If Apple doesn’t make any major changes to its usual release timeline for the next-generation of iPhones, then we should expect the new smartphones to be revealed during the upcoming weeks. Since these are the next-generation iPhones that we are talking about, no one should be shocked or surprised to find out that there are countless rumors about their hardware specs and features. However, the one rumor that seems to be backed up by analysts and tech leaksters is that Apple is planning to launch a special version of iPhone 11 that will be called “Pro”.
iPhone 11 Pro
The first thing that we want to note about the new high-end iPhone is the “Pro” in its name. Apple has a tradition of naming its most powerful devices “Pro” just take for example Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, iPad Pro and iMac Pro. However, this moniker has never been used on an iPhone. Therefore, the expectations for iPhone 11 Pro are really high, especially since the smartphone will hold the title of being Apple’s flagship.
New Camera Technology
According to a report from the folks at Bloomberg, whom we have to mention that they have a stellar record of predicting upcoming Apple products, iPhone 11 Pro will ship with a new camera. The report from Bloomberg is saying that iPhone 11 Pro will ship with a triple-camera setup. The setup will feature a third sensor which is equipped with an ultra-wide-angle lens that is going to make it possible for iPhone 11 Pro users to snap incredible pictures.
- Artificial Intelligence for Photos
One of the most interesting things about iPhone 11 Pro’s new camera technology is that the smartphone will snap three images at the same time and then it will utilize AI (artificial intelligence) technology in order to adjust the frame and find out if someone or something has been cut out of the image. Not just that, but through the use of AI, iPhone 11 Pro’s camera setup will also be able to capture pictures in higher resolution than usual.
- Low Light Performances
Another cool thing about the new camera setup is that it will be able to perform better in low light environments. The way this will work is with help from an iOS native feature that has been specially designed to compete against Google’s “Night Sight”.
- Editing Tools
The last thing that we want to cover when it comes to the camera setup of iPhone 11 Pro is that Apple is going to give users access to a bunch of new tools and video improvements. For example, iPhone 11 Pro users will be able to retouch, apply effects, alter colors, reframe and crop a video while it is being recorded on the smartphone.
Under the Hood
Now that we covered the camera setup that iPhone 11 Pro will offer, let’s get to the really good stuff. iPhones are renowned for offering super-fast performances and iPhone 11 Pro is expected to be the most powerful smartphone that Apple has ever made. With that said, we have rounded up a list with all the leaked features that iPhone 11 Pro will have to offer so that we can get a good idea about the smartphone’s performances.
- Reverse Wireless Charging
Samsung and Huawei have introduced a new technology called reverse wireless charging earlier this year and Apple is going to do the same with iPhone 11 Pro. This means that iPhone 11 Pro users will be able to charge their AirPods just by placing them on the back of the smartphone. What we don’t know is if this technology can be used in order to charge one iPhone from another.
One of the things that iPhones always lacked and Apple received lots of criticism because of this is a fast-charger that ships inside the box. Apple has introduced support for fast charging ever since it released iPhone X and now, rumor has it that the Cupertino based tech giant wants to finally bundle a fast-charger inside the box of iPhone 11 Pro. However, this is also going to make iPhone 11 Pro a little bit more expensive than other models.
- Improved Face ID
We previously mentioned iPhone X and this is also the smartphone that first introduced the Face ID technology that makes it possible for iPhone users to unlock their smartphones just by looking at them. Apple is going to improve this key feature by introducing a new multi-angle Face ID sensor. This technology will be able to scan the user’s face and unlock the iPhone 11 Pro even though the smartphone might be placed in a weird position that doesn’t point directly at the user’s face.
- A13 Chip with AMX Co-Processor
The most important hardware part that iPhone 11 Pro is going to offer is a brand-new A13 processor that is going to ship with an entirely separate AMX co-processor. This means that iPhone 11 Pro will have a secondary processor that will be able to take care of heavy-duty tasks such as AR and AI features.
5G Support is Not Going To Be Available
The last thing that we want to note about iPhone 11 Pro is that sadly, the next-generation smartphone will not feature support for 5G connectivity. This is a big problem for Apple since Samsung which is its biggest competitor has already introduced support for 5G connectivity on the brand-new Galaxy Note 10.
On the other hand, we have to mention that US network carriers still have yet to implement a large 5G network so the new technology can’t actually be used to its fullest potential. However, Apple did recently acquire Intel’s modem chip division and it will start producing 5G chips by 2021.
