This is quite a stretch from previous suggestions that Apple would simply evolve its current 6.1-inch LCD iPhone XR, 5.8-inch OLED iPhone XS and 6.5-inch OLED iPhone XS Max.

According to a report by Japanese-language website Macotakara.jp, the bigger of the two iPhone XI models will sport a 6.5-inch OLED display, while the smaller version will feature a 6.1-inch screen. If that turns out to be true, then we imagine the next iterations of the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS will retain a dual camera arrangement on the rear. Additionally, it claims that the 6.1-inch OLED model will be 0.15 mm thinner than the iPhone XS, with the larger 6.5-inch OLED model being 0.4 mm thinner than the iPhone XS Max. The Wall Street Journal reported in January that only the successor to Apple's iPhone XS Max, which has a 6.5-inch screen, will get the triple-camera upgrade.

The upcoming iPhones will retain the good old Lightning port; however, unlike the current generation iPhones, the next generation devices will carry a fast 10W USB type-C to Lightning port charger in the retail package. The body of this new iPhone would be 0.15mm thicker than the iPhone XS which is 7.7mm thick.

As per the report, the triple rear camera module for the iPhones 2019 will come with a larger camera while the sensor size will also be bigger in comparison to the iPhone XR. What features would the 2019 iPhone series have to contain to make you upgrade to a new device?

The lost aircraft cost 14 billion yen ($126 million), several million more than one bought directly from the United States. Japanese military officials told local media outlets that no problems with the jet were reported before it disappeared.

The next iPhone, likely to be called the iPhone 11, is expected to launch sometime in September this year. They would also get bilateral wireless charging found on the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Huawei P30 Pro.

Macotakara also suggested a couple of other important changes, namely that Apple may switch to USB-C from Lightning on the iPhone.

At the time, Cook said, "Most of our revenue shortfall to our guidance, and over 100 percent of our year-over-year worldwide revenue decline occurred in Greater China across iPhone, Mac, and iPad".
