It’s that time of year again. Apple has officially begun inviting press members to an event the company will hold on September 10th at the Steve Jobs Theater where, more than likely, the new iPhone 11 lineup will be unveiled. Personally, I haven’t received my invitation just yet, but I expect it to come in the mail at some point (perhaps in a few years when Apple starts reaching out to smaller creators).
At the event, Apple will be unveiling the highly-rumored iPhone 11 line which will consist of successors to the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR. The devices’ names have varied from report to report, but it’s believed that Apple will adopt its “Pro” branding from the iPad and bring it to its smartphone lineup.
The two higher-end iPhone 11 “Pro” models will be the ones succeeding the XS and XS Max. They’ll get three rear cameras, higher price points, nicer designs, and better screens. Meanwhile, the standard iPhone 11 (the one that will succeed the XR) will get two rear cameras, a similar design to last year’s phone, a lower price point, and probably the same LCD screen as we’ve seen in the past.
Across the lineup, there’s a chance the new phones will receive better water resistance, better physical endurance thanks to more durable glass, reverse wireless charging, bigger batteries, and faster charging. It’s going to be an incremental year for the iPhone, so it’ll be interesting to see what else Apple has up its sleeve.
At the end, there’s also a chance we’ll catch a glimpse at the new Apple Watch Series 5. Rumors haven’t been spread around the internet as much as what’s been mentioned about the next iPhones, but one report suggests the new Series 5 will come in both ceramic and titanium enclosures.
Of course, I’ll be writing up lengthy articles on the 10th until the moment I go to sleep covering every single announcement. Be sure to stay tuned.
