Rumors come and go, but recently a whole slew of things about what Apple wants to do in 2019 hit the scene.
Now, before we get into the details, it's worth emphasizing that these are rumors . That means they can not change at any point, they may be wrong altogether.
Rumor # 1: 2019 iPhones Will Keep the Lightning Port
With the newest iPad pro models making the switch to USB Apple wants to make the switch this year's iPhone. According to a new leak, it does not seem like the case.
Now, this should not come as a shock to anyone many users would like. At this point, it seems more likely than ever that you switch to USB-C on iPhone until 2020.
It's rumored that the 2019 iPhones wants to ship with the same slow 5w charging brick that they've been for a few years now, even though modern iPhones support quick charging.
Rumor # 2: A New iPad Mini is Coming, and It's Just Like the Old One
If you've been waiting for a new iPad Mini, your dreams may soon be coming to fruition.
Another leak that suggests the iPad Mini 5 wants to roll out sometime in the first half of this year, but wants the overall footprint and design stay much the same. The innocents are more likely to check in on the mini-5.
According to The source of the leak, Apple's A10 chip is said to power the device, which is still a lot faster than the Mini A8. Just that the 4th
Rumor # 3: AirPods 2 and AirPower are coming here
Finally, let's talk about AirPods 2 and the long-awaited AirPower. Apparently, they're coming this year. Apparently.
Let's start with the arguably more interesting of the two: AirPower. Here's a quick refresher if you need it, but the long and short is that it's Apple's mutli-device wireless charging mat. According to a leak from MySmartPrice, AirPower could hit the streets after a long delay.
It was supposed to be released in 2018 but …
Otherwise, AirPods may be off this season with some new stuff. First off, improved bass response. Good! Boom that brain, boys and girls. It's good for the soul.
Further, it's rumored that they have some new built-in heart rate sensor. That's cool. They're so rumored to have a new, grippier coating so you can hold on to them with your sweat-covered hands after a killer workout. One in which you use your AirPods to not only listen to music or podcasts but also monitor your heart rate. The future is neat.
While most of this seems at least somewhat neat and mostly probable, it's always good to take on rumors with a grain of salt.
