It is that time of the year again. Apple's September 10 launch event (scheduled at 10:30PM IST) is well and truly confirmed, and we know that the new iPhone line-up is on the way. This is also following the company's annual launch schedule, usually slated for the second week of September, and nothing changes there. Apart from the new iPhones, the Apple Watch Series 5 is also expected to be launched at the event. While other hardware has also been talked about, we expect Apple to host a separate event for devices such as the new MacBooks and iPads, later this year. With just a few days to go for the Apple iPhone launch event, it seems as though all three upcoming iPhones’ specifications have been leaked enough to convince everyone that this is indeed the real deal. So far, reports suggest that the 2019 iPhones will be named iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, succeeding the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, respectively. All three shall be powered by Apple’s A13 chip, will support Face ID, feature Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, as well as bilateral wireless charging.
Coming back to the iPhone launch event, various reports and leaks online suggest that the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max (again, the naming is not confirmed) are expected to have 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED screens, respectively. Both are said to support the Apple Pencil, and a 12-megapixel front camera. The phones are also expected to feature 12-megapixel triple rear camera setups. While the iPhone 11 Pro may have a 3,190mAh battery and be priced onward of at $999 (~Rs 71,860), the iPhone 11 Pro Max may come with a 3,500mAh battery, and its introductory price may begin at $1,099 (~Rs 79,050). Although the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max are expected to be this year's de facto flagships, the square camera hump on their back has sparked controversy, as the ungainly design is highly unlike the clean features expected from Apple.
At $749 (~Rs 53,880), the iPhone 11 should be the least expensive of the lot, with a 6.1-inch LCD screen, 4GB RAM and a 3,110mAh battery. It is expected to have a dual-camera setup on the back, an improvement over its predecessor, the iPhone XR’s single-camera setup. This variant, however, will not be compatible with the Apple Pencil.
The official launch invite, which is 'by innovation only', shows a multi-hued Apple logo in green, blue, yellow, red and purple. In all likelihood, apart from the standard white, silver, rose gold, black and space grey, the iPhone 11 may be available in green and purple as well, in an interesting departure from tradition. A recent leak also suggested a much-welcome change from the Lightning port to USB-C. Apple will most probably release the iPhone 11 series of smartphones to the market on September 20, making it the first time that all three models are launched simultaneously.
