Apple iPhone 11 series tipped to retain Lighting port, feature new Taptic Engine

“Given that 2019 iPhones would likely not support 3D Touch, the new Taptic Engine might bring improvements over the current Haptic Touch”

Apple iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Max, and iPhone XR (2019) are expected to go official in the next couple of months. Thanks to numerous leaks, reports, and rumours, we already know a fair deal about the 2019 Apple flagships. They are expected to retain an almost identical design, but with bigger capacity batteries and an extra ultra-wide-angle lens at the back. These handsets are said to be powered by the A13 chipset, with internal codename Cebu, model T8030. Now, according to sources who claim to have seen the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Max, and iPhone XR (2019), Apple will be retaining the Lightning port, contradicting some earlier reports that suggested Apple might finally make a shift to USB Type-C.

Sources claim that the module design is almost similar to many mockups that surfaced the internet

Furthermore, the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max are said to feature a 3x OLED Retina display, while iPhone XR (2019) could still have 2x Liquid Retina display just like the current generation. All three iPhones have been tipped to feature the same screen resolution as their predecessors. This year’s iPhones will reportedly feature new Taptic Engine with a codename ‘leap haptics.’ However, it isn’t clear what new features the new Taptic Engine will offer, but given the fact that 2019 iPhones won’t support 3D Touch, it might bring improvements over the current Haptic Touch.

The iPhone XS and XS Max successors, at this point, are more or less confirmed to feature triple rear cameras in a square matrix. Sources claim that the module design is almost similar to many mockups that surfaced the internet. The new wide-angle sensor on the iPhone 11 duo is said to introduce a new feature called Smart Frame, which is supposed to capture the area around the frame in pictures and videos. This will enable users to adjust the framing or crop corrections and more in post. Moreover, the front-facing camera will get support for slow-motion video recording at 120fps and will also likely be upgraded. Since everything is based on unknown sources, we suggest you take this with a pinch of salt for now.
