In the last year there were too many rumors to count for the successor of the iPhone X R . But we have summarized all the possible ones to get a good idea of what the siblings of the iPhone 11R will look like in 2019. Some of the rumored specifications are in line with the leaks around the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, but there are some obvious differences, just like last year.
With Apple's September event just around the corner, we already have a pretty good idea about the design, the material and even the cameras. Many of the predictions surrounding the original iPhone X R have come true in the definitive release, and there is no reason to believe it will be different this year.
Number of Models
As last year, one can safely assume that there will be three different iPhone models at the end of 2019. According to the well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and other sources, all three devices will be successors to the current product line.
The new name
The X p Successors are said to be iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, but where does the iPhone X R follow-up? There were no clear rumors from analysts or leakers about the name, so it's everyone's guess. No previous additional model (iPhone 5C and iPhone SE) did two iterations so no one found a usable name. Apple seems to have dug into a hole with this.
Apple could call it something completely different, like the iPhone XC. However, the most likely option is to play the "Pro" branding for the associated devices. Since these are called Pro, it is quite possible that the iPhone 11R 2019 is just the iPhone 11 or the iPhone XI. "Pro" would suggest superior specifications, and since the succession of X R is cheaper and makes sense with lower specifications.
In this sense, it could simply repeat the R branding, like iPhone 11R or iPhone XIR. For the sake of simplicity and to avoid confusion, we refer to it in the remainder of this article as the iPhone 11R.
We are close to the Apple event in September 2019, but no invitation from the press has yet been received. Logically, this event, announcing the iPhone 11R, will take place on Tuesday, September 10th. This is because Apple organizes these events on Tuesdays and Wednesdays only, the time from Labor Day and the likelihood that Apple wins. I do not want to host a September 11 event because of the story of that day.
While the iPhone X R was a month after the iPhone X S  models, the consensus is that Apple will release all three 2019 iPhone models at the same time becomes. Preorder data always falls on the Friday after the event and in most cases on the following Friday. This would give the iPhone 11R a pre-order for September 13th and a release for September 20th.
- Announcement Date: Expected Tuesday, September 10, 2019
- Pre-Order Date: Expected Friday, Sept. 13, 2019
- Release Date: Expected Friday, September 20, 2019
There are no foolhardy rumors about memory sizes yet, but they're likely to follow suit with last year's devices, 64GB, 256GB and 512GB for the two iPhone 11 Pro models and 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB for the iPhone 11R.
- Available storage: 64 GB, 256 GB, or 512 GB
- Expandable storage: No
No information about the cost of the iPhone 11R is currently displayed. However, it is likely that Apple will continue to offer the "R" series at competitive prices. If Apple intends to charge $ 999 for the base model 11 Pro, it is not surprising that the price of the iPhone 11R is again $ 749. However, Apple could increase the price if more expensive parts are to be used for this year's iteration (see below for information).
AppleCare + will also be available, and its plans are likely to be the same as the iPhone. X R . This means that you have $ 149 in full for the primary offer and $ 249 for additional theft and loss protection. Monthly plans are also available, but you will pay more over time.
- Price: 749 (64GB), 799 (128GB), and 899 (256GB)
- AppleCare +: $ 149 or $ 249 (or $ 7.99 or $ 12.99 per month)
The 11R is apparently maintaining the aluminum frame of the current iPhone X R . However, there may be differences in other design elements this year. While most retailers agree that the 11R retains the iconic notch, Apple can scale it down or remove it altogether. Old reports say Apple is trying to combine facial recognition elements with the camera, which would reduce the need for such a large section. Whether the company is using the 11R for a notch change is still up for debate, but it's worth hoping.
While some thought we could see a non-round frame like the 3rd generation On iPad Pro models we place our bets on the shape of the 11R, which looks rounded like the X R .
