    notes Cross, writing for MacWorld, “I don’t think Apple will spend its transistor budget the same way; doubling up the high-power CPU cores from 2 to 4. Rather, I suspect Apple will continue to have two high-performance CPU cores and four energy-efficient cores, with an outside chance of increasing the high-performance core count from 2 to 3.”

    If all of the above is true, Apple’s A13 CPU will have around 40% more transistors to play with – but what will they be used for? Again, the current speculation is that Apple will use the surplus to make further refinements to the chipset’s onboard AI – AKA Apple’s Neural Engine.

    Word on the street suggests Apple is looking to bring the operations per second of its Neural Engine to around five to six times more than the A12’s current capacity (5 trillion operations per second). If true, this could open up major breakthroughs in image processing, augmented reality, and even things like Siri.

    iPhone 11 WILL NOT Feature 5G 

    One of the biggest downsides to Apple’s incoming iPhone 11 handsets is to do with connectivity – none will feature 5G. Why? Apple didn’t have the correct modems ready in time. This is why Apple just spent BILLIONS acquiring Intel’s mobile modem business – it wants to make its own 5G chips for 2020’s iPhone.

    Is this is a big deal? Kind of. I mean, all of Samsung’s new Android phones coming will support 5G. In fact, most Android phones released between now and 2020 will support 5G. In the UK and US, 5G networks are now actively rolling out, and the iPhone 11 not supporting it is kind of a big deal.

    Why would you get the iPhone 11 when you could grab the Pixel 4 or Samsung Galaxy Note 10 for less money AND get access to faster mobile network speeds? Most iPhone users will likely hold out until 2020 for Apple’s iPhone 12 releases, which will feature new designs and 5G connectivity.

    Here’s what Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said about Apple’s plans for 5G on its new iPhones:

    “We now believe that all three new 2H20 iPhone models will support 5G for the following reasons. (1) Apple has more resource for developing the 5G iPhone after the acquisition of Intel baseband business. (2) We expect that the prices of 5G Android smartphones will decline to $249-349 USD in 2H20. We believe that 5G Android smartphones, which will be sold at $249-349 USD, will only support Sub-6GHz. But the key is that consumers will think that 5G is the necessary function in 2H20. Therefore, iPhone models that will be sold at higher prices have to support 5G for winning more subsidies from mobile operators and consumers’ purchase intention. (3) Boosting 5G developments could benefit Apple’s AR ecosystem.”

    current iPhone XS and iPhone X does now.

    That’s not to say there won’t be any design changes. One very subtle one will be a redesigned mute button on the side of the device. Right now that mute button takes the form of a switch, but its rumored the iPhone 11 mute button will take the slider form factor. This should make the button less pronounced and also make it less likely to be toggled accidentally in your pocket.

    There is also evidence the iPhone 11 may feature a frosted glass back, making it easier to grip. Frosted glass backs exist on some Android phones already. Another design change that is possible is Apple MIGHT ditch Lightning for USB-C. Apple will do this eventually on their iPhones, but it’s just a matter of if the 2019 iPhone will get USB-C or if that connection I/O will wait until 2020.

    Apple is also working on improvements to FACE ID inside the iPhone 11 range, things that will make it even more secure. According to recent leaks and new patents, Apple is looking to advance the scanning technology of FACE ID to analyze the veins in your face as well as its shape, structure, and unique features.

    The ability to scan veins, and then use them as a reference point for matching your face, seems crazy. But the fact of the matter is simple: the structure of capillaries and blood vessels in your face it totally unique to you; no one else as the same layout. And this, combined with FACE ID’s already excellent scanning technology, will make FACE ID on the iPhone 11 even more secure.

    iPhone 11 Camera

    iPhone XS

    Perhaps the biggest change to the iPhone 11 will be in the camera department. The front camera is supposed to see a pretty big boost on the iPhone 11, going from a 7MP sensor in the 2018 iPhone to a 12MP sensor in the 2019 iPhone. That’s great for selfie-lovers.

    But the biggest camera change will be found in the rear. That’s because at least one model of the iPhone 11 is expected to get a triple-lens rear camera. It’s possible both models might, or it could be that the triple-lens camera is limited to the iPhone 11 Max model. The only downside? It’s proper ugly…

    iphone-11-release-date-specs-prices

    Case-maker Olixar recently leaked a bunch of its new designs for Apple’s iPhone 11, confirming A) that the iPhone 11 will indeed feature a triple-lens camera, and B) that it will look truly ugly, standing out from the chassis like a sore thumb.

    The iPhone 11’s camera will feature three distinct cameras – main, telephoto and wide-angle. This will greatly improve the camera capabilities of the iPhone 11 over the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, adding in more features and better overall quality to images.

    The triple-ten camera would be made up of a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, and a 12-megapixel super wide-angle lens. These lenses will enable a larger field of view, a wider zoom range, improved low light performance, in addition to them capturing more pixels.

    The only question now is whether or not the triple-lens camera will be exclusive to the iPhone 11 XS Max model. Given Apple’s track-record with secreting new technology away inside its most expensive model, it seems like a given that this will the case, sadly.

    However, there is always hope. Competition in the phone space is very stiff right now; plenty of cheaper Android alternatives offer triple-lens cameras, so perhaps Apple will outfit its entire 11 range with this camera array. Unlikely? Yes. Possible? You never know…

    iPhone 11 Price

    The good news is we don’t expect the price of the iPhone 11 to increase over the price of the current iPhone XS—but we don’t expect to see a decrease in the price point either.

    That means expect the entry-level iPhone 11 to start t £999 and the entry-level iPhone 11 Max to start at £1,099. The prices for the maxed-out mobiles of the iPhone 11 should cost £1,349 and £1,449, respectively.
