But the reporters also provided some additional details about the new phones, confirming numerous rumors and reports that have been floating around the internet. Production of Apple's A13 Bionic chipset has already gone into mass production that will feature in the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11R and now we hear that the Cupertino-based brand will launch the next generation iPhone XR in two new colour options. It was also popular in the USA where iOS has more of an even split with Android - accounting for around 45 percent of all new smartphones. According to Bloomberg, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has already begun production of the A13 processor that will power the 2019 iPhone models.
For the 2019 iPhone range, there are expected to be three new models.
According to insiders, Apple will keep its release cycle from a year ago by delivering two high-end successors to the XS and XS Max as well as an updated XR.
Renders show that iPhone 11r will feature the same notched display, metal frame, and glass design that we have seen on iPhone Xr. There will also be an auto-correction feature in which people who were accidentally cut out from a photo can be added back into it. The top-end iPhone 11 is expected to come with three rear cameras that are housed in a new square camera bump.
iPhone XR will undergo a massive upgrade under the hood this year, so expect it to get the same A13 processor as the other iPhones, but at the same time, it should also get two cameras instead of one on the back. The second camera on the updated XR model will have telephone lens.
Additionally, Bloomberg's sources said that Apple plans on introducing its own version of a Samsung's Wireless Powershare, which would allow charging of accessories like AirPods by simply putting them on the back of a phone.
