As we are nearing next month’s iPhone event, new info has surfaced surrounding some of Apple‘s most anticipated products. Thanks to Bloomberg, we now have new details on the iPhone 11; the latest iPad Pro, Apple Watch, and AirPods; and the upcoming MacBook Pro laptop. Additionally, Apple fans can also look forward to software updates for the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac, and Apple Watch.
As is customary since 2017, Apple is expected to release three new iPhones this year, including “Pro” models succeeding the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, and a successor to the iPhone XR. The Pro iPhones will reportedly feature a new rear camera system with a third sensor aiding in capturing wide-angle photos and videos. Each sensor will capture its own image as artificial intelligence software will provide you with the best combined photo. Resolution is likely to be improved with this new camera set-up, in addition to low-light photography.
The video recording capabilities of the new iPhone are said to bridge the gap between professional video cameras. You will be able to edit, crop, and apply effects as a video is being recorded.
Apple’s Pro iPhone is also reportedly equipped with a reverse wireless charging system that allows you to charge AirPods in the wireless-charging case by letting it rest on the back of the phone.
From a cosmetic standpoint, the next iPhone looks nearly identical to the current models. The same size screens are offered, but you will be able to enjoy a new matte finish on the back of some color options. The phones are outfitted with new shatter-resistance technology as well. Additionally, Apple has improved the iPhone’s water-resistance, as it can be full submerged considerably longer than the 30 minutes with the current models.
The successor to the iPhone XR will have a second rear camera for optimal zoom and enhanced portrait mode. This model will be optioned in a new green colorway.
Each of the new iPhones will feature faster A13 processors to aid with augmented reality, as well as rear-facing 3D cameras that improve AR capabilities.
In addition to offering new iPhone models, Apple is expected to debut new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros with camera and processor upgrades. These iPads will, however, look similar to the current versions. Also, Apple is likely to do away with the original 9.7-inch iPad, instead launching the low-end model in a 10.2-inch design.
Bloomberg reports that the new AirPods will seemingly be more expensive than the current $159 model, but they will be water-resistant and noise-cancelling. Apple’s (rumored) plan is to launch the new AirPods by 2020, following the entry-level update from this March.
Apple Watch wearers should be able to take advantage of a watchOS 6 software update and new case finishes. New ceramic and titanium models have been suggested in an early version of iOS 13.
Last but not least, Apple is reportedly updating the MacBook Pro with a screen over 16 inches diagonally. The overall size of the laptop is expected to remain close to the current 15-inch models, however. The company’s previously announced Mac Pro and 32-inch XDR Pro Display will arrive later this year.
