The iPhone 11 release date, price, news and leaks

The iPhone 11 release date is likely in September, but Apple is already rumored to be testing out several iPhone 2019 concepts months in advance, as you’ll see below.

There are plenty of iPhone 11 leaks to pore over on this page, and all of them point to a more significant upgrade than last year’s rather incremental iPhone XS design.

It may not be a radical top-to-bottom change considering the iPhone X redesigned launched in late 2017, but the rear camera may get a big upgrade if you turn your attention to the back of every new iPhone 11 concept we’ve seen.

That’s good news because Apple isn’t selling as many iPhones as previously forecast, so its next flagship has to wow everyone or come down in price to stay competitive.


Cut to the chase

  • What is it? The iPhone 11 will be Apple’s next flagship
  • When is it out? Launch is likely to be mid-September 2019
  • What will it cost? Likely no more than last year’s iPhone XS

Having analyzed previous Apple events, we predict that the iPhone 11 launch date will be on Tuesday, September 10, 2019.

With three iPhones launched in 2018 – the standard iPhone XS, larger iPhone XS Max and budget iPhone XR – we expect Apple to repeat the trifecta this year with the iPhone 11 possibly launching alongside the iPhone 11 Max and the iPhone 11R (names TBC).

So what new features will the iPhone 11 have, and will it still have a notch? Let’s investigate what we expect from Apple’s next flagship iPhone.

New iPhone 11 design (Video leaked)

We’re seeing iPhone 11 renders (shown below) months ahead of Apple’s expected launch event, and all of the attention so far has been to the back. 

We’re seeing iPhone 11 renders (shown below) months ahead of Apple’s expected launch event, and all of the attention so far has been to the back. 

The images show three cameras in a central block on the back, a back which looks to be made of glass, as we’d expect, while the front retains the notch from the iPhone XS. We’ve seen this design rumored a second time now, so it could be accurate.Image 1 of 2

However, it’s not the only design doing the rounds, with another showing a triple-lens camera in the left corner. That would be more in line with where Apple currently places the camera.

These image also show a likely glass back and the same arrangement of buttons as the iPhone XS, and multiple leakers have claimed they’re right.

The leaked case dummies that you can see above show how the triple-lens rear camera might look. Respected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has weighed in to say that one of these lenses might be almost invisible, adding at the same time that the selfie camera will get a boost from 7MP to 12MP.

One of the sources of the earlier images added that three new iPhone models are in the works – successors to the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. It looks very much like we’ll get three models again this year.Image 1 of 2

New iPhone 11 display

We’ve heard that the iPhone XI will have a 5.8-inch display, just like the iPhone XS, but with smaller bezels, and that it won’t support 5G, but that it will, surprisingly, have a 4,000mAh battery and a USB-C port. The same source says to expect space grey, gold, silver and blue colors.

The size of the phone is a hotly contested one though – while some reports say it’ll stay the same size, others suggested the main iPhone 11 will be a bit bigger, and there are too many contradicting voices so we can’t say anything with any degree of certainty.

However, another source says it won’t have USB-C, adding that the front camera will be upped to 10MP (from 7MP on current models), and that the rear camera will have 14MP and 10MP lenses, as well as a third, currently unknown one.

New iPhone 11 features

We’ve now heard multiple times that it won’t get USB-C, so don’t count on a change from Lightning.

One new feature it might get though is two-way wireless charging, allowing you to use the iPhone 11 as a charging mat for other devices. It’s a rumor we’ve heard more than once now so it definitely seems to be on the cards.

In order to make the most of that feature the battery could grow, with reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggesting that the iPhone 11 could get a battery that’s roughly 20-25% bigger than the 2,658mAh one in the iPhone XS.

The iPhone 11 Max’s meanwhile could grow around 10-15% larger than the 3,174mAh one in the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR successor could get one 5% larger than the 2,942mAh one in the iPhone XR. That would all apparently happen without making the phones any thicker, as the laminate on the screen would instead be thinner.

The same source for the first reversible charging tip adds that we might see a frosted glass back, and ultra-wide band connectivity, which would allow for improved indoor positioning. That could help with navigating interiors or might benefit AR applications.

The new iPhones may even be easy to use in the rain. A new report claims Apple is experimenting with a new tech that allows you to use the phone’s screen underwater.

What’s more, a patent suggests the camera on a future iPhone would be able to tell when you’re underwater and alter settings accordingly, so that underwater photographs look better.

In other news, one report points to the inclusion of Sony’s next-gen 3D sensors in the new iPhone, which could in turn offer quicker face unlock, better Portrait mode depth-sensing and some potentially cool 3D modelling features and (AR) implementations. We recently watched a sample of Sony’s AR camera capabilities.

We did see a patent suggested the iPhone 11 could have sub-epidermal scanning to unlock, in which the front camera would scan the veins and blood vessels in your face using IR to make sure it’s actually you unlocking the phone.

For something else a little bit weird, a patent filed by Apple shows a system in which a sensor monitors chemicals in the air, in order to ‘smell’ odors – including body odor. This could be used in the iPhone 11 or Apple Watch 5, or perhaps a later device.

Meanwhile, another iPhone 11 leak suggests the new handsets could support input from the Apple Pencil that currently only works with iPads.

Apple usually introduces a new chipset with its new iPhone launches, and the A13 chip is being touted for the iPhone 11, with analysts claiming a manufacturer is already lined up to produce the A13 chip.

Inside the device we’ve heard talk that the iPhone 11 will include support for the latest Wi-Fi 6 connection standards – though 5G tech might have to wait until the 2020 iPhones.
