Apple’s iPhone 11 Could Include New Taptic Engine, Improved Cameras

It’s that time of the year again: with less than 2 months to go till September, rumors about Apple’s upcoming iPhones have started appearing. 9to5Mac is reporting some new details on what Apple is going to have in store for iPhone users this year, and we are looking at some major changes.

According to the report, Apple will release three different iPhone 11 models this year, just like it did last year. The company will have the D42 model, which will replace the iPhone XS, the D43 to replace the iPhone XS Max, and the N104 to replace the cheaper iPhone XR. All three of the models will have the same screen resolution as before, though the D42 (iPhone XS) and the D43 (iPhone XS Max) will have a 3x OLED Retina display. They will also feature the new Apple A13 chip, internally codenamed Cebu, which could come with upgraded performance and efficiency.

Apple will also introduce a three-camera setup for the iPhone’s back this year. The company is going to introduce a new lens for a wide-angle image, which will power a new feature called Smart Frame. The idea here is that the Smart Frame feature will capture the area around the framed area in pictures and videos so you can adjust the crop and perspective after taking the picture to include more or less of the scene. It could also power some other new features, though that’s unknown for now.

Apple is also said to be working on an upgraded front-facing camera to enable slow-mo video recording at 120fps.

And last but not least, Apple might introduce a new Taptic Engine on the iPhone 11 called leap haptics. Apple introduced the Taptic Engine on the iPhone 6S to power iOS’ 3D Touch feature, but with the company slowly removing 3D Touch and replacing it with Haptic Touch on iOS 13, it makes sense to replace the Taptic Engine. It’s not clear what type of new features the new engine will provide, though.

We are looking at a September announcement for the new iPhones, and there should be a ton of new leaks before that. So if you are planning to get any of the new iPhones, make sure to keep an eye out.

    <p>Doesn't sound like anything special to me. Another reason to keep the iPhones we have until something really different and useful comes along! I'm perfectly fine with my XR and it should last me up to 5 years.</p>

    <p>“<span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">we are looking at some major changes” Really?? An incremental processor upgrade, new haptic engine and an extra camera lens – nothing here but an S upgrade at most. I’m sure Apple will slap on their usual gloss and squeak excitedly about how this will be their ‘best iPhone ever’ regardless…</span></p>
