We’re still two months away from the time of year when Apple usually announces their new batch of iPhones, but the rumour mill has been busy once again.
Since the start of the year, leaks and predictions have been rolled out in the build-up to the release of the new iPhone 11.
Earlier this year, Apple also announced a range of exciting software updates headed for almost all of their devices, including the iPhone, iPad, Mac desktops and laptops, Apple TV, and Apple Watch.
To keep you in the know and up to date, here’s the latest from Gizmodo:
Previous leaks about the next iPhone have already indicated that Apple is moving to a triple rear camera module on at least one version of the iPhone 11, though less expensive models may only get two rear cameras.
This suggests Apple will include a new ultra-wide angle camera alongside the phone’s primary and telephoto cameras found on the current iPhone XS.
And in keeping with past upgrades, according to Bloomberg, it appears that Apple will also have a new A13 chip for use in the iPhone 11 and revamped iPhone XR that will include all the usual improvements like better energy efficiency, boosted performance, and more.
Previous rumours suggested that the iPhone would come complete with 3D Touch, but this feature has been removed from all iPhones.
Potential iPhone buyers can look forward to upgrades such as new antenna tech that should deliver improved cellular speeds and better reception, and a new “black lens-coating”that could help hide the presence of the iPhone’s front-facing cameras.
With more design upgrades expected in 2020, the iPhone just keeps getting better and better.
The same can be said for the AirPods, and they’re also due for a revamp:
As for Apple’s wildly popular wireless earbuds, despite refreshing the AirPods earlier this spring with a new H1 chip that delivers a more stable audio connection along with an optional wireless charging case, according to analysts from Wedbush, Apple could push out third-gen AirPods with a refreshed design and built-in water resistance before the end of the year.
Apple is expected to announce its new line of iPhones and other goodies on September 10 this year.
To shop that range later in the year, and for all your Apple needs year-round, check in with Digicape, South Africa’s largest independent Apple retailer.
If you’re a first time iPhone user or need a little help getting to grips with the new upgrades, you can even make a Fundi Booking – a one-on-one appointment with one of their ‘Apple Fundis’ – to discuss any question you have related to your Apple hardware or software.
Apple pros can also trade in their older Apple goodies (iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches) for discounts on the latest products, which might come in handy when the latest gadgets are rolled out later this year.
Admit it, you love rocking the latest iPhone.
