Apple iPhone’s 2019

To embark with iPhones, Kuo says that 2019 iPhones will retain an identical screen size. With that said, the overall design will remain the same as the conventional iPhone XS and iPhone XR. Also, all three iPhones will retain the proprietary Lightning connectivity instead of USB-C.

The differences in the 2019 iPhones will bring subtle improvements in the overall products. The 2019 iPhones will carry ultra-wideband connectivity for indoor positioning and navigation. Even more, like Samsung’s and Huawei’s, the 2019 iPhones will do reverse wireless charging. That means the Glass design will stay for another year. To improve the design, the new iPhones may carry frosted glass casing. Above all, Apple plans to upgrade the Face ID with a higher power flood illuminator. Additionally, all three iPhones will get upgrades in batteries. While the iPhone XS Max will get triple camera design, the iPhone XR may get a dual camera setup.

Apple iPad Lineup

According to Kuo, the iPad lineup will get an upgrade, as well. With that said, the current 9.7-inch iPad of 2018 will increase in size to 10.2-inches. We guess that the company may shrink the bezels even further, keeping the overall form factor identical. Also, the 2019 iPads will get an upgrade in processors, along with a new iPad mini.

Apple MacBook and Monitors

Apple will bring notable changes in its Mac lineup. According to the tipster, we may see a new MacBook Pro between 16-inches and 16.5-inches with an all-new design. Additionally, the company will bring an all-new 31.6-inch 6k3k monitor. We expect the monitors to carry Mini LED-like backlight design, to match with the modern standards.

Above all, the Mac Pro 2019 will get options to upgrade on long term support. Kuo says the 13-inch MacBook Pro may add a 32GB RAM option. In comparison, the 2018 13-inch MacBook Pro maxes out at 16GB of RAM only.
