- All the leaked details of the 2019 iPhone 11/iPhone XI phones ahead of their September launch -
Apple is set to release three new iPhones to succeed the iPhone XR,iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max: the iPhone 11,iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
iPhone 11 release date
According to reliable iPhone leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks), code buried within the iOS 13 beta release appears to suggest that the iPhone 11 will be unveiled on Tuesday 10th September 2019. Pre-orders typically open within 48 hours, so you could be placing an order by the Friday 13th September, with deliveries starting as soon as the following Friday, the 20th September.
Apple will offer the sim-free 5.8in iPhone 11 at $999 (128GB), $1099 (256GB) and $1199 (512GB). The sim-free 6.5in iPhone 11 will top out at a whopping $1299 (512GB).
Will the iPhone 11 have a better camera?
According to a Reddit post by a user who 'worked at Foxconn', the triple lens array will feature a 12-megapixel primary sensor that would "aggressively" improve the iPhone 11's photography game.
One of the rear lenses will have a 120-degree field of view, while a new front camera will sport a reduced 'notch' and deliver improved facial recognition and augmented-reality (AR) capabilities.
Both the top-of-the-range 5.8in and 6.5in iPhone 11s will supposedly get the third rear lens, while the successor to the 'budget' iPhone XR will stick with a dual lens. Want to up your phone photography game? You might want to start saving up.
Will the iPhone 11 come in new colours?
Apple is rumoured to be adding a new dark green hue to its familiar range of white, back and gold colourways. The author of the rumour likened it to the Sony Z5 in verdant 'Forest Green'.