The 11R's windscreen is not particularly subject to speculation that Apple will continue to use the "strongest front glass" of the X R . However, we have seen some major rumors concerning the rear window of the 11R. First, the new iPhone may be more likely to see a frosted glass back than the smooth glass back we've seen in the last two generations. The 11R would feel more like a Pixel 3 than a X R that could add an element of "novelty" to the device. However, some people believe that the design will be reserved for the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max only.
We also hear that Apple is following a bold approach to labeling this year. The 11R could well omit the iPhone branding that appears on the back of any iPhone, leaving only the Apple logo in place.
We'll talk about the 11R's camera setting rumor below, but know we expect a camera bumps like we've had since the iPhone 6. Rumors say Apple could use a single pane of glass for the back of the phone and shape the back glass around the bumps of the camera.
11R is as diverse as the X R . However, this year's rumor is about two colors – blue and coral – for green and lavender. Although this is not an expected replacement, Apple wants to separate its new, colorful iPhone line from last year.
The buttons on the 11R are in slightly different positions than older models. And we've heard a rumor that the current design of the mute buttons will switch to a round button, but it's not sold yet.
- Frame: Probably aluminum (7000 series)
- Back: Perhaps a piece of glass with a matte finish
- Finish: Black, White, Red, Yellow, Green, Lavender, ( PRODUCT) RED
Apple likes to promote its commitment to the environment. Expect, therefore, that the 11R excludes mercury, arsenic, brominated flame retardant, PVC and beryllium. We'll probably see how the 11R has a low-carbon process, but we want to know where the materials come from and how to recycle Apple before embarking on the green statements.
Basics  Due to the limited amount of data, it is likely that the 11R retains similar or identical dimensions to its predecessor. We would bet that the only expected change here is the weight, due to the new reversing camera. Kuo claims that the "2019 iPhones" will have IP68 for water and dust resistance. Whether this includes the 11R is not clear, but it would be a wise decision by Apple to extend this protection for the "budget" iPhone.
- Size: Probably 5.94 inches
- Width: Probably 2.98 inches
- Depth: Probably 0.33 inches
- Weight: Currently unknown  Dust / Water Resistance: possibly IP68 according to IEC Standard 60529
- Mobile Network Operator: AT & T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon
As we summarized in our summary of 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max notes, environmental operating requirements are likely to be identical again this year, considering that Apple has not changed these specifications since. IPhone 7.
- Operating Temperature: 32 ° to 95 ° F
- Non-operating temperature : -4 ° to 113 ° F
- Relative Humidity: 5-95% non-condensing  Operating altitude: up to 10,000 feet (but could be more)
Display  The 11R display should that's the same size as the X R – that's the familiar 6.1-inch display and 79% screen-to-body ratio. That should be good for XR fans, as the "mid-size" screen acts as a good compromise between the smaller XS and the larger XS Max and will soon be 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.
Last year you had to choose between X R between the OLED displays from Apple and the cheaper LCD. It is rumored that Apple drops the LCD in favor of an OLED display for the 11R. However, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims the LCD will be preserved this year. While OLED fans may be saddened that an iPhone 2019 has an LCD display, an OLED display is definitely expected next year.
Even if we see an LCD display for the 11R, it would be nice to see if Apple would boost the resolution and performance pixel density. Unfortunately, this is unlikely, as rumors point to unchanged display specifications between the 11R and its predecessor. In this case we expect that the brightness will most likely remain the same. Color temperature varies from phone to phone, so we'll probably have to wait until we get the X R for testing. We would like to see ProMotion displays with 90 or 120 Hz, but it looks like they will not be available until 2020. The 11R comes with the typical 60 Hz display.
We also do not expect Apple to integrate 3D Touch the 11R. In fact, the status of 3D Touch on the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max is in the air. At least, we hope Apple is working to expand the capabilities of Haptic Touch. Speaking of which, it is expected that the entire iPhone 11 family will receive a Taptic Engine update called a "switch feel". It remains to be seen how this will improve compared to the already outstanding Taptic Engine and if it contributes to the strengthening of Haptic Touch.
