As the iPhone 11 launch nears, so are the rumors surrounding the device. We are now going to hear a lot of rumors which would be baseless, outlandish in nature, or come from unverified sources. Today’s leak comes from an alleged Foxconn factory worker who has revealed quite a bit about the upcoming iPhone 11.
As per the Foxconn factory worker, the iPhone 11 will come in four colors. Apart from the three colors that Apple already offers, there will also be a fourth new dark green color which would be the best of the lot. The back glass on the iPhone 11 series will have a matte texture. As per the leaker, Apple will also drop the “iPhone” logo from the rear glass, though the Apple logo will remain intact.
The factory worker also claims that Apple will continue to ship a 1A/5v charger with the new iPhones. He also claims that the iPhone 11 Max will come with a 3969mAh battery which if true would be a massive jump in size from the 3,174mAh battery of the iPhone XS Max. There have been rumors of the iPhone 11 series coming with bigger batteries to make up for the reverse wireless charging feature.
The leaker also claims that Apple has improved the 12MP rear camera on the new iPhones. Apple has been lagging behind in the camera department compared to the likes of Huawei and Google so this would be a much-needed improvement. Disappointingly, if the leaker is to be believed, Apple will continue to offer the iPhone 11 series in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB storage variants.
While there were rumors of Apple updating the TrueDepth camera system on the iPhone 11 series, the leaker claims that the part numbers for them seem to be the same as the iPhone XS signaling no updates.
Other claims made in the leak include no 3D Touch on the new iPhones which would reduce the screen thickness, no in-screen fingerprint scanner, Lighting connector, and a double-layer motherboard.
Lastly, the leaker says that Apple will announce the 10.2-inch iPad later this year and it will replace the 2018 9.7-inch iPad. An iPad Pro update is also in the pipeline, though it would be announced later in the year. We have heard rumors of Apple working on a 10.2-inch iPad so this rumor definitely sounds plausible.
Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 11 on September 10.
Some of the claims made in this leak definitely sound plausible. The bigger battery, improved rear camera, and the new green color definitely sound like they are happening, though the missing ‘iPhone’ logo from the rear panel sounds a bit far-fetched. It is possible that the dummy units lacked the iPhone logo and the Foxconn worker’s assumptions are based on that.
