhone XI and XI Max instead of Apple's own Lightning port. Aside from that, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC will be included, and there are dual SIM features for a Nano SIM card and eSIM.
A big change is the rich jump from Wi-Fi 5 to Wi-Fi 6, which will give you higher speeds and better performance in tight areas and will probably also result in less battery consumption. But not all hardware is Wi-Fi 6 compatible yet, so even if the new 2019 models come with Wi-Fi 6, you may not be able to use it anywhere you go.
It is not yet known which antennas will be used for Wi-Fi and cellular connections. There are also rumors that the next iPhone will be 5G capable, but those rumors are pretty thin at this time, with most pointing towards the 2020 series.
Last year, it was speculated that iPhone X S Max would at least get Apple Pencil support, but it never happened. Rumors are back for Apple Pencil support on the iPhone XI Max, but no word on the smaller XI model.
- Wi-Fi: 802.11ax
- Bluetooth: 5.0
- NFC: Yes
- Cellular: dual Nano-SIM card slot, Gigabit class LTE  Port: Lightning
- Other: iBeacon microlocation, AirPlay, AirDrop
- Apple Pencil: possible
Both iPhone XI and XI Max will contain Face ID for face recognition, thanks to the TrueDepth camera. The accuracy of Face ID can also be improved with the rumored flood illumination improvement, according to Ming-Chi Kuo. The new flood light filters out invisible light from the surroundings so that a better face scan can happen.
Face ID will still have one-in-a-million chance someone could break into your iPhone (minus twins). And it is used for Apple Pay online purchases and in stores that use either a connected card or your Apple Pay Cash balance.
There is still a USB-limited mode, which prevents unwanted devices from connecting and stealing data via a wired connection. When iPhone is connected to a computer, the password (not facial ID) is required to access.
- Security: Limited Face ID and USB Mode
This is a no-brainer, but iPhone XI and XI Max will be sent with iOS 13 installed.
- Software: iOS 13 and higher
The supported features will include FaceTime video calls with either Wi-Fi or cellular, FaceTime audio, voice over LTE (VoLTE), Wi-Fi calls, and full Siri -Support. Many language options will be available for the system, QuickType keyboard, Siri, dictation, dictionaries, and spell checking.
We can assume that audio support will be the same as previous models with playback of AAC-LC, HE-AAC, HE-AAC v2, Protected AAC, MP3, Linear PCM, Apple Lossless, FLAC, Dolby Digital (AC-3 ), Dolby Digital Plus (E-AC-3) and Audible (Format 2, 3, 4, Audible Enhanced Audio, AAX and AAX +) files. We can also assume that video playback will be the same with supprot for HEVC, H.264, MPEG-4 Part 2 and Motion JPEG, as well as High Dynamic Range with Dolby Vision and HDR10 content.
The supplied components, when purchased, will be the same for the 2018 models, with the hopeful exception of the USB type-C for the cable and wall adapter.
