It has change into abundantly clear that 2019 is the year to put off your iPhone upgrade. Apple’s iPhone 11 is the ugliest model in years and the company’s 2020 plans look much more exciting. But now the groundwork for the 2020 leap has been found and its most radical change lies within the iPhone 11.
This shocking information comes by way of hugely popular YouTuber Filip Koroy (aka Everything Apple Pro) who has revealed the first pictures of the iPhone 11’s new logic board and it forms the cornerstone of headline changes which shall be seen in iPhones for years to come back.
At face value, the alteration appears minor: Apple is transferring from the L-shaped logic board inside both the iPhone X and iPhone XS to a more compact, stacked rectangular design. And what the new design allows Apple to do is fit a lot larger batteries than the iPhone XS (Koroy states 15-20% larger) which is able to drive the leap from 4G to 5G as well as providing the extra capacity to compensate for reverse wireless charging devices like Air Pods.
As Koroy states, “Apple is taking batteries very severely this year” and this makes sense. The iPhone 11 will miss out on 5G (amongst many different issues) however Apple will give it reverse wireless charging and this enables the company to check the hardware forward of the big 2020 redesign.
How correct is Koroy? He has had some misses however, in this instance, he has attained multiple independent sources and he revealed a transcription from a 3rd who vouches for them as “100% correct”. The timing additionally is smart since earlier iPhone logic board leaks have appeared between July and August as Apple begins to ramp up manufacturing and components begin hitting factory floors.
