We’ve were given extra on names underneath, however extra importantly we’ve additionally amassed the entire leaks and rumors we will be able to in finding in regards to the iPhone 11R’s design, specifications and lines.
Being an iPhone, and being this with reference to release, so much has been leaked, so there’s lots to get caught into. We’ll additionally make sure you replace this newsletter every time we pay attention the rest new, so test again incessantly for all issues iPhone 11R.
Minimize to the chase
- What’s it? The successor to the iPhone XR
- When is it out? Indicators level to September 10

iPhone 11R unlock date and worth
The iPhone 11R is bound to land in September, as that’s when Apple generally broadcasts new handsets. Extra particularly, it’s very prone to land on September 10, as a picture appearing this date has been discovered within the iOS 13 beta.
Even earlier than that even though, we predicted that it might be introduced on September 10, as in the previous couple of years the bulletins have taken position at the Tuesday or Wednesday round that date.
Wednesday September 11 is not likely for obtrusive causes, so the Tuesday was once our very best wager, with pre-orders most probably opening on Friday September 13, and the telephone most likely happening sale on Friday September 20, in line with previous shape.
On the other hand, the iPhone XR in reality went on sale later than the iPhone XS vary, with other folks not able to shop for it till October 26 of 2018, so we will be able to’t rule out a an identical extend right here. Regardless that assets do recommend they’re going to all move on sale on the similar time, and both method a September 10 announcement remains to be most probably.
Even that isn’t set in stone even though, with @evleaks (a credible leaker) posting a timeline that means a overdue September announcement for the iPhone 11 vary.
As for the cost, there aren’t any actual rumors about that, however a lot of a worth upward push for probably the most elementary fashion turns out not likely, so we may well be taking a look at one thing very similar to the $749 / £749 / AU$1,229 beginning worth of the iPhone XR.
iPhone 11R or simply iPhone 11?
Something that we’re unclear on is what the iPhone 11R will in reality be referred to as, with one supply pointing simply to ‘iPhone 11’ (with the 2 extra top class fashions being referred to as iPhone 11 Professional and iPhone 11 Professional Max).
There’s additionally the query of whether or not ‘11’ can be used, or whether or not Apple will go for ‘XI’. Or most likely the quantity can be dropped altogether and we’ll merely get the ‘new iPhone’ or the iPhone R.
iPhone 11R design and show
The consensus thus far is that the design gained’t be converting a lot for the iPhone 11R, that means you’ll be able to nonetheless most likely be expecting a notch and a an identical general glance.
The only key distinction that has been closely rumored is the glance of the cameras even though, as those are actually anticipated to sit down in a sq. block on the best left nook, making them moderately extra outstanding than the iPhone XR’s small single-lens snapper.
Maximum leaks thus far display the extra top class iPhone 11 fashions, however the video underneath offers you a have a look at the imaginable design of all 3, entire with that digicam exchange.
The supply of this video additionally claims that the iPhone 11R can be 150.nine x 75.7 x 8.3mm, which is the same dimensions to the iPhone XR. So if true then there in point of fact gained’t be many adjustments in any respect.
Some other distinction may well be the colours, with the iPhone 11R rumored to land in black, white, yellow, lavender and inexperienced sun shades, as you’ll be able to see within the symbol underneath, appearing shards of glass supposedly supposed for the telephone.
You’ll additionally see the imaginable design of the iPhone 11R once more, this time within the type of case moldings. Somewhere else we’ve in a similar way heard communicate of black, white, gold and darkish inexperienced sun shades. There’s additionally the potential for a ‘rainbow’ end on some fashions – even though be expecting this to be refined if it sounds as if in any respect.
Reasonably much less convincingly we might also have noticed the iPhone 11R within the wild, showing within the mirrored image of a Galaxy Notice 10 Plus. It’s no longer the most productive of seems to be, but it surely presentations the redesigned digicam that we’re anticipating.
As for the show, rumors recommend that can keep at 6.1 inches and proceed to make use of LCD, moderately than OLED. On the other hand, it’s mentioned that the display screen may recreation some enhancements, similar to higher anti-aliasing. So don’t be expecting a large exchange right here. Assume refined.
iPhone 11R digicam
That is the most important exchange we’re anticipating for the iPhone 11R, with rumors no longer simply pointing to a brand new sq. form, as detailed above, but additionally to an additional lens, with the iPhone 11R concept to have two rear lenses, the place the iPhone XR has only one.
It’s imaginable that it might also have 3, as some telephones within the vary reportedly do, however two is taking a look the possibly quantity for now.
It’s anticipated that those lenses will each be 12MP, however a supply claims that they are going to be ‘new’, suggesting some upgrades.
It’s no longer transparent what roles the 2 lenses will serve – one is anticipated to be a typical lens, however the different may both be wide-angle or telephoto in line with leaks (with the iPhone 11 Max getting all 3). If we needed to wager, we’d say the 11R would get the telephoto lens, because the iPhone XS had a primary and telephoto aggregate. One record has additionally mentioned as a lot.
We’ve additionally heard that the picture sign processor may well be enhanced, and that the front-facing digicam can be boosted from 7MP to 12MP, and can incorporate an additional layer of glass to strengthen the standard of footage.
iPhone 11R battery and specifications
In line with one supply, the iPhone 11R may have a three,110mAh battery, which might make it round 5.7% higher than the two,942mAh one within the iPhone XR. That’s no longer a large bounce, however then the iPhone XR already has the most productive battery lifetime of any fashionable iPhone, in order that may well be all it wishes.
Somewhere else, revered analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has mentioned to be expecting a battery building up of round 5%, which tallies with the rumor above, so they may neatly be directly to one thing.
As for charging, whilst some early reviews steered Apple would possibly transfer to USB-C, maximum rumors level to Lightning ultimate. That is plausible, particularly on the subject of the iPhone 11R the place Apple can be seeking to stay prices down.
The iPhone 11R would possibly price rapid even though, with claims of an 18W charger doubtlessly coming within the field, even though somewhere else we’ve heard that it is going to persist with gradual 5W charging, so we’re no longer certain what’s true right here. If we needed to wager, we’d say sooner charging in this elementary fashion is not likely.
Transferring directly to core specifications, Apple is bound to incorporate a brand new chipset, prone to be dubbed the A13. Garage in the meantime may are available in at 64GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities, or 128GB, 256GB and 512GB, relying on which rumors you imagine – even though in each circumstances it’s no longer transparent whether or not all iPhone 11 fashions would get most of these sizes or no longer.
As for the running machine, that’s certain to be iOS 13. What the telephone virtually definitely gained’t have is 5G.
iPhone 11R different options
The iPhone 11R is bound to have Face ID in fact, but it surely may well be even higher this 12 months, with one supply pronouncing that it is going to paintings from a much wider vary of angles.
Past that we’re transferring into the territory of not likely issues. It’s rumored for instance that a minimum of some iPhone 11 fashions will strengthen the Apple Pencil, however we’re no longer satisfied, and if any do, the iPhone 11R can be ultimate in line.
We’ve additionally noticed patents for a digicam designed for underwater images, and an in-screen fingerprint scanner that might allow you to position your finger any place at the display screen to free up the telephone. However patents incessantly don’t get used, and if those ones can we’d assume they’re too top class for the options to look at the iPhone 11R.