- Screen Size: 6.1 inches
- Screen Resolution: 1792 x 828 pixels  Pixel Density: 326 ppi
- Screen Type: probably Liquid Retina LCD
- notch : yes
- Screen-to-Body Ratio: 79%
- Aspect Ratio: 19.5: 9
- Minimum Brightness: At 2-6 Nits
- High Brightness: Probably 700 Nits
- Refresh Rate: 60 Hz (120 Hz for Touch Sensing)
- Color Temperature: Currently Unknown
- 3D Touch: No
- Haptic Touch: Yes
We do not have many details In addition, the 11R will include the A13 chip in addition to the 11 Pro and the 11 Pro Max. While there are not many rumors surrounding the iPhone 11R chipset, Macworld's Jason Cross speculates that Apple will continue to use two high-performance cores and four energy-efficient cores for the A13, while expecting modest gains in GPU performance.
Last The XR of the year was on board with 3 GB of RAM. It is quite possible that Apple continues the tradition, as iOS is a very RAM-friendly operating system. Considering that the 11R is supposed to add an extra camera lens to the mix, the device is likely to ship with 4GB of RAM instead.
- RAM: 3-4 GB RAM
- Processor: Apple A13
- Chip Size: Currently Unknown
- Coprocessor: Currently Unknown
- CPU Frequency [CPUcores: 6 cores
- GPU: Apple Design (unknown model)
- GPU cores: Currently unknown
Battery  Kuo dampens the rumors about batteries for the 11R a little and claims we should only Expect a maximum increase in battery size this year by 5%. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Keep in mind that last year's XR came with a 2,942 mAh battery and had the best battery life in the 2018 iPhone family. That could be this year's size, or Apple could change things. The A13 chip may need more power or it may be an efficient S0C. We will not really know until we see more rumors here.
While the 11R may not see much of a battery bump, Kuo claims that it will receive a bilateral wireless charge along with the other 2019 iPhones. This feature allows the 11R to charge other products from the back of the device, such as AirPods with a wireless charging case or even your Apple Watch. Samsung has already introduced this feature as Wireless PowerShare for the Galaxy S10 and Note 10, so it's high time for Apple to get on board.
We do not currently know much about the loading speeds of the 11R. Presumably, the 11R will continue to charge quickly with a Lightning to USB C cable and a USB-C wall adapter, so there are rumors from Macotakara that Apple will have an 18W charger in its box. Of course, the situation is complicated, as Macotakara directly contradicts these claims with a report that the 5W charger will continue to ship with all 2019 iPhones. We would also like support for wireless charging to increase from 7.5 watts to 15 watts, but there are currently no solid rumors. No matter what, the 11R will support all Qi certified charging stations.
If we go back to the renderings, we can see that the X R is probably supplied with the standard Lightning port we all know and love, though it's great would be if Apple decides on all its devices for USB-C.
- Battery: Rechargeable Li-ion Battery
- Capacity: possibly 2.942 mAh
- Wireless Charging: 7.5 Watts
- Two-sided Wireless Charging: Probably  Charging Port: Blitz
- Wired Charging: Flash on USB
According to Kuo, for all iPhones from 2019 – including the 11R – an upgrade of the face ID Systems performed. The new sensors can better sort out external light sources so they can better focus on identifying your face.
Because they are sensors, the new front camera has a 12 MP CIS + 5P lens that has a large bulge above the lens 7 MP sensors in earlier iPhones. Thanks to a report from 9to5Mac we expect a slow motion of 120 fps. The back cameras of the iPhone have long longed for "slow motion", so that the front cameras have the first time to record videos in slow motion.
Regarding other front camera specifications The rumors were pretty quiet.
