iPhone 11 might look painfully familiar

There’s almost no room for doubt that this fall’s iPhone 11 will sport a trio of camera lenses. The latest leak come from case-maker Olixar, who has a reputation for accuracy about future Apple models.

But that’s the most significant change to expect from the 2019 round of iOS handsets.

Images released by Olixar show the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max in some of its products. These also appear in its catalog, mobilefun.com.

This company makes a habit of picturing its cases with unreleased Apple models. What’s important is that its predictions regularly turn out to be correct. For example, a completely accurate image of the 2018 iPad Pro in an Olixar case appeared well before it was unveiled.

iPhone 11 probably won‘t get a change you’ve been hoping for

And now Olixar has done the same for the iPhone 11, even though this device is still months from being announced. Prominently displayed is the trio of camera lens that have been in so many rumors this year.

The images also indicate that Apple might change the silencer switch into a circular slider.

Another rumored improvement might not happen. “Despite the rumours that Apple will ditch the Lightning connector in favor of USB-C port, Olixar believes that Apple will be keeping the Lightning port on its handset launching in September 2019,” said a company spokesperson.

And some of the most important details of the next iOS handset apparently aren’t changing. Virtually all sources agree that the 2019 iPhone models will have the same range of display sizes as the current ones: 6.5 inches,, 6.1 in. and 5.9 in.
