“Apple is expected to unveil three new iPhones this year – the iPhone XI, XI Max, and XIR”
Apple will be unveiling the 2019 iPhone models at its event in September. While the brand hasn’t revealed anything about the upcoming handsets, a handful of CAD-based renders of some of the next-gen iPhones were leaked earlier. Now, the alleged 2019 iPhone models have surfaced in the database of the European Economic Commission’s website.
As many as 11 2019 iPhones have been spotted on the Eurasian certification’s website. These models include A2111, A2160, A2161, A2215, A2216, A2217, A2218, A2219, A2220, A2221, and A2223. While the certification hasn’t clarified this, the SKUs with the model number A2111, A2161, and A2215 could be representing the successor of the iPhone XR — the iPhone XIR. The remaining identifiers are expected to be for the iPhone XI and iPhone XI Max. Notably, all these models are certified with iOS 12, but it’s certain that they will launch running iOS 13 out of the box.
According to the earlier reports, the iPhone XI and iPhone XI Max will feature three cameras placed in a square module at the rear, which will mark the debut for triple camera setup on iPhones. The two models are expected to differ in terms of display and battery size. As for the iPhone XIR, the handset is said to come with two vertically placed primary cameras at the rear, also tipped to be placed inside a square module.
The rumour mill suggests that the most affordable of the upcoming iPhone trio, the iPhone XIR will feature a 6.1-inch screen. The iPhone XI is said to offer a 5.8-inch display, while the iPhone XI Max is tipped to arrive with a bigger 6.5-inch display. All of the upcoming handsets are rumoured to come with slightly slimmer bezels than their predecessors and offer the Face ID tech for security. It’s likely that they will be equipped with the brand’s new 7nm fabrication process based A13 chip. Lastly, we can expect the new iPhones to offer improved performance and battery life than the last year’s models.