- Resolution: 12 MP
- Aperture: Currently Unknown
- Zoom: Currently Unknown
- Flash: Screen-based  Image Stabilization: Probably software-based  RAW support: no
- Object recognition: Body, Faces, Winks, Tongues
Reversing camera (photos)
While supporting the iPhone X R currently a single – yet impressive – camera lens, the 11R could expand the camera to by two lenses. While this would match the number of lenses to last year's premium iPhones, it is rumored that the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro Max have three lenses.
There are not too many rumors talking about the 11R's specific cameras, but we think Apple has the same lenses in the 11R as in the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, with the exception of the third super wide-angle lens. In this case, these two cameras – a telephoto and a wide-angle camera – each have a resolution of 12 MP. However, early leaks indicate that one of these sensors will be 10 MP and the other 14 MP. Therefore, there is always the possibility that Apple offers both a higher and a lower megapixel number.
While the 11R might be a lens short here, it could take on the rumor "box" design. The 11R's twin lenses could be in a massive black square on the back of the iPhone. They could also be coated with a black coating to fit directly into the housing. This reflects the rumor of the design of the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, minus the extra lens. Other renderers show this camera box matching the color of the 11R. You can see the two lenses on the left, with the microphone in the upper right corner and the flash in the lower right corner.
These rear lenses could also be used for serious scans. Rumor has it that Apple may integrate Sony's 3D sensors into the 11R's reversing camera, which uses "time of flight" technology to image a specific location in 3D. Recent, reliable rumors say that ToF will be pushed back to 2020. So do not expect it on the 11R.
Even though the 11R is just a lens among the 11 pros, you should not worry about portrait-quality. The portrait mode works great with the X R single lens, which makes us confident that Apple will only improve on this success with twice the number of cameras this year. XR users upgrading would also notice the benefit of the optical zoom when switching between the "1x" wide-angle camera and the "2x" telephoto camera. Leakage appears to exist for the feature.
- Resolution: probably 12 MP + 12 MP
- Aperture: currently unknown
- Zoom: probably 2x optical (digitally unknown)
- Flash: Quad LED -True Tone Flash with Slow Sync
- Image Stabilization: Optical, All Lenses
- RAW Support: Yes
- Lens Cover: Sapphire Crystal  Objekterfennung: Körper, Faces
- Formats: HEIF, JPEG, RAW
Reversing camera (video)
It seems that we should not expect anything new with videos for the reversing camera. Unless there are any new features on their way to escape the rumors, we should see similar video specifications compared to last year's iPhone. X R :
- Resolution: 720p, 1080p, and 4K
- Maximum frame rate: 30 fps for 720; 60 fps for 1080p and 4K
- Slow motion: Yes, 1080p at 120 or 240 fps
- Timelapse: Yes, with stabilization
- Photos: 8 MP still images during 4K recording
- Zoom: 3x optical, 6x digital
- Flash: Quad LED True Tone Flash
- Image Stabilization: Optical
- Lens Cover: Sapphire Crystal  Object recognition Body, Faces
- Audio: Stereo
- Formats: H.264, H.65 (HEVC)
No It is Expected That to change new changes in terms of audio functionality with the iPhone X R . So there will be no 3.5mm headphone jack, there will be stereo speakers and a total of three microphones.
If you're hoping for a return of the headphone jack, think again – we have no reason to believe that Apple's 11R will change significantly in terms of audio playback. All we expect are stereo speakers, triple microphones and the missing 3.5mm headphone jack.
- 3.5mm Headphone Jack: No
- Stereo Speakers: Yes
- Total of Three (Rear, Front and Bottom)
- Maximum Speaker Volume: unknown  Sensors
Do not expect big changes in the sensor department. From what we've seen so far, the 11R comes with the same sensors that last year's iPhones did, though everything is possible. One or more of the following sensors could also be removed if a newer can do his job.
