  • 2019 iPhone 11 Rumors: The Latest on Specs, Details, & Leaks on iPhone XI

    2019 iphone design

    iPhone season is revving up. New rumors are swirling, everyone is dying to see what Apple is coming out with this year. Normally, we see a new redesign as we did in 2018, then a year of refinement, usually dubbed an "S year".

Will we see a completely different design philosophy now that Jony Ive has left? Are they really going to put three cameras on one iPhone? Let's take a look at what the experts are predicting for iPhone 2019!

    Rusty on your geometry skills? No worries, let's break it down. We'll define what makes a rucksack a rucksack, and it's similarities to a backpack, and what splits the difference.
