The days of Apple Pencil being only supported on iPad could soon be numbered.

Citi Research’s Apple analysts published their predictions of new features for the new 2019 iPhones and while most of the list is pretty ho-hum, there’s one new addition that hasn’t been on our radar: Apple Pencil.

The grand unveiling of the iPhone 11 is less than two months away and even though we pretty much already know the new design, that’s not stopping some concept designers of dreaming what could be.

Notchless front displays have already made their way onto Android phones. This year’s iPhone is still expected to have a notch, so Bassam Nasser imagined what it would look like if Apple was ahead of the competition. His gorgeous concept also packs a horizontal three-lens camera and an embossed Apple logo that makes the iPhone look more futuristic than ever.

Too bad this can’t be real:

With renders and dummy units showing how a third rear camera might look on 2019 iPhones, there’s still some debate about how the new lens array will look on the final product.

Notorious smartphone-leaker Ben Geskin tweeted a few images this morning showing a different take on the iPhone XI and iPhone XI Max than we’ve seen before. Instead of having a giant black tile in the back, Geskin suggests Apple may not hide the lenses at all. Instead, the three-lens array would be on full display.

Is this what the iPhone XI will really look like?

Apple won’t unveil the 2019 iPhone lineup for at least another four months, but we already have a pretty solid idea on what it will look like.

New renderings based on leaked information reveal the iPhone XI and XI Max in all their glory. From the front, the new iPhones look pretty similar to the XS and XS Max. When you flip them over though you’ll notice a new triple-lens camera array and new unique rear panel made out of one piece of glass.

This year’s iPhone refresh may bring more than just a spec bump.

A new report claims Apple’s flagship devices will get even bigger to accommodate an additional camera sensor and the largest lenses ever in an iPhone. They may also be ever so slightly thicker than their predecessors.