- Sensors: GPS, barometer, accelerometer, three-axis gyroscope, proximity sensor, magnetometer, barometer, digital compass, pedometer
Although there are not many rumors about a SIM upgrade for the 11R, The phone may ship with Wi-Fi 6. This upcoming update to Wi-Fi 5 will be the result. At higher speeds and lower power consumption, a technology-compatible iPhone will be a marvel for the life of your device.
However, we do not expect 5G to reach the 11R. While some rumors point to 5G iPhones in 2019, most suggest that 2020 is the year. Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC will find their way to the 11R 2019, as will the X R .
According to a Barclays research report, the 11R could receive a 4×4 MIMO (Multiple Input) multiple output antenna. This new design would bring four antennas to the 11R, compared to the two antennas of the X R which increases the connectivity speeds.
The rumors also indicate that the 11R receives a modified polyimide (MPI). along with an ultra-broadband upgrade. MPIs are an improvement over the conventional liquid crystal polymer (LCP), and it is rumored that the 11R will see four MPIs and two LCPs.
The greatest improvement in MPIs is achieved when used indoors. Therefore, the indoor maps of Apple Maps for shopping malls and airports on the 11R should perform better than on the X R . You may also see improved connections over short distances, eg. For example, with your iPhone to Apple Watch, other iPhones, Airpods, wireless printers, etc.
Even if we want to give free rein to our imagination, the 11R will get an Apple Pencil support, we have to face facts. There are no viable rumors that could prove that Apple Pencil is on its way to 11R. The most specific leak we see is a predication by Citi Research, which expects pencil support for the iPhones from 2019. Apart from this assumption, however, there is not much to confirm (or deny!) That Apple Pencil works with the iPhone 11R.
The Lightning port also seems to stay here. While previous rumors pointed to the possibility of USB-C encountering the new iPhones, recent stories – including rumors from Kuo – have once again triggered the lightning effect.
- Wi-Fi: 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6)
- Bluetooth: 5.0
- NFC: yes
- Cellphone: Dual Nano SIM Card Slot, Gigabit Class LTE
- Port: Lightning
- Other: iBeacon Microlocation, AirPlay, AirDrop
- Apple Pencil: unlikely
The iPhone 11R will be back with Face ID, a powerful security method supported by the TrueDepth camera. As noted above, we have seen improvements to facial recognition that could lead to more accurate facial scans. However, we assume that Face ID has a one-to-one-million chance of being successful, which in most cases is sufficient to keep the random stranger away. Your Apple Pay and Apple Pay Cash payments are well protected by Face ID.
Kuo believes the 11R will receive floodlighting. This feature helps refine facial recognition by ignoring non-visible sources of light to focus on reading your face.
The limited USB mode also finds its way into the 11R, preventing third-party devices from establishing a wired connection to your iPhone and extracting your private information. You need a passcode to grant access when you connect your iPhone to a computer.
- Security: Face Detection and Limited USB Mode
The iPhone 11R comes preloaded with iOS 13. Apple will announce the software on the same day as the iPhone, as is mostly tradition. If you are considering jailbreaking your iPhone 11R, you'll have to wait for Jailbreaker to figure out how to take advantage of iOS 13.
- Software: iOS 13 and later
Built-in features Include Wi-Fi or cellular FaceTime video calls, FaceTime audio, Voice over LTE (VoLTE), Wi-Fi calls, and full Siri. Support. A variety of language options, QuickType keyboard, Siri, dictation, dictionaries and spell checker will also be available.
The following audio files are supported – AAC-LC, HE-AAC, HE-AAC v2, Protected AAC, MP3, Linear PCM, Apple Lossless, FLAC, Dolby Digital (AC-3), Dolby Digital Plus (E-AC-3) and Audible files (formats 2, 3, 4, Audible Enhanced Audio, AAX and AAX +). Support for video playback includes HEVC, H.264, MPEG-4 Part 2 and Motion JPEG, as well as High Dynamic Range with Dolby Vision and HDR10 content.
What you see next to the box The iPhone itself will most likely be the same as the iPhone 11R:
