The iPhone range is slated to get a triple camera setup – dual setup for wide-angle and depth imaging, and a third lens setup for Time of Flight imaging, also known as ToF.
Recent iPhone 11 rumours have already suggested that Apple is planning to launch three iPhones this year which includes successors to the current generation iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR. The iPhone range is slated to get a triple camera setup – dual setup for wide-angle and depth imaging, and a third lens setup for Time of Flight imaging, also known as ToF. Other various online reports have also claimed that the upcoming iPhones will also get faster wireless support than any other already launched models of the iPhone. The support may also extend to Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, and even 5G probably.
In a report by MacRumors, Barclays analyst Blaine Curtis, after CES 2019, had stated that the new iPhones will support the new 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard, which is also known as Wi-Fi 6.
Apple had adopted the earlier Wi-Fi standard, the 802.11ac a few years back. Now Wi-Fi 6 is expected to bring users higher speeds, improved capacity, and better performance in crowded areas like concerts and sporting events. The Wi-Fi 6 is expected to be finished by this year. The new wireless standard will be more efficient when it comes to battery consumption and is tipped to be better than previous versions.
However, there are problems in supporting 802.11ax speeds this early with adoption technologies and support hardware which means users will have to wait for some time before the standard comes into the market scene fully. One of the first requirements would be to create compatible hardware to create Wi-Fi 6 ready wireless networks.
However, in regards to Apple’s history with adopting features, the Cupertino giant is not expected to bring the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard or even 5G connectivity for that matter, this year. Apple already was slow in bringing 3G and 4G connectivity to iPhones earlier, and this time could be no different. However, on the contrary, a Reuters report has enumerated that Apple has been considering various Qualcomm rivals including Samsung and MediaTek to supply 5G modems for their 2019 range of iPhones.
Apple is currently embroiled in a dispute with Qualcomm which could possibly hamper Apple’s plans to bring 5G connectivity to the next generation of iPhones.
