iPhone 11 release date announced September 2019

iPhone 11 release date announced September 2019: The iPhone 11 will be released in September 2019, according to the latest snippets from the iPhone rumour mill.

Despite tumbling sales figures, Apple is keen to keep iPhone in the news with taster specs of the company’s latest smartphone tech. iPhone suffered the biggest sales dips to date in 2018, despite releasing three top of the range iPhone X models, including a budget iPhone. All indicators pointed to a massively successful yield – especially in the Asian markets. But the boom sales just didn’t materialise.

Now Apple aims to counteract the slump with yet another iPhone launch in 2019. But if the hat trick of 2018 wasn’t enough, what makes them think the iPhone 11 will be the silver bullet they require?

New features in the iPhone 11

Some rumours suggest the iPhone 11 will be a much bigger upgrade than the iPhone XS. Features may include a collaboration with Sony with the 3D sensors, providing faster performance in Face Unlock, 3D modelling and more. There might also be compatibility with the iPhone pencil which is currently popular with iPads. This addition makes sense, especially if the iPhone 11 is going to be even larger than the current iPhone X. Are we entering the realms of absurd phablet-ing again? We at Acefast certainly hope not. That ridiculous idea thankfully died a necessary death soon after the first Samsung tablets were sim/phone compatible.

The iPhone X Notch may go

Despite the notch having been picked up as a smartphone trend by other brands, it looks as though the latest iPhone X next gen may either shrink this famous feature, or get rid of it all together.  The design would have to be heavily modified however, to ensure no tech would be lost in the removal or shrinking of the notch.  But, let’s face it. A notch-less iPhone with a seamless display would be a thing of beauty indeed. And once everyone else is doing it, you need to up your trend and be different again. Also, the notch was not the most popular aspect of the iPhone X when it was first debuted in 2017. In fact, it drew criticism from many areas before it became a trend in other smartphone designs.

Better battery life on iPhones

Let’s face it, it may be a boring thing to wish for, but it’s definitely the most practical function that needs to be improved on iPhones. Battery life is a contentious issue for iPhone – especially after the iPhone battery scandal in early 2018. Just days ago, the discount offered to users who had experienced reduced iPhone performance as a result of poor battery output, ended. That means users have an even bigger reason top hope that iPhone upgrades and iOS are now much more compatible when it comes to powering up. Another great feature is rumoured to be the triple camera for super versatile picture-taking. Let’s face it. These days it’s often down to the quality of camera when it comes to selling a smartphone.

Repair your old iPhone

Of course, you could take the high road in all this and decide to stick with your current iPhone model. If all it needs is a little spruce up, you could end up saving yourself a lot of cash. Remember that new iPhones are now commonly breaking the £500 to £700 price threshold. That’s an awful lot of cash to splash on a new phone, which might look cool, but doesn’t do all that much more than the previous model anyway. If you do decide to repair instead of buy, you’ll be helping to save the planet too. Over 50,000 tons of e-waste is generated every year in the US alone, with disgarded tech making up large proportion of that. The components required to make new smartphones also require mining processes that create additional pollution and waste.
